About this property

  • The house is one of only a handful of detached houses set within a spacious cul-de-sac.

    The hallway is finished with a wood floor and provides access to the reception rooms and a ground floor cloakroom. At the front of the house is a home office and a separate dining room. The dining room adjoins the kitchen at the rear and provides the potential to amalgamate both rooms to create a large open-plan, kitchen/family room. The kitchen is fitted with Shaker-style units, with integrated appliances and finished with a Karndean floor. Adjoining is a utility room. On the opposite side of the house, overlooking the garden, is a sitting room with double doors into a conservatory.

    On the first floor are four bedrooms. The principal bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. The remaining bedrooms are served by a spacious family bathroom, with shower.

    Outside, the house is set deep in its plot, providing a large drive and front garden. There is an attached double garage with electric up-and-over-door. The gardens wrap around the rear of the house, with two terraces ideal for al fresco dining. The remainder is laid to lawn, including two mature apple trees, two sheds and a timber deck.
