Impressive family home with versatile living space and wonderful garden.
This attractive home is perfect for a family seeking easy access to local schools, parks and the town centre, and space to grow. Built in the 1930's, it has been extended and re-modelled to offer contemporary styling with opportunities for further expansion (STPP) on this large plot. The design provides versatile open plan living alongside separate areas for home working and relaxation.
To the front of the property, the generous paved driveway allows parking for several cars with mature planting providing privacy from the road.
On the ground floor there is rustic edge-to-edge engineered oak wood flooring throughout. Double doors open to the fabulous kitchen/breakfast/family room, the heart of this home. Here, the raised ceiling is punctuated with four skylights which fill the room with natural light. The high-gloss fitted kitchen boasts integral appliances topped with wrap-around granite work surfaces, and the central island provides breakfast bar seating. The dining area has stunning views over the garden via large bi-fold doors that open to the paved terrace area, with raised flower and shrub border. The family room has a wood burning stove ideal for cosy nights in. The further reception room is perfect for refined entertaining or as a media/playroom. The study, with French doors to the garden, is ideal for home working or for use as a fifth bedroom. There is also a fitted utility room, cloakroom with shower, and external door providing side access.
On the first floor, the light and airy principal bedroom has views over the rear garden and a contemporary en suite shower room. This floor also has three further beautifully presented bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes, and a modern family bathroom.
The southerly-facing, mature rear garden is of exceptional size, with a paved sun terrace and expansive lawn bordered by tall trees and shrubs creating a private, verdant oasis, unusual for a town-centre setting.
To the rear, behind the laurel hedge, is a sheltered area with a firepit, perfect for evening entertainment, which could be an ideal annexe area. The garden is completed by a secure bike shed, timber shed and a wood store behind trellis.

I just love this house and all it has to offer. Parking, secluded garden and well balanced family accommodation. The vaulted kitchen/ family room being my favourite room.John HensonProperty agent
