DESCRIPTION This substantial four double bedroom detached stone fronted family home has had substantial ground works completed to separate the driveways of the neighbouring properties away from the new build house and whilst this ground work was completed, excavation of a substantial pond on the paddock below was carried out. Benefitting from mains gas fired underfloor heating, the generous entrance hall has a glass and Oak turning staircase rising to the impressive galleried reception room, making the most of the fantastic rural views. There is a cloakroom/WC and glazed doors to both a good size, triple aspect living room and a wonderful kitchen/dining room with built-in appliances and doorway through to a larger than average utility room. Also accessible from the kitchen/dining room lies a substantial double garage housing the central heating boiler, with twin up-and-over doors leading onto the driveway. Off the galleried landing lies a substantial master bedroom, again making the most of the stunning rural views, with walk-in wardrobe and ensuite shower room. There is a further guest room with ensuite shower room, a family bathroom with separate shower and two further double bedrooms. The quality of the finished property needs to be internally viewed to be fully appreciated. With sweeping lawned gardens to the rear and natural hedgerow boundaries, whilst to the front of the property is a patio allowing the owner to enjoy 'al fresco' dining space with the stunning rural views. There is a driveway with off-road parking for four to five vehicles and the drive sweeps down to the lane, with a further driveway across the lane leading down to the paddock which has been landscaped to include the pond and will house a summerhouse with power and water connected. This will give the owners another wonderful vantage point to enjoy their beautiful valley views.
