Property Description

PROPERTY Set within the heart of the village, this detached cottage-style home has been thoughtfully improved by the current owners.

The Old Spinney was designed and built by the previous owners to a high specification, of standard brick and block construction with external rendering. Thereafter, the new owners have made various improvements to better suit their family. The property benefits from many features including engineered oak floors, and an insulated garden room. The spacious family sized accommodation on the ground floor comprises a good sized entrance hall, sitting room with fitted 'log effect' electric fire and double doors opening into the garden room of brick, wood and glazed construction, providing an excellent view of the rear garden. There is a study adjacent to the garden room, the kitchen/dining room has now been opened into one large room. The ground floor also consists of a utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor the landing area has a door leading to the master bedroom with door through to a dressing area which has a range of triple built-in wardrobes and door to spacious newly-fitted en-suite bathroom comprising low level WC, semi-recessed hand basin set in fitted units, fully-tiled double shower cubicle and panelled bath. At the end of the dressing area is a door to bedroom 4. There are two further double bedrooms and family shower room with recently installed three-piece suite comprising low level WC, semi-recessed hand basin set in fitted units and shower cubicle. From the landing there is also access to a large fully-boarded loft offering significant storage space. In our opinion internal viewing is strongly recommended.

OUTSIDE The Old Spinney is set back from the village high street, behind low hedging with a driveway providing parking for two vehicles and in turn leading to the single garage with up and over door, power and lighting. The front garden is accessed via a wrought iron gate, is mainly lawned with a variety of flower and shrub borders and gated to the rear on both sides. There is an area of decking to the right hand side of the garden room and also a useful terraced area outside the back door, giving access to the sizeable three-sectioned timber outbuilding comprising of a workshop, office and studio room with power/lighting throughout. The studio room itself measures 8'x8' with double doors opening to the garden. The remainder of the garden offers a high degree of privacy and seclusion with a large stocked pond and a variety of flower and shrub borders.
