Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A refurbished and extended detached family home offering deceptively spacious accommodation with well-proportioned rooms, ample natural light throughout. The house has been well look after by our clients who having lived here for over forty years have thoroughly enjoyed watching their children grow up, making the most of the flexible accommodation and good size rear garden. As the children have now flown the nest our clients are keen to down size to a bungalow in March or the surrounding villages.

Situated on the cusp of the village, but still within walking or cycling distance of the shops and the highly sought Neale Wade Academy. For dog owners or those wishing to go running or for a leisurely walk, open fields are just up the road.

Sweeping into the driveway through the double wrought iron gates the large driveway with centralised flower bed provides ample off road parking and turning circle allowing easy access straight back onto the road, removing the need to reverse onto the main road. The house is not visible from the road as it is heavily screened by mature hedging and trees to ensure maximum privacy throughout the year.

Upon entering the property it feels warm and inviting, the first signs of a happy family home. Doors lead off to all the main rooms and a staircase rises to the first floor.

RECEPTION HALL with the original parquet flooring, doors lead off to all the main rooms and a staircase rises to the first floor

The LOUNGE is positioned to the right of the entrance hall, with a large window to the front, original tiled fire surround with matching hearth, back cloth and open fire. Double doors lead through to the full width SUN LOUNGE, which has become the main hub of the house over the years and is of excellent size accommodating a full sofa suite and additional furniture. Doors lead out onto the rear terrace.

The former PLAYROOM, which is now used as a reading room has adapted its uses to suit the family. The large window to the front maximises light and one can imagine escaping from the hustle and bustle of daily life and sitting down to enjoy a good book. There is a serving hatch leading through to the kitchen, enabling this room to double up as a dining room.

The KITCHEN is of excellent size and comprises abundant work surface space, a range of eye and base level storage units, ample roll top work surfaces, inset one and half bowl sink drainer unit and a picture window into the sun lounge. There is ample space for appliances, a double fitted oven, four ring electric hob, extractor hood and light above and a book shelf to accommodate cooking and recipe books. A gas supply is available.

A door way leads through to the open plan DINING ROOM / LIVING AREA, 'L-shape' in design, which again over the years has been used for a variety of purposes including a play area, allowing children to run freely into the garden. There is a further door leading into the UTILITY ROOM and SHOWER ROOM which has a shower, low level flush WC, hand wash basin. There is access into the garage from the dining room.

FIRST FLOOR

The landing is of good size and provides access to all upstairs rooms.

The MASTER BEDROOM is located to the end of the corridor and is approached through an EN SUITE DRESSING ROOM with window to the side aspect and a further door to the bedroom. Another large window overlooks the rear garden, while sliding doors with security shutters lead out to a walk on balcony. The balcony is a particular feature and enjoys extensive views over the garden towards open farmland. Many mornings our clients have sat and enjoyed the morning sunrise. There is a staircase from the balcony that leads back down into the garden and this can also be used as a fire escape. EN SUITE BATHROOM comprising a low level flush WC, wash hand basin, with power shower and fully tiled surround.

There are three further double bedrooms while BEDROOM FIVE is currently used as an office.

The REFITTED (2016) FAMILY BATHROOM is both practical for families and ideal for those that wish to soak away the stresses of a busy day as it comprises corner standalone shower cubicle, a separate bath, low level flush WC and wash hand basin and under floor heating. With complementary tiling to the walls and matching floor tiles, the bathroom is easy to maintain.

The rear garden has been beautifully maintained by our client and has been lavished with love and dedication and offers a variety of shrubs and plants to ensure colour throughout the year, with deep borders and a shaped lawn interspersed with flower beds. Part of the garden is screened leading to a further lawned area, with greenhouses and fruit trees which back onto open farmland.

There is a large patio area positioned to ensure the benefit of the south / south-west facing garden.

The single GARAGE has an up and over door to the front, window to the side, water softener and door providing access back into the dining area. The garage could be converted into an additional room, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

The rear roof is covered with 16 solar panel providing an income and free use of generated electricity.
