A corner placed freehold, detached, family residence of unique charm and genuine character, believed to date back, in origin, to the late 18th Century, on the rural fringe of the 'ever popular' village of Fradley. Having been the most welcoming of family homes for over fifty years it is time for the next chapter in the history of this wonderful property, with potential purchasers benefiting from many diligent years by the current owners, extending and improving the property to produce, what is now, a considerable family home extending to some 1,970 sq.ft. The most recent renovations being undertaken by RJK Construction the renowned local builders. The opulent ground floor boasts a reception hall, formal living room, sitting room, garden room, kitchen diner and spacious dining room in addition to the more functional utility and two cloakrooms. The first floor provides five bedrooms including two bedroom suites with en suite showers and a further family bathroom with wc and shower.

Beautifully manicured and designed to offer the perfect mix of shaped lawns, established beds, borders and seating areas. Stocked with a wonderful array of mature trees, shrubs and flowering plants. Particular attention should be paid to the covered canopy entrance to the living room and the Wendy House. A brick outbuilding with tiled roof which has provided the vendors' daughters, and now their grandchildren, with many years of entertainment.
