Why buy this home?
This beautiful stone built detached home is set within a private cul-de-sac of just 3 properties, set back behind a tree lined drive, it offers a wonderful private setting for your next family home.
As you first step into the property you are welcomed by a large central, entrance hall which offers plenty of space to meet and greet guests. This would also be the ideal space to host a huge Christmas tree come December! One of the real selling points to this home is the layout. When built back in 2011 the builders really considered the design of this home and downstairs all the main rooms lead off this entrance hall, meaning it's perfectly set up for family life.
To the left is the impressive living room with a wonderful log burning stove with herringbone brickwork surround making it a real focus of the room. There are 2 large windows, meaning the room has an abundance of natural light flowing in, and this room also has a side door leading out into the garden. Back through the hall and into the 2nd reception room, currently used by the owners as a beauty room but could easily be used as a home office, play room or even space for a home gym. There is a downstairs WC with a small window. Then through into the spacious open plan kitchen living space. This room used to be a separate kitchen and a more formal dining room but the owners decided to open up the two rooms and have one large space instead, now measuring at over 10m x 5m. It can easily host an 8 seater table and chairs as well as having a separate seating area for sofas too. Within the kitchen itself, there are traditional style wooden units with dark granite worktops. It has space for an American-style fridge/freezer, range cooker and has an integrated dishwasher. 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. There is a boot room that sits in between the utility room and the double garage; it has the back door leading into the garden and is the ideal place to clean any muddy footwear after a long walk in the surrounding countryside.
A large rear garden wraps around the back and to the side of the property. Most of the garden is laid to lawn, making it easy to maintain all year round. There is a decking area which is a real sun trap in the summer and is the perfect seating area for those family summer BBQ's. As well as the decking area there is a patio that encompasses the edge of the house, so plenty of additional space to create other seating areas within the garden if desired.
All of the bedrooms are doubles and are accessed from a generous central landing. The spacious master bedroom has built-in wardrobes and a 4 piece ensuite, which is half height tiled and has that all-important window. The second bedroom is also of a good size with a further ensuite shower room. Bedroom three is at the front of the house and has triple built in wardrobes. Bedrooms four and five are also comfortable double rooms. A 4 piece family bathroom with a roll top bath and separate shower cubicle completes the upstairs accommodation.
There is an attached double garage with parking for 4 cars.
