The adaptable accommodation is arranged over three floors, with a modern extension on the ground floor providing well-proportioned living space enjoying an outlook over a pretty cottage garden to the rear. A generous lower ground floor offers scope for creating self-contained ancillary space, benefitting from a private entrance to the side. Further points of note include:
- high ceilings and period features including sash windows in the older sections, wood panel doors and pretty fireplaces (some not in use);
- character front entrance opening into a spacious reception hall with parquet flooring;
- dining room, partly open plan to a sitting room featuring a bronzed fireplace with tiled slips depicting a mountain scene and fitted with a gas-fired coal effect fire;
- kitchen enjoying a lovely outlook over the garden, wood flooring and fitted with stylish units under granite work tops. Appliances include an electric 4-ring hob, an electric oven with warming drawer below, a microwave, a fridge and a dishwasher. A separate utility room provides space for a washing machine;
- family room partly open plan to the kitchen, creating well-proportioned informal space, with doors opening out to the garden;
- two good-sized bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, a bathroom and a shower room on the first floor;
- the lower ground floor currently comprises a study, bedroom three with a shower, a cloakroom and a wine store. There is a dedicated external door on this level opening out to the East side of the house, offering the option to create a private suite.

The garden
A delightful cottage garden wraps around the property on three sides, with the majority benefitting from a southerly aspect with a well-screened backdrop of high mixed hedging and fencing providing privacy and shelter to the boundaries.

A brick terrace spans the rear, accessed from the family room and merging into a small area of lawn. The well-stocked borders support a colourful and fragrant array of herbaceous perennials, mature shrubs and trees including flowering cherry, weigela, laburnum, philadelphus, camellia, specimen acers, clematis and honeysuckle. A traditional well-tended kitchen garden lies to the side, accessed via a brick pathway.

A gravel drive to the front provides parking for two to three cars and the freehold title includes an en bloc garage.

The property is approached from Broadwater Down through an impressive entrance and a tree-lined driveway.
