The property itself is accessed principally from the front elevation where the main entrance door opens into a reception hallway at the centre of the property, with accommodation leading in opposite directions. This briefly comprises: a full height atrium with impressive staircase leading up to the gallery style landing and windows looking out across the gardens and surrounding countryside; a fabulous 30ft sitting room with plenty of space for furniture of all tastes and a focal point consisting of a wonderful Blue Lias floor to ceiling fireplace with log burning stove. Doors open to a patio area within the rear garden. A light and airy dining room provides wonderful entertaining opportunities with space for a significant table and chairs to host large families and again enjoying windows across the entire front elevation looking out towards the gardens and surrounding countryside. The spacious and stylish modern kitchen comprises a comprehensive range of fitted wall, base and display units with a huge central island creating a sociable space and also housing further storage solutions including a wine cooler. Contrasting work surfaces include a large granite top to the centre with solid wooden work surfaces and matching up-stands to the outside units. An integrated one and a half bowl sink with hose style mixer tap is positioned conveniently for views across the gardens and integrated appliances include eye level Neff microwave oven and electric fan oven, a double width range style electric cooker with five ring induction hob over and cooker hood, dishwasher and full height refrigerator. From here a door opens out to the southern part of the grounds. A particularly large utility room doubles as a fantastic boot room, also with direct access to the rear garden, and has a range of fitted wall and base units with work surfaces and drainer sink with mixer tap. Space and plumbing is available here for a washing machine and condensing tumble dryer as well as an airing cupboard housing the recently replaced central heating boiler. A fully tiled enclosed shower room is located to one corner and features a modern white suite including flush WC, wash basin upon vanity unit and shower cubicle with mixer shower over. Completing the ground floor accommodation are: a wonderful third reception, currently used as a cinema room but providing great options for a fifth bedroom or playroom and a generous separate office with plenty of space for a number of desks and featuring a range of fitted book shelves. Two front facing windows allow for plenty of natural light and a pleasant aspect across the front gardens and surrounding countryside.

The first floor landing stretches the width of the property and has wonderful features including some exposed stone walls and substantial Oak ceiling beams. There is a large airing cupboard with fitted shelving and access into the eaves for further storage. Doors lead off to all first floor accommodation including a fabulous family bathroom of excellent proportions, mostly tiled and featuring attractive white suite comprising flush WC, suspended wash basin with mixer tap, bath with mixer tap and separate shower hose attachment and a walk-in shower cubicle with rain head style mixer shower. There are four generous double bedrooms all but one featuring fitted storage solutions and enjoying pleasant outlooks across the rear garden. The master suite is particularly impressive consisting of a huge double bedroom featuring attractive exposed stone feature wall with Oak beams and lintels as well as a dual aspect to side a rear. Storage is provided by two separate double width wardrobes. The stylish en-suite is fully tiled and again features a modern white suite including flush WC, twin wash basins over vanity unit and an impressive walk-in shower with twin head mixer shower over.

To the rear of the garage is a timber log store and to the side is a substantial wooden cabin providing a potential workshop, hobby space or further storage as required. A pathway leads from the driveway and garage across the front elevation, towards the main entrance. A substantial lawn extends from the front elevation providing a family friendly spot in which to enjoy any sunshine during the first half of the day. The path continues all the way to the southern end of the property where there is a huge patio providing a fabulous entertaining space as well as access to the kitchen. The pathway continues all the way around the side and rear of the property, linking up with the utility room and the sitting room and a second patio area enjoys a good degree of privacy with a hot tub currently in situ. The remainder of the rear garden is also laid to a substantial lawn providing another child and pet friendly environment and somewhere to enjoy any summer sunshine and privacy in the second half of the day.
