This individual detached family home has in more recent years been the subject of considerable extension and improvement for the current owners, resulting in an impressive home offering particularly versatile accommodation, with a light and airy feel, complemented by a desirable village location.

The spacious accommodation currently in brief comprises: Entrance door opening to an entrance hall with staircase off to first floor and door to a cloakroom. The sitting room is a spacious reception with opening to a study with window to front. The kitchen dining room is a large open space with an airy atmosphere with dual aspect windows and fitted with an extensive range of units and door to a separate utility room with door opening to a spacious timber garden room (20ftx12ft). There are currently three generous ground floor bedrooms (further potential receptions) a cloakroom and family bathroom. On the first floor is a landing with door to a large loft space (34ftx8ft) providing scope and potential for further accommodation (subject to the relevant planning permissions being approved). Two further comfortable bedrooms are complemented with built in wardrobe cupboards and a stylish shower room.

The property is approached along a shingle driveway providing extensive vehicle parking and turning space. To the rear is an enclosed garden providing a good degree of privacy (particularly during summer months) and a workshop and outbuilding.
