Why buy this home?

As you enter this home you will be pleased to see the current owners have made fantastic modifications to their downstairs living space. They have extended their home by converting the previous double garage to create the enviable kitchen diner and family room/snug, also adding a study and new double garage to the front aspect. The owners have designed this home with their young children in mind. Karndean flooring flows throughout the downstairs which makes it easy to clean especially when you come in from those long walks and can wipe any accidental spills.

Off the hallway is the study, big enough for two desks so both of you can work from home. The study also provides a space to hang up your coats and put your shoes away. There is also access to the double garage from inside the house.

The living room is at the back of the house with bi-fold doors opening onto the garden, making it bright and airy. This is a place where you can cosy up on the sofa and watch a movie with the family. Next is the dining room, perfect if you want that intimate setting for dinner or Sunday lunch.

The main attraction of this home is without a doubt the spacious open-plan kitchen, with vaulted ceiling, dining and family area which is perfect for families. This showpiece room is ideal for hosting large family gatherings or entertaining friends. The owners are using the family area as a snug/play area for their kids. It’s a great space to watch over the kids while you're cooking. The kitchen diner is fully integrated with white gloss units making it feel premium and modern. Storage is not an issue as there is plenty, it flows with the worktop space as it has been well-planned out. The kitchen is equipped with a wide range of matching AEG appliances, including two single-eye-level ovens, an induction hob, and an extractor fan. The focal point is the impressive feature island, which also has lots of storage, the all-important wine cooler, and a pop-up power socket. On the opposite side, there is space for four stools, making it a perfect place for your morning coffee or a quick bite to eat. Other integrated AEG appliances include a full-height fridge and freezer, and dishwasher. Three electric Velux windows add even more light, and bi-fold doors finish this entertaining space by bringing the outside in.

A generous utility room leads off the kitchen with space for a washing machine and a dryer, as well as additional wall units meaning that the laundry and cleaning products can be kept out of sight. Lastly, there is a downstairs cloakroom.

A large rear garden runs the full width of the house. Towards the back of the garden is the bar and patio area which is a real sun trap in the summer and provides a perfect seating area for those summer BBQs with friends or family. It is enclosed by raised beds and a low wall on one side. Just in front of the raised beds is artificial grass and on the other side there is a larger section of lawn, perfect for those larger garden toys like a trampoline or a football goal. There are steps to a raised decking area where there is a kid's summer house. There is also a patio that encompasses the edge of the house, so plenty of additional space to create other seating areas within the garden if desired.

Upstairs are four bedrooms, the master bedroom is at the back of the house, big enough for a super-kingsize bed, bedside tables, and floor to ceiling wardrobes. There is also an ensuite which is partially tiled and has a double shower. Bedroom two is a double, and bedroom three is a large single. Bedroom four is also a single room and is currently being used as a dressing room. All bedrooms are served by the family bathroom, which has a double shower over a bath, and large double basin atop a vanity unit.

There is a double garage attached to the house and a block paved driveway with enough space to park four cars.
