The ground floor accommodation comprises three reception rooms, including an impressive sitting room with a cast iron fireplace and recessed glazed French doors leading to the rear garden. There is a spacious reception hall with an elegant stained glass door and built-in storage, finished with original wood flooring which continues through to a bay-fronted dining room, also with a feature fireplace, contrasted by attractive tiled inserts. The kitchen/breakfast room is very bright, benefits from a triple aspect and there is also a large pantry. The kitchen itself has been fitted with a range of base and eye-level units. There is a separate utility room with additional units and space/plumbing for appliances. Finally, there is a cloakroom W.C. and a personal door leading to a large garage which has power, lighting and eaves storage.
Upstairs the bedrooms are split over two floors, the first housing beds 1,2 and 3 coupled with a large family bathroom which has been fitted with a white 4-piece suite. The master bedroom is particularly spacious, has a wash hand basin and a useful interconnecting study area. On the second floor are the remaining three double bedrooms and a refitted shower room, as well as a spacious landing with built-in cupboards.
Outside the front of the property is set back from Hills Road and screened by a variety of trees and mature hedging. There is a shingled driveway providing ample parking and access to a large garage with an electric roller door. A noteworthy feature is the impressive west-facing rear garden which extends to 150ft and offers a superb degree of privacy.
