About this property

  • Orchard Lea, 7 Church Close is a striking detached family home dating from the 1970's set within a generous landscaped garden. On the market for the first time in almost 20 years, the property has been significantly extended and improved to provide contemporary accommodation within an enviable plot. The proximity to transport links and amenities heightens its appeal.

Both the hall and the dining room lead into the kitchen / breakfast room with fitted wall and base units. A versatile study / music room leads from the hall into an impressive family room with double doors into the garden. There is also a utility room with a door into the garden and a WC.

    The first floor provides a light and spacious, dual aspect principal bedroom with a large en suite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe. There are three further bedrooms, two with in-built storage, and a family bathroom.

    Electric gates open onto a private gravel driveway lead to a generous parking area for several cars. The property also benefits from an integrated garage with electric door, workshop area at the rear and door into the rear garden.

    The spacious garden wraps around the house and includes a terrace, generous lawn and well stocked herbaceous borders. There is also a pond with landscaped terrace creating a wonderful spot to unwind and entertain.

I love the space that Orchard Lea offers, both with the generous landscaped garden and in the house itself. The house has a lovely contemporary feel.
