The Property This appealing home has a lovely spacious entrance hall not often found in more modern homes and glazed interior doors allow light to flood through the house. The sitting room enjoys a double aspect and features a fireplace fitted with a multi-fuel stove. Sliding doors open out onto a terrace which is well screened and benefits from an electrically operated retractable awning and a heat lamp for cooler days and evenings. The dining room is ideal for more formal occasions and leading off is a conservatory which can equally serve as a study. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a comprehensive range of floor and wall cupboards with breakfast bar and includes an integral fridge, Hotpoint double oven, ceramic hob and extractor hood. There is space for a freestanding dishwasher and the adjacent utility room has ample space for additional appliances.
A wide staircase winds up to the first floor where three double bedrooms are arranged off a galleried landing. Two bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and the master bedroom has a good sized en-suite shower room. There is a particularly spacious family bathroom and the first floor layout could potentially be reconfigured to provide for a larger master bedroom if required. All loft space in the house and above the garage is boarded for additional storage. This is a lovely home which has potential for extension and has wide appeal for young families and equally those looking to retire and move into a well served village.
