A wood front door with inset glass panels, which has a circular window to one side, leads into the impressive entrance hall with a stunning wood parquet floor, wide wood balustrade and carpeted stairs leading to the first floor, and there is access to the reception rooms and kitchen through unique wood doors inset with an oval lozenge-shaped glass panel.

At the front of the property is the living room which is double aspect with two large bay windows that allow the light to flood the room, and the light grey wood effect floor reflects the brightness of the room extremely well. Further down the hall is access to the snug and overlooking the garden at the rear of the property is the warm and inviting sitting room, both of which have the light grey wood effect flooring.

In the sitting room, a bay window looks out over the side passageway and together with double glazed doors onto the terrace, allows plenty of light into the room. The light grey wood effect floor continues in this room and there is an charming fireplace with cast iron coal effect fire, stone surround and mantel, and tiled hearth.

From the entrance hall is access to the part tiled ground floor shower room which has a white suite with WC, wash hand basin set into a vanity unit, a shower cubicle with curved sliding glass doors and tiled floor.

To the rear of the property is the fabulous kitchen/breakfast room with a range of wood fronted wall and base units, extensive work surfaces with wonderful coloured tiling behind, built-in oven with gas hob and extractor hood above, a single drainer stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap, space for washing machine and fridge/freezer, tiled floor and double glazed doors to the garden.

The wood balustrade and carpeted wide staircase leads to the first floor galleried landing, where the light grey wood effect flooring continues, and there is access to the loft. All the bedrooms, which are well-proportioned, and the family bathroom lead off the landing. The principal bedroom has a built-in wardrobe with inset dressing table and mirror and overlooks the garden.

The large rear garden is partly laid to lawn with a paved pathway that leads to the pitched roof double garage with up-and-over metal door. Immediately outside the back of the property is a paved area that is covered, ideal for sitting out in less favourable weather conditions, which lead to the extensive raised crazy paved terrace that has a wooden storage shed on one side and a large vegetable plot on the other. Beyond the terrace is the lawn and a bit further are two raised beds on either side of the central pathway. The garden provides plenty of privacy and seclusion with a variety of established shrubs and trees.
