A highly individual and outstanding detached property with 5 double bedrooms and tasteful decoration throughout. Set in carefully maintained gardens of approximately 1.25 acres, the house is accessed by a quiet single track, tree lined lane with sweeping grass verges. It is wonderfully secluded, and a visit is essential to appreciate its location, a primary feature of the property.

An arched porch overhung with wisteria and bespoke entrance door with leaded bevelled glass opens into an impressive wooden floored reception hallway which invites guests into the 29'3 lounge. The lounge centres around a high efficiency wood burning stove set on a black granite hearth.. To one end is a bay window overlooking the front garden, to the other end light floods in through french doors leading into the conservatory. A charming feature half circular window, now internal, has been retained from the original small bungalow. Double doors open into the dining room with bay window and single window both overlooking the gardens.

The conservatory is truly remarkable, both the windows and roof fitted with self cleaning glass. The exceptionally spacious layout offers a rectangular area, ideal for dining, adjoining a semi circular area for relaxing or entertaining. There are panoramic views across the garden, which may be accessed by either of two double doors. Access is also available to the the premium fitted kitchen which incorporates work tops, window sills and splashbacks in matching black granite and Neff appliances.
