We don’t have an architect, but according to Richard, this was built in the 1960s by the mother of the current owner and is on the market for the very first time.

Trippet Villa (that’s the official name) is something of a time capsule too. Not completely – a look at the kitchen suggests some work has been undertaken there over the years. But generally, little has changed from the original layout.

Much to appreciate from that original 1960s build too, including the full length windows, the internal wood and brick finish, the flooring, the open layout and of course, your very own internal pool area.

Saying that, it probably does need a bit of work to bring it back to its best, with the agent adding that it has ‘enormous scope for further development. Hopefully that will involve working with the existing house, although with a plot of around 1.5 acres, you do wonder if this will be viewed as a development opportunity that doesn’t include it.

With the current layout, you get 3,000 sq. ft. of space, including four bedrooms plus en-suite shower room and family bathroom, along with the large open plan living room that incorporates the heated indoor swimming pool.

Outside you will find a gravelled drive with ‘generous’ turning and parking space, along with a detached brick built triple garage, a timber garden shed (in need of some work) and the garden itself, which is a mix of lawn, terracing, trees and shrubs. An ornamental fish pond and an outside fireplace / bbq too.
