Occupying a generous corner plot, the house is approached by a sweeping gravel drive, bordered by manicured hedges for added privacy. On entering the house, you step into an entrance vestibule, leading into a hall, boasting attractive tessellated encaustic tiled flooring and benefiting from built-in storage and a convenient WC. To the front of the house is a generously-proportioned sitting room lit by a south-facing bay window.

Adjacent to the sitting room is a formal dining room, enjoying a leafy garden outlook and boasting natural wood flooring and a homely multi-fuel stove. From here, the accommodation flows seamlessly through to a bright triple-aspect kitchen, incorporating a further dining area and offering a fabulous social hub for all the family. Fitted with an array of attractive county-style cream cabinets, complemented by rustic natural wood finishings and excellent worktop space, the kitchen also features an integrated eye-level double-oven and electric hob and a freestanding dishwasher.
