Occupying an enviable village setting, this characterful four-bedroom detached house, ideally designed for a modern family, boasts panoramic countryside views, off-street parking, and a south-facing garden.

Nestled behind a landscaped front garden, the frontage of this individual property instantly enhances its charm and character. A welcoming front door gives access, via a tiled vestibule, into a large reception hall. Creating a fabulous first impression, bright decor contrasts beautifully with a honey coloured timber floor.
The ground floor reception rooms offer a sociable flow of accommodation, ideal for everyday family living and formal entertaining. A large living room offers ample space for a choice of comfortable lounge furniture and soft grey-hued decor, beautifully paired with the natural wood floors. A near full-height window is perfectly placed to frame spectacular open countryside views to the front whilst a traditional wood burner provides a cosy focal point for cooler evenings.
Glazed double doors open into an adjoining spacious dining room, featuring the same elegant, contemporary decor. French doors drawn in natural light, and open to the south-facing rear garden - a perfect design for summer parties.
Continuing the flow of family accommodation is the Shaker-inspired kitchen. Here, a range of rich, wood-styled cabinets contrast with gloss-black marble worktops, and trendy earth-toned mosaic tiled splashbacks. Incorporated are a stainless-steel range cooker with a matching hood, an integrated dishwasher and space for a tall fridge/freezer. There is room for a table, ideal for everyday family meals, and a door affording direct access to the rear garden. Adjoining the front vestibule, a fitted utility room is an ideal separate laundry area, and perfect for muddy boots. Also on this level, two double bedrooms sit side by side; each with contrasting colourful decor, cosy carpeting, and a wall of fitted storage. Completing the ground floor, a luxurious, fully tiled family bathroom incorporates a bath, separate shower cubicle, WC and a marble-topped vanity basin.
Stairs curve to a first floor, galleried landing, which has space for a study area, with a wide window perfectly framing the open rural outlook. Accessed from here, is the master bedroom which is tranquilly decorated and warmly carpeted. It comes with superb fitted storage and a three-piece en-suite bathroom, plus a roof Velux window allowing the space to flood in natural light. Across the landing, bedroom two features the same soft decor and fitted storage and is alternatively an ideal cosy sitting room. Finally, the property benefits from gas central heating, double glazing and a solar power installation.
Eternally, the enclosed landscaped gardens envelop the house, with a large south-facing paved patio offering a wonderful suntrap seating area, and to the front, enjoying the open outlook.
