A quite superb, heavily extended family home offering spacious, interchangeable internal accommodation finished to a particularly high standard, in addition to a beautiful, deceptively generous rear garden.
Approach to the home is onto a hard standing driveway allowing parking for two vehicles, a low perimeter wall runs along the front with a small lawn area, beyond here a footpath leads to a smart black composite front door. Once inside the entrance hall is a welcoming space with stairs directly ahead leading to the first floor accommodation, whilst a cloakroom sits to one side and comprises of a low level wc and wash hand basin set into a vanity unit. An opening from the hallway provides access into a snug/playroom which has been laid with a light wood flooring and has a window overlooking the rear garden. This would, conceivably, work equally well as a home office/work from home space if required. A stunning dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room occupies the middle of the home and has been refitted with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted white high gloss units with contrasting darker grey quartz work surfaces over. Several integrated appliances have been cleverly woven into the design including a hob, double oven/microwave and stainless steel extractor hood, whilst additional space has been created for other free standing appliances such as a fridge/freezer. With attention to detail in mind a delightful island provides further work station space as well as allowing stools to tuck under doubling as a breakfast bar. Modern grey metro block tiles add a splash of opulence and a continuation of the light wood flooring ties the entirety of the ground floor together seamlessly. Nestled next to this is a useful utility room ideal for shutting other white goods away and to this end a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer utilise this space perfectly. Completing this level is a wonderful lounge/diner. This has been immaculately decorated in neutral tones and hues with a clear separation between the living space and the dining area, ensuring the perfect combination for family time as well as an entertaining area. Three good sized windows further enhance the space and flood the room with ample natural daylight. Moving upstairs a spacious landing gives way to all the first floor accommodation, the master of which benefits from a further two windows and has been updated with recessed ceiling spotlights. It has also been fitted with the convenience of its own en-suite which comprises of a shower enclosure, low level wc and wash hand basin set into a contemporary vanity unit. Smart modern tiling and pillar box style window contemporise the space even further. Meanwhile four additional bedrooms are provided and are all particularly well proportioned, allowing for simple, flexible furniture placement. They are serviced by a three piece family bathroom offering panelled bath with shower unit positioned over, low level wc and pedestal wash hand basin. Again, modern tiling (half height in areas) as well as a heated towel rail and obscure glazed window finish the look perfectly.
Externally the rear garden has been immaculately tended to provide real interest and offers a South/Westerly orientation. Having been laid principally to lawn deep, shaped borders have been well stocked with an assortment of established plants, shrubs and bushes, while several mature fruit trees including a pear, plum and apple, dot the plot. Butted up against the house is an ample paved patio area, ideal for relaxing or entertaining with timber storage to one side. The boundary is enclosed by timber fencing.
