A uPVC door with leaded glass insert opens to the vestibule having a side window and pendant light. A further door with etched glass opens to the hallway with a radiator, two pendant lights, dado rail, plate rack and very useful floor-to-ceiling fitted cupboards. To the far end of the hall is a triple-aspect study with a window overlooking the gardens and having a radiator and strip lighting. Also off the hall is the part tiled cloakroom with a two-piece suite comprising a wall-mounted wash hand basin and close-coupled w.c., radiator and extractor fan.
Off the main hallway, the generously sized and well-proportioned triple aspect lounge takes full advantage of the garden views with a window to the front, picture window to the rear and sliding patio doors. There are two radiators and ample space for a dining table and chairs. Just off the lounge is a snug with window to the front and the focal point of an Adams-style mahogany fire surround with marble inset, gas coals fire and green slate hearth to match the display and television plinths to either side, having picture niches above.
The breakfast kitchen has vinyl flooring, inset spotlights and a picture window to the glorious gardens. The area is fitted with a range of oak wall and base units and drawers having Formica worktops over and an inset one-and-a-half bowl stainless steel single drainer sink unit and mixer tap. Cooking facilities are provided by a four-ring Creda ceramic hob with canopy extractor over and a microwave oven below whilst to the side is an eye-level double oven and grill. There is space available for an automatic dishwasher and a fridge.
A door leads to the spacious utility room via an inner hall with pendant light and radiator. The utility room, with windows to the side and rear and part-glazed door to the rear, is fitted with kitchen-complementary units and a double fitted cupboard has a radiator creating an ideal airing cupboard. There is a wall-mounted Worcester gas central heating boiler, plumbing for an automatic washing machine and space for a freezer and tumble dryer. The flooring is ceramic tiled which co-ordinates perfectly with the splash tiling.
The inner hall also gives way to the three bedrooms and bathroom. The light and bright master bedroom has a window to the front and a radiator. An archway leads to the dressing room with built-in wardrobes with mirrored sliding doors and a further door opens to the fully tiled en suite with an opaque side window. The suite comprises a shower cubicle with glass concertina-style doors and Mira Advance electric shower, a vanity set wash hand basin and w.c. with illuminated mirror over and there is a chrome ladder-style heated rail to warm the towels.
Bedroom two has a window to the front, pendant lighting and a radiator. Wardrobes are fitted to one wall and there is ample space for drawers and night stands.
Bedroom three, with laminate flooring, is dual aspect with windows to the front and side plus pendant lighting, radiator, loft access point and is fitted with three double wardrobes with storage cabinets above.
The fully tiled family bathroom has two opaque windows to the rear and wood-effect vinyl flooring. The corner bath has a moulded seat and a Mira Advance shower over plus protective glass screen. The suite also includes a console-style vanity set wash hand basin with mixer tap and close-coupled w.c. plus a radiator supplies warmth.
The gardens are an absolute joy - paved paths meander throughout the exquisitely planted borders with respite areas provided to absorb and admire along on the way. Starting with a pebbled oasis stocked with succulents, on towards the ornamental pond edged by flag irises continuing to the rear lawn surrounded by calming variegated greenery with alliums and foxgloves stretching through at intervals. A second arbour gives way to the larger lawn which is both dotted and bordered by trees including a sturdy willow and densely stocked borders.
Behind the detached brick-built block of three stables are compost boxes, rhubarb beds and an orchard of apple and plum trees. A workshop with three-phase electricity houses a wash-room with hand basin, shower cubicle and w.c. whilst further on is a kitchenette with a side-draining stainless-steel sink unit. A door leads to an adjoining potting shed and double doors to a further workshop with corner kitchen.
The glasshouse is laid out in nursery style with paved paths running between aisles for easy access and incorporating an automatic watering system. Just beyond, a sheltered area and pebbled paths provide the perfect spot for container planting currently styled with heucheras, hostas and a copper sycamore overhead.
On to the more formal yet stunning par-terre style display of island beds, colour co-ordinated with herbaceous planting and having arbour entries laden with roses and clematis. Beyond this, the naturally laid orchard with an array of fruit trees including eating and baking apples, plum and damson as well as a much-needed bonfire patch for autumn time.
