Welcome inside the property, let’s take you on the tour.

Firstly, the moment you step through the front door into the hallway you will be amazed at the space, light and depth of this home, which gives you a good insight to the size of the house that you are about to view.

The entrance hallway is grand, boasting a central feature staircase which rises to the split-level landing.

A key consideration I am sure when looking to purchase a property of this value, is the large open plan kitchen/breakfast/dining space. This home certainly delivers, working really well for the modern family, and a room that you will probably spend most of your day time whilst at home especially as the space boasts the beautiful view of the landscaped garden and with an abundance of windows sure is lovely and bright.

First and foremost, those opulent porcelain floor tiles continue through from the hallway which lead you in. Your first impression is that of space, especially with the extended dining section to the rear. You will find the room is naturally sectioned into two areas. Firstly, the kitchen offers a good compliment of beech door units with recently re-fitted quartz work-surfaces which provide plenty of working space with numerous power points around for small appliances.

It get's even better.. the main event is the snooker table which is included in the sale, providing a great entertainment evening for friends, or for the kids to play, as well as the room having the ideal spot for a wall-mounted television and dartboard and just a chill out space for the kids, okay, or even the big kids really.

We really like the setting of this property, being in such a quiet spot in the village, again, when looking for a property of this calibre, then you’ll probably be considering not just a private location for the house, but allso a well-considered garden. You will not be disappointed.

The garden is super private and has been carefully and thoughtfully landscaped to work for a family, the quiet sunny moments and entertaining.

Another super feature to the outdoor space is this rather grand summer house. A popular traditional-style construction, solidly built, enjoying a decking area under cover to sit and relax whilst enjoying the garden view, and perhaps a nice bottle of wine in a relaxing chair with a snug blanket at night. Or heading inside to stay warm via the sliding doors leading into the sitting area.
