Approaching the property via a private driveway, with a path at the side, you enter the house under an open porch, across a paved terrace. The accommodation comprises a light-filled entrance hallway with an understairs cupboard, cloakroom, sitting room, home office/snug/ playroom and an open-plan kitchen-dining room on the ground floor. Upstairs, are the bedrooms and family bathroom.

Decorated in modern muted grey tones, the spacious bay-fronted sitting room overlooks the front garden. An open arch from the hallway leads to what was once an integral garage, now beautifully converted into a children's playroom.

The exceptional kitchen/living room/diner spans the full width of the back of the house and is fitted with contemporary sage-green units, finished with black-quartz worktops with contrasting metro-tiled splashbacks. There is space for a range cooker, with a glass and stainless-steel extractor hood, a recess for an American-style fridge-freezer and an integrated dishwasher, washing machine and wine chiller. Marble-effect floor tiles, space for a large dining table and two sets of French doors leading into the garden, are also features of this room, which has room for a corner sofa at one end. There is also a cupboard housing a tumble dryer, a vertical radiator, spotlights and a recessed wine shelf.

Upstairs, the bedrooms are accessed off a galleried landing, where there is a large airing cupboard and loft access. Three of the bedrooms are at the front of the house and enjoy a bright and sunny outlook, while the master bedroom and another double are at the back. The master is almost 19ft long, with a dressing area and an en-suite bathroom, featuring geometric tiling and a rainfall shower over the bath.

A large, level lawn is enclosed by painted fencing, and there are well-established borders, a small garden shed and a children's play set with slide, climbing wall and bridge.
