Set under a tiled roof with a mixture of brick and timber clad elevations, the property has come to the end of a significant programme of refurbishment and is finished to exacting standards and set on a generous secluded plot approaching 0.7 acres.

The main entrance leads into a useful entrance lobby and in turn through to a generous welcoming reception hall with stairs leading up to the first floor and a superb seating area set to one side around a central double-sided fireplace with a beautiful herringbone wood floor and which leads into a triple aspect drawing room set around the feature fireplace with inset attractive beams and French doors leading out to the gardens.

A stunning kitchen/dining room is set across the rear of the property with a large expanse of glazing with outstanding views across the rear gardens and paddocks beyond.

Large sliding panoramic doors are set to the external wall which open directly out onto the gardens and terrace.

A further door from here leads into a rear lobby with access to the garden which makes a useful boot room area and leads into the utility room with coordinating kitchen units, sink unit and additional work surfaces with space and plumbing for appliances.

A door from the kitchen leads back into the reception hall and accesses a good-sized media room to one side and cloakroom.

The first floor offers four generous bedrooms and a family bathroom accessed along a long hallway with views across the front gardens and drive.

The principal suite is set to one end of the property with a walk through dressing area with built in clothes storage with an ensuite bathroom to one side which offers a walk in shower. The bedroom area offers aspects on three sides across the gardens with full length windows to the rear with elevated views across the paddocks and Roydon Woods beyond.
