The House... - This substantial detached family home was built in the mid 1960s and occupies an elevated position in this quiet cul-de-sac, with glorious westerly views to the front and a most convenient location for the village’s mainline station and primary school.
The current vendors have been in occupation since 2014 and undertaken numerous works to enlarge and improve the house including an exceptional loft conversion, first floor extension and conversion of the garage (in 2015) meaning the house now offers an excellent 2,317 sq ft of accommodation.
A central entrance hall enjoys beautiful herringbone parquet flooring that flows through to the spacious L-shaped sitting/dining room that extends to 24ft x 19ft. The room is flooded with natural light due to its dual aspect and has an open fireplace that is perfect for a cold winter’s evening. ‘French’ doors open on to the patio for ‘inside-outside’ living in the summer and the large window enjoys a pleasing vista.
The 27ft kitchen/breakfast/family room is a great space for entertaining with a triple aspect. The kitchen itself has a central island, white gloss units and wooden worktops. There are a range of integrated appliances including oven/hob, dishwasher and washing machine and side door onto the garden. The ground floor also has a cloakroom.
On the first floor the central landing was extended in 2015 to create a really useful study area with the delightful views – the perfect work from home space. Each of the bedrooms on the first floor are spacious double rooms, three of which have built in wardrobes. There is a modern en-suite to one bedroom which has a ‘Jack & Jill’ setup with the contemporary family bathroom, with jacuzzi bath.
A bespoke oak staircase leads to the second floor which comprises entirely of the superb principal bedroom suite that is private from the rest of the house. The bedroom area enjoys a range of fitted drawers and an enormous ‘velux’ window frames a stunning view. There is a contemporary, high specification en-suite shower room that leads through to a walk-in dressing room – making this the perfect master bedroom.
Further attributes include gas fired central heating with upgraded boiler (2015) and double-glazed windows throughout.
Step Outside... - The exceptional garden studio has been superbly converted with a vaulted ceiling, electric heating and power & lighting. This space offers a host of uses including home working space, running a business, home gym or teenager’s den.
The rear garden has been beautifully landscaped with well-stocked beds and borders and a plethora of plants, flowers, shrubs and trees – including a gorgeous Magnolia. There is a gate leading directly on to the recreation ground that is perfect for children to play ball games or a to walk the dog. There are two paved terraces that are great for ‘al-fresco’ dining and expanses of lawn. To one side is a long tool shed that runs the entire depth of the house, whilst the other side provides access to the front.
The house is set well back with a sizable front garden that is laid mainly to lawn. There is driveway parking for two/three cars.
