A rare opportunity to purchase a larger than average three bedroom 1950’s detached house, spanning over 1,400 sq. ft., set within a 0.5 acre plot, located on the outskirts of the desirable village of Copthorne. The house is in need of modernisation and updating, however provides the potential to become a wonderful family home set within a set a private plot. This is the first time that the house has been brought to the open market since it was built in the 1950’s. On entering the house, you are met with a large hallway with under stairs cupboard, stairs rising to the first floor and door access to the living room, dining room, kitchen and downstairs cloakroom. The living room has a large bay window to the front, and an electric fire in front of an open fireplace with tiled surround. The dining room has windows to the rear and patio doors that open out onto the garden, original wooden floorboards, and an electric fire in front of an open fireplace with tiled surround. The kitchen has a window overlooking the rear garden and door leading to the rear, original terracotta floor tiles, wall and base units, pantry cupboard, ceramic butler sink, space and plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher, and a newly installed Worcester boiler. The downstairs cloakroom has a frosted window to the side with a sink and a WC.
On the first-floor landing is a large window to the side with secondary glazing, airing cupboard with tank and storage, and loft access to a good-sized loft with light that could easily be converted (subject to necessary planning) into another room. Bedroom one is a large double with bay window with secondary glazing that faces the front, and original wooden floorboards. Bedroom two is also a large double with secondary glazed window to the rear. Bedroom three is still a double and faces with front with secondary glazing and original wooden flooring. The bathroom has a frosted window to the rear with bath with mixer taps and hand-held shower attachment. There is also a sink, W/C and heated towel rail.
Outside there is a detached one a half width garage with roller shutter door, windows to the side and rear and door to the side. There is a further large storage area to the front of the garage with a corrugated roof that has planning permission, so this area could feasibly be extended out in line with the front of the storage area if desired. There is greenhouse that abuts the rear of the garage. It is understood that the garage was originally built with footing deep enough to carry a second storey. There is another large storage area to the side of the house again with a corrugated roof that again has planning permission granted for its erection. This again could mean that there is feasibility to extend on this same footprint if desired.
The house sits on ½ acre plot (TBV) and is a good symmetrical plot with the house sitting nicely in the middle which therefore provides a generous and relatively equal front and rear garden. To the front of the house, there is off road parking for three cars on the existing driveway. The front plot provides many options to enhance further with further parking, lawn areas, or perhaps even a further detached car port or garaging to be erected (subject to necessary planning). The front of the plot is screened by talk trees and hedging. The South Westerly facing rear garden is a generous size and provides a blank canvass to create a fantastic garden. The rear garden is well screened by further matures trees and backs onto woodland.
