Positioned well within its plot behind hardwood electric gates with wrought iron railings, the property is approached by a sweeping tree lined gravel bonded resin driveway.

The property has been constructed to the utmost quality using a handmade York brick and a complementing clay roof tile and is immediately apparent upon entering the oak timber framed porch way with lead detailing. The grand entrance reception hall creates a lasting first impression with stunning views of the gardens and grounds from the full height oak framed windows.

The spacious reception rooms are well arranged for family living whilst lending themselves for entertaining and includes a triple aspect drawing room, with a central Marble surround fireplace with French windows opening onto the rear and front garden; a versatile dining room/family room enjoying a front aspect with hand appointed units, window seat and feature slate fireplace, which leads immediately into the breakfast kitchen. The bespoke kitchen has been principally designed to embrace the views and has a range of hand painted units beneath Corian work surfaces with a range of integrated Miele appliances and a set of French windows open onto the slate terrace.
The utility/boot room leading from the kitchen offers further integrated appliances and storage with an external door leading to the front of the house.

Downstairs, a large open hallway is flooded with natural light from the feature full height window and leads through to a generous bedroom suite with a fitted dressing room and ensuite bathroom and French doors lead to the sunken garden. A versatile recreational room lends itself to many uses, such as a cinema room or gym. From here, there is a laundry/plant room with complementing units to the kitchen and a lobby area, off which there is a shower room and a door to an external staircase.

On the first floor, four bedroom suites have impressive cathedral ceilings, built in lined wardrobes and individually designed bathrooms.
