About this property

  • 8 New Heritage Way is an attractive double fronted modern house, built in 2008. Our clients have owned the property since new and have maintained the house beautifully; it is presented in excellent order with points of note including a re-fitted kitchen, landscaped garden, modern bathroom suites, oak internal doors and stylish décor throughout.

    The interior has a pleasing layout which is well-suited to family life, extending to just over 1,400 square feet. The front door opens to a welcoming entrance hall with wooden floor, off which lies all of the ground floor accommodation. Reception rooms include an elegantly presented formal dining room, a study (which would also make an ideal playroom or snug), and a dual-aspect sitting room which has French doors opening to the terrace and features a contemporary woodburning stove set on a slate hearth.

    The kitchen and breakfast room is fitted with a range of gloss black and wooden-fronted units, with black granite worktops, a central island with space for bar stools, a five-burner gas hob and a range of integrated Bosch appliances; French doors open to the garden. Adjoining the kitchen is a utility room with sink and space for laundry appliances.

    There are four bedrooms on the first floor, lying off a central galleried landing. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room; the remaining three double bedrooms (one of which has a fitted wardrobe) are served by a family bathroom with suite including a bath and separate shower cubicle.

    8 New Heritage Way overlooks a green; there is access to the house on foot via a pathway from the road. To the front of the house is a low hedge and lawned front garden, a pathway continues around to the side of the house where there is gated access to the garden and a courtesy door opening to the detached double garage.

    The attractive rear garden is enclosed by fencing and trees, and has been landscaped to offer various options for outdoor dining and entertaining, including a paved terrace and seating area spanning the rear of the house, a lawn bordered by flower and shrub beds, and a further decked terrace with power points.

    Steps descend to a gate opening to the parking area and detached double garage which is accessed via an access road to the west of the house. The garage has full power, and is fitted with automatic up and over doors.

It's rare to find a well-managed development in the heart of the countryside offering modern living whilst having direct access to footpaths, woodlands and heathland. A dog-walker and family paradise.
