Ground floor
On entering the property, you immediately get a sense for the quality throughout. The flooring on the ground floor (with the exception of the living room) is natural slate with underfloor heating, and within the entrance hall there are bespoke under-stairs storage cupboards in Oak.

The stunning modern kitchen, diner and family room have been created using only the finest materials, including; NEXT 125 kitchen units with feature Walnut cabinets to one wall, Corian counter tops, roller shutter cabinet with glass shelving and power points, and pull out larder unit. The central island contains a drawer unit, hidden cupboard and Corian counters, providing breakfast bar seating for four people. The triple glazed three leaf aluminium bi-fold doors in anthracite with electric remote-controlled internal blinds provide a level threshold to the rear garden and patio area of the same material. Additional features include;

From the kitchen, you can enter the utility room which provides external access to the side of the property, downstairs cloakroom and larder, all of which benefit from the same high-quality finish as the main kitchen. The room has again been designed to the highest quality, benefitting from Schuller units which creates a clever but subtle change to the kitchen. The attention to detail is evident throughout, from the remote-controlled Velux roof lights, solid hardwood external door, hidden recycling drawer, to the feature stainless sink. Further benefits include;
. Dual temperature MILE wine cooler.
. Fitted space for Washing machine / tumble drier.
. Filtered water tap.
. LED wall lights.
. Stainless Steel Valet Hooks.

Forming part of the utility room, the purpose-built larder with Oak shelving provides excellent storage space for any size family. The room is fully insulated to maintain a cool temperature all year round and is again built to the highest standard.

Located off the hallway, the study is well designed with Oak shelving, LED down lighters, Notice board and BT socket.

The generous lounge offers a dual aspect to the front and rear of the property, with French doors to the garden and wiring for Dolby Surround 7.1.

First floor
On the first floor are four double bedrooms with en-suite shower room to bedroom 2, as well as the family bathroom.

Both the family bathroom and en-suite shower room consist of high-quality Hans Grohe fittings, wall mounted WC with integral cistern, vanity unit and sink. The tiled floors benefit from underfloor heating, and there are heated towel rails. Additional features to the family bathroom include bath with mixer shower, built-in storage and LED colour selectable feature lighting.

Second floor
The whole of the second floor comprises the very spacious master suite with wet-room and walk-in wardrobe. There is also additional eaves storage.

The master en-suite has limestone tiling throughout, again with underfloor heating, and a large shower area with Hans Grohe shower mixer and shower head and a fixed shower screen with an anti-limescale coating. The WC is wall hung with an integral cistern, the twin drawer vanity unit includes two basins with Hans Grohe mixer taps and fittings. There is also a heated towel rail, shower wall basket and LED down lighters.

The exterior render of the house had been fully painted in 2019 with a 3mm textured paint that is resistant to algae growth.

The double garage has a chemical resistant epoxy aggregate floor, boarded loft space for storage, power, alarm and an RSJ in the roof to act as a hoist. Access is also available directly from the rear garden.

The driveway is large enough for at least 4 large vehicles. A carport to the rear of the driveway was constructed in mid-2019 and has been clad in Cedar (currently housing a 7.5m long x 3.1m tall motorhome and caravan). There are also two hook-up sockets. The area within the carport is protected by full-width lockable composite panelled Bi-Fold gates, which were installed in July 2020.

The front and rear gardens are both mainly laid to lawn with irrigation pipework for planting. The rear garden also benefits from a natural slate patio area with level access to the kitchen through the bi-fold doors, additional Tegula paving and PIR operated Aluminium LED wall lights. A fully insulated and lockable storeroom with power, provides further additional storage.

A message from the owners
We have enjoyed living at this property from new, for 16 years. Both our sons have grown up and attended the local schools which we have found to be excellent. The location is very quiet and safe for the children, and within easy reach of local amenities and the main road north (A419 to M5), and east or west (M4). Over the years we have developed the property and enjoyed selecting high quality fixtures and fittings and improving the layout. Close neighbours are friendly, supportive, and everyone has enjoyed the occasional street party together to celebrate special occasions. All of the work we have done in the house is to a high standard and was done with a view that we would be staying here for years to come. Unfortunately, a change in family circumstances means that now is the time to move on.
