Occupying a prominent corner plot in the heart of the village this chocolate box character home is brimming with instant kerb appeal that belies the spacious and contemporary interior inside.

Originally an old-fashioned bungalow this amazing conversion was finished in 2016 and the property has been virtually rebuilt from the ground-up making it essentially more like a new build home. Stunningly presented throughout the stylish country cottage style accommodation will undoubtably appeal to a wide range of buyers who are looking for something disparate that perfectly blends a classical, traditional interior design with a contemporary open plan layout.

Boasting gardens on all four sides with a charming lawned and picket fence frontage there is plenty of outside space with an electronic gated entrance off Ashtrees leading onto an enclosed and secure driveway that leads to a newly built detached garage. The principle garden is located on the other side of the property which can be accessed off the main lounge and dining kitchen with a landscaped patio area comprising Indian stone and raised decking providing outside living and dining space with a lawn and raised borders. The gardens benefit from not being directly overlooked and enjoys sunny aspects.

An oak framed storm canopy and solid oak door opens into an impressive reception hallway situated to the front of the property. Tiled flooring leads through to two rooms either side comprising of a family room/king sized bedroom and a spacious through lounge with feature fireplace and inset wood burner that enjoys aspects over the main garden with French doors outside directly onto the patio. The tiling from the hallway continues into the large open plan kitchen diner located to the rear which is fitted with an extensive range of quality wall and base units incorporating built in appliances including a range cooker plus a breakfast bar with solid wood worktop. An oak turning staircase takes you upstairs where a vaulted landing ceiling leads to the main bathroom fitted with a four piece suite comprising a bath and separate shower, plus three spacious and beautifully presented bedrooms with two featuring their own ensuite shower rooms for added convenience.

Other benefits of this wonderful home include gas central heating and full double glazing.
