DESCRIPTION *Guide Price £700,000-£725,000*
This is a stunning family home that has been much improved by the current owners and is perfect for anyone to move straight into and enjoy living in a much sought after village. The finish is excellent throughout, but it is the single storey extension to the rear which is the stand out feature. Originally built in the late 80’s, we feel as though this home now works for those that want really good entertaining space. As you walk through the front door you’ll notice the wood style floor that flows throughout the ground floor. The kitchen breakfast room provides ample work surface prep space, an induction hob, built in ovens and plenty of storage and clever use of corner storage. The breakfast bar creates a useful seating area. The former kitchen is now a utility room, with storage and integrated appliances. The cloakroom has a cupboard which is home to the boiler and has space for the tumble dryer. Walk into the sitting room and your eyes are drawn immediately to the extension and the bi folds which open straight onto the terrace. Making the most of this favoured southerly aspect, this is a great spot for a large family dining table, whilst the lantern skylight adds that quality finish. In the sitting room there is plenty of space for sofas and another key feature is the open fireplace – perfect for those winter nights.
On the first floor, all of the bedrooms are a good size. The main bedroom has two windows that overlook the front, with a double door wardrobe and access into the en-suite – beautifully finished and continuing that slick and modern feel throughout the home. The main bathroom has the added benefit of an L-shape bath for further space, whilst bedrooms two and three are located at the rear and look out over the beautiful garden. Bedroom two has built in storage, whilst we think bedroom three is a good size at 11’1 x 7’4. Outside, the garden is a key aspect of this home and during the summer months really extends the entertaining space. The terrace provides ample space for table and chairs and a BBQ, with a side path that takes you to the front of the house. The lawn area is a great space, with a garden shed located at the bottom of the garden.
The property tenure is Freehold and the council tax band is E.
