Property Description

Stepping into this immaculately presented property, the spacious entrance hallway shows you just how much accommodation is offered. To the right, the sitting room is a generous size, with French doors to the sunroom and a feature wood burning stove. The downstairs study faces the front aspect and could also be used as a bedroom or playroom if desired. The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of solid oak base and wall units and space for appliances. The Smeg Range oven was new less than two years ago. The dishwasher, tumble dryer and oven will all be included within the sale. The utility room is located next to the kitchen and has a separate sink, further space for appliances and access to the rear. The wet room has a shower, toilet, and basin. The sunroom is a beautiful room, overlooking the views of the rear garden.
Upstairs, on the first floor there is a generous master bedroom suite with a well-appointed en-suite shower room. Three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom can be found off the landing. The bathroom boasts a free-standing bath, toilet and basin and has been renovated by the current owners. The attic offers space for storage although there is potential to create a further bedroom if desired (stp). There is a fitted ladder which drops down for access to the attic.
Outside, through the five-bar gated entrance a wide shingle driveway runs to the front and side of the house, providing plenty of parking up to the carport and detached double garage, the garage is fitted with electric doors and electric car charging point. Upstairs, the attic has been converted to an extremely well-appointed office, which could equally well serve as a studio or games room amongst other possible uses. If any prospective buyer wished, this could be the perfect place to convert into an annexe (stp).
From the driveway, there is a further gate, leading to the concrete yard and access to the stable and hay shed. The 1.4 acre garden (stm) has been split into lots of different areas, there is the orchard with apples, pears, plums and cherry trees and the paddocks are split into three! The ornamental garden has a BBQ area, seating area with wood burner and this offers the perfect spot to entertain guests on a sunny summers evening! The gardens provide a wonderful setting for the house, the formal gardens to the front include lawns and wildflowers.
