The Property Built in the 1970s, this much loved family home has generously proportioned and naturally light accommodation. The vendors have put their own stamp on the property over the years and have added quirky and artistic features along with carrying out general maintenance and improvements including upvc windows to part and solar roof panels. A purpose built ground floor extension has also been added which comprises a bedroom, wet room and rear lobby with access directly into the rear garden and this is linked to the house rather unusually by a Russian railway carriage. A ground floor shower room offers flexibility and there is a first floor shower room which would now benefit from an update. The kitchen has a good number of storage cupboards and a door opens from here directly into the double garage which doubles up as a utility room.

This woodland also encompasses wood cabins which have power and water connected and at the far southern corner the woodland connects with the river Thet where there lies a further log cabin/studio, pagoda and additionally a Russian themed river boat moored to the river bank.
