A stunning detached period family home set on a large plot of approximately one third of an acre, with an abundance of original or reinstated features including working Victorian fireplaces.
The current owners are only the second family to have resided at 'Melchett' and have lived in the house for some thirty years. During this time they have lovingly refurbished the property, whilst retaining it's wonderful character and charm.
The accommodation comprises a traditional living room to the front, a formal dining room that leads on to the conservatory, the latter overlooks the beautiful large South facing garden. There is a country style kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, downstairs cloakroom, three well-proportioned bedrooms and a traditional Victorian style 4-piece bathroom suite, this includes a shower cubicle and free-standing roll top bath. There is a single garage and large country style wooden bike shed to the side.
Off road parking is superb, with ample space for several vehicles, an area to one side of the house has been used previously to park a large motorhome. The rear garden is large and mainly laid to lawn with the benefit of being South facing for all day sun and perfect for families.
