This six-bedroom family home is accessed from an open porch into the entrance hall, which is a wide and well-lit area, offering access to the guest WC and a cloakroom.
Other ground floor reception rooms include a delightful dual aspect sitting room with French doors leading to the rear garden and a bay window to the front of the property. The formal dining room benefits from French doors leading out onto the rear patio. The study benefits from delightful views of the garden to the rear. The modern and well-equipped kitchen/diner is fitted with an array of wall and base cabinets including integrated appliances. The dining area of the kitchen overlooks the garden via a panoramic ‘wave system’ door and boasts a multi fuel log burner with space for a good-sized dining table; alternatively this could be used as a family snug. The utility room, located off the kitchen, has similar cabinet fittings and plumbing for a washing machine and a personal door with outside canopy to the side of the property. The property benefits from a Kinetico soft-water system.
The first floor continues to impress with its spacious landing. Bedroom one, currently used as the ‘master’, boasts built in wardrobes and storage, en-suite facilities with walk in shower, low level WC and wash basin and benefits from a large balcony overlooking the rear garden and views beyond.

The attractive detached double detached garage is situated to the front and side of the property with remote and electrically operated doors plus a personal side door. The room above the garage, accessed from the side stairs, is a purpose-built useful space which would make an ideal office or studio, but equally offers potential, should the necessary permissions be sought, to convert this to more permanent separate accommodation.
