PROPERTY IN BRIEF
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a spacious four bedroom detached family home located in a desirable and peaceful cul-de-sac position on the popular Kemps Green Estate. This development is within easy walking distance to the local schools, village centre, Berkswell Train Station and to the local countryside for walks. The cul-de-sac is lovely and quiet having the benefit of woodland space which provides a private outlook from the front of the property and an adventurous heaven for the children to play with friends.
The extended ground floor accommodation is spacious, offering a comfortable living room with feature fireplace and bay window. A door to rear opens into the rear dining room and onwards into the conservatory via the folding doors. The kitchen has been extended to provide a good workable kitchen with breakfast bar and dining space, enjoying French doors leading out into the patio and south-facing garden. There is a separate utility also with access into the garden as well as the ground floor providing a downstairs cloakroom and useful under-stairs storage.
Upstairs, the property benefits from four good sized bedrooms with the main bedroom having the benefit of a shower arrangement and views of the woodland.

Outside, the property boasts a generous driveway and fore-garden to the front, and a landscaped and private south-facing rear garden providing a generous patio, large lawn area and beautifully landscaped planting areas.
This spacious family property is located in a much sought-after and private cul-de-sac on the popular Kemps Green Estate. Set towards the end of the cul-de-sac enjoying a generous driveway and fore-garden as well as tranquil views into the woodland located opposite to the house. There's access into the garage, front door and access along the side of the property to the garden.
The ground floor provides generous living accommodation which may not appear evident from the front aspect. Especially benefitting from an extension providing a larger kitchen/breakfast/diner, separate dining area and spacious conservatory makes this deceptively spacious home work really well for the modern family.
As soon as you step inside the property you will appreciate the space and depth this home offers. The hallway gives access to the living room, extended kitchen, cloakroom and benefiting from handy under-stairs storage for coats and shoes. Furthermore, there is a central heating radiator, a porch area-perfect for kicking off your shoes and placing the umbrella, and stairs rising to the bedrooms and bathroom.

The dining room is located towards the rear of the house with access from both the living room and the extended kitchen.

We particularly love the large hardwood French-style doors which open out into the conservatory, allowing a wonderful flow around the ground floor, perfect for when entertaining or family time at Christmas. The dining room has a large central heating radiator as well as a wall lighting.
The extended kitchen/diner is a great space and a key area where you are likely to spend a fair proportion of your time. The kitchen provides a generous number of wall and base units with contrasting surfaces having a Smeg single oven and grill, a Smeg four-ring gas hob over, splash-back and extractor hood. There is also an integrated fridge and a 1 and a 1/2 sink and drainer with a double glazed window to the side elevation and provisions for your dishwasher. The breakfast bar is a great asset, perfect for placing a couple of barstools to sit with your laptop or enjoying a conversation with the cook. The dining area is a great space, lovely and bright enjoying those French patio doors opening out to the south-facing garden and offering good floor space for a family sized dining table.

The conservatory has the benefit of a patio door leading out to the garden as well as a large central heating radiator which makes this the all-year-round room. Another great feature is the large doors which open in to the dining room.
