Full description


Bracken Lodge is a very spacious detached house built to the vendors' bespoke design in 2010.

The principal construction is timber frame and block rendered and part brick faced externally with hamstone lintels above windows and a tiled roof. A high energy rating has been achieved and many features include oak flooring to much of the ground floor, excellent quality fittings throughout including a superb fitted kitchen, 3 ensuites and a large family bathroom. There is underfloor heating on the ground floor and the hot water system is supplemented by 3 solar panels.

At present the property offers 4 double bedrooms but if an additional bedroom suite is required on the ground floor this can be readily created in the separate lounge and study without compromising the extensive main living area.
