With glorious panoramic views across the open countryside opposite, this handsome property stands proud in its sought-after village setting.
Set back from the road by a smart block brick driveway flanked by lawn and high mature hedging, the house is perfectly placed to enjoy its exquisite views.
The layout and flow of the home is fabulous with the current owners maintaining its character and style as they have sensitively updated it over the years.
The spacious hallway's warm oak flooring stretches round to the rear with doors running off it at every angle.
First on the left is the spacious living room which is a welcoming space with wooden flooring and a multi fuel wood burning stove adding character and warmth in the colder months.
Opposite the dining room's traditional space delivers a great dining experience with lush green garden views.
Beyond is the home office which is ideal to escape the morning commute or alternatively it would make a good 3rd bedroom.
Returning to the hallway and to the rear is the kitchen. It is a light and spacious room with plenty of granite topped cupboards housing integrated appliances with a cleverly placed arched opening above a line of cupboards giving you garden views as you cook.
The kitchen opens into the conservatory which is flooded with light from its expanse of glass bringing the outside in. It is perfect for relaxing or entertaining in with a glazed door leading out onto the garden terrace.
Along the hallway is a modern shower room and beyond, a spacious utility room with storage cupboards, another sink for muddy paws and boots, room for additional appliances and rear access into the garden.
Climbing the carpeted stairs to the first floor there are two large double bedrooms, both with fitted cupboards and spectacular countryside views.
The family bathroom completes the first floor and is fresh and modern with a shower over the bath.
Outside at the rear, a paved terrace, perfect for alfresco dining, sits behind the house. It is a sunny garden laid mainly to lawn with a pretty mix of mature stocked beds. There is a large wooden shed for garden equipment and the garden is fully enclosed, secluded and secure with perimeter close boarded fencing, making it ideal for kids and pets. There is a double car port and off-road parking for many cars while a lawned front garden sits behind hedging screening the quiet road.
With breath taking landscape views, a quiet village location and all your first-class schooling and transport needs on your doorstep, this is the perfect home. A must see!
