BRIEF DESCRIPTION Situated on a generous plot, The Hawthorns has been constructed to a design offering living accommodation over three floors with versatility as to how the rooms could be utilised and is covered by a LABC warranty. The second floor is currently formatted as a guest bedroom with an en-suite shower room together with a further bedroom. This bedroom could easily be used as a further reception room allowing this area of the home to be a retreat for a teenager or older family member who wishes to have an element of independence within the family home. In total, there are five bedrooms and on the ground floor the standout room of the home is the open plan living dining kitchen, which welcomes in the generous rear garden via bi-fold doors. The kitchen features a contemporary range of coloured high gloss finished units with a peninsular breakfast bar, all with solid wood surfaces and some integrated appliances. The kitchen floor is tiled and this runs through to the separate utility room. Double doors lead from the dining area into a separate living room, itself a dual aspect room with bi-fold doors to the rear providing access to the paved seating terrace. Upon entry to the home one is greeted by an entrance hall with spindled staircase off to the first floor accommodation. There is a cloakroom/WC off and to the stairwell is a double storey full-height window which provides a light and airy feel to this area. On the first floor, there are three bedrooms, the master with en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom fitted with a three piece white suite. The property is fully double glazed and benefits from oil fired central heating, with the oil tank being situated behind a detached timber framed double garage set on a concrete base which has fixed solar panels to the roof which provide free hot water. A biodigester is situated within the garden to deal with sewerage from the home and the run off is at the foot of the garden. The rear garden provides an excellent blank canvas for the purchaser to do as they will, but it is currently laid to lawn, well enclosed by hedging offering a good degree of privacy and backs onto agricultural land.
