The study is located to the front of the home with a window overlooking the side aspect. The lounge features an exposed red brick fireplace with inset living flame gas fire and has double glazed sliding patio doors with views of the rear garden, paddock and surrounding open countryside. The dining room is a lovely room for formal dining conveniently located next to the kitchen and extends into a conservatory style garden room which offers continued views of the garden with French doors opening into the rear garden.

The current owners refitted the kitchen which now offers a comprehensive range of wall and base units in a classic white finish with contrasting wood effect worksurface over. Integral Neff appliances including a dishwasher, refrigerator are built-in and include a built-in oven and hob with canopy extractor hood. The quarry floor leads from the kitchen to the utility area with further storage cupboards, inset sink and drainer, space for a washing machine and tumble dryer and a courtesy door to the double garage. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a spacious cloakroom which has a wash hand basin, low level WC and space for coats and boots.

First Floor Accommodation

The galleried landing gives access to each of the five bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom is a lovely light room benefitting from dual aspect windows, dressing area with a range of built- in wardrobes and further door leading to the ensuite bathroom which comprises low level WC, wash hand basin and shower cubicle. Bedroom two also benefits from ensuite facilities, a dormer style window overlooking the forecourt and built-in wardrobe storage. Bedrooms three and four are both double bedrooms with built- in wardrobes and incredible views. Bedroom five is a generous single room or a room to utilise as a home office or nursery. The family bathroom is finished in white with shell edge pedestal sink, side panel bath and low-level WC and also houses the airing cupboard.


The home is situated in a courtyard development with block pave driveway providing parking for several vehicles and direct access to a double garage with up and over doors. A decorative lawn garden and pathway leads to a side gate and the inner courtyard which is a lovely summer sun trap perfect for al fresco dining as this area is also accessed from the rear of the kitchen diner via the French doors.

The block paved driveway paving continues from the front of the home to a five bar gate leading to the gravel driveway which in turn gives access to the equestrian area and stables giving convenient access for anyone wishing to use a horse box, trailer or similar vehicle.
The rear garden is laid mainly to lawn with an open trellis border adorned by a variety of roses and climbing plants creating a beautiful display of colour and scent. The central flowerbed creates a very eye catching focal point within the lawn and the remaining borders are stocked with a variety of mature trees, shrubs and plants.
At the far end of the garden a large cherry tree creates a very clever shelter for the hen house located at the end of the garden.
