Step into the stunning open plan kitchen & dining area, boasting a part vaulted ceiling, peninsula island and Bi-Fold doors to the expansive rear garden.
As you traverse back toward the hall there is a clever utility space created. To the first floor, the main bedroom looks out over the 38m private garden, and has fitted wardrobes. Bedroom two, with views to the front has created an ingenious small study space. Its worth noting the bedrooms both have concealed original fireplaces, easy to repatriate if you wished.

The property is set back from the charming Green and offers two hard standing off road parking spaces. There is a shared alleyway access to the rear garden, which has been well landscaped to provide a substantial patio area, stepped paving, beds and borders for specimen planting. Mature trees add privacy. As noted the aforementioned garden studio offers a myriad of possibilities, but there is also a decked area to front to welcome the West setting sun with a couple of G&T's! A garden shed is present for all your gardening items.
Located within walking distance of the town, station & beautiful 63 acre common, this grade II listed property is also a house of "Special Interest". As a fine example of early Garden City architecture, Westholm is the earliest known scheme based on the traditional village green layout and combined with the substantial 1/3 acre plot, offers the buyer the vision of country living in a town - precisely the ethos of the founding fathers of the Garden City.
