About this property

  • Situated in a delightful semi-rural setting with views over the surrounding countryside towards the Lincoln Ridge is this modern detached home, built in 2004 from reclaimed bricks with striking contemporary looks and a host of useful features. The property forms part of a small, exclusive development of four similar individually designed homes and a barn conversion just moments from village amenities, yet with access to open countryside on the doorstep. The accommodation is expansive throughout offering almost 3000 sq ft of space in the main property with additional space in a first-floor office situated over the detached garage, which has good potential for conversion (stnc). The house is very well presented with modern bathrooms and attractive timber detailing throughout, including a striking staircase and wood-framed windows. There is off-street parking, a double garage and generous gardens to the rear.

    The ground floor accommodation is accessed from an entrance hall and leads to a private study and cloakroom with WC.; the main open plan living space with a kitchen to one side and a sitting room to the other; a timber-framed fully-glazed conservatory; and a utility room. Upstairs on the first floor there is a principal bedroom with dressing room and en suite shower room, two further large double bedrooms and a family bath/shower room, with an additional two bedrooms and a cloakroom/WC. on the second floor. Outside the property has double garage with an office/study/games room on the first floor with a cloakroom/WC. that is an ideal home office separate to the main house.

    The house is set back from the road in a spacious corner plot at the rear of the development, with views over open grassland to the rear. To the front there are two parking spaces in front of the double garage, while to the rear there is a lawned garden which wraps around the back of the house. It is enclosed by wooden panel fencing and has an attractive weeping willow.

This is a substantial family house, arranged over three floors, I especially like the detached double garage with the games room/ home office above
