DESCRIPTION
This substantial detached family house is situated in a much sought after cul-de-sac on the cusp of the village of Saltwood, within walking distance of various schools and close to a bus route. Having been extensively refurbished by the current owners, the property now offers beautifully presented accommodation of particularly comfortable proportions. This comprises a welcoming entrance hall, two reception rooms both facing south and overlooking the garden, a smartly fitted kitchen/breakfast room incorporating integrated appliances and a cloakroom. On the first floor there are four generous bedrooms, three of which have built in wardrobes, the principal room with an en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom. There is also considerable scope to extend should additional space be required (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).

The gardens are a particularly attractive aspect of the property, enjoying a southerly aspect and being well enclosed and thoughtfully planted providing a good degree of privacy and seclusion. To the front of the house there is off street parking on the driveway which also provides access to the integral garage.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan.
