High Street, Irchester

£450,000 - Sold S.T.C.

An increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a detached village property on a substantial private plot with potential for extension or redevelopment (subject to gaining all necessary consents). The house dates from approximately 1960 and occupies a total plot that extends in total to around 0.49 acre (0.198 hectare).

The current property comprises a spacious 5 bedroom detached chalet style house which could be refurbished in its current format if a redevelopment or extension wasn't wanted. The large wooded garden is a real feature and adjoins countryside on the eastern boundary.

The property has gas radiator central heating, hardwood framed double-glazing, ample parking and a sectional concrete garage.

Harwoods hold keys for accompanied viewings. Please ring to book an appointment.
