Property Snapshot

Sparrows Roost is charming, detached period cottage situated on the edge of Dunley village, with fantastic panoramic views across neighbouring fields to Witley Hills and Netherton. The cottage has an interesting history, having previously been the village post office in a former life.

The property is set well apart from neighbours and has light and airy interiors and good outside space, inside many of the rooms have dual aspect windows making the most of the superb views.

Having been much improved by the current owners, the property offers further potential should purchasers wish to extend the current footprint of accommodation, subject to securing relevant planning permissions.

Sparrows Roost is approached from the Dunley Road via a shared lane which is owned by the neighbouring property who grants rights of access to our client. To the side of the property is a private gravelled driveway which is for the sole use of Sparrows Roost and can cater for around three to four vehicles.

From the parking area steps rise to an enclosed double-glazed porch, a front door opens into the hallway which has doors leading to the sitting room and a useful guest cloakroom.

The delightful sitting room is incredibly light and airy with three double-glazed windows providing dual aspect views across neighbouring countryside. This lovely reception room has a neat feature fireplace housing a wood burner, quality 'Karndean' flooring, wall lights, a radiator and doors leading to the adjoining dining room, kitchen and cellar.

The bay fronted dining room has a double-glazed window to the front aspect and dual aspect double-glazed windows and a door leading to the front porch.
