Full Details

Immaculately presented throughout, the owners have improved the property significantly with dark wood floors and coved ceilings, superb kitchens and bathrooms, with double glazing throughout, ample off-road parking and a beautifully maintained rear garden.

Two vehicular entrances lead onto the expansive tarmac drive, providing plenty of parking and access to the garage. The part glazed front door takes you into an entrance porch and a further door into the welcoming entrance hall. Stairs to the first floor are directly in front of you and adjacent is an L-shaped pantry, making great use of this space.

The fabulous dual aspect family/dining room is to the right of the entrance hall and features an attractive stone fireplace surround and mantel with built-in electric fire and marble hearth. At one end are double glazed doors that lead into beautiful rear garden and allow the light to flood into the room. The delightful, warm living room overlooks the front of the property and through double doors, which incorporate frosted glazed panels, is the absolutely stunning fully fitted kitchen.

The kitchen, which is extremely inviting heart of the home, has an extensive range of wall and base units with marble work surfaces and part tiled walls behind, a built-in oven and microwave, space for an American style fridge/freezer, gas hob with cooker hood above, single drainer sink unit with mixer tap and integrated appliances. From the kitchen, there is an inner hallway which leads to further ground floor accommodation and the garage.

From the inner hallway, there is a bright and spacious sitting room and on the other side is a ground floor bedroom that has built-in wardrobes with double doors and pleasing views over the garden. The impressive ground floor shower room is fully tiled with a wash hand basin with glass-fronted cupboard above, a WC, a double sized walk-in shower with glass screen and a skylight allows plenty of natural light to shine through.

A pleasant second kitchen has a range of wall and base units with marble effect work surfaces and attractive part tiled walls, a built-in oven with gas hob and cooker hood above, space for a fridge/freezer, washing machine and dryer, and access to a really handy large walk-in storage cupboard. The owners have created a wonderfully light room by adding a skylight. There is also access to the rear garden and to the garage/storage room, which has a tiled floor and fitted shelves on both walls.

The painted wood balustrade stairs lead up to a large galleried landing and access to four good sized bedrooms. The main bedroom has an en suite shower room with WC and wash hand basin whilst two of the bedrooms have plenty of wardrobe space. The pleasing family bathroom has a panelled bath, wash hand basin, WC and a corner shower unit with glass door.

Outside, the property is set back from the road which allows for off-road parking. To the rear there is a superb garden that is surrounded by wood fence panels offering privacy and seclusion.
