The Secret Garden is one of those rare properties that come up every so often that truly breaks the mould. It is a charming character cottage that is situated on a quiet no-through road that is within walking distance of the town centre yet it offers off-road parking for 4 cars in addition to an 18'7 x 14'2 (5.66m x 4.32m) Detached Garage. The real prize here though is the fantastic and extensive lawned garden from which the property takes its name. For gardening enthusiasts or for those with children, this will provide an absolute haven of tranquillity and will offer almost unlimited potential to be made your own. For those with investment in mind, there is the possibility here for a building plot, subject to planning approval. In the least, there is the option to make an income from the generous parking and garaging. The house, itself, benefits from a new roof, gas fired central heating and UPVC double glazing throughout. The whole plot is offered to the open market with the distinct advantage of no onward chain. When this property last came to the market, it sold instantly well beyond the asking price.
