A hidden door leads to the conveniently placed under-stairs toilet with corner hand basin. This room is the hub for family life and has a great feel about it.
An open entrance flows through to the large flagstone floored kitchen diner which is fitted with plenty of Shaker style cupboards and wood worktops, a large range gas cooker, Belfast sink (window overlooking driveway), integrated dishwasher and space and plumbing for washing machine. There is a stable door which opens onto the driveway to the side and the room then opens into the sociable dining area with space for dining table and chairs and more built in cupboards for storage. Finally, French doors open out onto the sunny patio and garden beyond.
From the top of the stairs a landing leads to the family bathroom which is decorated in white tiles and is fitted with a white suite comprising a basin, WC, and a bath with shower above.
A door to one of the spacious double bedrooms which has a great range of fitted wardrobes with white painted louvre doors and opens into the main bedroom area with window which has lovely views across the garden and treetop views across a valley. The bedroom has white painted wooden floorboards that give a traditional feel to the room.
Back from the top of the stairs, a turn in the landing opens to a spacious second landing with wooden handrail and spindles with access point to the attic.
Doorway to the extremely spacious, bright and sunny master bedroom with two windows overlooking the front and white painted traditional wooden floorboards.
Another doorway off the landing leads to the third bedroom which is again another spacious double with white wooden painted traditional floorboards and window overlooking the gardens and garage to the rear.

To the rear the property features a 120’ cottage style garden which has a variety of seating areas for full sun or shade, the first being the south facing patio just outside from the French doors of the kitchen diner. A stepping stone pathway, bordered by mature plants (roses, wild flowers and hedging which bring colour throughout the year) winds its way past a raised sleeper vegetable patch and further onto a lawned area ideal for children’s trampolines/swings with Summer House at the end. Behind the Summer House is yet more space for a garden shed and equipment. The garden is filled with flowerbeds, mature shrubs and trees which will burst into colourful life throughout the year.
