Library and Study / Potential Annexe 
Not many houses boast their very own library! A large room with skylight to the ceiling and an adjoining smaller office space which also houses the Valliant boiler. One could keep the current room identities or alternatively this room could be used as a music room, home gym, or large office space for those who work from home. This space would also massively appeal to those looking to accommodate parents, dependent relatives or teenagers within their move as it has potential for use as ground floor 5th bedroom, with the study area providing plenty of space to fit ensuite bathroom facilities if desired (subject to the relevant consents). These two rooms could even be made entirely self-contained by adding an external access door to either elevation (again subject to consents).

An atmospheric room with oak panelling to the walls and door and high level wooden display shelf. The main focal point of the room is an elegant geometric inspired fireplace housing a coal effect gas fire with attractive tiled inlay. Windowed double doors allow in a good degree of natural light and open into the garden room.


Garden Room 
A tranquil room that brings the outside in, original concertina doors fold back allowing the room to flow freely into the garden in addition to a side entrance door for easy access, and a glazed pitched roof. This would be a perfect reception room to accompany the annexe if a buyer wished to keep the areas fairly separate. Another door opens into Library.

Three of the bedrooms are generous doubles and all face over the garden thus benefitting from a southerly aspect, with the master being particularly large and having room to add an ensuite if desired (subject to consents). A 4th bedroom to the corner of the property is capable of accommodating a double bed and has exposed wooden flooring. A loft hatch to the ceiling opens to reveal a pull down ladder to access a useful loft space which is fully boarded to walls and ceiling with standing height.

House Bathroom 
Comprising a three piece suite with bath, separate corner shower cubicle and hand wash basin with a heated towel rail also. The bathroom is tiled to mid-height with mosaic border and has spotlights inset to the ceiling.

Next door to the bathroom is a separate room housing the W.C. and a hand wash basin with fully tiled walls. Neighbouring the W.C. is a useful linen cupboard for storage.

As previously mentioned, the total plot is thought to be approaching two thirds of an acre with the front being mainly designated for parking space and a side entrance gate opening to a courtyard and to the detached garage. The main body of garden lies to the rear, benefitting from the south west elevation, and is shielded to all three sides with mature hedging thus meaning the property enjoys exceptional levels of privacy. The gardens are well stocked with the first section having a flat lawn area and gravel pathways winding between planted borders. Follow the pathway down past the bamboo and through a circular archway within the brick wall and it reveals another expansive section of garden. A trellis with stone flagged patio beneath looks out onto another large lawn area with a potting shed and greenhouse to the far corner, to the middle are formal, symmetrical planted areas. A tunnel strewn with Ivy leads down to the orchard, which is planted with mature apple a...

Entrance Hall 
An oak door initially leads into an oak panelled inner hall with quarry tiled floor and a door opening to the cloak closet under the stairs. An original windowed folding door then opens into the main hall which has a fabulous full height galleried staircase with a fabulous triangular stain glass feature window protruding out of the front elevation. Just off the hall, neighbouring the kitchen, are two pantry/store cupboards – useful for storing produce and goods, one of which has plumbing for a washing machine.

A generous room offering plenty of space for the modern family, kitchen units are fitted to one side topped with solid beech wood work surfaces with a stainless steel sink and drainer inset with mixer tap over. Having a gas oven and hob, in addition to space for both a tall fridge freezer and a dishwasher. A chimney breast alcove currently has a built in cupboard within providing further storage, but is crying out for a log burner or similar to be fitted to create a lovely ambiance when dining in an evening.
