A delightful thatched lychgate gives access to a footpath leading to the front door. There is a cosy living room with window seat, stone fireplace and inset gas fire and a modern bathroom with feature slipper bath, WC, wash basin, and recessed vanity mirror with lighting.

The superb contemporary style kitchen/dining room features a high vaulted ceiling, a decorative inglenook style fireplace with fitted gas fire, and double glazed door to the front. There is an excellent range of units and solid oak worktops, a breakfast bar, a brushed copper twin sink, and oak flooring. Appliances include integrated full height fridge and freezer, range cooker (with 6 burners and 1.5 ovens), integrated dishwasher and microwave.

The adjacent utility room has gas central heating boiler, space for washing machine and tumble dryer, and stable door to a covered outdoor entertaining area.

There is also a dual aspect sitting room with gas fire, oak strip flooring and cosy reading nook, and a study/dressing room with French doors to outside. Bedroom 1 has built-in wardrobes and a fully tiled en suite bathroom with bath, wash basin and WC.

From the living room, an open plan staircase leads to a large first floor landing with loft access.

Bedroom 2 has built-in wardrobes, bedroom 3 has a wardrobe recess, and bedroom 4 has a sloping ceiling. There is also a fully tiled shower room (with shower, wash basin and WC.)

Outside, a 5-bar gate gives access to a large gravelled driveway providing ample off road parking, and there is a separate pedestrian access through the pretty lychgate which is set in an established laurel hedge screening the property from the road. The front garden is lawned, with a timber summerhouse. The south facing rear garden offers a large degree of privacy, and features a covered entertaining area with a large garden store room (with lighting.) There is also a large summerhouse/gym, a shed and a greenhouse. The lawns are interspersed with shrubs, and there is a further timber outbuilding/home office (with a large fixed picnic table), a timber deck and a barbecue area with bench seating.

A gravelled bridleway lies within the curtilage of the property and can provide further parking.
