The house has ample, thoughtfully designed storage, gas central heating and all windows and glass doors in the house are double glazed.
The front door leads into a large entrance hall with glass doors into the lounge and into the dining room. There is a mirrored cloak cupboard and understairs cupboard with a wood turned staircase leading to the first floor.
The spacious lounge (16'7" x 16' 3" (into recess) 5.05m x 4.95m) has two concealed double radiators, large built in storage units on either side of a feature fireplace with coal effect gas fire and two large windows to the front of the property.
The dining room (19'8" x 10' 10" (5.99m x 3.3m) is large enough for a table seating 16 guests. It also has a large window facing the front of the property and a feature fireplace with a coal effect gas fire. There are several built in cupboards including a wall to wall mirrored unit which provides spacious storage and reflects light into the room.
At the rear of the property is the large, bright kitchen/family room (18'10" (narrowing to 17'11") x 12'11" (narrowing to 9'8") (5.74 x 3.94m) - the heart and the hub of the home. There are a number of kitchen units along the length of the room with extra deep worktops providing a generous amount of workspace. The sink (incorporating waste disposal) and dishwasher are located in a matching island with storage and additional worktop which overhangs at the rear to provide a breakfast bar. The Rangemaster range with double oven/grill, gas hobs and hotplate has a matching extractor hood and there is an American style fridge/freezer. Double glass doors with side lights open out onto the decked patio and rear garden.
Double doors lead from the kitchen to a study (12'2" x 9'9" 3.71m x 2.97m). This is also a bright room which could be used as a study, separate breakfast room, playroom or additional bedroom. The double doors and walls to the side could easily be removed to create an even larger open plan kitchen/living area if desired.
A utility room is located off the kitchen with plumbing for a washer and dryer and houses the Worcester gas combination boiler.
The cloak/shower room, accessed from the hall, has a basin with vanity storage, concealed cistern WC and a shower cubicle with Triton electric shower and heated towel rail.

Main suite. This suite is made up of two rooms with a connecting door which the present owners used as a bedroom (10' 10" x 10'8" 3.3m x 3.25m) with windows to the side and front, and an office (10'8" x 10'8" 3.25m x 3.25m) with a window to the front. There is a stud wall between the two rooms which could easily be removed to create a bedroom (20'18" x 10'8) with windows to the front and side. A door connects the present bedroom to the dressing room which is fitted with a range of wardrobes and cupboards (including an airing cupboard with hot water cylinder) and has two skylights. The dressing room leads to the shower room with twin basins in a vanity unit, WC, heated towel rail, shower cubicle, window to the side and skylight.

The front drive provides parking space for 5/6 cars.
Owners' note: We have happily lived in this warm family home for 35 years and have extended and remodelled it as our life circumstances have changed. It is an extremely convivial, comfortable, and flexible house which easily accommodates a large family. Due to its open plan, easy flow layout and private position, there have been many gatherings and parties over the years. We love the private location with the woods opposite, the convenience of being close to amenities but with feeling that we live in the peaceful retreat of the countryside. Tucked away with privacy, but close to everything you might need, it is a beautiful space full of flexibility, possibility and happy memories. We are very sad to leave but the time has come to downsize and move to the coast to be closer to our grandchildren. We are sure whoever chooses this home will love and enjoy it as much as we have.
