Tucked away under a canopy of trees this charming home sits in its woodland surroundings whilst still being only a short walk from local shops, sought after schools and excellent transport links.
A hard surface driveway with parking at the end for several cars winds down towards the house, it's gardens and woodlands behind providing a beautiful backdrop.
Although there is a front entrance door, an informal one to the side opens into a welcoming hallway with space for coats and shoes and access into a useful wet room.
First on your right is the second reception room which would make a perfect dining room, home office or even a playroom.
Next door is the elegant spacious sitting room. It is a cosy retreat with exposed beams and a large inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove offering warmth in the colder months.
Returning to the hallway and down some steps to the rear is the pretty country kitchen. Dual aspect windows bring in leafy views while wooden effect counter tops and tiled flooring contrast beautifully with the exposed brick wall and beams overhead. A glazed door to the rear leads out to the terrace and garden beyond. The kitchen delivers wonderful cooking facilities with an oil fired Stanley range cooker, slimline dishwasher, washing machine and fridge/freezer.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are two double bedrooms flooded with light from windows offering beautiful tree top views and both featuring exposed beams. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with beautiful roll top bath.
The bathroom completes the floor with a roll top bath, period detailed sanitary ware and windows bringing in natural light.
A further flight of stairs off the wide landing leads to the 2nd floor and a large space which can be used as 3rd bedroom.
Outside the fantastic garden has a paved terrace, sloping lawns and access into rambling woodland behind. A rich variety of plants and flowers are dotted amongst the front and rear grounds which meander down towards a stream and lake behind the property.
This is a beautiful home with immense character. A must see!
