Oakleigh is a handsome stone-clad double-fronted property offering flexible accommodation arranged in an L-shaped configuration over two floors, sensitively extended from its initial construction as a bungalow to add additional first floor space. While the property would benefit from some cosmetic modernisation, it offers the prospective purchaser the opportunity to re-configure and update the space to create a truly stunning family home.

The ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming reception hall and briefly comprises a generous sitting room, a spacious dining room and a galley-style kitchen with a range of wall and base units with space for modern integrated appliances and a glazed door to the rear terrace. The ground floor accommodation is completed by three generous double bedrooms, one with a sink and all with built-in storage, together with a fully-tiled family bathroom.

Stairs rise from the reception hall to the first floor which offers a spacious bedroom, currently being used as a drawing room, with large picture windows and an inter-connecting store room with potential for conversion to additional accommodation if required.
