Situated on a generous plot, the property also offers enormous potential to further enlarge and improve subject to planning consent.

    Arranged around a welcoming central entrance hall with ground floor cloakroom, the living accommodation enjoys a relaxed flow with a generous formal double aspect living room/music room featuring double doors opening out on to the rear garden. Either side of the living room there is a pleasant double aspect study and a snug which may be used as a formal dining room. Adjacent to the snug is a good size kitchen/breakfast room, ideal for informal family entertaining. The kitchen itself has been comprehensively fitted with a full range of solid Oak cabinets and granite worktops, incorporating a butler style double sink and fitted range style freestanding cooker. Accessed from the kitchen is a good size utility room with separate sink, leading to a second vaulted and double aspect study/home office.

    Upstairs, the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom enjoys views both to the front of the property and over the rear gardens. There are also two further double bedrooms served by a well-appointed family bathroom.

    A real feature of the property is its impressive plot approaching 0.25 acre, comprising well established gardens which are mainly laid to lawn and interspersed with well stocked beds of specimen plants and mature borders, which includes an established kitchen and herb garden, where rosemary, oregano, lovage, mint and sage can be gathered. On the southern side of the house there are established grapevines, which the current owners use for making jams and wrapped vine leaves. To the rear of the property and overlooking the garden is a lovely secluded patio which is ideal for al-fresco entertaining. A high boundary of mature trees and hedging provides both seclusion and privacy. To the front of the house there is ample parking and a further area of lawn.
