A fine four bedroom detached, modern house built in the Georgian style but with all the latest conveniences, and with the benefit of over two years of the new build warranty remaining. Constructed in 2013 and finished to a high standard, this handsome property built of brick elevations under a slate tiled roof is set over two floors and offers light, well laid out accommodation, which is beautifully presented. The front door, with timber canopy over, opens into the entrance hallway with access to the downstairs rooms, all with underfloor heating. The charming front aspect, generous sized sitting room has a stone fireplace with inset wood burning stove providing a central focal point and ensuring a cosy atmosphere. Double, part glazed doors open to the sunroom/dining area. Adjacent is the front aspect study, beyond which is the cloakroom. Following on is the utility room with side door to the parking area. Storage is provided by wall units, one of which houses the Glow-worm gas boiler. Beneath are base units with worktop over and inset stainless steel sink. There is space and connection for a tumble dryer and a washing machine. The impressive and generous sized open plan kitchen/dining/sunroom is to the rear of the house and has two sets of French doors opening to the enclosed rear garden with private patio, ideal for outside entertaining. The polished ceramic tiled floor gives a sleek finish and complements the wall and base units under a quartz worktop. There are integrated appliances which include a Baumatic dishwasher and fridge/freezer, a Neff five ring gas hob with extractor over and a Neff eye level, double oven. Under the rear window is an inset stainless-steel sink with mixer tap over, where views of the garden can be enjoyed whilst washing up. A door gives access to ample understairs storage. Windows along the whole of the western side of the sunroom/dining area provide the ideal place to position a sofa from which to enjoy views of the garden and evening sun. There is also ample space for a dining table and chairs. From the hallway, stairs rise to the upstairs landing with airing cupboard and loft hatch. There are four good size bedrooms, three of which have fitted recessed wardrobes and two have en suite shower rooms. There is also a family bathroom. The front of the house is adorned by a lilac wisteria, below which is a good selection of mature shrubs and grasses bounded by a low brick wall. To the rear is a small, but pretty, landscaped cottage style garden with timber edged, raised borders and beds, containing a variety of plants and shrubs including delphiniums, foxgloves and penstemons providing year-round colour and interest. Trees include a crimson glory acer and a betula which provide form and shade. To the centre is a small herb garden, edged by gravelled pathways. Scented climbers including honeysuckle and various coloured austin roses adorn the garden fence and wall. To the rear boundary is a yew hedge providing privacy. Immediately abutting the rear of the house is an area of paving perfect for alfresco dining. A timber side gate gives access to the twin garages with up and over doors, power and light, plus an ample parking area secured with attractive iroko timber double gates. There is outside lighting and a tap. All in all, this is a wonderful and immaculate house in a popular and very convenient location.
