Tenure: Freehold

A modern, detached 4 bedroom village property adjoining fields with fabulous views and flexible accommodation.

Situated in the heart of this popular village with views to the Church from the front and far reaching countryside views to the rear and presented in excellent condition, this property allows adaptable living.

Within a small development built in 2003 with stone elevations and a pitched tiled roof the front door opens into a spacious hallway with a large under stairs cupboard. To the right of the front door is the double aspect sitting room running the full width of the property with French doors to the garden enjoying glorious views and a multi fuel burner with a stepped stone hearth. The dining room also has doors to the garden, a wooden floor, double doors to the kitchen/ breakfast room which again has patio doors. The kitchen has a good range of wooden floor and eye level units with display shelves and part granite worktop, inset sink and drainer integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer, electric range cooker with extractor hood and space for a breakfast table overlooking the garden. There is a small lobby area, an ideal place for a dog bed by the utility room which has a side door, sink and storage cupboards, space and plumbing for white goods and houses the oil fired boiler. The ground floor also has a study, in addition to a double bedroom with dressing area, fully fitted wardrobe and en-suite bathroom with separate shower. This could either be used as the master bedroom or would make ideal accommodation for a dependent relative. In addition there is another double bedroom on the ground floor and a bathroom.

On the first floor landing there is an airing cupboard with pressurised hot water tank. Bedroom 1 is very generously proportioned and has wonderful views over the surrounding countryside, built in wardrobes and a large store cupboard ready to install an en-suite. This could also be the master bedroom. There is second bedroom with cupboards and a bathroom.
The main feature of the property is the lovely open countryside immediately beyond the garden with far reaching views to Bulbarrow Hill. There is a stone patio and a most attractive garden laid to lawn with mature planting including honeysuckle, roses and hollyhocks. There is a green house, log store and pedestrian access to the front of the property where there is parking for several cars along with a double garage and an area of grass and trees to the side. A small strip of garden alongside the Church wall across the road is owned by this property. Views at the front are delightful of the Church, and the village pub and hall are a short stroll away.
Overall the vendors have most enjoyed the tranquillity, wonderful views and strong village community.
