The House: This solid and comfortable family home was constructed by Crowley Homes in 1999. We are advised that this is a warm property having the benefit of pumped cavity insulation, eco paper insulation and extensive double glazing. There is a good internal flow with lots of natural light and lots of unique internal features, which will be evident upon inspection. It has a combined and approximate floor area of 1300 sq. ft. and is good decorative order throughout. To the rear of the property lies an outdoor and partially covered decking area, with concrete base having a perspex and pillared surround. This area of (24′ x 10′) is in constant use and is both practical and is a delight to behold.
The Site: It extends to 0.82 of an acre of mainly level ground with mature tree surround. The property is accessed via a private avenue with a wooded canopy belt, overhang. The setting will greatly appeal to those who value and appreciate the beauty and merits of nature. The present owners have put a lot of thought and care into the landscaping and layout of the grounds. There is a perfusion and wide variety of shrubs, plants, fruit trees and bedded lawns, thereon. To the side of the property lies a workshop/ utility which is spacious and plumbed with the boiler house therein. There is also a separate garden shed/glass house, both of these units are discretely positioned, functional and useful.
NOTE: ‘From the outset of the build the planting schedule of the site focused on supporting a healthy native bio-diversity to provide food and shelter for the native fauna, including red squirrels, herons and owls. A succession of flowering perennials feed the bees and as the 12 apple and 3 cherry trees are well established, the humans are not forgotten either’.
