DESCRIPTION Kirkland Garage is a spacious single storey property with generous outbuildings, which sits within a generous site and has views over the garden and surrounding countryside from the living room, kitchen and second bedroom.The kitchen is filled with natural light and forms the hub of this family home where there is space to dine and relax around the kitchen table with direct access to the garden, and to the living room adjacent. Of modern contemporary finish, an integrated double oven and grill provide cooking facilities in addition to two double ring gas hobs. In addition there is a second integrated oven in in the outbuilding in the garden, space and plumbing for white goods and a second double sink. The Master Bedroom is a room which is flooded by natural light, benefiting from the double aspect, with a row of windows along the front overlooking the entrance and further windows to the side, a single step within the room drops down to a slightly lower level at the front. The spacious family bathroom, which again is of contemporary finish has a bath and shower and sits between bedrooms 2 and 3. Central heating is powered by a Worcester Bosch 18/25 external boiler and the property is double glazed throughout. With high speed broadband and the extensive outbuildings make this property an attractive option to those working or running a business from home. The grounds, fruit cage and polytunnel also support the idea of a buyer seeking outside space to ‘grow their own’ fruit and veg, more self-sufficient. NB. There is a right of access to a neighbouring property from the main road which splits off to a separate drive way before reaching Kirkland Garage. Please refer to the site plan.
