A smart exterior of exposed brick contrasts beautifully with its duck egg blue entrance door and gravelled driveway, delivering plenty of kerb appeal for this beautiful home.

It is neatly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of life, down a quiet street behind the picturesque village pond. However, it delivers the best of both worlds as it is also a short walk from local shops, sought after schools and excellent transport links.

It was recently refurbished to a high standard, to sympathetically create a period cottage with a modern twist.

Deceptively spacious, you enter the living room, the first of two reception rooms. It is a welcoming space with warm wooden flooring, accents of wall colour and ample room for furniture.

Directly behind is the dining/family room, conveniently placed next to the kitchen. It is a generous space with plenty of room for a table and chairs and a sofa too. A glazed door offers views of the garden and a deep under stairs storage cupboard keeps the area clutter free.

At the rear you step down into the stylish kitchen which delivers wonderful cooking facilities with an abundance of cream cabinets topped with wooden work surfaces. A butler sink is thoughtfully placed under the window and there is a fitted oven and space and plumbing for additional appliances. Dual aspect windows bring in pretty garden views.

The central staircase, leads you up to the first floor's two bedrooms, both immaculate doubles with a restful feel.

A stylish and contemporary bathroom with shower over the bath completes the floor.

Outside the sunny rear garden has a decked terrace, perfect for alfresco dining, and an area of lawn which is fully enclosed offering a safe sanctuary for pets and children.
There is also a wonderful partly glazed garden studio with electricity and lighting that sits discreetly at the rear, offering a home studio for your creativity, an extra home office, a den for teenage children or a playroom for younger ones.

This fabulous period home, close to Holden Pond and opposite the woodland and green common beyond, is welcoming, spacious and well-presented; perfect to move in straight away. A must see!
