Ivy Gate are proud to present to the market this unique opportunity to purchase a substantial detached property sitting on a double plot in the highly sought after ‘Coombe-Side’ area. This spacious chalet bungalow style property currently comprises; entrance porch, large hallway giving access to five separate and well-proportioned reception rooms that could be used to the new owners preference, i.e. bedrooms, sitting rooms, study etc. in its current state, but could also be knocked through/converted into much larger open plan living accommodation. What is currently the main sitting room has newly fitted French doors leading to the large private rear garden. Also to the ground floor is a full sized bathroom and kitchen which in turn gives access to a more temporary ‘lean-to’ structure, giving the opportunity to extend the kitchen or create a utility room. To the first floor lies the master bedroom, with spacious ensuite bathroom and dressing room. There is also unique walk in access to the first floor ‘loft’ space which is yet to be converted in to another room but has enormous potential to fit two double bedrooms and a bathroom STPP.
The property further benefits from off street parking for two cars and the large frontage could easily be made in to an in/out carriageway driveway. There is also a garage with access into the rear garden, double glazed windows throughout and side access to both sides of the property. The rear garden has a large patio area that wraps around the rear of the property with the remainder being vegetated with some mature trees/shrubbery. There is also a pond and large shed in the garden.
This is a unique opportunity to purchase a vast plot with a detached property that could be easily adapted to suit the new owners’ needs. There is huge potential STPP to extend the property both to the ground floor and first floor, extensively increasing the current square footage and condition of the property throughout. This lovely home would be suitable for a variety of buyers, either local families looking to take on a project to allow them to upsize or equally those moving out from Central London who want to put their own stamp on a property and maximise the space this property could potentially offer.
