Constructed in summer 2016, Ashworth House is a stunning contemporary home built to an exceptional standard, displaying many high quality features throughout, complemented by luxurious accommodation, with an emphasis on character and personality. The house is one of only three outstanding properties that form this exclusive superior development in one of the area’s most popular villages, and is discreetly tucked away along a quiet lane located on the outskirts of the village. The build quality is simply outstanding, with traditional materials used throughout including a striking hipped tiled roof-line, rendered elevations, with jettied front elevation and sash windows, oak and stone flooring, oak internal doors and oak timbers, to create a house of considerable character with all the benefits of modern living such as underfloor heating and the energy efficiency that comes with a recently constructed home. The beautifully arranged accommodation extends to approximately 2800 square feet (including garaging) and comprises as follows; traditional entrance door opening to a reception hall with stairs off to first floor and door to a ground floor cloakroom. The splendid sitting room has a pair of french doors to the rear gardens, and a fine traditional fireplace as a central focal point, oak block floor. The study has a traditional bay window to front and a family room has french doors to rear gardens and is open to the fabulous "live in" kitchen dining room with the highest quality units, built-in appliances, central island and wall and floor tiling. The dining area has a sash window to front, french doors to side and a separate utility room completes the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor is a landing with airing cupboard, five spacious bedrooms (two of which are complemented by luxurious en-suite shower rooms) and a stylish family bathroom completes the accommodation.

Ashworth House is approached along a sweeping driveway providing extensive vehicle parking, turning space and access to the double garaging.

The gardens extend to the front, side and rear of the house and are lawned with terrace and railings. The gardens extend in all to approximately 0.3 of an acre (s.t.s)
