The Property

Built in 2000, and one of four individually designed homes, this family property lies in a convenient location for both the primary and secondary schools. It has well planned accommodation arranged over two floors, complemented by an enclosed west facing rear garden. The generous hall and landing give the house a spacious feel and all the rooms have excellent proportions. There is scope to create a fabulous kitchen/family room by incorporating the dining room if required, with bi-fold doors into the garden. The double garage could be accessed internally via a new door in the family room, and equally could provide an annex or home office if needed.

The Accommodation

The front door leads into a hall with wood flooring and staircase off to the first floor, with a cupboard under. On the left, double doors lead into the dual aspect sitting room which has an open fireplace and double doors into the rear garden. Next door is the dining room, again with double doors into the garden and internal doors to the hall and kitchen. The good size family room is dual aspect and would make an ideal playroom, study or teenage den. The kitchen has a range of units with an electric oven, gas hob and extractor over. The dishwasher and fridge are integrated and a door leads off to the utility room, which has space for two under counter appliances, a stable door, and a cloakroom off. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with separate shower. Bedroom two has an en suite shower and the family bathroom also has a separate shower cubicle. On the landing there is a large airing cupboard with the hot water cylinder and pump for the showers. Loft access with ladder and light.


At the front is a block paved drive for up to four cars with a hedge to the front boundary. A path leads around to the right to a gate and in turn a storage area.
