The solid wood in the entrance hall sets the scene for the quality interiors that follow and the house flows seamlessly. To the left and right are spacious double bedrooms with views to the side elevation and a full sized family bathroom opposite. Move then into a good sized living room which in turn leads into a spacious sun room and adjacent study with views over the garden. Beyond the living room is a further snug seating area through which you enter the dining room. and then through to the generous utility room and fitted breakfast kitchen. Upstairs is a lovely Master bedroom with roof terrace overlooking the garden, a family bathroom with separate shower and bath, and then finally a box room which would make an ideal dressing area or study

Sitting on approximately quarter of an acre the house is approached via a gravelled drive which leads to a double length garage, the rear of which is partially converted with full length french doors giving access to the garden. The front of the house is laid to lawn and is screened from the road by a tall hedge. The main event is to the rear with its zoned gardens. Totally private there is a lawned area with a patio, fruit trees and a path leading to a bridge over a pretty stream which burbles its way across the plot. Beyond is a further extensive lawn and then a slate chipped path leads to the vegetable garden which is screened from view. This area contains 2 garden sheds, 2 vegetable plots and a raised bed. Flowers, shrubs and trees abound. There is a sizeable potting shed adjacent to the house which takes all the garden paraphernalia. The roof terrace affords lovely views across the garden and to the village beyond.

Heating and cooking is by LPG gas and this home is double glazed throughout. Smoke alarms and a security alarm are also fitted
