The property

Ground floor

A part glazed front entrance door opens into a welcoming hallway with an Oak floor, stairs rising to the first floor with storage cupboard and doors leading off to all principal reception rooms and the utility room/pantry. This room we understand is a former WC and retains the plumbing should the need arise to return it to a downstairs toilet.

The sitting room is a generous L-shaped room with two windows to the front and a door with glazed side panels to the rear. The focal point of this room is an attractive redbrick fireplace with Oak bressummer beam, tiled hearth and inset wood burning stove. Across the hall and with a window to the front is a second good sized reception room. This is currently used as a study but lends itself to a variety of uses e.g. a dining room or playroom.

Adjacent lies the kitchen which in turn flows seamlessly into the garden room. The kitchen has a tiled floor and is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base mounted units with work surfaces over and tiled splash backs. There is space for a range style oven with extractor hood and integrated is a fridge freezer and dishwasher. There is an inset sink drainer unit and a window to the side. The garden room has a matching tiled floor and offers a triple aspect overlooking the gardens and pool terrace. There are several fitted cupboards and a door to the rear.

First floor

Stairs rise to the first floor landing where doors lead to three bedrooms and the family bathroom. There is a door to an airing cupboard and a window to the front.

The master bedroom is a spacious room with a window to the front and two sets of fitted wardrobes. There are doors to an eaves storage area and a door to the ensuite shower room. The ensuite has a window to the rear and is mostly tiled. There is a fitted suite comprising WC, shower cubicle and vanity unit with inset hand wash basin. Bedroom two has a window to the front and a fitted wardrobe whilst bedroom three has a window to the rear and a fitted wardrobe. The family bathroom is fully tiled and has a window to the rear. There is a four fitted suite comprising; panel bath, shower cubicle, WC and pedestal hand wash basin.


The property is accessed via a shingle driveway which provides parking for several vehicles. A mature hedge retains it from the road and double gates open into a further block paved parking area which leads to the garage.

The garage is a generous single with an up and over door to the front, two windows to the side and a door to a laundry/changing room for the pool. Here there is a window to the rear, a stainless steel sink unit, plumbing for a washing machine and a door to a WC. This garage building offers scope for conversion subject to the necessary permissions.

To the rear of the property is a paved pathway bordered by raised beds, planted with a selection of mature shrubs and bedding plants. The pathway leads to a boiler room and separate pool house. The pool terrace is paved and surrounded by well stocked beds. The pool itself is heated via a separate oil boiler and has an electric cover.

The remaining garden is laid mostly to lawn with a selection of raised and conventional planted beds. To one side is a garden room with windows to three sides overlooking the lawns. This currently houses a hot tub and to one side is a paved patio. At the bottom of the garden there is a large workshop measuring 19'10" x 11'1" which has windows to the garden and power and light is connected. The grounds and enclosed by a high brick wall which creates a beautiful private and sheltered space.
