Property Details

4 5 3
Sitting in about a third of an acre with plenty of kerb appeal is this four bedroom detached family home, which provides in excess of 2000 square foot (196 sq.m) of living space and multi-functional room usage. The property has been the very much cherished and enjoyed home to our seller for the last twenty years. During this time the property has been exceptionally well maintained and has been transformed into a stylish, contemporary village home that will go a long way to satisfy the needs of many potential buyers. A great home to an existing or growing family where outdoor space is important as well as offering the potential to create an annexe for a dependent relative, if required. The property benefits from maple floorboards to the ground floor and engineered oak flooring to the first floor, gas fired central heating with underfloor heating on the ground floor and radiators to the first floor as well as having a four zone heating control, wood effect double glazing throughout, water softener and mains wired smoke detectors. The kitchen was installed about three years ago, along with the appliances and granite worksurfaces plus the en-suite and part of the bathroom was also recently been replaced. The garden has been landscaped within the last year in a Mediterranean style with a large sun terrace laid to Brazilian slate and lawns edged by crisp white paths and slate chippings. A viewing is absolutely imperative to truly appreciate both the inside and outside of this special home and the village itself.
