Just a short walk to the village amenities and schools, this attractive detached residence – dating back to 1908 – is an ideal family home. Briefly and set over three floors, the accommodation offers some flexibility of use and comprises lounge, sun room, dining room, study/bedroom five, breakfast kitchen, utility room and cloakroom. There are three bedrooms and a bathroom to the first floor and a fourth bedroom and shower room to the second floor. Beautifully stocked gardens sit to front and rear, a cobbled drive provides parking for four/five cars and there is a carport plus detached brick-built garage.
A glass panelled door with matching side panel opens to the Edwardian tiled floor of the porch which also has a wall light and shelters the inner glass panel door with a decoratively stained and leaded surround.
Stepping inside and lit by a pendant light, the hall has a dado rail, is warmed by a radiator and has a painted spindle staircase rising to the first floor and timber doors open to each of the rooms off.
The dual aspect lounge has a double-glazed window to the front with decoratively stained and leaded lights – coordinating with the front door surround - and French windows to the sun room. The focal point of the room is the Adams style timber fire surround with granite inset and hearth and housing a multi-fuel stove and there is a radiator on hand for chillier times. The room is lit by a pendant light plus a wall mounted strip light which illuminates the novels on the built-in bookcase.
The sun room is a perfect retreat with sliding patio doors to the rear garden and windows to either side, all allowing natural light to flow through from the south facing rear garden. The timber clad ceiling has two pendant lights and two radiators warm the room which also has a glazed door to the utility room.
From the hall, a door opens to the dining room with a proscenium arch bay double glazed window with stained and leaded lights – as per the lounge - a ceiling light and two wall lights. A feature plate rack circles the room which also has a radiator and a door to the dining kitchen.
The spacious breakfast kitchen has two double glazed windows to the side, a window to the sun room, a strip fluorescent light to the kitchen and two pendant lights above the table space. Ivory shaded wall and base cabinets, drawers and a peninsula unit are fitted to the kitchen area and have pewter handles and splash tiling between levels. The woodblock effect work-surfaces incorporate a one and a half bowl grey sink unit with mixer tap and also a Bosch four-ring gas hob with eye-level double oven and grill alongside. There is plumbing for an automatic dishwasher, space for a fridge freezer and the slate effect tiled floor benefits from under-floor heating.
The adjacent and good-sized utility room has two Velux windows to the vaulted ceiling, a strip light, terracotta style ceramic tiled flooring and a uPVC part glazed door to the side. A sliding door built-in cupboard provides storage and has shoe shelves below just waiting for muddy boots. A wood effect cabinet with granite effect worktop holds a stainless-steel single drainer sink unit and mixer tap and there is plumbing for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer and fridge freezer, and the room also houses the Trianco Redfyre oil fired central heating boiler. Doors from here lead into the study/bedroom five and cloakroom.
The study/bedroom five has a double-glazed rear window, vaulted ceiling with pendant light, radiator and a vanity set wash hand basin.
The cloakroom has a side window, w.c., radiator and wall mounted strip light.
The L-shaped first floor landing has a window overlooking the rear garden, two pendant lights, a spindle baluster and a built-in linen cupboard with double doors and housing the lagged hot water cylinder tank. Timber and white panelled doors give way to the rooms and a further spindle staircase rises to the second floor.
The principal bedroom has a picture double glazed window to the front, two pendant lights, a picture rail and two radiators. There are three built-in double wardrobes with louvre doors which provide excellent storage and, to one corner, a matching cabinet with marble effect counter and inset wash hand basin.
Bedrooms two and three - a double room overlooking the front and single room overlooking the rear, respectively - also have pendant lights, picture rails, and radiators.
The family bathroom has an opaque double-glazed window to the rear, two pendant lights and very practical wall panelling. The modern white suite comprises a large bathtub with corner mixer tap and hand shower, pedestal wash hand basin and a corner shower cubicle. The two, chrome ladder-style radiators are able to provide an abundance of warm towels. The wood effect vinyl flooring can also be seen in the adjacent separate washroom with opaque rear window, pendant light, splash tiling and a three-piece white suite of w.c., bidet and corner wall mounted wash hand basin.
The second-floor landing has a double-glazed window to the rear and a Velux window to the front, two ceiling lights, a radiator and a hatch to eaves storage. White panelled doors open to both the bedroom and the shower room. The spacious double bedroom has two double glazed rear windows and two ceiling lights.

The bedroom is served by the shower room which has an opaque double-glazed window to the rear, a radiator, extractor fan and partially tiled walls beyond the three-piece white suite comprising glazed cubicle with Redring Active 320 unit, a pedestal wash basin and a low flush w.c.
This attractive period property, dating back to 1908, is set beyond a hedgerow, a tall beech tree, and a very pretty front garden which has crazy-paved and stone paths meandering between well-stocked island beds - one being a former pond with stone-built waterfall - and featuring an array of spring flowering bulbs, rockery plants, heathers, camellias and a Pieris alongside the fence with a small gate opening to the rear garden.
To the side and approached through brick-built gateposts, the cobbled driveway provides parking for four/five cars and leads to the carport and the detached garage beyond with double timber doors, a personal door, side window, power and light. Beyond the garage is the central heating oil tank and compost area.
The rear, fence enclosed garden - equally as appealing - is mainly laid to lawn with beautifully stocked borders having timber and sandstone edging with strategically placed seating niches for taking a break. The fencing supports and array of climbing plants and island borders feature a twisted hazel and a further rockery. Alongside the rear elevation is a patio of hexagonal flagstones offering a vantage point from which to view the garden and a path continues towards the detached garage.
