Four bedroom detached house in private cul de sac

The house is set at the heart of Guys Farm ideally positioned for young families, towards the front of its plot. It is one of only five properties on this private cul-de-sac and was built in 1996 by Cromwell Homes, with part brick, part rendered elevations under a red-tiled roof. The current owners have been in the house since 2017 and have made a number of improvements including redecoration inside and out, the installation of double glazing and upgrading the family bathroom, en suite and downstairs cloakroom.

The accommodationis arranaged over two floors and extends to approx.1,804 sq ft and is light and airy throughout, with the high ceilings and abundant windows in the well-proportioned rooms combining to create a comfortable and inviting family home. The ground floor rooms include a large reception hall, two principle reception rooms; a sitting room and a dining room, a kitchen/breakfast room, a study and a conservatory (currently used as a play room). The staircase in the hall leads up to a galleried landing with the first floor accommodation comprising a principal bedroom with en suite bathroom, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.


A tarmac drive provides parking in front of the detached, pitched-roofed double garage situated to the left of the property . There is a useful pedestrian access leading from the garage into the secluded garden, which is south-facing and includes a large pergola-covered terrace winding round the back of the house and on to the lawns beyond. The present owners have made significant additions to the garden planting and the lawns are flanked by beautifully tended herbaceous borders and a mixture of young and mature trees and shrubs.
