It is well-appointed with cabinet storage and sweeping worksurfaces, backed by easy-to-clean splashbacks. It has undercabinet lighting and includes a selection of appliances (integrated oven and ceramic hob, and an undercounter fridge, and dishwasher). A separate utility room supplements the kitchen with a quiet space for laundry. The ground floor is completed by a three-piece shower room and a versatile single bedroom that could work equally well as an office. The three remaining bedrooms are upstairs off a naturally-lit landing. These bedrooms are bright and spacious doubles, two of which also benefit from generous built-in wardrobes. They are served by a bathroom, fitted with a three-piece suite and a shower over bath. Oil-fired central heating and double glazing ensure year-round comfort.
Outside, the home boasts substantial mature gardens that wraparound two sides of the property. Mostly laid to lawn and with established hedgerows for privacy, the gardens further boast a sunny, southeast-facing aspect. An integrated double garage and a multi-car driveway provide extensive private parking for several vehicles.
Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, integrated appliances, a fridge, a dishwasher, and a washing machine to be included in the sale.
