Full description

An individual and attractive, detached four bedroom home on the outskirts of a popular village with a spacious garage and outbuilding ideal for future conversion and sitting in landscaped gardens and adjoining paddock totalling 2.25 acres with striking views and NO ONWARD CHAIN.

Introduction - Converted from an old power house, this property is solidly built with modern conveniences and a contemporary and homely feel throughout, it is surprisingly private being set nicely within its grounds. It offers comfortable accommodation to suit a family or a couple and the expansive outbuilding offers potential for dual family living or someone wanting to run a business from home.

Property Description - An attractive entrance with a large wooden and part glazed front door opens in to a fantastic full height reception area that links directly into the kitchen / dining room.

This is a good sized room with a range of bespoke wooden units with worksurfaces over, double stainless steel sink and drainer, island unit, double glazed window to side, space for large gas range cooker with stainless steel hood and extractor over, tiled floor and an attractive vertical radiator. There is ample space for table and chairs, and the feature spiral staircase rises to the first floor landing.

There are connecting doors to the useful walk in pantry having a tiled floor, auto light and ample shelving. Close to the entrance door is a cloakroom with low level WC, pedestal wash hand basin, tiled floor and surround, vertical radiator and Worcester gas heating boiler.

There is also a large utility room which has a really high ceiling and was originally designed as an integral garage. It is currently being much better utilised as part of the home with a double glazed window to the side, sink unit and ample storage plus double wooden doors to the side garden. This room offers further scope for conversion (subject to planning) to create further living accommodation if required perhaps as a separate reception room, studio or annexe.

From the dining area, double doors open and flow through to the stunning living room, this wonderfully light and spacious family room has an Art Deco styled interior. The twin ceiling height vertical double glazed windows overlook the pretty gardens and their wooden shutters draw attention to the Jotul woodburner which is sat on a tiled hearth as the focal point of the room.

Part glazed doors through to the study and on to the snug and garden room. The study and snug are one room that is subtly divided into two sections, with tiled flooring, and windows to the garden plus window and sliding doors to the garden room / orangery. This is an incredibly warm and light room, ideal for growing plants or relaxing in the sun. It has a stone tiled floor, double doors to rear patio, three double glazed windows to side and glazed roof with ceiling windows, panel radiator and lighting.

Near the entrance door a feature spiral staircase rises from the reception area to the first floor galleried landing where there is a feature stained glass window and central decorative hanging light and doors off to first floor rooms.

Bedroom one is a lovely main suite with corner double glazed window, space for wardrobes, wooden floors, vertical panel radiator and steps leading up to roof terrace. This is a magnificent feature of the property, affording Southerly views across the beautifully presented rear gardens and a place to sit in the evening and enjoy the sunset. The ensuite has just been refitted with a modern white suite including a shaped bath with shower over plus a low level WC and wash hand basin set on vanity unit, vertical radiator, vanity unit, extractor fan, shaving point and light.

There are three further double bedrooms all with wooden floors and double glazed windows (two of which are interestingly designed corner shaped ones).
