Passing through the front gate, twin brick paver paths lead across the lawn of a garden with packed borders of mature trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials. Steps lead down to the front door, crossing a paved patio, sheltered by a terracing stone retaining wall.
Stepping through the front door leads into a large Entry Hall with a wall of book shelves, light tiled flooring and a vaulted timber beamed ceiling. To the left an Oak latch door leads into the Sitting Room.
The spacious Sitting Room features a stone fireplace with gas coal-effect fire beneath a wood mantel. This lovely room enjoys triple aspect from the wooden frame windows, with deep cill boards extending beneath to provide full shelving. As through out the home, exposed timber beams add interest and warmth.
An Oak door leads directly into the Kitchen/Diner. Another spacious room, with tile floor, it is fully-fitted in warm-hued, wood wall and base units and has integrated under-counter fridge, stainless steel sink and a half, ceramic hob and oven. There are also a washer, dryer and dishwasher. While an under-stairs large recess provides extensive storage for household necessaries but would also make a great Pantry. There is ample room for a large family dining table from where, through the twin windows, to look out over the rear gardens.
Off the Entry Hall also lies a Downstairs WC, with basin and storage unit.
At the top of the stairs is a split landing, to the left lies two Double Bedrooms. To the front of the house the first Bedroom has both a side window and a front Velux. A good sized room with lovely exposed beams and twin double wardrobe with cupboards above.
Opposite the second Bedroom also has side window and Velux, additionally this room offers a beamed recess which could provide an ideal wardrobe or as the room is currently used as a Home Office offers more generalised storage.
On the other wing, lies the third equally-sized Double Bedroom with twin double wardrobe and Velux. While opposite lies the good-sized Family Bathroom with full bath, wall-mounted Mira shower with glass screen, WC and Basin.
Off the Landing with additional bookcases, is the Airing Cupboard housing the Worcester Combi boiler while above is the loft hatch to access the roof storage.Outside
Ample parking sits before the fenced front garden with outside lighting and tap, while further along on the private driveway is period-style garaging, offering not only a dedicated Carport but an attached and imminently practical secure store. To the side of the home under cover the archway allows direct access to the rear gardens, again offering open flat lawn with mature borders. The rear garden benefits from screening to provide private and secluded spots from which to enjoy outdoor dining and barbecuing with the picturesque church as a backdrop.Practicalities
