This stunning detached house has been the subject of an extensive refurbishment which has been executed to an exacting standard for the current owners. The result is exceptional with a high standard of finish throughout the open plan living space which has been reconfigured to compliment a modern lifestyle and enjoys underfloor heating throughout. The house is approached via a long driveway and stands in delightfully secluded grounds of around ¼ of an acre. The well established gardens are quite enchanting having been lovingly created and thoughtfully planted to provide privacy and year round colour.

The house provides light and airy accommodation of particularly comfortable proportions with the majority of the rooms enjoying a southerly aspect over the gardens. The accommodation includes a generous reception hall with Karndean oak effect flooring extending through the entire ground floor, a study and cloakroom, a large sitting/dining room which is open plan to the stunning kitchen/breakfast room which has been fitted in a smart contemporary style. The first floor incorporates 4 bedrooms (the master with a sleek modern en-suite shower room, the fourth bedroom currently used as a dressing room to the master) and a bathroom. There is considerable potential to extend should additional space be required and planning has already been granted for an extension to the rear. The long driveway at the front of the house provides parking for numerous vehicles and access to the attached double garage (accessed from the hallway) which incorporates a utility area.
