This individual stone built home was commissioned and built in 1978 and one can see that quality was paramount in the owners mind. An entrance lobby leads into the reception hall with narrow oak floorboards and wooden panelling creating a good first impression. The light, spacious drawing room has windows providing views to the side and front gardens, plus a central fireplace with a ‘Jet Master’ open fire. The dining room looks out over the front garden and there is also a small sitting room, study, cloakroom and utility. The kitchen/breakfast room has a walk-in larder, a navy blue gas fired Aga and a separate electric oven and gas hob. A peninsular unit divides the kitchen from the dining area which has double doors leading directly out to the terrace and garden.
The panelled staircase rises up to the central landing with all the rooms leading off this spacious area. The master suite has the benefit of an en-suite bathroom and the three further double bedrooms are all well-proportioned and served by the family bathroom.
