This immaculately presented 1930s bay fronted house has been extended and modernised by the current owners over the years to provide fantastic family accommodation with much character.
Stepping into the neat hallway with doors running off it at every angle, the home`s substantial and spacious layout is clear. It is ideal for family life whilst delivering plenty of entertaining space too.
First on the left is a bright double aspect room currently set up as a home office but which would also make a perfect play room.
Across the hall is the spacious living room whose bay window, pretty stained glass windows and decorative tiled fireplace add immense character to the room. There is plenty of space for large family sofas to curl up in at the end of a long day.
Behind is the dining room which is flooded with natural light from its windows bringing glorious garden views in while underfloor heating provides a warm and inviting dining experience on a cold winter`s evening.
Next door is the kitchen/dining room which delivers wonderful cooking facilities with warm wooden cabinets contrasting beautifully with the grey work tops and flooring. Glazed double doors lead out onto the decked terrace extending the living space in the warmer months. There is ample space for a large table and chairs to enjoy stunning garden views as you dine.
There is a useful guest cloakroom and a large separate utility space to the right which offers access to the garden, housing for extra appliances and a sink ideal for muddy boots or paws.
Up the carpeted stairs to the first floor there are four great double bedrooms which lead off the light and spacious landing.
The pretty master bedroom with stained glass windows enjoys stunning countryside views, a deep walk in wardrobe and a modern en-suite.
The large family bathroom delivers on all levels with a vanity unit, separate shower cubicle, bath and heated towel rail.
Outside to the rear is a glorious garden, which sits on a 0.4 acre plot, stretching down towards open countryside with unobstructed views. It is laid mainly to lawn and enjoys great privacy from its mature perimeter hedging and trees. A large wooden garden studio at the rear offers a great sanctuary as a home office, gym or den for teenage children. A further summer house, two brick sheds and a single garage satisfy all your storage needs.
This immaculate family home with stunning open countryside views is perfect for a growing family with easy access to the M25, fast rail connections to central London and first class schools close by. A must see!
