Bellevue is a beautifully presented family home which has been well maintained by the current owners, including significant improvements to the property by replacing/ modernising the shower and bathroom. The house is fitted with UPVC double glazing throughout, and mains gas central heating as well as a wood burning stove in the living room. Outside the property sits in an elevated position in the centre of the village with parking area and private driveway and large garden to the rear, with view to the surrounding countryside.
The house is approached via a tarmac bellmouth, leading to an extensive brick block paved private driveway with feature shrubbery border to the side, containing mature heathers and young conifers. The paved driveway leads to a large area of lawn with fruit trees and raised vegetable beds, two sheds, and an adjoining log store with wooden fence to the rear overlooking the neighbouring farmland. There is an area of hardstanding with further shed to the side of the property. Steps lead down to gravelled pathway at the rear door, and a raised patio seating area, directly accessed through double doors leading from the Kitchen/Dining. The current owners have added a children’s treehouse with swings to the rear of the garden. The garden is fully enclosed.
