SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES A charming exterior of exposed red brick, timber casement windows and a cottage porch give a flavour of the period detail lying beyond its pretty turquoise front door. You have the best of both worlds, however, as the current owners have sympathetically restored and modernised the interior creating a spectacular family home.
With the village's popular primary school and mainline station on its doorstep, the home is set back from the road by a graveled off road parking area and a long fenced front garden that winds up towards its entrance.
Deceptively spacious you enter into a light porch with room for coats and muddy boots which leads you through into the first of two reception rooms.
The living room is cosy and welcoming with plenty of room for a large sofa to curl up in front of its period fireplace in the colder months.
Directly behind is the dining room, conveniently placed next to the kitchen. It is less country cottage and more contemporary chic with its tiled floor, glass balustrade staircase and wood burning stove.
Next door, a luxurious family bathroom complete with traditional roll top bath, a separate cloakroom and a modern double walk in shower cubicle with open ceiling provide contemporary bathing facilities for all the family.
The stylish kitchen/breakfast room with its honey coloured units and homely range cooker provides a balance between family living and practicality. The cooking area which is beautifully defined by a range of units with a raised glass shelf is well fitted with plenty of cupboards and wooden work surfaces. A butler sink is thoughtfully placed under the window enabling you to keep a watchful eye over the children as they play in the garden as you wash up. There is an integrated dishwasher and space for a fridge/freezer while a wooden breakfast bar with seating for stools wraps round the wall to the left adding interest to the space which is flooded with light from the ceiling Velux windows and French doors leading out to the garden.
The contemporary staircase leads you up to the first floor's two double bedrooms, one with a wall of fitted wardrobes and both with period fireplaces.
The second floor has a further delightful double bedroom with excellent storage space which is flooded with light from its glass wall adjoining the staircase and two double aspect Velux windows.
A rear graveled and stone garden with colorful and interesting plants and a stretch of artificial lawn to the front delivers comfort and play in equal measure with plenty of space for alfresco dining.
