Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale 'Sunnymead', a superbly presented and maintained detached home located on the outskirts of the town of Royston. Situated on a generous plot in the region of a third of an acre this delightful home is surrounded by open countryside views, a perfect setting if you want to be close to amenities whilst being in a rural setting. There are many unique features to this very versatile home which we will tell you all about, so read on.

You approach the property via a gravelled driveway entrance with hedges along the roadside that create a perfect degree of privacy. The driveway provides off street parking for multiple vehicles and leads to a detached double garage with an electric door and with power and light connected. If you are a car enthusiast, either for pleasure or work, you will find an extremely useful inspection pit inside.

To the rear of the garage is an annexe, something rarely found with many properties but so often desired. This is separate from the main property and ideal if you have an elderly or young family member wanting independent living space but still close by. Alternatively, you could generate an additional rental income or perhaps you may want this space for commercial use if you work from home or have your own business and again want to be away from the main living accommodation. With the stunning views it's a perfect place to live or work! The annexe comprises of an entrance hall, lounge, dining room, kitchen, double bedroom, bathroom and off the rear you have a patio area that is private from the main gardens.

Going to the main residence, the property has been extended over the years, both to the side and above what was original a single storey residence. The property is well presented throughout and having been regularly updated. With neutral décor throughout you can certainly move straight in and put your own stamp on it if you wish. The property currently comprises of a generous entrance hall, cloakroom, lounge, dining room, conservatory, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, study, 2 bedrooms on the ground floor including a master with en-suite, family bathroom and a further two bedrooms and shower room on the first floor. However, if you want more reception rooms then you have that opportunity, or if you require more bedrooms then you can achieve this, as we say, the property is extremely versatile for any individuals or family's needs. Also of note, is the ample storage throughout the property, as well as an extremely spacious walk in loft room.

Going back outside, you will find gardens surrounding the property to all aspects, including the patio area that is in a perfect south facing position to benefit from sun all day long. Due to the size of the plot there is still ample space for further extensions or potential outbuildings if desired. There is currently a combination of lawned areas, vegetable patch and patio areas that benefit from the afternoon sun and where you can sit and admire those stunning views. Finally, a hidden gem, is an old underground air raid shelter that is quite something. With power and light connected this can be just a feature to show your friends or it could make an ideal storeroom or workshop for example. It's a great piece of history that the property holds.

With so much to offer we encourage anyone to come and take a look at 'Sunnymead', there's not another property like this and rarely do you find a home with so much to offer. This property is sold with the advantage of no upward chain.
