    • A fabulous family house offering over 2,630 sqft of living space and situated on the edge of the sought after 'Avenues'. The bright and spacious accommodation is set over two floors and includes four lovely reception rooms, superb Orangery and a large kitchen/breakfast room which very much represents the family 'hub' of the house. The kitchen area is well fitted with units and features both Granite and Corian work tops. Amtico flooring complements the units and oak flooring runs through to the Orangery and from here, views over the gardens can be enjoyed. The sitting room is a most comfortable room and runs the full width of the house with French doors leading out to the garden. The room also features an open fireplace with an attractive stone surround.

      On the first floor, six bedrooms can be found with the principal bedroom boasting a spacious bath and shower room and dressing area. Another bedroom features an en suite and bedroom six currently is used as a second study/home office.

      The house is approached over a block paved carriage driveway which provides parking for numerous cars and leads to the garage.

      The rear garden is just delightful and has been carefully landscaped over the years to provide great privacy and seclusion on all sides. There is a large paved terrace that extends across the back of the house and lawned gardens extend away to the end where a small vegetable garden can be found. The gardens are flanked by a variety of mature shrubs and hedgerows, and features an established and productive apple tree. Situated in the far corner of the garden is a lovely peaceful and relaxing seating area, which could, if required, be the perfect spot for a children's trampoline.
