Tucked quietly down a private lane and nestled in the heart of its popular village setting, this pretty home oozes charm and character as soon as you approach.
Its idyllic semi- rural position is surrounded by open countryside but it also presents a perfect dynamic of excellent schools, superb transport links and even a popular gastro pub on its doorstep.
With a pretty cottage garden at the front the gardens lie predominantly to the side and rear of the house and are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs providing a high degree of privacy.
A winding pathway leads you from the spacious driveway to a canopied entrance doorway at the side, which welcomes you in.
The entrance hallway's neutral décor contrasts beautifully with its warm wooden effect flooring that seamlessly links each ground floor space. An opening into the dining area behind and glazed doors to the side with access into the living room, creates a wonderful sense of space and light.
The living room on the left does not disappoint. It is a spacious room with beautiful leaded windows flooding the room with light and a wood burning stove offering warmth in the colder months. Glazed sliding doors open into the kitchen at the rear, delivering wonderful family living and entertaining space.
The kitchen/breakfast/dining room is at the rear with two sets of glazed doors brightening the room and bringing views of the garden in. The kitchen's Shaker style cabinets provide ample storage space top and bottom with an expanse of worktops and housing for appliances. A breakfast bar with a plate rack and storage above has space for two bar stools for your morning coffee. There is ample room to the side for a dining table and chairs and further storage and space for an appliance. Bi-fold doors at the side can lie open into the family room, adding to the wonderful flow of generous living space that this home certainly delivers.
Next door the jewel in this home's crown is the vast family room that delivers versatile extra living space which could be used for anything such as your new dining room, a playroom for the children or somewhere to relax and look out into your garden.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are three generously sized bedrooms, one with a large en-suite bathroom, all flooded with light from their pretty windows with leafy views. A separate shower room offers convenience for any visiting guests.
On the second floor, the large master bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom and fitted wardrobes a plenty complete with bespoke shoe storage and a dressing table placed under one of the room's charming leaded windows.
Pretty spacious gardens of approximately 1/3 of an acre lie to the front, side and rear of the house, safely self-contained for pets and children. They are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs providing a high degree of privacy with a pond and vegetable garden fulfilling your every need.
To the front, an off-road parking space large enough for several cars sits in front of a double detached garage with power and light.
Owl Lodge is, as its name suggests, brimming with character with the current owners having sympathetically modernised the interior to create a spectacular family home. A must see!
