More Details

The entrance reveals a central reception hall filled with natural light and with solid oak flooring extending into the kitchen and dining area. The stylish handmade kitchen with an exposed brick wall and west facing window was fitted in 2021; it has integrated appliances, a Smeg Dual Fuel Range Cooker, wine cooler and a Quooker tap. Alongside is a double height open plan dining room orientated to the south with floor to ceiling windows, two large Velux windows and access to the outdoor entertaining space. The separate drawing room is accessed by glazed double doors; it has a fireplace housing a log burning stove and opens to the west facing garden. The beautifully proportioned sitting room provides the option of a fourth bedroom suite having a shower room alongside with an eye-catching curved wall in rustic brick. Off the hall is a useful utility/laundry room and a cloakroom wc.

All three first floor double bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and glorious vaulted ceilings. The principal bedroom faces west across the front garden; it has floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes along the length of one wall, a full-size apex window of solid green oak opening on to a Juliet balcony, and a large en suite bathroom with underfloor heating fitted in 2021.


Electric timber gates with intercom open onto a long gravelled drive framed by lawns and enclosed by a mature mixed hedge. The front garden is some some fifteen metres in length with a well established oak tree and two ash trees. The drive leads up to the house and follows the northern boundary to the double garage at the rear with a turning and parking area. In addition to the lawned front garden there is a southerly facing terrace of indian stone flags with exterior lighting; it totals some 25 sq metres and is accessed from the rear of the property from the dining room.


The bespoke cedar clad building to the rear of the main house reveals a double garage with electric doors and internal staircase leading up to the dedicated home office which could alternatively be used for a games room/private annex.
