5.58 ACRES (stms) - Fleet - Spalding
A Character Detached Three Bedroom Property With Stabling & Paddocks.
5.58 ACRES (stms) - Situated in a rural location outside the village, this detached house offers well presented accommodation which is ready to move straight into. To the rear of the house are stables and level pasture land, divided into paddocks that have a separate vehicular access. The property is set back from the road behind a mature hedge with gates leading to a parking and turning space for several vehicles. Having recently undergone thoughtful refurbishment, including repainting of the exterior, new ‘Sanderson’ shutters to most of the windows, this is a home that still retains many character features. Planning was previously granted for a single storey extension and a garage to the rear (02-09-2013) which has now lapsed (02-09-2016) but in the agent’s opinion, a further application should prove successful if desired.
