Set in an exclusive enclave of executive homes with wonderful views over adjoining countryside.
Forming part of a select group of just 6 homes in this prestigious close, this particular home occupies a prime corner plot with the most delightful views over the adjoining meadows to the village church nestling in the valley.
Originally built in 1995, the house has been well cared for by the current owners and is set within beautifully planted and neatly landscaped grounds that are fully enclosed to the rear and perfectly safe for those with young children or pets. Set to the front of the property is driveway parking for two vehicles in addition to the detached double garage. A few steps lead down from the driveway to the front entrance which is set beside a lovely sheltered raised terrace, perfectly placed for capturing the morning sun and evening sunsets. A welcoming hallway with staircase to the first floor has a downstairs cloakroom and useful under stairs storage cupboard. A pair of glazed doors lead to the bright, dual aspect sitting room which commands a fine outlook across open countryside to the distant hills. A living flame gas fire is set within a decorative marble surround and hearth and further glazed doors lead to a generously proportioned garden room with limestone tiled floor. This room is a perfect vantage point to overlook the gardens and picturesque village views beyond. Patio doors open directly to a further terrace that runs along the full width of the property which can also be accessed from the side of the house. There is a separate dining room large enough for family gatherings and in addition there is a most useful ground floor study which could be used as a more intimate snug if so desired. The kitchen is a particularly bright room with space for a breakfast table and is well appointed with an extensive run of wall and base units, a Neff ceramic hob and twin stainless steel built in ovens. The utility room houses a floor mounted central heating boiler with plenty of space for washing and drying appliances, a secondary sink and further storage units. Stable doors open to the side garden with a flight of stone steps to the rear of the garage. Five bedrooms lead off the first floor landing, the master with built in wardrobes and a dedicated en suite with shower and a separate corner bath. This bedroom in particular enjoys the most wonderful outlook with the spire of the pretty church of St Mary's perfectly framed in the centre of the view. The remaining bedrooms also have built in wardrobes and there is a large airing cupboard with a dual fuel towel rail. The family bathroom is smartly presented with a thermostatic over bath shower.
The gardens that surround the property on two sides are a noteworthy feature of the house and have been carefully landscaped to make the very most of the orientation and views. Set above the eastern side of the home is an attractive raised rockery above which the owners have built a decking area with timber pagoda. A further hidden decked storage area has a shed and the modern oil tank that fuels the central heating for the home. There are so many places in which to barbeque or enjoy a glass of wine and the seating areas have been strategically placed to make the most of the morning, afternoon and evening sunshine. The sunsets from the front terrace can be exceptional. The lawned area to the rear is gently sloping and interspersed with flowering cherries, Choisya, Mahonia and Weigela. A stone wall on the rear boundary sits above the rural meadows that adjoin the property and has been built at a sensible height in order to maximise the stunning views.
