The ground floor rooms flow well providing ideal entertaining space. The property enjoys a generous plot with well tended gardens. About 0.58 acres in all.

    On the ground floor, the conservatory provides lovely garden views and leads into the reception hall, with a cloakroom and stairs to the first floor. The sitting room, with attractive oak flooring, is spacious with front and rear aspects and a rustic stone fireplace with a wood burner. The kitchen/breakfast room is the hub of the house, ideal for family life with a seating area and French doors on to the wonderful outside decking area. The kitchen is well equipped with a comprehensive range of units, complemented by granite worktops. The large island provides further storage and a generous breakfast bar area for informal dining. Appliances include a double oven with warming drawer, induction hob with extractor over, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. A large, thermally efficient ceiling lantern floods the space with natural light. Just off the kitchen is a good sized utility room, with plenty of storage units, space for appliances and door access to outside. Accessed from the kitchen is a dining room to the rear, with oak wood flooring flowing into the drawing room, overlooking the frontage and featuring a decorative fireplace with an open fire.

    On the first floor the principal bedroom lies to the front, with a good range of fitted wardrobes and a Juliette balcony, together with an en suite shower room. There are five further bedrooms on this floor, served by a well-equipped family bathroom, with both a freestanding bath with overhead shower and a separate shower cubicle.

    Outside
    The property is approached though electric gates leading to a sweeping gravelled driveway giving parking and access to two double garages. The large garage could easily be used as a workshop and possibly have annexe potential subject to the usual planning consents. The majority of the gardens lie to the front of the house with a generous area of lawn, with vegetable planters and beautifully maintained beds and borders giving all year interest. The garden features a wildlife pond and a wildlife path, a formal pond and a large pergola clad with a productive grapevine. To the front of the property is a terrace area ideal for relaxing and enjoying the garden. The gardens are enclosed by mature trees and hedging providing screening and privacy. There are two sheds and a greenhouse, together with a large covered area ideal for outside storage, attached to the garage. To the rear of the house is a wonderful raised decked area, together with a vine clad pergola, affording an excellent space for outside entertaining. The decking incorporates an easily maintained Hydropool swim spa, which is heated and can be used all year round, and benefits from a sliding insulated cover when not in use. In addition there is a hot tub and outdoor shower.
