About this property

  • Built in 2008 and owned by our clients since new, 6 New Heritage Way is an attractive double fronted modern house, offering well-proportioned, versatile accommodation which is well-presented throughout, decorated in a stylish muted colour palette.

    The ground floor accommodation lies off the welcoming entrance hall, from which the stairs rise to the first floor. There are two formal reception rooms: a dining room overlooking the green and a dual-aspect sitting room which has a granite fireplace with inset coal-effect electric fire and French doors opening to the garden. The house also benefits from a good-sized study, which could also be used as a playroom or snug.

    The kitchen is fitted with granite surfaces, a central island and good range of gloss cream wall hung and under-counter units. Integrated Bosch appliances include a double oven, gas hob, dishwasher and a fridge freezer; the kitchen is served by a utility room space for a washing machine and a tumble dryer, and access to the cloakroom. A good-sized study completes the ground floor.

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

    6 New Heritage Way fronts on to the green in the centre of New Heritage Way and has a lovely outlook over this open space; there is access to the house on foot via a pathway and steps from the road.

    The rear garden is of a particularly good size, mainly laid to lawn and well-enclosed by close-board fencing and hedging, giving a good degree of privacy. A large paved terrace spans the rear of the house, with a timber pergola and brick-built pizza oven to one side; the terrace adjoins a further area of decking extending around to the side of the house, creating a large space ideal for outdoor entertaining and dining.

    Steps descend to a courtesy door opening to the double garage, which has power connected. A gate opens from the garden to a parking area ahead of the garage, which is accessed via an access road to the west of the house.
