The Accommodation

Stone steps and a separate ramp lead up to a glazed UPVC door with glazed side panels, which opens into a vestibule.  Double, glazed doors from the vestibule then lead into the bright and welcoming reception hall, which enjoys a double height ceiling with skylights, a wood effect laminate floor and carpeted stairs to the first floor with galleried landing above.  There is an understair cupboard.  

The large open plan kitchen/dining/living room is the heart of the home, and an extremely impressive space.  The sitting area boasts a triple aspect with patio doors leading out to the garden.  There is an attractive timber effect laminate floor to the entire open plan space.  The kitchen and dining area is well proportioned, with a further set of patio doors leading out to the garden.  The kitchen comprises an excellent range of fitted cabinetry with complementary worksurfaces, while the central island has a solid oak worksurface and breakfast bar.  Integrated appliances include two ovens, a grill, electric hob, dishwasher and wine fridge.  Adjacent to the kitchen is a useful utility room, with newly fitted vinyl floor and window to the rear, storage units, a sink and plumbing for white goods.  A door leads through to the integral garage.

Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom with large window to the front elevation, and an adjacent shower/wet room, which comprises of shower, WC, wash hand basin set in vanity unit and heated towel rail. This room is fully tiled.

Carpeted stairs lead up to a large, bright landing, which has space for a generous seating or study area, and a deep storage/linen cupboard.  The principal bedroom enjoys windows to front and rear, views of the garden and beyond, a deep storage cupboard (also housing the hot water tank) and a contemporary en-suite bathroom, which comprises a compact tub with rainhead shower over, wash hand basin set within a vanity unit, WC and heated towel rail. The bathroom is part tiled and has access to eaves storage.  At the opposite end of the landing is a further double bedroom, again with windows to front and rear and which enjoys views over the garden.  There is a further small room on the first floor, presently used as a dressing room, but which could make an ideal nursery or office space.  The main bathroom comprises a bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin set within a vanity unit.  There is a heated towel rail and access to eaves storage.

Overall, the property is in immaculate condition and must be viewed to be appreciated.  It should also be noted that the eco credentials are excellent.  The property is highly insulated and solar panels generate electricity and income. The solar panels were fitted in 2013 and have a 20 year eligibility period, averaging approximately £500 per annum income to the owner. There is a separate solar water heating system (boosted by the boiler).


The property is approached via a generous monobloc driveway, which provides parking for at least 6-7 vehicles.  The integral garage has power, light, a pedestrian door to the side and roller door.

The rear garden is fully enclosed, an excellent size and enjoys the sun for much of the day.  There is a generous patio for entertaining, while the remainder of the garden has been beautifully landscaped and is predominantly laid to lawn, with gravelled areas, rockeries, flowering borders and vegetable beds.  There is a greenhouse, two timber sheds and purpose built kennels.
