The spacious and welcoming hallway creates an outstanding first impression. Double doors open onto the open-plan family room/dining room which is incredibly light courtesy of extensive windows and bifold doors leading to the terrace and garden beyond. There is plenty of space for a large dining table and chairs, while the sitting area ensures the whole room sociable in design. 
Built-in cupboards along the length of the room give an excellent amount of storage. The kitchen/breakfast room lies alongside with sliding doors opening onto the terrace and floor to ceiling windows allowing plenty of natural light.

Integrated appliances include oven, grill, induction hob, extractor, dishwasher and wine cooler with space for a full height fridge/freezer. Stylish folding doors lead from the family area through to the double aspect, sitting room. Despite being a generous size this room has a cosy feel to it with a log burner attractively inset within a feature fireplace. Bifold doors open onto the terrace. The smart study lies to the front of the house with two windows overlooking the front garden and driveway, allowing a good deal of natural light. The downstairs cloakroom, accessed from the hallway, completes the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor there are five well-proportioned bedrooms which radiate from the light-filled landing. The principal bedroom is an excellent size stretching the full depth of the house. It has the advantage of contemporary built-in storage and a large, modern en-suite shower room. Three of the four further bedrooms also benefit from integrated storage, sharing the stylish and elegant family bathroom with bath and shower over.

Outside, the wide frontage provides ample offroad parking in front of the house and garage, with established hedging giving a good degree of privacy. The garage itself is a good size with space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer to the rear. A gate provides access at the side of the house to the south-east facing rear garden, which is a very impressive feature of this property. The large, paved terrace lies directly behind the house with both light and power, creating an ideal space for outside entertaining. A step leads down to the substantial lawned area with mature shrub and tree borders. 

The garden is well-maintained and private, a perfect place for the whole family to enjoy. Several sheds, one with light and power, provide useful garden storage.
