4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

A rare opportunity to purchase a unique and picturesque 4 bedroom family property with planning permission to build an executive family home in the grounds, with further development potential on a 3/4 acre plot in a first class position in Alderbury. No forward chain!

One Oak is an impressive and highly appealing 4 bedroom family home positioned on a private drive in a premium location on Lights Lane in Alderbury. The house was originally built in the 1950’s which has subsequently been extended to create a large family home with accommodation of around 2,608 square feet (including garage). One Oak is accessed via wrought iron electric gates that lead up a sweeping drive to the property which gives a real sense of curb appeal and a wow factor on approach. The property has been in the same family for some 50 years and is being marketed with no forward chain. Although its fair to comment it would benefit from some modernisation recent improvements have been made to the property including a new slate roof, modern aluminium windows and decorative improvements both inside and out. There is also a recent successful planning application to build an additional dwelling in the front the garden creating a new highly desirable 2,200 square feet 4 bedroom family home. The existing property has excellent potential to create further accommodation either via an extension or located elsewhere on the plot turning it into a much larger house. There is further potential to create a second new build dwelling (subject to necessary consents) to the East of the existing house.

Internally the entrance hall has stairs to the first floor, the sitting room is particularly spacious with wonderful views over the garden via a large crescent shape window looking to the south/west, there is a open fireplace with attractive Minster stone surround and a wall has been removed between the sitting room and dining room creating a real feeling of space. The kitchen/breakfast room is an ‘L’ shape and is a particularly large room with a good selection of base and wall mounted storage, a central island, electric double oven, space for various white goods and attractive parquet flooring. There is a large east facing bay window and a pantry store where the boiler is housed. At the rear of the property there is a further reception room which could be a family room, study or occasional bedroom. The ground floor also has a shower room with corner shower, WC and wash hand basin.

On the first floor there are 4 large double bedrooms. The two main bedrooms are located at the front of the property; bedroom 1 has a built-in wardrobe and a door leading to an en-suite with bath, WC and wash hand basin. Bedroom 2 is a large double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and French doors leading onto a large balcony overlooking the gardens and on to the paddock land to the west.   
The family bathroom has a bath with separate shower, wc and wash hand basin.

Externally the property has a generous plot in excess of 3/4 acre of extremely well presented gardens with a great variety of mature and well established flowerbeds and hedgerows and specimen trees including Magnolias, Camelias, eating and cooking apples, a Pear tree, a Quince tree and a Judas tree. The lawn immediately in front of the property is particularly attractive and at the rear of the property there is a greenhouse area which would make an ideal additional terrace with a wonderful outlook over the paddock beside. The property has various garden sheds as well as a large double garage and ample parking. The beautiful gardens are a key selling feature of this property and ideal for a green fingered buyer.
One Oak is an exceptional property which should be viewed to appreciate its wonderful position and the potential on offer.

Planning Permission
One Oak has had a recent successful application (PL/2022/30551) granted for a wonderfully designed property of approximately 2,200 square feet located to the left of the access which would create a handsome 4 bedroom family home. The accommodation for this new this property has been well laid out and would comprise a large sitting room, spacious kitchen/dining room/snug, play room, utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor there will be 4 large double bedrooms with 2 bathrooms (en-suite to the master). There would also be a detached double garage and ample garden. This will leave One Oak with over half an acre of grounds allowing the opportunity for further development potential - one could add a large extension to the main house creating further accommodation or indeed ancillary accommodation separate from the property (subject to necessary consents). There is a very obvious place to add a second separate dwelling (subject to necessary consents). One Oak offers a high degree of development potential which should be appealing to both developers as well as end users looking for a first class family home.
