SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES Hidden away up a shared drive with glorious wrap around gardens, this home is in an idyllic rural position with only a couple of neighboring properties making it a lovely private spot.
A pretty exterior of white weatherboarding and exposed brick entice you into a hallway with plenty of space for coats and muddy boots.
Once inside, you can see right through to the leafy green outlook framing the windows at the rear of the long kitchen.
The kitchen is spacious and bright with a range of fitted units and wooden countertops and is a perfect family kitchen with plenty of room for cooking.
To the rear, a part glazed door provides direct access to the terrace with a well-stocked herb garden conveniently planted just behind.
To the right is the charming open plan living/dining room which is flooded with light from its dual aspect windows. An exposed brick chimney breast with wood burning stove and bressumer beam over adds character and warmth to this relaxing space. It is a light and spacious room, perfect for dining and entertaining in.
An open arch leads you into the family room at the back which is used by the current owners as a home office and music room. It has plenty of fitted cabinetry and would work just as well as a child's playroom.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor there are three good sized bedrooms all flooded with light from their pretty windows. The third bedroom, currently set up as a dressing room, can be easily converted back to a room in its own right.
A large stylish family bathroom completes the first floor.
This delightful home has the advantage of a large private garden that wraps around the rear and side of the property. Accessed from the front and directly off the kitchen you can bake using plums, figs and apples from your own trees. The garden is well stocked with mature trees, shrubs and plants with a defined alfresco dining area perfect for evening entertainment, but that is not all. Stone steps entice you over the grass to an absolute gem; a garden studio with electrics and an abundance of space. Whether you need a home studio for your creativity, an office to escape the commute, a den for teenage children or a playroom for younger ones this space is ideal.
Private and peaceful but with fast rail connections to central London and first-class schools on your doorstep, it is the perfect home for families with professional needs who want the best of both worlds.
