Full description

DESCRIPTION

A mature individual village house, understood to have been built in 1964 and constructed of brick elevations with triple glazing virtually throughout (installed in 2015) and the benefit of a new condensing boiler (replaced in 2015) and cavity wall insulation, making it extremely economical to heat.  The property has been redesigned over the years by the current owners who have resided at the property since 1992, and have carried out considerable improvements including adding a boot room and a large conservatory which has attractive views over the main garden, as well as landscaping the gardens which have particularly fine views over the valley.  The accommodation comprises a split level reception hall with inner passageway with ample space for a desk, a triple aspect sitting room with fireplace and inset log burning stove, double aspect dining room, beautifully fitted split level kitchen/breakfast room with oak units, granite work surfaces and breakfast bar and glazed double doors leading into a large conservatory which has glorious views over the rear garden and French doors onto a timber decked area.  In addition there are three bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room on this level. From the conservatory steps descend to the ground floor where there is a large guest suite (currently used as an office) with en suite cloakroom and door leading into a boiler room/store.  Also on this level is a large boot room and a triple aspect greenhouse as well as a garage with roller door.

Agent’s Note:  An internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate this light airy individual property, designed to take full advantage of the outstanding views.
