A beautifully presented detached five-bedroom house in a picturesque countryside location

Reception space is plentiful, notably the bright dual aspect kitchen/breakfast/dining room with French doors opening to the terrace and garden. This contemporary designed room benefits from an array of wall and base units, a central island, broad wooden flooring and a wood burner. The reception room is particularly expansive with triple windows overlooking the rear grounds and access directly to the terrace. Additional versatile living space is provided by both a family room and separate music room.

Upstairs accommodates a generous main bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room, four further bedrooms (one with an en-suite shower room), and a separate family bathroom. All the bedrooms enjoy views over the gardens and surrounding countryside.

Outside

The property is approached via a gravel driveway providing ample parking for several cars and further parking/storage space available within the integral double garage. The southerly rear garden is charmingly landscaped with large level lawns extending to a small stream. A wisteria clad pergola area provides a peaceful seating area, perfect for alfresco dining. The walled terrace extending from the kitchen and reception room provide further outdoor entertaining space. Mature trees, shrubs and borders, along with the potager garden create a pretty and tranquil setting.
