About this property

  • Dawn Chorus was built in 1968 as a chalet style two storey house set in the corner of this wonderful plot.

    The porched main entrance is on the south elevation and enters the centre of the home. Off the tiled hallway to the right is the family sitting room with a large fireplace and a grand gas burning stove and generous cushioned window seat set in the front bay window. The study/ snug is a perfect place to spend your day with a view to the property's orchard. Bedroom 3, a large double bedroom is to the rear providing views to the side garden and apple trees while a generous family bathroom is convenient located.

    The modern well appointed kitchen/dining room runs the full length of the house and benefits from a triple aspect. The dining area has a large south/west facing window while the kitchen is anchored by a large stone topped island with an integrated gas hob stove and glass overhead extraction. The kitchen benefits from another large bay window facing west.

    The spacious central landing leads directly to the master bedroom suite, to the front of the house with views of the gardens. The large double aspect bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room. Two further double bedrooms enjoy a double aspect and share a large family bath/shower room.

    Crossing the gravel drive from the main house is a perfectly private garden with a tall mature laurel hedge. The garden is laid to lawn and surrounded by an elevated plain on two sides with beautiful mature trees on all sides. The garden lends itself to a pool or tennis court.

    A large outbuilding in the same style as the main house encompasses a two car garage and three large store/work rooms while there is ample parking for multiple cars.

    Planning consent to demolish the current outbuilding/garage and extend the property. Ref. No: 04/42110/FULL & Ref. No: 04/41928/FULL
