Eight other primary schools within 3 miles are “Good” or “Outstanding”, as are nine secondary schools within an eight-mile radius.

Access to all rooms is via a t-shaped hallway with under-floor heating leading through a panel-glazed door to the heart of the home.
The kitchen/living area featuring exposed beams spans the whole width of the property. Plenty of natural light shines through the modern bi-fold doors to enjoy the open countryside views beyond the garden boundary, French doors to the garden, and four skylights supplemented by four pendant light fittings and recessed lighting.
There is plenty of room for a three-piece suite, a dining table for six people, and further furniture. The space is kept warm from tiled under-floor heating, a wood-burner stove and column radiator.
The imported German kitchen features a quartz-topped central island station with ceramic hob and space for four to sit. A quartz worktop to one wall has matching base units, cupboards, a 1.5-drainer sink, open shelving and LED lighting. The integrated Neff appliances include a dishwasher, double electric oven with microwave, double fridge and double freezer. The kitchen also boasts a “Quooker” hot tap providing boiling water on demand.
