DESCRIPTION Renovated by the present vendors, Highfield House is inspired by a modern character style. With its open plan ground floor, it is flooded with light, and is beautifully appointed with quality décor. There is a stunning kitchen area leading onto a living and dining area beyond, with an open fireplace and double doors opening to a small balcony and with steps down to the garden at the rear. There is also a downstairs loo. Upstairs is a wonderful bathroom with a roll top bath and a large separate shower, and three bedrooms, the master with stunning lake views.

That's not all! There is still future potential here as the lower ground floor provides a large garage, storage and two further rooms. It would be possible (subject to necessary consents) to install a staircase down to here from the main living accommodation. As it stands it is a great storage/utility area, but as well as being further accommodation (subject to necessary consents) it could also be a studio, workshop or home office, as there is separate access to the outside via the door to the front.

In addition, there is a pull-in to a walled front garden, and separate side vehicular access across land belonging to the cottage next door to an enclosed rear garden with driveway parking also giving access to the lower ground floor.

This stunning home is one that we highly recommend an early viewing for, as it is sure to be popular, standing in such a prime spot within this extremely popular village, and with such practical accommodation, further potential and those stunning views!

Our vendor says ... We fell in love with the potential of Highfield House. We loved the light, the view and the open plan aspect we knew we could create. The village itself clinched the deal - it has the pub and shop we could not live without; you can even post parcels and do your banking as late as 8pm!

We have noticed ... It isn't often that a property comes to the market with such a lot to offer. Not only are there lake views, but Highfield House also provides really practical and contemporary accommodation, along with the potential of further development (subject to necessary planning consents). Also perfect for a multitude of buyers - families, downsizers or buy-to-let investors - this property is central to all village amenities and so we recommend an early appointment to view!
