From the moment you enter the property you see that not only is the accommodation never ending but it is finished to such a fine contemporary standard that you would hardly need to lift a finger once you are in. The current owners clearly have an eye for detail as the well-proportioned accommodation is immaculately presented throughout and comprises a vast entrance hall, contemporary guest WC, huge 27'10" long dual aspect living room, conservatory and one of the most tremendous open plan family kitchen dining utility areas I have ever seen; the total width of the rooms spans over 39 foot and comprises of a large dining area, huge kitchen with solid granite worktops and a central work island with double doors opening to the rear garden and a utility area. The accommodation is also very well laid out as the long entrance hall then leads away from the living accommodation and on to the bedrooms which comprises a wonderful master bedroom suite providing a large double master bedroom measuring 22'6" x 13'5" with an archway opening to a private dressing room and immaculately fitted modern en-suite, there is also a second double bedroom with en-suite along with bedrooms four and five, a study and an immaculate contemporary bathroom with an amazingly fitted bathroom suite can also be found to the ground floor. The accommodation doesn't end there as steps lead up from the rear hallway to the second bedroom which is again a good sized double with an en-suite. The layout of the accommodation allows itself easily to create an annexe if required (subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions and building regs). Externally a large driveway sweeps up to the detached double garage whilst to the rear is a fabulous private entertaining space with Astro turf grass and a decking area accessed via the conservatory and an impressive timber built barbecue hut with built-in barbecue pit. This property will be one of the most impressive that you view and is a real party house so, if you like entertaining, you simply must view it, so don't delay.
