Further advantages include a gas central heating system, uPVC double glazed windows, an extensive range of quality kitchen units with several integrated appliances and an integral, large single garage.

Extended around 2010 to provide a master bedroom with en-suite facilities on the second floor, this very inviting home also features several exposed brick fireplaces, picture rails to the majority of rooms, a wealth of built-in or integral storage and contemporary bathroom and shower room suites including a spa bath and separate shower in the family bathroom.

The house enjoys a westerly facing position and is set well back from a country lane with access provided over a long, shingle drive entered through twin five bar gates. The gardens at the front are laid principally to lawn with borders stocked with a wide variety of flowers and shrubs bounded on the front by a mature hedge and a line of mature sentinel-like trees. The majority of the gardens lay to the southern side of the house and they also are laid mainly to lawn with mature boundary hedging, several fruit trees and two Victorian style lamp posts. The drive separates this garden area from a paved patio which is part covered by a timber framed pergola and mature wisteria. Adjacent beds include flowers, shrubs and a young, productive pear tree. The drive culminates in a shingle hammerhead providing further parking/turning facilities and access to the integral garage approached from the rear (some 5.7m x 3.65m = 18'8'' x 12'0'' internally : with twin timber entry doors, fitted work benches and shelving, power and light points). The garage is fronted by a concreted area and the whole of the rear is bounded by high, boarded fencing or mature privet hedging.
