DESCRIPTION East Hobbs offers well-proportioned accommodation including three reception rooms, all with double glazed sliding patio doors leading out to the patio area and rear garden and all of the bedrooms having built-in wardrobes. The property is perfectly positioned on the plot with space around for extensions and additional garaging (subject to planning). In terms of orientation, the main garden areas at the side and rear face southerly round to westerly and the large pond has vantage points to sit and enjoy the birds and wildlife it attracts....and yes, the pond does contain fish. The house has an EPC rating of B, with an air source heat pump, solar PV panels on the roof and UPVC double glazed windows and doors. The vendors have informed us that the ground loops are in place to connect to a ground source heating system, should any future owner wish to make the switch and install the necessary heat pump.
