About this property

  • The Bickern is an immaculately presented four bedroom detached family home, set to the end of a
    private drive, enjoying a 0.26 acre plot with stunning, open countryside views to both the front and the rear aspects.
    The well-appointed accommodation comprises two reception rooms to the ground floor, alongside an
    open plan kitchen diner and four bedrooms to the first floor, two of which hold en-suites.

    GROUND FLOOR
    Entry to the front aspect via the external porch leads into a boot room, which in turn leads on to the entrance hall with a WC off.
    The well-proportioned sitting room occupies the front of the property with a bay window out and exposed beams, engineered oak flooring and a brick built fireplace with oak mantle and inset multi fuel burner, standing on a York stone hearth.
    The delightful garden room to the rear aspect is accessible via both glazed doors from the sitting room and the kitchen diner, offering a pleasant seating area with views over the garden and French doors out.

    Also set to the rear aspect is the attractive, 26ft kitchen diner which overlooks the garden and incorporates solid oak base and wall units with black granite work surfaces and integral appliances to include a cream Rangemaster oven with a 5 burner gas hob and extractor above, a Blomberg dishwasher and Blomberg fridge freezer. French doors lead from the dining area out to the garden. There is a utility room accessible off the kitchen, providing further base and wall storage, a secondary sink, space and plumbing for a washing machine and integral access to the double garage.

    FIRST FLOOR
    The oak and glass staircase ascends from the entrance hall to a spacious first floor landing with laundry storage off, access to the part boarded loft and onto the accommodation at this level. This comprises; a family bathroom, fitted with a pedestal wash hand basin, low level WC, a fitted bath, chrome heated towel rail and a large walk in shower enclosure, two en-suite bedrooms to the front of the property, both benefitting from far reaching views, with the larger bedroom being the principal bedroom, holding built in wardrobes and a dormer window to the front elevation and bedrooms three and four to the rear aspect, both also enjoying superb views, with bedroom three holding fitted wardrobes.

    OUTSIDE
    The lawn to the front is edged by low level laurel and there is ample off-road parking, in addition to an integral double garage with timber entrance doors, internal power, lighting and water.
    The majority of the delightful south facing rear garden is laid to lawn with deep planted borders that include a variety of shrubs and herbs, a large patio seating area off the kitchen diner, a greenhouse and useful storage shed with lighting and power, all of which is bound by post and rail fencing.

    There is a further stretch of land to the end of the rear garden included within the sale which was purchased by the owner occupiers at a later date and is now used as an orchard containing a variety of fruit trees. Adjacent to this is a smaller patio which benefits from the afternoon and evening sun.
