A charming four-bedroom detached property offering beautifully appointed accommodation, and includes a double garage and a sizable, south facing rear garden. The property has undergone a significant number of improvements by the current owner who has an eye for detail which is reflected in the fine décor and creative interior design.
The property comes with the potential to extend with planning permission in place to convert above the garage, creating an additional two bedrooms and bathroom or a magnificent principal suite and a study to the rear at ground floor level.
A contemporary front door sits beneath a pillared canopy and opens into an impressive entrance hall with cloakroom and storage closets. There is a wonderful amount of light and energy as you can see directly through to the garden and an internal window has been positioned to extract additional natural light from the main reception room.
Oak effect flooring has been laid seamlessly throughout and leads to the striking dark framed glazed doors which open into the main living area.
To the left, the kitchen has been beautifully designed making the most of the garden views. Dark units complement the polished concrete work surfaces and there is a breakfast bar peninsula. The cooking area is enhanced by a walk-in pantry and a separate utility room.
Although the space is open plan, there is clear division for cooking, dining and relaxing. A splendid Portland stone fireplace sits central to the room, whilst the bi-fold and patio doors can be opened out allowing the inside to connect directly with the garden. The downstairs space offers an additional reception room at the front of the property, currently used as a study but could equally become a playroom or a snug.
The stairs rise to the first floor where you will find a large galleried landing which leads to four generously proportioned double bedrooms, three of which have fitted wardrobes. There are two separate bathrooms, one of which has a walk-in shower whilst the other offers an elegant bath suite finished with Moroccan glazed tiles.
The current owner has made many improvements, including a full rewire, new combination boiler and modern plumbing, ensuring excellent energy efficiency throughout.
A driveway provides parking for several cars and leads to the detached double garage, a well-manicured front garden with young trees sits directly in front of the main entrance which overlooks the peaceful close.
To the rear of the property the southerly facing garden is accessed via the patio and bi-fold doors, which step out onto a newly laid porcelain patio. The garden has established shrubs and small trees which provide delicate shade and privacy to the outside space.
