The property has been thoughtfully upgraded by the current owners and presents as a stunning family home occupying a choice position, with far reaching views to the front. A grand entrance hallway provides access to the principal reception rooms including the spacious lounge with attractive wood burning stove for the winter months. To the rear elevation is the impressive family room that flows seamlessly into the dining kitchen. This lovely area is bathed in natural light and benefits from French doors onto the patio. The kitchen has been remodelled to include additional units, breakfast bar and provision for a range stove. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, fridge and freezer. A utility room provides provision for washing machine and tumble dryer, with a courtesy door to the rear.

The first floor houses four well-proportioned bedrooms including a master bedroom with en suite. A further stylish house bathroom and large storage cupboard completes the first floor accommodation. The large loft space offers development potential subject to the necessary planning.

The external areas have been beautifully landscaped and include a sweeping gravel drive and raised beds surrounded by a picket fence. A single garage with up and over doors provides useful storage. The lovely rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with raised beds, a selection of fruit trees and large patio to enjoy the southwesterly aspect. Beyond the boundary is an orchard, offering the garden a good degree of privacy.

In summary, an impressive and beautifully appointed home in an accessible and stunning position.
