Full description

Highfields is an attractive property of brick elevations under a pitched clay tiled roof. Built in 1989, Highfields forms part of a small, exclusive development consisting of four detached homes accessed via a private gravelled driveway and shaded from West Street by an attractive Beech hedge. Highfields benefits from its delightfully private village location and views over open fields to the rear.

It is evident that this beautifully presented property has been lovingly maintained by the current owners. There are replacement UPVC windows throughout and the kitchen/breakfast room and bathrooms have all been upgraded in recent years. Particular features include the fully fitted Country Image kitchen, the large master bedroom with spacious ensuite bath/shower room and the delightful landscaped gardens.

Approaching the property via the gravel driveway, there is space for two cars leading on to the double garage. The glazed front door leads into a spacious entrance hall with stairs leading to the first floor and a large under-stairs cupboard. The light and airy sitting room, located at the front of the property has a large bay-style window overlooking the front garden. There are glazed double doors opening into the dining room and a brick built fireplace with inset gas fire.

The dining room, with glazed double doors to the sitting room also has a sliding door leading through into the conservatory allowing the natural light to flood in and affording views to the garden. The conservatory has brick built dwarf walls, again affording views to and with a door to the garden.

The stylish 'Country Image' kitchen/breakfast room has a window to the rear and a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted, solid oak units. There are granite worktops, tiled splashbacks and ceramic tiled floor. Integrated appliances include a larder style fridge/freezer and Neff washing machine, dishwasher, electric oven and gas hob. There is space for a table and chairs and attractive exposed brickwork to one wall. A door leads through to a covered passageway with personnel access to the double garage and there is a useful storage cupboard.

Also on the ground floor is a useful study with a range of fitted shelving and cupboards and a recently updated cloakroom.

The staircase leads to the first floor and the light and airy galleried landing. There is loft access and doors to the bedrooms and family bathroom.

The master bedroom affords wonderful views over the landscaped gardens and onto open fields. There is a comprehensive range of 'Country Image' fitted storage to include two large, glazed wardrobes. An arched doorway leads through to the spacious, fully tiled ensuite, comprising large walk-in shower cubicle, panelled bath with mixer tap and shower attachment, pedestal wash hand basin and WC. There is a useful built in storage cabinet with mirror over and a heated towel rail.

The double garage, with power and lighting can be accessed via a pair of up and over doors to the front or via a personnel door from the covered passageway. The covered passageway is a most useful space for muddy boots and dogs, with doors to the front and rear garden, garage and kitchen.
