Gardens of Gray is a charming detached house offering attractive well proportioned family accommodation in a lovely semi-rural setting. Thought to have been constructed in the 1950’s on the site of a previous market garden, the house is of an attractive painted harled brick construction under a red tiled roof. The porch gives access to the spacious main ground floor hallway which in turn offers access to the principal reception rooms. The sitting room benefits from attractive living flame gas fire along with window seat and direct access to the terrace, with the dining room being of a good size with charming bay window. Adjacent to the good breakfasting kitchen is a cosy snug with multi-fuel stove and large picture window to the terrace and garden. There is a useful utility area off the rear hallway which offers direct internal access to the double garage. An attractive wooden staircase leads to the first floor landing where there are three well proportioned double bedrooms, single bedroom, bathroom and shower room. A Ramsay ladder gives access to a substantial floored attic which it is thought may have further development potential subject to all consents and permissions being obtained.
