Property Description

This extended 1950’s detached house is nicely positioned on the edge of the village enjoying far reaching views to open countryside and is only a short walk to the High Street and schools.

In a little more detail, the accommodation comprises an enclosed entrance porch, a light and spacious reception hall, formal dining room with window overlooking the front aspect, fireplace and double doors which open into the 26ft long kitchen/breakfast room. The well-equipped kitchen provides an extensive range of low-level units and drawers, matching wall-mounted cabinets, working surfaces, attractive tiled splashbacks, tiled flooring, a range oven and space and plumbing for freestanding appliances. There is access to a rear lobby area and WC. The sitting room has an open fireplace with exposed brick effect surround and marble hearth, coving to ceiling and sliding glazed doors which provide access to the terrace area and garden beyond. The full-depth family room offers versatile space which could be remodelled to add further space to the sitting room. Upstairs, the landing area provides built-in storage and leads to the refitted bathroom, separate WC and four bedrooms. The principal bedroom enjoys dual aspects and views of the garden and has a large en suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle. The large rear garden is fully enclosed and has an east-facing aspect. The garden is predominately laid to lawn with various mature trees and a generous paved terrace area. Gated side access leads to the parking area and garage.
