A substantial detached family home originally built in the 1950s close to the village centre, with no onward chain.
12 Lucas, also known as Birch House', is the epitome of a detached family home. Built on a private road in the 1950s, this property would be well suited to a growing family and is set in over a quarter of an acre of beautiful, mature gardens.
This well-proportioned home has an extremely versatile layout as shown in the floorplan, extending to nearly 2,500 square feet. Many of the rooms are dual aspect, with a lovely outlook over the garden which wraps around three sides of the house; there are some delightful southerly views of the countryside from three of the bedrooms on the first floor.
There are three good-sized reception rooms on the ground floor, together with a kitchen and breakfast room with walk-in larder. Additionally there is a useful boot room/rear hall and a cloakroom which could become a utility area. Of particular note is the large, light-filled sitting room which benefits from a vaulted, orangery-style extension with doors to the garden, and a brick open fireplace. There are five bedrooms on the first floor lying off a spacious landing, served by an en suite bathroom to the main bedroom, a family bathroom and a small shower room.
The house is approached by a gated driveway which offers parking for several vehicles and leads to the garage. The colourful, well-stocked garden is laid to lawn dotted with mature shrub and flower borders, with a number of seating areas, a kitchen garden, fruit trees and a chicken enclosure. In all, about 0.27 of an acre.

Birch House is a really good sized family home, waiting for its next owner to put their mark on it. The gardens are beautiful, a real sanctuary, and the house is perfectly placed for the many amenities that this popular village has to offer.Hannah Riches
