The Property

Occupying a wonderful village setting, boasting enclosed gardens, easy parking and contemporary living. This detached family home has been modernised by the current owners to now provide versatile and well proportioned accommodation. Nestled just 0.6 miles from the local primary school, the property is approached from a private driveway and unusually for the area enjoys parking for several vehicles. The main entrance opens to a most impressive reception hall, a room in its own right, the hall measures a generous 19ft and is exceedingly light with a picture window to the front elevation and French doors opening to the garden. From here stairs rise to the first floor whilst doors radiate to the living space. The sitting room is flooded with light, boasting a double aspect outlook, whilst the well appointed kitchen provides room for dining, patio doors to the rear garden and a stylish well equipped kitchen, boasting high gloss cabinets, a Smeg hob, Smeg double oven and Smeg sink. Adjoining the kitchen is a playroom, beyond which is study with external access. Also positioned on this level is a utility room/cloakroom. From the first floor landing doors open to a pretty balcony, an ideal spot to enjoy an evening drink or morning coffee with views of adjoining countryside. Bedrooms one and two are served by ensuite bathrooms whilst a family bathroom serves the remaining two bedrooms. Three bedrooms benefit from built in storage.


The property benefits from access across a private tarmac driveway which leads to a gated gravel parking area on which the current owners park a motor home and large family car. Pretty gardens enclosed by walling and fencing extend to the south east elevation and enjoy great privacy. A large decked seating area with raised planting and outside lighting provides an ideal spot for outside dining and entertaining. A former garage offers garden storage, whilst flower borders inject interest and colour. Beyond the deck is an expanse of lawn suitable for children to play as well as a raised area laid to bark and sheltered by a mature tree.  The tree has been used by the current owners to hang children’s play equipment. A gated pathway leads to the smaller rear garden which is conveniently located for access to the kitchen, this has been laid to astroturf for ease of maintenance.
