Our clients have been in residence for almost 40 years and having raised their children and spent many a happy moment at the property, now children having flown the nest, the time has come for the baton to be passed to a new occupier who can enjoy the home as much as they have done during their time here.
It should be noted that the property is being brought to market with NO ONWARD CHAIN and over the years the property has undergone transformations and modifications, with extensions to the rear and both sides of the home, in doing so it has created versatile living accommodation.
To the ground floor, in total there are four reception areas to the home, with the principle room being the lounge, benefitting from an extension to the rear, with French doors which welcomes in the beautiful rear garden into the home. There is a formal dining room to the front of the property but this could easily be used as a sitting room if desired and features wood block parquet flooring, itself flowing through from the reception hall to the home, where there is a spindled staircase off to first floor accommodation; downstairs cloakroom/WC; study/family room which features a range of office furniture including fitted computer desk area and glass display cabinets. The standout room to the ground floor is the open plan living/dining/kitchen, being the epitome of modern living, with the kitchen featuring an extensive range of fitted units with integrated appliances with peninsular units bisecting the kitchen area from the dining area itself. This flows through to the conservatory at the rear which welcomes in the rear garden to the home. There is a separate utility room where there are water facilities in addition to a central heating boiler.
To the first floor, there are four bedrooms with the master bedroom benefitting from a dressing room and en-suite shower room. It should be noted that in the guest bedroom there is a loft access point with a pull-down ladder to a predominately boarded loft area featuring skylight window and storage compartment. Completing the living accommodation, is a family bathroom which features a four piece white suite with separate shower to bath.
Externally, the property benefits from generous outside space to both the front and rear, with the property being approached via a private gated block paved and golden gravelled driveway which leads to the side of the property where there is a further block paved section in front of the detached double length garage. The front is well enclosed by a combination of low brick wall with decorative iron railing and timber fencing.
The rear garden is a lovely feature of the home and over the years it has enjoyed many a party, (and game of cricket!) and features a shaped block paved edged paved patio terrace with golden gravelled sections and a stepping stone pathway which leads to a designated washing line area. There is a rockery style garden with stocked borders flanking the lawned garden which itself is of a good-size leading to the foot of the garden where there is a further paved terrace and outbuilding, which our clients use a hobby room currently but could easily be used as a home office or studio if desired. The garden is well enclosed by hedging and features outside lighting, water tap and Tudor effect apex to the rear elevation.
