THE PROPERTY

A spacious and versatile family home well located in this rural village and set back from the street in its large gardens. Entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, family room/office, study/bedroom 5 and shower/cloakroom. First floor master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and roof terrace, three further bedrooms and a family bath/shower room. Long private gated driveway, double garage and large gardens. Built around 30 years ago by local builder Ellis Farrington for himself, the current owners have lived here since 1990 having updated and improved the property to what is now a very comfortable family home. The accommodation, which benefits from Everest double glazing, extends to around 2290 sq ft and is well arranged to afford a high degree of versatility with ground floor shower/cloakroom providing scope for the use of either the study, to the front of the property or the large family room/office to the side as a ground floor bedroom/s. The front door gives access from the storm porch to the main reception hallway, off which the principal reception rooms lead, along with the stairs to first floor. The dining room, along with the hall, is well proportioned, with Karndean flooring, allowing for a traditional dining suite and has a hatch from the kitchen and sliding patio door to the rear garden. The sitting room benefits from windows to the front and rear elevations with a gas fired stove set into the fireplace. The superb kitchen/breakfast room has French doors out to the rear terrace and is fitted with base and eye level units, rolled top work surfaces, electric hob and 11/2 bowl single drainer sink with tiled splash backs. There are also integrated appliances including double oven, dishwasher, larder fridge and a standalone Rayburn oil fired range cooker with extractor fan above and Karndean flooring. There is access through to the exceptionally functionable utility/boiler room with work surface, sink, cupboards and modern oil-fired Grant condensing boiler. There is a side hall with doors to the front and rear and to the family room/office which has been converted from the former garage. There is also a versatile study/bedroom and shower/cloakroom. On the first floor there are four family bedrooms and a family bathroom with tiled floor and 1/2 tiled walls, good walk-in shower, corner bath, low flush wc, pedestal wash hand basin and radiator towel rail. The master bedroom which has recently been recarpeted, also benefits from an en-suite bathroom with Karndean flooring, and has sliding patio doors leading out to the large roof terrace that overlooks the back garden. OUTSIDE There is gated access to a long graveled sweeping drive that leads to the parking area and double garage in front of the house. The front and rear gardens, which benefit from a high degree of privacy from the neighbouring properties, are mainly laid to lawn with a good selection of mature trees and shrubs. There is also an aluminum framed green house and fruit trees. A terrace provides an entertaining area to the rear ideal for alfresco dining and beyond the lawn there is a screened area which previously screened the childrens play area and now affords good space for kitchen garden with raised vegetable beds.
