Key features This is an elegant, spacious 4-bedroomed home, arranged mostly on one level and ready to move into.
The carpeted entrance hall opens onto the lounge and kitchen on the right, with the utility/hobby space on the left and the master en-suite bedroom and cloakroom ahead, down 2 steps.
The lounge offers a bright roomy space for family seating and formal dining if required, its focal point being the marble fireplace with traditional coal-effect gas fire, enhanced by wall and ceiling lighting.
The breakfast kitchen is arranged with a bank of wall and base oak cabinets that includes a dresser-style display cabinet, harmonised with a mix of ceramic tiling and glass splashbacks. There is ample space for a table and chairs. There is space and plumbing for a dish-washer and an American-style fridge-freezer. The 1½ bowl sink unit is stainless steel and there is space for a range-style cooker, with extractor hood above. The kitchen is open-plan to the garden room, linked by distressed white-oak laminate flooring. This is a stunning, sunny room with views over the garden and sliding patio doors that lead onto the decked terrace.
The large utility/hobby room was originally the integral garage. The fully insulated and heated space has plumbing for a washer, space for a dryer, a large stainless steel sink and provision for the easy addition of an electric vehicle charging point. This has created a warm, versatile space ideal for modern living.
The bedrooms are arranged to either end of the property, with the king-size en-suite bedroom overlooking the garden at the rear. The en-suite shower room has a double size shower enclosure with thermostatic shower, towel-rail radiator, wash basin and close-coupled toilet. The flooring is a soft tile-effect vinyl.

The contemporary bathroom includes a p-shaped shower-bath with thermostatic shower, wash-basin with waterfall tap set into a vanity unit, towel-rail radiator, heated mirror with shaver socket and close-coupled toilet.
Double garage and gardens The detached stone-built double garage was built in 2004. It has an electric roller door, side personnel door and natural light via the side window. It features lighting, several electrical sockets, worktops and storage.
The front of the house has dual entrance driveways, with a shaped lawn and borders. To each side of the property are powder-coated steel gates ensuring privacy and security. The garden has been landscaped with an Indian stone patio, pond, raised vegetable and herb beds, and attractive flower borders. The decked terrace is approached via steps bordered by stone-filled gabion baskets. There is a separate entrance from the adjacent side road onto a hard-standing area suitable for a caravan.
