The Property

This individual family house was built in the mid 1970's and has been refurbished and extended by the current owners over the last six years. They have added a two storey rear extension to create a wonderful kitchen/family room and enlarge two of the bedrooms. The windows have been replaced with UPVC double glazed units with a grey finish. The sliding doors in the sitting room and kitchen are matching but are aluminium. The house is situated in an excellent position, on a no-through road, towards the edge of the village. The large south facing rear garden is also a delightful feature.

The Accommodation

The recessed front door leads into a tiled hall. Staircase off with cupboard under and cloakroom opposite. The dual aspect sitting room has a log burner, double doors from the hall and access to the garden. The study is again dual aspect, and has wood flooring. It would make an ideal teenage den. The heart of the home is the large kitchen/dining/family room which is triple aspect with a tiled floor. There is a log burner and three sets of doors into the garden, making it a very light and airy room. The kitchen area has an electric double oven, hob and extractor. The island/breakfast bar houses the sink and the dishwasher. The tiled floor continues into the adjacent utility, which has space for two under counter appliances, the boiler and an external door. On the first floor the master bedroom has a dressing area with wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with separate shower. Bedroom two has an en suite shower and there are two further double bedrooms. The family bathroom has a shower over the bath. On the landing there is the airing cupboard, a second cupboard and access to the loft, which has a ladder.
