Features Of The Property - This attractive family residence was originally a pair of Duke of Bedford cottages which have been successfully extended to create a most comfortable residence. The accommodation is clearly illustrated on the floorplan overleaf and briefly comprises an entrance hall with understairs storage cupboard, door to the music/family room and access through to the elegant lounge which has attractive flag slate floors. A door leads to the kitchen/dining room which is on a split level, the upper kitchen area has granite worktops, attractive terracotta style tiled floors and a 2-plate, 4-oven electric Aga. Steps lead down to the dining area with doors opening onto the attractive terrace, ideal for al fresco dining. The conservatory leads off the dining room, built on a brick base with a tiled floor and doors to the rear garden. From the kitchen, there is access to the scullery, walk-in larder, boot room and utility room.
The remnants of the original layout can be seen in the first floor which is accessed from two staircases, concealed by doors in the entrance hall and lounge. Each staircase has a half landing with a wet room, and then each leads on to three bedrooms, one wing having an additional family bathroom.
