Full Details

ABOUT FIR HILL Fir Hill is a unique and individual detached property which we understand was constructed circa 1962 it has remained in the ownership of the same family ever since. It occupies a pleasant residential location where properties of this size and stature are rare to the open market. The property is offered for sale with vacant possession and no vendor chain.

The property is of traditional stone built construction under a pitched stone slate roof. At the time it was built the works appear to have been carried out to a high standard but the fixtures and fittings would now be considered dated so we do anticipate that buyers will look to renovate to their own tastes.

It is entered through a spacious entrance hall with grand staircase with the remaining ground floor accommodation comprising: large lounge, garden room, dining room, kitchen, downstairs wc, utility and pantry. Upstairs there is a large landing, 4 generous double bedrooms, en-suite and house bathroom.

The property is accessed down a winding driveway which provides generous parking and leads to the large detached garage. There are generous gardens surrounding the property, predominantly to the side and rear.

We feel that the property offers excellent potential to redesign the existing accommodation, extend and renovate to the purchaser's own tastes. There is also the space and scope to build an additional dwelling on the side garden plot - this would be subject to planning permission being obtained.
