Full Details

ABOUT DALVEEN This unique and individually designed family home was build circa 1929. It is of traditional stone built construction under a 3 sectioned rosemary tiled roof and features a wealth of detailing to its exterior superb bay and mullioned windows and a grand external chimney stack.

The property has remained in the same ownership since 1968 but is now offered for sale allowing a new owner to purchase and make their own. The property was extended to the side during the 1970s to create a large garden / sitting room and we feel that there is much further potential for a new owner to extend and redesign to their own tastes (subject to the necessary consents).

Internally the property features a wealth of period details which are in the style of the Arts and Crafts movement including a wonderful Inglenook fireplace and bay window to the lounge and a similarly impressive staircase in the hall. It also features original metal framed windows with leaded glazed windows throughout most of the house. There is a gas central heating system with a recently installed (2018) ATAG boiler.

The house is entered through an open porch to the front which leads into the hall. From here the lounge, garden room, dining room and downstairs WC can be accessed. A further rear hall gives access to the kitchen and pantry. Beyond this is a further open porch with access to the laundry room / utility and an outside store.

Upstairs there is a galleried landing area overlooking the stairwell with 4 bedrooms and a house bathroom. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room and access to an under eaves storage area. There is a further eaves store off the 3rd bedroom with possible potential for a further en-suite.

Externally there is a driveway and generous parking area to the front and side with a pleasant terraced garden to the front. A detached double garage was constructed within the last 15 years and this is located to the side of the house. Beyond this there is a sloping grassed paddock with a small orchard wrapping around the side and rear of the property taking the total site area to in excess of an acre. The orchard area offers great scope to make a kitchen garden and includes a greenhouse.
