Set back from the road by a long driveway flanked by a lawned garden, the house is perfectly placed to enjoy its exquisite views.
With a garage set neatly to the side, a large paved covered porch welcomes you in.
The layout and flow of the home, ideal for family life, is immediately apparent, as is the high-quality refurbishment completed by the present owners.

An open aspect over the double sink showcases the countryside views, making it a cook's dream.
Steps take you down into the conservatory which is flooded with light from its expanse of glass on all sides. It is a sophisticated space, prefect for relaxing, entertaining, or dining in with spectacular views and French windows that can lie open to extend your living space into the garden beyond.
Behind the kitchen is the spacious utility room with storage cupboards, another sink for muddy paws and boots, room for additional appliances and access into the integral garage.
At the far end of the hallway the home office is ideal to escape the morning commute or alternatively it would make a wonderful playroom.
Carpeted stairs take you up to a landing which has access into the wide boarded loft.
The tranquil master bedroom suite to the far left has sweeping views to the front, a triple mirrored fitted wardrobe and access into its luxurious en-suite bathroom at the front with his and hers wash hand basins.
