Fine and Country are delighted to offer, as the vendor's exclusive agent, this hugely extended and improved family home in the very desirable village of Upwood. Woodglen is an imposing 1930's detached house set in half an acre, set back from the road behind electric gates. The accommodation consists of five generous reception rooms, four bedrooms and two family bathrooms. The master suite also boasts a marvellous terrace for a morning coffee or an evening gin and tonic. There is still further scope to extend and improve to create a dream 'forever home,' and is easily adaptable to create independent living accommodation or an annexe. To the front, a block-paved carriage drive provides off-street parking for many cars, with potential to add a garage block (subject to the usual consents, with lapsed planning permission granted). There are also generous side and rear gardens, which are mostly South and West facing, and a well-maintained swimming pool and pool house. This property is offered with no onward chain.

"We've always loved how Woodglen sits in the middle of the plot and we get to enjoy the full effect of the surrounding gardens and views of the countryside," say the vendors.

"The house is very peaceful and there is always somewhere quiet to escape to when we are in need of some down time. The sunroom is a fabulous room that overlooks the garden and it is always warm and full of natural light. I can spend hours tucked away in there with the newspapers and a good book whilst relaxing in the comfortable armchair."

"We enjoy sitting out in the beautifully landscaped garden as it's very private and not overlooked. It is fully enclosed with three sunny decked areas, one of which overlooks the swimming pool, so we can sit in the sunshine and watch the children playing in the pool. We've hosted lots of family celebrations over our 18 years here, including pool parties and BBQs as there is plenty of room for everyone to relax and easily mingle. We also grow our own fruit and vegetables in the greenhouse and raised beds which have been very productive."

"The location is fabulous as we can walk in the surrounding farmland or in the beautiful bluebell woods, yet everything we need is easily accessible. The nearby town of Ramsey has a thriving High Street and offers a good choice of restaurants and shops, as well as an indoor market and a weekly outdoor market. The new library is a fantastic addition to the area too."

"We enjoy the beautiful views over the countryside and swimming pool from the balcony in the master bedroom. It's the ideal spot for a cup of coffee in morning or a glass of wine in the evening."

"We've always felt very safe here as the electric gates and long driveway offer a sense of security and privacy."

"The house and garden are perfect for entertaining. There is room to park up to 8 cars on the driveway and we've hosted lots of family celebrations, including a 30th and an 80th birthday party."

"We will miss the peace and tranquility but as we have now retired, the time is right to spend more time in our holiday home in Europe. We are buying another property in Upwood though, as we love the area so much and want to keep a foothold here in the village."
