An attractive edge of village house with generous parking, double garage and elegant accommodation with a great flow and connectivity to its gardens, which border woodland.
This attractive detached stone house, which offers a grand first impression set back behind gate piers with a generous turning sweep, was constructed in the early 2000s, but has an older, characterful appearance.
The striking exterior is complimented by an elegant, modern and contemporary interior with a great flow for family life and for entertaining, as well as connectivity between the principal ground floor rooms and the gardens.
The well-designed accommodation layout is arranged over two floors, extending to around 1800 sq ft, with a sense of space and natural light. The rooms are well proportioned and well-lit, with the large windows framing attractive views over the gardens to woodland, and the village to fields.
A sheltered porch opens into a welcoming entrance hallway, which serves the triple-aspect sitting room, with two sets of French doors to the garden and Stamford stone fireplace, and is open to the dining room and family kitchen, which also have French doors to the garden.
The kitchen is a fabulous and convivial room, fitted with a modern suite with ample storage and central island, with breakfast bar. The suite incorporates an induction hob, double oven, dishwasher and boiling tap, amongst other appliances. It is a great kitchen which opens to a versatile family area, ideal for informal dining, seating or, as used, children's play area, with the two set of doors to the garden. An adjoining utility and a WC, off the hall, completes the ground floor.
The four first floor bedrooms are well proportioned. Bedroom one has a modern en suite shower room, whilst bedrooms two, three and four, which is currently furnished as an office, are served by a full-suite family bathroom, with a separate shower.
The house is approached over the generous gravel and block-paved driveway, on which there is parking for a large number of cars and access to a detached double garage. The principal gardens are westerly facing and lawned, with a stone terrace adjoining the house and paved pathways leading past mature shrubs and well stocked borders to further raised timber veranda, which are ideal for tracking the sun and entertaining, with a large timber summer house. The garden borders coppiced willow woodland, which offers a lovely backdrop.
