Approximately 3,810 sq ft detached family house in an elevated location towards the edge of this sought-after village.
This is an exceptional, individual detached family house close to the centre yet on the outskirts of this highly desirable and sought-after village. Of part brick, part rendered elevations beneath a tiled roof, the property is understood to have been constructed in 2005 and has a versatile layout depending on one's needs. The vaulted drawing room and master suite are particularly worthy of note which also enjoy lovely views of the mature gardens and meadowland beyond. The property has the benefit of double glazing, wooden flooring on the ground floor, both integral and detached garaging and oil fired central heating (with a sunken oil tank).
The impressive light-filled vaulted entrance hall with turning stairs and galleried landing sets the tone for the rest of the house - the eye is drawn straight ahead through glazed doors and side panels into the garden/dining room and garden beyond. To the right, double doors lead to the vaulted drawing room with heavy exposed roof trusses and a wood burner set into the brick fire recess. A family room and study with fitted cabinetry flank either side of the hall, and a sitting room or playroom is at the far end close to the kitchen/breakfast room which is a delightful triple aspect room with French doors to both the garden/dining room and terrace. Fitted with a range of wooden floor and wall units with granite worktops, a wide breakfast bar, a range cooker and extractor hood this could also accommodate a dining table and or sofas. There are two utility rooms, the first adjacent to the kitchen, and the second larger one with linen store connects to the integral garage.
On the first floor, there are six bedrooms - one of which has been used as a children's sitting/playroom by the present owners. Three have recently re-fitted high quality en suite facilities - the master being particularly impressive with twin wash basins, a roll-top free standing bath and separate shower cubicle. The balcony can be approached from the landing, master or sixth bedroom and provides a delightfully peaceful place to sit and enjoy the views of the garden and beyond.
To the front of the property is a shingle drive with considerable parking area leading to both the integral and detached garaging. The predominantly west facing rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a sheltered terrace, flower and shrub beds, a variety of trees and post and rail fencing to the rear boundary allowing the enjoyment of the borrowed landscape beyond.
In all about 0.36 of an acre.
