The part glazed entrance door opens into a welcoming hallway with useful storage. The impressive open plan lounge/dining kitchen benefits from windows on three sides ensuring lovely outlooks whilst the French doors to the back of the lounge allow direct access to the gardens. The lounge features a vaulted style ceiling with additional velux windows allowing plenty of natural light whilst a lovely focal point is provided by the recessed multi fuel stove with embedded oak mantle over. The dining kitchen, again with outlooks over the gardens, is fitted with a range of contemporary wooden wall and base units with ample worktop space and tiled splash backs. The room allows for a dining table and chairs making this a lovely sociable space. Leading off the kitchen is the utility room which provides a useful facility with space for additional kitchen appliances and with a rear door leading to the garden grounds. Usefully, two of the bedrooms are located on the ground floor, both nicely proportioned double rooms with pleasant outlooks and the benefit of built in storage. The bathroom which is freshly presented and tiled to dado height has the advantage of a four piece suite incorporating a white WC, pedestal sink, panelled bath and separate corner shower cubicle.
The carpeted staircase with spindled banister leads to a particular spacious and versatile seating area; this space is adaptable and could lend itself to different uses depending on requirements but provides plenty of space to accommodate sofas as well as dining table if a more formal dining area is required. The velux windows ensure good light and fabulous views. The master bedroom suite incorporates a particularly well proportioned double bedroom with excellent built in storage and large windows ensuring the most of the outlook in addition to a stylish en-suite shower room complete with large tiled, corner shower cubicle.
The decked sun terrace to the rear of the property is well positioned and designed to make the most of the gardens and views to the south, the ideal spot for summer dining. The gardens themselves are well stocked and nicely established with a selection of trees and shrubs which ensure colour and interest throughout the year. The low level hedge to the foot of the garden preserves the spectacular views.
