This deceptively spacious home is approached along a secluded shared drive, set well back from the road with glorious tranquil gardens to the rear.
With a pretty cottage front the white softwood weatherboarding and exposed brick elevations add character and charm giving you a flavour of the period detail lying beyond its front door. You have the best of both worlds, however, as the current owner has beautifully updated the interior creating a spectacular modern home.
A bright entrance hall welcomes you in with room for coats and shoes and a deep storage cupboard keeps the space clutter free.
Straight ahead is a room that is set up as a music room and home office. It is a charming space with distinctive vertical beams seamlessly linking it with the reception room beyond.
Next door the living/dining room which delivers fabulous relaxing and entertaining space is steeped in history with its exposed ceiling beams and an impressive inglenook fireplace. Its windows bring in lots of natural light whilst its elegant period detailing adds dramatic glamour to the room. It is large enough to curl up in front of the fire in deep sofas on cold winter nights or dine romantically at the far end.
Conveniently accessed from the dining area, is the pretty country kitchen with an abundance of cream wooden cabinetry, wooden effect worktops and an integrated double oven. Its window sits above the sink and French doors at the rear open up to capture the stunning garden views. It is a streamlined and spacious room with plenty of space for a table and chairs or a sofa so that you can chat to friends as you prepare the dinner.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are three bedrooms, two doubles, all flooded with light from their pretty windows with leafy views. A stylish and contemporary family bathroom completes the first floor.
Pretty spacious gardens lie to the rear, safely self-contained for pets and children. Two sheds and a greenhouse provide ample storage. They are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs providing a high degree of privacy.
An off-road parking space large enough for 2 cars sits in front of the house while a single garage lies just beyond up the drive.
This beautiful home is immaculate and brimming with character. It is also well placed for commuters being just over 3 miles from 3 local mainline stations with excellent rail links to central London. A must see!
