The Property

Situated on a corner plot, this property covers far larger square footage than many four-bedroom houses in the area and has scope for extension (subject to planning approval). Boasting a multi-level garden with outhouses, a swimming pool, and several seating areas, this family home fantastically blurs the lines between indoors and outdoors.

As you approach the house, you are met with a curved path to the pretty stained glass front door. Inside, a spacious porch leads into the hallway off which are the ground-floor living rooms and WC. Well suited to family living, the ground floor offers plenty of space to spend time together. Relax in the lounge, which has a feature fireplace and doors leading to the garden. Entertain friends and family in the dining room, or eat breakfast together in the kitchen - which also has space for a dining table.

Upstairs to the first floor, you’ll find three to four bedrooms (depending on how you use the space) and a family bathroom with a bath with shower over, WC, and handbasin. The stylish principal bedroom offers ample storage space with its triple-fitted wardrobes and has the added luxury of an en-suite shower room.

Outside, the private garden adds the wow factor to this family home. Spanning a large area, it has several seating areas which each offer a different view of the house. Almost separated into zones, you can chill out by the heated swimming pool, dine under the pergola, or while away the hours watching the fish in the pond. The conservatory adds an extra room in which to relax and the games room/bar offers fun for all the family. There’s also an outdoor office and outdoor WC - a bonus for working from home. The office space offers excellent separation between ‘work’ and ‘home’ and can be accessed without walking through the house.

This property is Freehold and the council tax band is F.
