Occupying a secluded position at the head of a private road within this highly regarded and much sought after residential
area. Accessed by electronic gates is this substantial, totally immaculate and beautifully presented character property of
considerable proportions. Offered for sale for the first time Springhead Cottage provides a tremendous opportunity for two
families or those with dependant relatives to live together, rarely does such a quality home with so much potential make
the open market. The main house provides an attractive, light and airy home with many unique and interesting features.
The accommodation includes five bedrooms, two with en-suite, an extremely spacious 27’through lounge and fabulous
fitted kitchen with family dining area. Sympathetically improved and modernised in recent years great care has been
taken with this property and the result is a successful combination of contemporary styling and modern day fittings,
together with a wealth of character which is provided by many traditional features. Adjacent to the main dwelling is a
separate property with a large double garage, kitchen, shower room and a first floor snooker / games room with a full size
snooker table (not included). With planning permission approved for a three bedroom detached house and the main
construction already completed, internal partitioning is all that is required to create a separate family size home within the
same grounds. Very highly recommended this is a rare and very special property which deserves immediate attention.
