Sympathetically modernised and enhanced over the years, the property is beautifully presented effortlessly combining contemporary fittings with period charm. The house itself incorporates four bedrooms and extends to some 2400 sq ft with a versatile layout to suit most families.

The attractive brick and stone flooring leads to the formal generously proportioned living room, opening the dining room at the rear of the house with bi-folding doors leading to a sunny patio terrace garden and a most impressive air-conditioned Victorian style conservatory. The beautifully fitted bespoke kitchen is located at the rear of the house with a separate utility room and cloakroom. There is an excellent range of fitted cabinets with solid wood work surfaces and some integrated appliances. Adjacent to the hallway, there is a small study overlooking the front courtyard.
The first floor divides into the older part of the house located at the front with exposed timbers, sloping eaves and dormer windows. The family bathroom features a white period suite with raised slipper bath, pedestal basin and WC. From the main landing into the rear of the house, there are two of the double bedrooms with built in storage and separate modern fitted shower room.

The formal garden to the rear have been maintained to the same high standards by the present owners and extends to a large area of lawn with mature hedging to either side, a paved pathway and a varied selection of topiary bushes.
