The current vendor has carried out extensive refurbishment of this property to create a wonderfully light, airy, spacious modern home that has a layout ideal for family living. On the ground floor, the reception rooms are all large sizes. There is a wonderful kitchen / breakfast / family room which opens up onto the garden, a generous sitting / dining room with fireplace and wood burner, separate study cum snug, conservatory, utility and cloakroom; and to the first floor, a contemporary family bathroom and 5 double bedrooms, two with en-suites and built-in wardrobes. This property also benefits from a driveway for parking, a detached brick built garage and gardens to the front and rear which would be a haven for children, gardeners, dogs and nature lovers alike. All of the local amenities on offer are just a short walk from this property, including the local primary, junior and secondary schools, Tesco's and Waitrose supermarkets, as well as the Leisure Centre, cricket club and the many individual shops, cafes, bars and restaurants that attract people to the town.
The beautiful original front door opens into a useful entrance lobby, ideal for shoes and boots. This is in turn open to the hallway.
The long hallway gives access to the main reception rooms, cloakroom and staircase to the first floor. Open storage space under stairs.
Cleverly fitted under the stairs, it consists of a WC and corner wash basin.
Sitting / Dining Room
