Enjoying a peaceful semi-rural spot with open farmland and lush golf fairways on its doorstep this home`s tranquil location offers the best of both worlds. You can enjoy a relaxed family life, whilst benefitting from excellent schools and superb transport links a short walk away.
Set in an exclusive gated development and approached through the pretty front garden it is deceptively spacious, light and airy with a wonderful contemporary feel.

The part glazed entrance door welcomes you into a wide hallway, its oak flooring seamlessly linking it with the rest of the ground floor.
On your left is the heart of the home, the incredible open plan sitting/dining room that stretches the length of the house into the kitchen at the rear. Natural light streams in through the glazed doors and skylights at either end of the impressive room which has separate zones for relaxing, dining and entertaining in.
The kitchen at the rear delivers wonderful cooking facilities with an abundance of cream cabinets topped with black granite worktops.

Outside at the rear is a private garden laid mainly to lawn with a stone paved terrace ideal for lazy summer afternoon BBQs, but that is not all.
