About this property

  • Detached modern house of stone construction under a tiled roof.

    The house has recently been substantially extended and modernised throughout to do full justice to its lovely position on the edge of the village.

    Improvements to note are the creation of a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with picture windows opening to the south and on to the decked entertaining area; quality white bath and shower fittings; porcelain tiling; laminate wooden flooring; stone flooring; double and triple glazing throughout; underfloor heating predominately throughout stone & wooden flooring; door furniture; radiators and upgrading of wiring and plumbing.

    There is scope to replace the triple garage block with a modern replacement and at the same time install a PV system on the roof as a supplementary electrical supply with car charging point.

    The kitchen/breakfast room is the hub of the house with breakfast bar, space for a dining table and sofas, fitted base and eye level units. Beyond is the gym/games room currently used for yoga, but could easily be used as a playroom, study or snug. Across the hallway is a useful pantry, walking cloaks cupboard, utility room and rear door and lobby for wet dogs.

    Versatile accommodation provided by bedroom suite five on the ground floor, ideal for a dependent relative.

    The principal bedroom suite has a dressing room and fully glazed southern wall giving you views and natural light pervades throughout.

    A second floor office/break out room is a great retreat with fabulous views, ideal for working from home or a teenagers den.

    Natural light is in abundance in this lovely house, with so many of the rooms taking advantage of the southerly aspect and lovely views.

    A decked area lies to the south, ideal for summer entertaining.

    Extensive lawned gardens lie to the south. Ornamental pond. Hedge boundaries.

    Beyond there is an orchard area, footings for a stable and stores and gate to a small by-the-stream area, perfect for idle days getting away from it all.

    In all about 1.08 acres.

The first time I set eyes on this house I was so taken by the views. There is no doubt that the house really compliments the setting.
