Situated in a leafy location in the desirable hamlet of Durris we are pleased to offer for sale this FOUR BEDROOM DETACHED DWELLINGHOUSE which is set within 12 acres of Ground. The property has been enjoyed by the present owner for 50 years and could benefit from a degree of modernisation to bring it up to a modern standard. Upon entering the property from the vestibule access is given to the inner hallway. The spacious lounge enjoys views over the front and rear garden and features an open fireplace set on a stone hearth and steps lead up to the sun room which again enjoys views over the garden. The well proportioned kitchen is fitted with a range of beech base and wall units and the integrated hob and double oven are to remain. From here a step leads up to the dining area and in turn to the music room which could lend its self to a number of uses. This bright and airy room is situated at the rear of the property and a door leads out to the garden. The master suite is fitted with an extensive range of built in wardrobes and storage and access is given to the en suite bathroom. Also located on the ground floor is a useful utility room with store room attached. A traditional staircase leads to the upper landing which gives access to three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property is served by oil central heating and a combination of single and double glazing.
A gravel driveway leads to the front of the property and provides a spacious parking and turning area. The enclosed gardens extend to approximately 2 acres and are mostly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees and flowers and plants. The 5 acre field is fully enclosed and would be ideal for equestrian or agricultural use together with a further 5 acres of mature woodland is also included. The property on the road side is bounded by a high stone wall adding to the privacy of this home.
Although in need of modernisation and renovation the property could be a lovely family home set within private garden grounds. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the spacious accommodation and grounds it has to offer.
