On entering through the impressive and wide glazed front door, you are greeted with a wonderfully spacious and light hallway. The hallway has high ceilings with decorative coving which is a feature to all the rooms. To the right is an attractive sitting room, complete with sash bay windows, flooding the room with light.

The kitchen has a range of base and wall units with an additional large storage cupboard and ample room for a breakfast table. The large window overlooks the stunning garden and there is a door leading out to it. On the other side of the hallway is a playroom, again overlooking the garden and a large storage cupboard. Leading off of this room is a downstairs cloakroom and a utility area with a sink and water softener and a space for washing machine and tumble dryer.
To the upstairs the hallway is again light and spacious and a window overlooks the garden. To the right of the stairs is bedroom 2 which is a good sized double room with built in wardrobes and display shelving along with an inset dressing table. To the left of the stairs is a separate WC and the large family bathroom with bath and shower attachment, and a storage cupboard. The bathroom also houses the hot water cylinder and an airing cupboard. Further along the hallway is the master bedroom which has a shower, sink and a bidet in the corner.

There is a further staircase to the top floor which is a good sized double with a window to the rear and four eaves storage cupboards.
To the outside, the piece de la resistance of this marvellous property is an immaculate and impressive garden, some 160' long and 49' wide. The garden has some lovely mature shrubs and is mainly laid to lawn with a raised patio area. At the end of the garden are storage sheds and an area that could be used as a vegetable patch. There are outside lights and a water tap. The back of the house also houses the end of the driveway with a turning circle and a garage providing ample room for parking.
