Mayes Lane, Sandon
| £850,000

Situated on a mature plot of about 0.75 of an acre is this established detached residence with farmland to the immediate rear aspect. Most unusual in design, the property offers spacious and most versatile accommodation over two floors totaling around 2,700 square feet. Along with a carriage driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles there is also a large double garage with a roller shutter door. On the ground floor, there are currently four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large reception hall, two large reception rooms, kitchen, utility and a good size conservatory. To the first floor are loft storage rooms along with a superb master bedroom suite with dressing room and bathroom. The property layout lends itself to not only a family home, but also home offices and annexe type accommodation, maybe for a dependent relative. Although the property does require a degree of modernisation, it does afford full central heating, all windows are double glazed and has solar panels fuelling electric and hot water also with a high feed-in tariff. Overall this is a large family home on a wonderful mature plot in a leafy country lane location. Energy rating G.
