The property occupies a tranquil cul-de-sac position located right in the heart of the village with all amenities close by. Over the years the current owner has transformed the house with a programme of expansion and full refurbishment, resulting in spacious, versatile and beautifully presented accommodation. The accommodation in detail comprises: the entrance hall with beautiful wood parquet flooring, stairs to first floor and a cloakroom WC. The lovely solid wood flooring continues into the sitting room. The garden/dining room beyond has herringbone Karndean flooring and boasts a vaulted ceiling incorporating sky lights and bi-fold doors to the garden.
The kitchen/breakfast room has been refitted with contemporary and attractive cabinetry, a travertine floor, Corian working surfaces with one and a half sink unit, mixer tap and bevelled drainer, and a breakfast bar. There is a range of integrated appliances including a Siemens 4-ring induction hob with extractor over, an oven and plate warming drawer, and Bosch integrated fridge and dishwasher. Adjacent is a smart utility room with doors to the front and rear of the house, giving access to the ground floor bedroom with an en suite shower room as well as an outside part-covered verandah.
Upstairs there are three further double bedrooms and a luxury fitted family bathroom with bath and walk-in shower, under-floor heating and attractive slate floor and wall tiles.
Outside the front drive enables parking for three cars, the rear garden measures over 200 feet in length and is laid mainly to lawn with well stocked flower and borders and a selection of fruit bearing trees.
