The Property

Thought to date from the mid 1800's, this charming property sits in a desirable location about half a mile from the town centre. In an elevated position with views, this much loved family home has been in the same ownership since 1979 and has been extended and much improved over the years. The gardens wrap around three sides, and are afforded privacy by high hedging, further complemented by a large garage, parking space and an insulated home office. The majority of the windows are aluminium powder coated and double glazed, with wooden double glazed units in the more recent utility room extension. The house faces south, with a number of the rooms enjoying a dual aspect, making the accommodation light and airy throughout.

The Accommodation

The front door leads into a hall with the staircase off and a cloakroom under. On the right is the sitting room with a brick open fireplace, while opposite is the dining room with built-in cupboards. Both formal reception rooms have south facing mullion windows with window seats. Beyond the dining room is the kitchen with a good range of units, including the electric oven, gas hob and extractor, plus an integrated dishwasher. The kitchen opens into the adjacent breakfast/family room, which has double doors into the garden. Leading off is a large utility/boot room room plus a side porch, essentially the main entrance by virtue of where the garage and parking are located. The first floor landing has a storage cupboard, a shelved recess and access to the loft with a ladder and light. Bedroom one has an en suite shower, while bedroom two has built-in wardrobes, a shelved linen cupboard and window seat. The family bathroom has a separate shower and half panelled walls. At the rear is a further double bedroom and a decent single.

Outside

Mature laurel hedging screens the road with stone boundary walls. There are two sets of steps, one to the front door and a second to the right of the garage leading to the side porch. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with several mature trees, well stocked borders and an area of wildlife garden. Close to the house is the insulated studio with power, light and a phone connection, ideal for those looking to work from home. Adjacent is a small shed and log store. To the far side is a large vegetable garden, greenhouse and compost bins, with a number of paved seating areas dotted around the gardens.
