On entering, through double electric gates is a beautifully landscaped garden with evergreen Box hedging and a variety of shrubs. The decorative gravel driveway has space for two cars and features an electric car charging point.
The entrance porch boasts an original stained-glass door, decorative glass panels, and tiled lobby – opening into a bright and spacious hallway. Recently installed wood panelling compliments the sweep of the staircase. To the right are two well-proportioned, interconnecting reception rooms. The first reception room – currently the dining room – is located to the front of the house with original fireplace, tiled inserts and gas coal effect fire. A triple bay window with leaded stained glass faces the front garden. Doors lead into the second reception room – currently the lounge – with identical cornicing, ceiling rose, original wood and tiled fireplace. This is a lovely space for entertaining or cosying up on a winter’s evening. Bespoke fitted carpets run through both rooms.
French doors lead to a ‘Hamptons style’ garden room and open-plan kitchen. Well positioned sky lights and wall-to-wall glazing provide an abundance of light and an additional set of French doors lead to the sunny rear garden, giving this area a ‘continental’ feel. This living space within this area has a contemporary, wall-fitted gas log effect fire. The open plan kitchen, also accessed from the hallway is fully fitted with wall and floor units, with integrated appliances. A pale colour palette and white granite countertop combine a modern and classic feel. A well-equipped utility room leads off the kitchen, with access to both the rear garden and the garage to the front of the house. A guest WC completes the accommodation on this floor.
There are four double bedrooms on the upper floors, the first return has a beautiful stained-glass window. From here the family bathroom is accessed, with bath, WHB, WC and stand in shower, decorated in soft, delicate patterned wall finishes and floor tiles.
On the first floor, two double bedrooms overlook the front garden. The main bedroom, with bay window, has a fireplace with gas effect coal fire. To the rear, is a generously sized dressing room with shower, WC and vanity unit. Floor to ceiling wardrobes provide plenty of storage. This level benefits from an additional walk-in wardrobe.

The fourth bedroom is on the second floor, has fitted wardrobes and a Velux window. Further storage under the eaves is accessible from this landing.

These include Japanese maple, miniature bay trees, delicate roses and lavenders. Outdoor electric lanterns, various patio areas and a water feature provide the perfect outdoor space for entertaining and dining alfresco on warm summer evenings.
