Sporhams Lane, Danbury
| £870,000

A most substantial and individual detached residence dating from the 1850's and located in a wonderful countryside setting on the edge of Danbury. Set on a plot of over three quarters of an acre with immediate far reaching farmland views. The property does require a degree of modernisation and some structural works. Accommodation includes three/four bedrooms and a bathroom to the first floor. On the ground floor there is a triple aspect sitting room, dining room, open plan kitchen and breakfast room and a utility. There are stairs from the landing to the loft room which in the past had two large dormer windows. In our opinion, the property offers ample scope for extension and improvement. Externally, the house is approached via a long private driveway with a turning circle and parking area. The gardens are mainly lawn with many mature trees and shrubs. The outbuildings comprise of 36' barn, large store room and carport; again in our opinion ideal for conversion to a leisure building, home office or gym etc. Sporhams Lane is a leafy country lane between Danbury & Sandon. Energy Rating F.
