This deceptively spacious house has been extended in recent years to create a practical family home with adaptable accommodation. Approached from the gravel drive, the pretty, part glazed front door leads into the hall with slate tiled entrance and an oak timber floor. The sitting room has a bay window with views to the front and is equipped with fibre optic wiring for TV and surround sound stereo systems. There is also an efficient Stovax wood burner that creates warmth throughout the house. The kitchen/dining room has a range of light wood units with granite work surfaces and ample cupboards. There is an integral Smeg dishwasher and plumbing for a washing machine or wine cooler. Beyond the kitchen is a family room with large glazed doors out to the garden. This is a light and spacious room with under floor heating, ideal for year round living. There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor and also a study. The utility/shower room has plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer as well as a Grohe shower, Roca wc and hand basin, installed in 2016, and also a mega flow tank. Upstairs, the original loft space has been extended to provide two double bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes and one with generous eaves storage. Both these rooms have triple aspect windows so are bright throughout the day. The bathroom, refitted in 2016, has Villeroy & Boch bath with Grohe power shower over, basin and wc. The house benefits from gas central heating and double glazing.

Somerley is set back from the road with parking for several vehicles on the gravel driveway behind wrought iron gates. The drive continues down the side of the house to the garage. To the rear of the house, the south westerly facing garden is predominantly laid to lawn. There is a productive fruit and vegetable area, which includes an apple and a plum tree, rhubarb, gooseberries and raspberry canes. There is an open aspect to the rear and mature hedging surrounds the garden. Exterior lighting illuminates the garden at night.
