Built at the turn of the 19th century and constructed of block walls with pebble render under a tiled roof, Youngwoods is a unique family property sitting centrally within its own gardens and among fields and surrounding woodlands, providing comfortable and well-proportioned accommodation that retains plenty of character with high ceilings and wood floorings, including wooden features such as original doors and skirting. There is a good range of family space with two reception rooms in addition to a modern open plan kitchen/dining room and conservatory that opens on to the garden terrace. The property boasts off road parking for numerous vehicles. There is further development potential with historic planning achieved and foundations laid for a two storey extension with underground garaging, should someone wish to take the property on to the next level.
