With a semi-rural yet convenient location, this charming detached property has been extensively extended to the rear and features a stunning living area which comprises both a modern kitchen with dining area and a sitting room. The property retains many charming period features such as beamed ceilings, fireplaces and wooden flooring but has been sympathetically updated now boasting a modern kitchen and bathroom. The house is entered via a hallway with wooden flooring and a cloakroom. To the front, with a bay window, is a bedroom, currently used as a further reception room, with pretty cast-iron fireplace. Spanning the rear of the property is an impressive living area which enables a family to relax and dine together. The kitchen retains the original brick oven alcove but has been updated with modern units with coordinating grey granite work tops and tiled flooring. Beyond this is a dining area which has a roof lantern allowing the light to flood in and full height glazing windows leading to the patio. The comfortable double aspect sitting room has a bay window overlooking the garden. There is a study which completes the ground floor. Upstairs are two bedrooms of much character with beamed ceilings, both with fitted wardrobes and with eaved storage to the master bedroom. The modern bathroom is fully tiled and with a shower over the bath and with a heated towel rail.
