Set across two floors and comprising a spacious, open plan design that should prove popular with modern buyers’ tastes, the home in brief comprises; a beautiful open entrance hallway which flows through into the superb L-shaped kitchen diner / living area. This family-friendly space is ideal for entertaining / families alike & has French doors that open out onto the garden. The kitchen is only 12 months old and is finished with quality granite tops, Travertine tiled floor (which runs through much of the ground floor) & a range of integrated appliances, plus a useful utility room / wc just off the kitchen. Underfloor heating runs throughout the entire house, both upstairs and downstairs. There is a beautiful main lounge with feature exposed brick chimney and log burner, plus a stunning sun room with vaulted ceiling and glass apex that overlooks the garden. Upstairs, there are three spacious bedrooms with the particularly impressive master bed being large enough to remodel into two bedrooms, should clients wish.

The home rests right in the middle of the plot itself, with gardens on all sides.
