For a good part of the year this elevated, detached five-bedroom residence is hidden from view by the mature tree boundaries yet is located on the verge of the village, peacefully relishing the amazing rural views. The spacious accommodation includes three reception rooms, breakfast kitchen plus utility room, cloakroom and a family bathroom and two en suite facilities. The surrounding parkland style grounds have a sweeping driveway cutting through to the parking and turning area alongside the ranch style three-bay carport and attached garage and there is easy access to the various motorway networks within a few minutes.
The driveway sweeps around to the rear of the property where entrance is gained to the property via uPVC double doors to the vestibule having a vaulted ceiling and apex window overlooking the rear garden and a further window offering a contribution of natural light. A wall light welcomes evening guests and further double doors open to the spacious hallway with a high ceiling, wall lighting points and a spindle staircase which rises and turns to the first floor. A niche leads to the under-stairs storage cupboard and oak doors open to each of the rooms except the principal lounge which has opaque glass double doors, lending the hallway further natural light.
The charming lounge has a picture window to the front and a French window opening to the garden which abuts the adjoining farmland. For evening ambience there is a central pendant light, four wall lights and the broad chimney breast with a brick ingle and slate hearth surrounding the glow from the log burning stove.
The snug also has a picture window to the front and built-in book shelves and display cabinets line two walls, incorporating cupboards and drawers. A central pendant light illuminates, a radiator warms and this room is a perfect retreat for five minutes peace.
The breakfast kitchen has two windows and sliding patio doors to the side of the property. The engineered oak flooring blends well with the range of ivory shaded Shaker style wall and base units, highlighted by spot-lighting above, and incorporating basket storage, drawers and having wood effect counters and a matching island breakfast bar. Cooking facilities are provided by the five-burner range cooker with glass splash-back and a stainless-steel chimney style extractor fan above. Inset is an enamel Butlers sink unit with mixer tap and, close by, an integrated automatic dishwasher. Adjoining is a utility room with rear window, quarry tiled floor and kitchen complementary units, a stainless-steel sink unit, plumbing for an automatic washing machine and space for a tumble dryer.
Adjacent to the kitchen, the dual aspect dining room is, again, spacious and light, has two radiators to warm the area, a central pendant light and wall lighting points.
The cloakroom has a window to the side, a radiator and is fitted with a two-piece suite of rich oak vanity cabinet with a graphite grey Silestone counter supporting the white wash bowl and glass splash back and a further unit supports the w.c. The slate tiled floor coordinates perfectly whilst a built-in cupboard gives linen and toiletries storage.
Off the kitchen, a door opens to the rear hall which has a composite door to the rear garden, laminate flooring, a built-in cupboard and shoe shelves and a door to the very useful in-house out-house store room.
A further door opens to the good-sized triple-aspect guest bedroom with windows to the rear and side and French windows to the garden. There is an exposed rafter, a loft access point and ample space for clothes storage furniture. The en suite facility has an opaque window to the rear, practical laminate flooring, a radiator and ceiling light. There is strategically placed wall tiling to the white three-piece suite which comprises corner shower cubicle, wall mounted wash hand basin and a low flush w.c.
The landing has three wall lights, a window to the rear and a loft access point. The built-in double cupboard houses the hot water cylinder tank to one side and has shelves for airing linen to the other.
The generously sized master bedroom has picture window to the front with far reaching views. There is a built-in wardrobe with clothes rails and shoe shelves and a wall mounted television point is positioned opposite the bed space.
The en suite is fitted with a contemporary suite comprising a black, double basin inset counter and twin mixer taps resting on an oak cabinet with drawers, a coordinating panelled bath with central taps and shower over and a low flush w.c. The room is warmed by a radiator and lit by recessed down-lights.
Bedroom two has a room-wide panoramic window, arguably offering the best view of the property. A range of fitted wardrobes to one wall provide excellent storage and, for convenience, there is a corner vanity set wash hand basin. A central pendant light is fitted and a radiator warms the room.
Bedroom three also has a picture window to the front, pendant light, radiator, built-in double wardrobes and a corner vanity set wash hand basin.
The dual aspect bedroom four is a small double with a fitted wardrobe, pendant light and radiator and is currently used as a study.
The family bathroom has two rear windows, inset spotlights. The three-piece white suite comprises a panelled bath with centralised mixer tap, a fully tiled corner shower cubicle, a pedestal wash hand basin with tiled splash back and a low flush w.c., and there is also a radiator to warm the towels.
Passing through a five-bar electronically controlled gate, the sweeping and illuminated Tarmacadam driveway ascends to the pebbled turning area with parking for numerous cars and having a three-bay ranch-style carport with an attached garage to one end. Beyond this, a section of the garden has been fenced off and allocated to a few free-range chickens who have their own detached, timber-built house to call home. To the rear of the property, a pebbled path gives way through a picket fence to the vegetable garden with three raised timber beds and a good-sized greenhouse alongside. From here, the side lawn garden has an al fresco decked area directly outside the kitchen patio doors and overlooks the orchard of fruit trees. The extensive lawn wraps around to the front of the property, is dotted with specimen trees and an array of further fruit trees and, on the way, embraces a wonderful wild-life pond. As the property – set in a total of seven acres - is so secluded, the south facing front garden is where the family gravitate to for afternoon relaxation and to savour the fabulous views beyond the stock-fenced boundary.
