An outstanding, substantial modern village home offering a tremendous amount of versatile living and sleeping accommodation that very much belies its modest approach.
The home has been significantly improved by the current vendors, creating a flowing, sociable ambience with majority of the living accommodation thoughtfully orientated to best enjoy the established private gardens.
This generous home offers a wealth of possibility in how it can be used. On the ground floor there is a welcoming entrance hall that leads to the newly appointed bespoke kitchen/ breakfast/ family room, a room of particular note. The kitchen itself is comprehensively appointed with ample cupboard space, quality built in appliances and a central island unit offering further storage and seating. Beyond, the kitchen opens seamlessly into the recently constructed Oak frame family room with full glazed elevations with bi-folding doors that lead out to the garden. In addition to this heart of the home room there is a wonderful sitting room with a log burner, the perfect casual family room and a elegant formal drawing room with another feature fireplace and doors leading to the side terrace. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a utility/ boot room, cloakroom and internal lobby with a door to the attached double garage.
On the first floor there are four well balanced double bedrooms, the master has a well appointed en-suite bathroom. There is a fifth single room used as a study. On the second floor the loft space has been converted into a superb additional room, currently a bedroom, or offers scope to be used as a excellent home office, hobbies room or master suite should an en-suite be added.
This beautiful home has been beautifully appointed throughout and must be seen to be appreciated.
