THE PROPERTY This superb family home dates back to about 1951 when it was built by the Health Service for the District Nurse. It was subsequently extended in the late 1980's and comprehensively renovated by the current owners. From the original solid oak front door with ''crittall' windows to either side access is gained to the entrance hall, with stairs leading to the first floor, a coat hanging cupboard and doors to the study/snug and sitting room. The sitting room features windows to three elevations, exposed beech wood parquet flooring and a brick surround fireplace with inset ''Morso' log burning stove. The kitchen/dining room is beautifully presented and benefits further from outstanding views to the side and rear through double glazed patio doors and windows. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of base and eye level units, solid beech wood block work surfaces with inset stainless steel sink and an integrated Bosh dishwasher and Smeg larder fridge. The tiled floor runs through to the dining area which also has an appealing bressumer beamed fireplace with inset ''Clearview' log burning stove. The utility room features further base and eye level units, space and plumbing for automatic appliances and doors to the garden and cloakroom. The rear hall, which leads into the house from the roofed side passage via a half glazed rear door gives access to the kitchen/dining room and the study/snug which, with a window to the front has more beech wood parquet flooring and book shelving built to one wall. On the first floor the master bedroom features a spacious en-suite shower room and also benefits from built-in wardrobe cupboards and enjoys far reaching views to the south. There are three further bedrooms served by a family bathroom, with modern roll top claw foot bath with hand shower attachment, pedestal hand wash basin and low flush wc. The annex/studio, that can be accessed under cover from the house across the side passage, is located on the first floor above the detached double garage and affords superb additional accommodation as either a fifth bedroom, due to its en-suite shower room or as a useful hobby room/work from home office. The house and annex/studio both benefit, in the main, from double glazed windows and oil fired central heating. OUTSIDE Double gates to the front give access to the brick edged graveled drive which leads to the double garage, which has an up and over door to the front and separate boiler room and workshop to the rear. The house sits fairly centrally within its gardens which are beautifully established with lawns, flowerbeds and borders and are fully fence enclosed.
