PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: Set on an exclusive country lane which leads directly to Arger Fen and Spouse's Vale Nature Reserve, is a four/five-bedroom detached property offered to the market for the first time since its construction in 1972. Positioned on the much sought-after Locks Lane, the property offers an accommodation schedule of approximately 2,670 sq ft and sits centrally within its 0.3-acre grounds and enjoys an enviable setting with views across meadow land to both front and rear elevations. Offering considerable potential to improve, Clock House has retained a wealth of its original features including parquet flooring, a redbrick fireplace with inset wood burning stove, UPVC framed double-glazing and an oil-fired central heating system. Ideally placed as a family home, the accommodation in its present form is arranged via three ground-floor reception rooms with an expansive kitchen/breakfast room, complementing en-suite facilities to the principal bedroom and scope for further adaption and extension if so required (subject to the necessary planning consents). Further benefits to the property include a double garage with extensive loft storage space, ample frontage, established rear gardens and a direct aspect across meadow land to rear.
