THE PROPERTY is one of four self-contained flats within a block of four built for social housing in the 1950's featuring cavity brick walls, partly rendered and colourwashed under a concrete tiled roof. These properties were well built and have stood the test of time. Flat 14 is on the ground floor, has been in the same ownership for many years, and is now in need of cosmetic improvement. It enjoys electric heating, double-glazing, a modern hot water tank with immersion fitted and large gardens to the front and rear to preserve outlook and privacy for this flat.

The rooms are well proportioned with large double-glazed windows affording pleasant outlooks and views to the Church spire and distant hillsides. The property benefits from electric heating and a recently installed wet room. The former wash house now provides a laundry/utility room and workshop with gardener's toilet.

There is an enclosed garden to the rear with outbuildings and a gated hardstanding for 2 cars.
