Why buy this home?
This four double bedroom detached home has served the current owners for the last 22 years. As soon as you walk into the entrance hall you immediately feel a sense of warmth and space which shows throughout the rest of the house.
One of the main reasons why the owners bought this home was for the open plan lounge/dining room which is dual aspect with its light coming in from the window at the front of the house and double doors at the back of the house. Due to its shape, it is easy to have a large sofa and a couple of armchairs, and a coffee table making it a great family space. There is also a gas fire with a stone surround. There is a natural separation of the dining area, furnished with a dining table that can seat up to eight people and a sideboard; it’s a perfect place to hold a dinner party with friends. Opposite is the generous size study where there's space for multiple people to work from home!
The kitchen can be accessed via the hallway and dining room. It is fully integrated and has plenty of storage and worktop space. The island is the main focal point and has a five ring gas hob range cooker, perfect for those that love cooking! Integrated appliances include a dishwasher and fridge freezer. Off the kitchen there is a W/C, utility room with an integrated washing machine, and provides access to the double garage.
At the back of the house is the family room. The owners are using it as an additional dining room when the family comes together. However, this is the perfect place to relax, read a book and admire the garden. The double doors open out onto the decking area making it a great entertaining space. Imagine those summer evening BBQ’s!
The garden is laid with grass and has a woodland area, established trees which are well maintained and provide privacy as you're not overlooked. There is a decking area that is big enough for your garden furniture and also has room for a hot tub. Finally, there’s rear access to the front garden and access to the garage.
Upstairs has four double bedrooms. The master bedroom is at the back of the house overlooking the garden and mature trees. It is big enough for a king-size bed, bedside tables, and wardrobes. No master bedroom is complete without an ensuite and this one is fully tiled with Travertine tiles. The shower is a double with a glass screen and can also be preset to the preferred temperature.
Bedroom two and three are similar in size and share a jack-and-jill bathroom, ideal for teenagers who crave their own privacy and space. Bedroom four is a guest room and is serviced by the main bathroom. The main bathroom is fully tiled and has a shower over the P-shaped bath.
The double garage is attached to the house and there is parking for two cars in front.
