At the heart of the house is the family/dining room open plan to the kitchen.

A useful utility room lies alongside. The 23ft sitting room spans the width of the house and has a wood burning stove and French doors opening onto the garden terrace. We have been advised that there is fast broadband to the property with boosters, and the allocated home office has fitted furniture and French doors opening onto the garden.
On the first floor, the principal bedroom suite is double aspect, has a dressing room and shower room; the three additional first floor bedrooms are all double, well-proportioned, have good ceiling heights, enjoy fine views and are served by the large house bathroom. The second floor is ideal for teenage children with versatile living and bedroom space served by a bespoke bathroom with a walk-in shower designed with its own private view across open countryside.
High timber gates open to the gravelled drive giving access to the double garage with electric doors, providing ample parking for four cars. The detached garage block with two bays and electric doors has a dropdown ladder that ascends to the loft room with power and light. The gardens wrap around the garden, are private and sheltered, and beautifully designed providing options to enjoy day-long sunshine. There are sweeping lawns, flagstone terraces, abundantly planted herbaceous borders, clipped yew hedging and paths lined with laurel with lavender, mellow brick walls with climbing roses and espalier fruit trees, and multiple varieties of trees framing the lawns, some underplanted with spring bulbs. The whole is part walled and bounded by high, mature mixed hedging.
