DESCRIPTION: A most attractive detached family house, understood to date back to the 1930's, extended and refurbished by the current owners approximately 5 years ago, to create a well-appointed family home with versatile accommodation benefitting from replacement UPVC double glazing, oil fired heating, engineered oak floor to two of the reception rooms with complementing oak joinery including the front door and internal doors.
Approached via an oak front door to a welcoming entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor. The bay-fronted family room has a door leading through to a generous size sitting room with contemporary fireplace, TV recess above and bi-fold doors opening into the dining area. This is open-plan to a stunning 'Black Rock' kitchen/breakfast room with underfloor heating and fully retractable bi-fold doors leading to the rear garden under a sloping ceiling with velux windows taking full advantage of the south westerly aspect. The kitchen has an extensive range of units to base and eye level with underlighting, in two shades of Grey, quartz work tops and matching central island/breakfast bar with 'Neff' induction hob, concealed extractor lighting, storage and 'Siemens' microwave under. The skillful design incorporates a sink, pan drawers, corner and larder carousals and two eye level 'Siemens' ovens. To one corner of the kitchen there is space for a sofa, shelving and pelmet lighting. A useful separate utility room has a work surface, sink unit, plumbing for a washing machine, window and door to the rear. There is also a separate wc. Currently there is a fifth bedroom downstairs which is an optional reception room if required.
To the first floor are four bedrooms being served by a family bathroom/wc. The master bedroom has fitted 'Hammonds' wardrobe across the full extent of one wall and an en-suite shower room suite. The third bedroom also has a built-in double wardrobe cupboard.
The property sits elevated from the road, approached over a driveway, flanked by an area laid to lawn and enclosed by hedgerow. To the rear is a delightful garden extending to approximately 100ft in depth, principally laid to lawn, approached over a decked terrace with lighting, adjacent paved terrace which continues down to a garden store adjacent to a Home Office with power, water and internet connected.
