SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES Screened from its tree lined street by mature hedging, a lush green garden fronts the house. A paved pathway winds up to the front door with foliage creeping up and over its canopied porch.
An off-street driveway sits to the side of the house with parking for several cars and a detached garage sits behind.
You enter into a wide hallway with the dining room first on your right.
Across the hallway to the left, the spacious living room is flooded with light from its front aspect window while its rear glazed doors bring views of the garden in. A stone enclosed fireplace adds warmth in the colder months.
Opposite, the kitchen/breakfast room is light and spacious with plenty of cupboards, worktop space, room for appliances and a table and chairs. A window is cleverly placed above the sink.
A wide lobby behind provides room for extra appliances and rear garden access. There is also a cloakroom opening off one side and a shower room with utility facilities to the other side.
Climbing the carpeted stairs to the first floor there are four bedrooms, all generous doubles, three of which have fitted cupboards.
In the centre is the bathroom with a panel enclosed bath with handheld shower attachment. A rear aspect Velux window draws in lots of natural light.
Outside to the rear, the pretty garden has an expanse of lawn with a variety of trees, plants and flowers. There is a paved terrace at the rear of the house and another to the side making it perfect for evening entertainment. High hedging and close boarded fencing offer privacy and a detached garage and a wooden shed provide plenty of storage options.
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. It is also a dream project to create your own vision and add value in the future. A must see!
