Via an outside door, a workshop is also located on the ground floor.

Upstairs features three bedrooms, family bathroom with a range of built in cupboards, wardrobes and eaves storage.

Generous reception areas and large garden, including a swimming pool, vegetable beds and plenty of outdoor storage - this home offers a great indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

Ground Floor

As you enter the property, you are welcomed into the Porch. The generous porch provides access to the hallway, family WC/shower room and fifth bedroom - it features ample storage for coats and shoes.

The Hallway provides access to the stairs, lounge and utility room. The hallway also includes two understair cupboards. The hall features parquet flooring which flows through to the main reception areas of the house. 

One of many great features of this house, is the Lounge (7.6m x 4.3m, 24'9 x 14'). It's generous size is further enhanced by a 7 part bifold door over 6m/18' wide - south facing means that the room benefits from plenty of daylight. With the bifolds fully open the lounge and patio work together offering a fantastic outdoor/indoor lifestyle. The lounge also features a double sided woodburner and exposed brickwork. 

Also benefiting from the woodburner and exposed brickwork is the area denoted as the Snug/Music Room (3.3m x 2.9m, 10'10 x 9'5). This area currently houses a piano and fish tank, but could serve a variety of uses. From this area, the Games/Cinema Room and Kitchen/Diner are accessed.

Games/Cinema Room (7.6m x 4m, 25' x 13'1) - with integrated wiring for surround sound and a projector, this room is great for unwinding and watching a movie. Four tilt and turn windows bring light into this recent extension, heating is provided by underfloor heating. With minimal changes this room could be modified to add a sixth bedroom if required.

In the Kitchen/Diner (6.7m x 3.4m, 22' x 11'1), more exposed brickwork adds character to the dining area, which is well lit by generous glazing and sun tunnels. Built in ceiling speakers in this area add to the entertainment credentials of this property. The white gloss kitchen includes a peninsular unit and breakfast bar, generous storage with built in microwave and dishwasher. In addition to the radiator, the Litchen/Diner also benefits from underfloor heating.

Next door to the kitchen is the Utility Room (3.5m x 3.3m, 11'5 x 10'9) - here we find another sink, with plumbing and power for a washing machine, tumble dryer and American style fridge/freezer. The room adds further storage with larder cupboards, as well as two built in cupboards. One of the cupboards houses the gas meter, the other the modern combi boiler. This boiler provides on demand hot water and also heats the many radiators found throughout the property (as well as the underfloor heating in the Cinema Room).

The opposite end of the house contains the Master Bedroom Suite. The Master Bedroom (3.96m x 3.7m, 13' x 12') is accessed through double doors, and features wall to wall and floor to ceiling glazing, with french doors providing access to the garden. Behind the mirror doors, the Dressing Room (3.96m x 2.7m, 13' x 8'9) and Ensuite Bathroom (2.99m x 2.3m, 9'10 x 7'6) are located - providing exceptional levels of storage and a quiet modern bathroom to relax in after a long day. The bathroom also features an airing cupboard.

Bedroom Five (4.3m x 3.7m, 14'2 x 12'2) was added in the last couple of years. As with the Kitchen and Utility rooms, this room also benefits from tilt and turn windows for great ventilation, the inclusion of high specification integrated blinds adds privacy and light control. This room is ideal as a bedroom and/or home office as its location is seperated from the main body of the house by the porch and bathroom - creating a lovely quiet space. 

Next to Bedroom 5, a new WC/Shower Room is a great facility for the whole house and visitors to use. If the owner were to dedicate this bathroom to Bedroom 5 use, there is plumbing under the stairs should an additional downstairs WC be required.

The Workshop (6m x 3.8m max, 19'8 x 12'5 max) is accessed via its own external door, and is currently used as a workshop, for cycling training and also houses the pool equipment. 

First Floor

Upstairs a long hallway provides access to three bedrooms and a bathroom. The bedrooms range in size as shown on the floorplans, all three feature a range of built in wardrobes and storage.

The Family Bathroom (2.2m x 1.4m, 7'2 x 4'8) includes a toilet, bath, shower and basin with storage. The landing also provides access to two full height cupboards, both of which also provide access to eaves storage.

The largest bedroom (3.4m x 3.3m, 11'2 x 10'11) features a full width built in wardrobe as well as eaves storage and loft access.


The front of the property features off road parking for up to four cars. Access can be gained to the west side of the property and to the rear garden via a lockable gate. Beyond the lockable gate, a covered storage area provides options for bin, firewood or bike storage. 

The main garden features a 10m x 5m, 32' x 16' Swimming Pool, which is heated by a gas boiler. A large lawned area provides space for activities and a patio area space for relaxing, eating and entertaining. Much of the garden benefits from brick walls, the rest benefit from fencing and hedging. A bespoke children's playhouse provides a fun area for kids. The east side of the garden features vegetable beds, a greenhouse and wood store. Planning permission has very recently been granted to build a structure to turn this into an indoor pool, so that it can be used all year round.

Local Area

Located in a quiet desirable cul de sac, with good transport links and local facilities. Short walks get you to either the local bus stop or park & ride facility.
