STEP INSIDE


Come in through the front door and into the hallway.


The stairs to the right lead you up to the first floor and double french glazed doors open into the superb living dining space.



An open plan space running the full length of the main house is illuminated with natural light from the deep set windows and large bi-fold doors to the rear. The solid wood flooring creates a seamless link between the spacious dining area and the cosy living room. The fireplace with stone surround and mantle form the focal point, with ample space for a large wrap around sofa, perfect for cosying up to watch your favourite soap opera or gathering with friends for a crisp glass of wine.


The dining space is very roomy and could take a very large table, big enough to seat all your guests with ease , whether it be a dinner party with friends or a Christmas lunch with the family.


Entertaining inside and out would be effortless here as the bi-fold doors open to bring the outside in. The block paved patio and steps lead you up to a number of private lawned terraces, ideal for a sophisticated garden party or a casual barbecue on a summer’s day.


FEAST YOUR EYES


Character and light abound in the large kitchen and utility areas. With vaulted ceilings and original wooden beams, the kitchen oozes country charm whilst offering convenience, with space for everything.


As you wander down the steps from the dining room you can really appreciate the scale of this room. The high ceiling is clad with white panelling which compliments the dark timber beams. Skylights and the deep set windows to the front flood the room with natural light. The breakfast bar comfortably seats four and there is also plenty of space for a breakfast table, if needed.


A large range cooker sits pride of place with other appliances integrated into this well fitted and comprehensive kitchen. The perfect space to keep the family fuelled and to cater for special occasions with ease.



A doorway leads you into the utility space which provides more practical storage, space for appliances, a cloakroom/toilet and side door out to the front driveway -making unloading the shopping a doddle.


BEDTIME BECKONS


As you ascend up the stairs you will find a large and spacious landing with soft carpet underfoot. Revive and rejuvenate in the light and airy family bathroom which is found as you step down to the right. A useful airing cupboard is found a little further down on the left.


The first two bedrooms are equally sized, one set up as a single bedroom, the other as double, with beds and furnishings to match. Beautifully decorated with fitted wardrobes, exposed timber beams, high ceilings and two skylights each, allowing light to flow in from above.


At the end of the landing the principal bedroom suite can be found. As you enter, the room opens up and you are met again with high ceilings, timber beams and double skylights. There are built in, up and over wardrobes and storage, and a fitted dressing ensemble, complete with drawer units.


Begin each day refreshed in the ensuite shower room with walk in wet room style shower.
