A well-presented, flexible detached family home, in an elevated position in a desirable village.

With flexible, light accommdation throughout, Cherrybank is a well-presented family home offering versatile living space in a delightful garden setting with far-reaching views across this popular village and towards the church.

The property offers an unusual layout but one which utilises the natural elevated slope of the plot; the main entrance is on the upper level, with the bedrooms located on the lower floor. Upstairs there is a well-proportioned sitting room which benefits from wonderful natural light throughout the day, with a formal dining room adjacent, which can be accessed through a folding door, and which opens onto the upper rear garden. The kitchen/breakfast room benefits from integrated appliances and a spacious pantry, with a boot room and utility adjacent.

The primary bedroom is located on the lower level, and benefits from a large window, allowing views over the beautiful gardens. Further located on this floor are three further bedrooms, all of similar size, one which benefits from a set of sliding doors, opening to the beautiful gardens, and a family bathroom.

Cherrybank offers a unique prospect; the property works very well as a family home as it is or, subject to the necessary consents, the property also offers the opportunity and space for extension without detracting from the beautiful setting it resides in.
