A pedestrian gate leads to a private stone flagged courtyard, behind a high retaining wall that enjoys the late afternoon and evening sun. The solid front door with glazed top lights and surrounds opens through to a small lobby and oak floored dining hall with a couple of steps to the kitchen area. The large dining area incorporates the first of the rising staircases to a galleried landing on the upper floor and benefits from useful under-stairs storage. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of wall and base units, various integrated appliances and casement windows to the front. There is a small boiler room housing a recently installed gas fired combination boiler. The living room is in the core of the home with a feature gas fireplace and dual aspect windows and doors providing access to the walled rear courtyard with an ornate arch accessing the south facing garden. Within the contemporary addition, there is a small and niche study area with a framed window overlooking the courtyard and a single bedroom and a shower room adjacent. A second staircase leads off the study area to three bedrooms on the first floor.
Off the principal galleried landing with velux skylight, there is a bedroom with a loft mezzanine and built in wardrobes, a useful study room and a shower room. There are two further bedrooms, interconnecting, both of which are generous in scale and enjoy differing views and orientations served by a second bathroom with built-in wardrobe.
Outside, the courtyards provide ample space for alfresco dining and entertaining, both affording excellent privacy. The front garage with an electrically operated up and over door includes a utility area with the prerequisite plumbing. The south facing walled garden, in warm Redland stone, is adorned with flowering climbers, a raised rockery border and a wide range of plants, shrubs and trees providing year round colour. A flagstone corner terrace provides for lazing or entertaining adjacent to a shaped lawn and a small garden shed provides useful storage.
