Entering through a light filled and spacious reception hall, the well thought out, high-quality finish of this house immediately becomes apparent. Downstairs the four main living spaces all have double doors opening out onto the garden and showcase the uninterrupted views perfectly. The generous duel aspect kitchen and breakfast room is the true hub of this home. With matching fitted wall and base units, integrated appliances, a central cooking island and a gas Rayburn, it provides a welcoming space to socialise as a family and enjoy the everchanging landscape. Leading off from the kitchen is a traditional boot room with door to the front of the property and a separate, fully fitted utility room with sink and space for appliances. The centrally located sitting room has generous sliding doors, perfect for feeling the garden breeze in warmer months or enjoying wintery scenes in front of the toasty log burner. The dining room offers a versatile space for formal dining, working from home or even a second sitting room. The adjacent study is equally as flexible, they both provide access through to a wonderful triple aspect garden room, with exposed beams, Velux window and two sets of french doors opening onto a paved garden terrace. A modern shower room completes the ground floor.
The upstairs is flooded with natural light from its clever use of dormer and Velux windows. An impressive sweeping landing provides access to the five bedrooms, family bathroom and provides two deep built in storage cupboards. The first two double bedrooms are mirror images of each other. They are both dual aspect and identical in size but differ on the view - one overlooks the pretty front garden and the other has a countryside outlook. The next two bedrooms are of good size and their picture windows frame the landscape perfectly. The dual aspect master bedroom overlooks the same wonderful surrounds as the others, it has built in wardrobes and a modern ensuite shower room. The first floor is completed with a generous family bathroom.
Outside the house is set back from the lane in a fully enclosed plot surrounded by mature hedge borders. The gravelled front drive leads to a handsome double garage and there is parking for multiple cars in front of it, all tucked away from view of the main house. The landscaped front garden echoes in birdsong from the mature trees in this calm residential neighbourhood. The front garden is thoroughly enjoyed by its current owners, having low drystone walls, raised lawns, colourful flowerbeds and a greenhouse, it is more than just a gateway to the home. The double garage has potential for a multitude of future uses, and benefits from substantial mezzanine storage above. An attractive wall runs between the garage and the house, securely separating the front and rear gardens but also providing gated access.
The rear garden is centred around the breath-taking panoramic views of open countryside and surrounding wildlife. It is mainly laid to lawn with its patio terraces and seating areas thoughtfully placed to soak in the surrounds. There are beautifully tended flowerbeds and a modern water feature providing extra ambiance to an already perfect setting.
