Beeches is a substantial semi-detached Edwardian house with attractive boulder flint elevations, brick quoins, and original timber fenestration, all under a pitched and tiled roof. The house occupies an excellent plot with a frontage of some 60' and an approximate depth of 158' and, subject to consents, there may be the opportunity to sub-divide the garden to create a building plot for a separate dwelling, or to enlarge the existing family home to complement the sizeable gardens. Beeches contains features of the period including fireplaces, panelled doors and original joinery, and many of the rooms enjoy a double aspect with sash windows, creating a light and spacious feel, overlooking the south-west facing gardens. There is a modern boiler and gas-fired central heating to radiators.
