Completing the ground floor is a handy shower room with a shower enclosure and a WC-suite.
Located on the first floor are three of the four bedrooms. Extended by a canted bay window, the elegantly-proportioned master bedroom enjoys a wall of full-height, built-in storage, whilst the second bedroom is accompanied by its own en-suite shower room. A three-piece family bathroom is appointed in a traditional style. The remaining sleeping area is found on the second floor, displaying impressive dimensions and accompanied by generous eaves storage and a four-piece, en-suite bathroom.
Gas central heating (powered by a Worcester Bosch boiler) and double glazing are found throughout.
The impressive family home sits within enclosed private gardens.
