The Property

Built in 2012 by the current owners to a high specification, this excellent family home enjoys a semi-rural location enhanced by a west facing rear aspect over fields. The hall and landing are particular features affording the house a spacious feeling throughout. The hub of the home is the large kitchen/dining/family room at the rear with a lovely aspect onto the garden. Planning permission has been obtained, albeit now lapsed, for a large two and a half sized garage with room over, offering the potential for multi-generational living and working from home. Underfloor heating is installed throughout and apart from the sitting room, the whole of the ground floor features hard-wearing tiled wood effect flooring. LED lighting is installed throughout.

The Accommodation

The entrance porch has windows either side and double doors giving access to the spacious hall. There is a built-in coats cupboard and a useful under stair storage space with automatic light. On the left is the double aspect sitting room with a log burning stove. To the right is the study, with a cloakroom between here and the utility room, which has a cupboard housing the pressurised hot water cylinder. There is a fitted water softener and an external stable door. A wide opening off the hall leads into the fabulous dual aspect kitchen/dining/family room with two sets of bi-fold aluminium doors into the garden. There is a built in oven, microwave and warming drawer. The hob has an extractor over, while the full height fridge, freezer and dishwasher are all integrated. There is a ceramic sink and island unit with quartz work top. On the first floor, the generous landing has a velux roof light and window and can easily incorporate a further study area if required. The master bedroom has a dressing room with hanging rails and drawers, plus an en suite shower with a large enclosure. The second bedroom also has an en suite shower, and the two remaining bedrooms are both doubles. The large family bathroom has a free standing bath, and a separate shower enclosure.

Outside

At the front is a Cotswold stone wall and a laurel hedge with twin electric gates and a separate pedestrian gate. This leads to a large gravelled parking and turning area. The store on the left of the entrance houses the boiler, consumer unit and electricity meter, with the oil tank hidden behind. This is where the new garage is intended to be sited. Gated access both sides of the house leads to the rear garden. This has a lawn, shrub borders, a diamond shaped central seating area with a fire pit, a decked area with low level lighting and a pergola. To the left side is a garden shed and there are external power points, taps and outside lighting.
