Now Is Your Chance

NOW IS YOUR CHANCE - South Landing is coming to the market for the first time in over 35 years, testament to the village that the current owners have never had the want to leave but having loved living here now it is time for a change of lifestyle. When they first visited here all those years ago they were struck by the way the light streamed through the entire home, and nothing has changed.

This home is sat towards the top of this unique village which I still dearly love, when you look around locally this is the only true village left with some genuine amenities. A quintessential English village, it`s well-known for its picturesque setting and traditional local amenities, including GP Practice/ Pharmacy, General Store, Post Office and two pubs plus a thriving community with Parish Hall and a Church. There is something for everyone here so growing up, settling down or retiring it can work for you.

So on arrival you notice the elevated position which has a good feel to it, the sweeping driveway then gives plenty of parking for numerous vehicles and leads through to the garage.
Walking inside the entrance porch you are then led through to the entrance hall which is a good size. Turning right you are taken into the huge main living room, this is one of the areas that the previous owners saw fit to extend and it now gives a vast 18 by 17ft space that would more than enough for anyone.

You then have double doors which lead through to the also extended dining room, this space again is excellent with views out onto the gardens. With the kitchen adjoining you can also see that there is scope here to make changes for yourself at some point should you wish too, the creation of a kitchen / living/ dining space would really work. The light really does flood in through the large patio doors and window that accesses and give views outside.

Walking through to the kitchen it is all in good order and functioning well but is a more traditional style in fantastic condition and beautifully kept. Some modern appliances have been integrated but there are also space for freestanding depending on what you need. Carrying on along the back of the property you have a huge storeroom, cloakroom and utility so you really do have all that you would need here and in lovely condition but with some great potential to also change.

When you sit back and really take in the sheer space on the ground floor as a whole I think you’ll be impressed, it’s not always about the number of rooms but the sizes and space they give.

Moving upstairs the space gets even better due to the integral garage. The landing space is excellent and really feels like it leads somewhere and then you have the five bedrooms to use as you see fit. Bedroom one is a fantastic size with a range of built in wardrobes and en suite shower room, the overall floor space is excellent. Bedrooms two, three and four are also great rooms serviced by a large family bathroom. Bedroom five is then still a good single room or study if you wanted.

To the outside, we have already covered the extensive frontage which sets the scene well but now to the rear gardens. It’s a lovely garden, very simple with large lawn area but then really well planted borders with a combination of established shrubs and colourful flowers keeping this rural feel. The terrace area immediately abutting the home gives a seating and dining space which then continues around to the sideway and access the front.

All in all this is a lovely home that the current owners have adored for many many years and now is just time to allow someone else the chance of life here in this beautiful village. Do call us for a personal tour.
