This most attractive 1930s detached house enjoys a pleasant position, set back from the road and just a short walk from the thriving village centre and mainline train station. The current owner has transformed the property in recent times with a program of expansion and full refurbishment, creating a wonderful family home with the added benefit of a self-contained annexe in the garden, which offers great flexibility and is ideal for visiting relatives or young people returning from university. The accommodation comprises a welcoming reception hall with stairs to first floor, storage cupboard under which houses a wall mounted gas fired central heating boiler, and engineered flooring. The bay windowed sitting room boasts an open fireplace in which a wood burning stove could be fitted (subject to certification) and makes a cosy winter room. The open plan kitchen/dining/family room is a wonderful space with a glazed rear elevation with bi-fold doors, combined with the vaulted ceiling incorporating four large skylights ensures this space is filled with natural light, giving it a fabulous bright and airy ambience. The kitchen area is fitted with contemporary cabinetry with matching central island with quartz working surfaces, with inset one and a half sink unit with mixer tap and bevelled drainer. There are a range of quality integrated appliances including a four-ring induction hob, double oven, extractor, dishwasher and space for an American style fridge/freezer. The dining/family area boasts a free-standing wood burning stove with oak flooring, and just off is a handy utility room and a shower room. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes and including the large bay windowed master suite and a luxury family bathroom with a contemporary free-standing bathtub.
