Description

Green Acres is a detached house with Bradstone elevations under a tiled roof. The house is believed to be of 1960s construction with later additions. In more recent times the current owner has improved and extended the house. These include the garden room, double glazing throughout, fitted hardwood internal doors with chrome door furniture, hardwood floors, open tread wooden staircase, block glass internal walls,
bespoke handmade built-in storage cupboards, under floor heating throughout apart from the kitchen and utility room.
Bespoke kitchen has base and eye level units with wooden work surfaces, all enjoying an aspect over the garden and views beyond.
The sitting room has fireplace with wood burner, picture window to the southern elevation with sliding doors which gives access
to the terrace and views across the garden and countryside beyond. This is a spacious and light room ideal for entertaining.
The garden room is an excellent addition and has limestone floor, under-floor heating, picture windows to the southern and western elevations with concertina double glazed doors all giving
access to the terrace and views across the garden and countryside beyond. This is a light room ideal for both summer and winter entertaining.
At first floor the galleried landing with wooden flooring leads to three bedrooms, each with a dormer window allowing the light to
spill in providing far reaching views. Wooden floors and tidy decor compliment the overall feeling of space and light.
The bath/shower rooms have white fittings, tiled walls, laminate wooden floors and heated towel rails.
The house benefits from extensive paved entertaining area to the rear which provides an elevated southerly aspect over the garden and the views to the south over open countryside.
