About this property

  • Byways is thought to date from the 1950s and is built of Cotswold stone under a pitched stone tiled roof. The property, which was originally a bungalow, was extensively refurbished and enlarged in 2011/2012 to create a two storey property.

    The layout of rooms offers beautifully presented family accommodation and scope exists to further enlarge the property if required.

    In brief the accommodation comprises an attractive entrance hall which leads to a well-proportioned sitting room with double doors providing access to a terrace. Double doors lead into the dining room which can also be accessed from the kitchen. The kitchen is beautifully fitted with a range of contemporary cabinets and an island unit. Of particular note is the generous projecting bay window which affords views to the front. A good utility room lies adjacent to the kitchen with a door to the garden. Also on the ground floor is the family room which has an en suite shower room and can therefore be used as a bedroom. Finally there is a small study and a guest cloakroom.

    Set out over the first floor are two excellent bedroom suites, both with fitted wardrobes and south-facing views over the garden. There is a further double bedroom.

    Outside the property is approached via a gravelled driveway with access to a detached double garage with workshop. To the front of the property is an established landscaped garden set behind a dwarf wall and ample parking for up to four cars. The rear garden enjoys a south facing aspect and is mainly laid to lawn with established borders.

I love the flow and flexibility of the layout. There is also scope to extend if required. An all round excellent house.
