Beautiful four bedroom detached Victorian villa with fully self-contained annexe set in extensive grounds in a quiet and peaceful setting in Hunter Street, Kirn. ‘Fairfield’ has been upgraded and modernised in recent times whilst sympathetically retaining the original features and comprises, in addition to the four bedrooms, a formal sitting room, spacious dining kitchen, garden room and family bathroom. The annexe would be ideal as a granny or teenager’s flat as it consists of a long open plan living area with the dining kitchen at one side and the lounge at the other, double bedroom and bathroom. The annexe can be reached both externally and internally so it could also be used as a lucrative holiday let should the new owners wish. The property boasts extensive front and back gardens complete with decking, summer house, a partially complete utility outhouse and a sweeping driveway that leads to the double garage as well as the rear of the property. This would undoubtedly make a stunning family or retirement home and should be seen to be fully appreciated.
