This striking detached home has been much extended and updated over the years to create a contemporary residence with huge versatility in how the accommodation can be utilised. Of particular note is the capacity for a self-contained annexe, although this accommodation is currently configured within the main family home. With bright, modern décor the property offers a large L shaped double reception room with open fire and doors to the rear garden. An open plan kitchen dining room sits at the centre of the house whilst a sizeable family room with a wealth of built in storage creates a great den or games room for children or teenagers. A useful utility room and two cloakrooms complete the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor there are six bedrooms including a master suite with dressing room, study and en suite bathroom which can be accessed by its own staircase and which could form part of the aforementioned annexe if required. Five remaining bedrooms, off a galleried landing share a family bathroom with separate bath and shower. On the top floor there is a vast 28ft loft room, which could be converted into habitable accommodation if required (subject to consents).

The village boasts a village hall which is a hub of activity, as well as a sought after primary school and the renowned Plough Inn.
