A superb modern detached house on the edge of the village, one of four executive homes tucked away behind the village hall, backing onto open countryside and as such having quiet rural views in a south facing aspect.
A large gated gravel drive provides ample parking and access to the integral double garage with an electric up and over door. A wide and open hallway sits at the centre of the house with the principal receptions rooms and kitchen/dining room accessed off it, all overlooking the gardens. Of note is the large family room with a lovely open fireplace and views across the garden. The impressive kitchen is fitted with handmade Charles Yorke cabinets with marble rolled edge worksurfaces. It has LED under cabinet lighting, a convection range cooker, built in microwave and grill and a tiled floor with underfloor heating throughout. Double doors lead into the covered veranda and garden and through to the dining area. The lounge has a large log burning stove and a corner window seat from which to relax and view the garden. At present, the main bedroom is on the ground floor in a tucked away corner, boasting a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite shower room.
The first floor has a galleried landing leading to three large double bedrooms all with en suite bath/shower rooms, and two having walk in wardrobes. A further bedroom has been presently arranged as a home office, having been fitted with desk and storage cabinets designed by Neville Johnson, a famous office designer.
The gardens are wonderful, leading from the veranda and large paved patio to a level lawn extending to about half an acre. There is a pond and rockery to one side leading down to a faux folly built by the present owners to create a hideaway at the bottom of the garden to relax on summer evenings.
