This fantastic family home is set back from its quiet street by a grass verge and a low brick wall that borders its pretty front garden.
A hard surface driveway, which provides off street parking for several cars, sits in front of an integral garage. There is space for bin storage to the side and a wooden gate provides rear garden access.
The smart exterior of the house is a mix of brick and hung tiles, with handsome double bay windows drenching the house with light.
A part stained glass door opens into a bright hallway, with a useful under stairs storage cupboard.
To the right light pours into the spacious living room through its large bay window overlooking the street. It is a welcoming space with feature tiled fireplace adding character to the room.
Behind is a delightful family room whose glazed door leads out onto the garden terrace. It a lovely space for cosy family evenings in.
Next door the kitchen is light with plenty of cupboards, worktop space and space for appliances. A larder cupboard adds to the storage space and the sink is cleverly placed under the window letting you watch the children play in the garden as you cook.
Conveniently placed next to the kitchen is the spacious dining room whose rear wall of glass with double French doors brings views of the garden in.
An internal lobby to the rear gives access into the guest cloakroom and large integral garage, which offers lots of storage space and has development potential.
Returning to the hallway, the stairs take you up to a wide landing which has access into a large loft space, ideal for extending the house upwards.
The spacious master bedroom, with a dressing area with fitted wardrobes, also enjoys a large en-suite, with separate bath and shower cubicle.
Three further bedrooms, two of which are large doubles, a bathroom and separate cloakroom complete the first floor.
Outside at the rear, a paved terrace, perfect for alfresco dining, sits at the back of the house and fronts a large lawned area edged by mature hedging, flowers and plants. There is a shed and a greenhouse to the rear and the open views across the neighbouring gardens are spectacular.
This bright, spacious home set in its quiet village location with all your first-class schooling and transport needs on your doorstep is perfect for a growing family.
There is also fantastic development opportunity for a loft conversion or rear extension and redevelopment of the garage, subject to the usual planning consents, of course. A must see!
