Stepping through the front door, you are welcomed by a spacious and attractive hallway which has been tastefully decorated with cream coloured walls and oak wood flooring. Towards the end of the hallway is a large storage cupboard underneath the stairs, and a staircase leading up to the first floor.

On your right is the second reception room which can be used for a number of different purposes, as it works perfectly as a second living room, or a separate dining room if desired, or even as a downstairs bedroom and office, which the current owners previously used it as. With dual aspect double glazed windows creating a lot of light, this enables the room to be split into sections. The initial section is a great size and comfortably fits a double bed or large sofa, while the other section, which is briefly separated by a small brick wall and wooden beams, can act as an office or playroom. This room is neutrally decorated with cream carpet, spotlights and even has a double fronted storage cupboard built in.

Continuing through the property to the other side of the entrance hall, you will enter the main reception space which is a wonderfully characterful living room comprising of oak wood flooring, patio doors leading into the garden and a beautiful multi -fuel wood burner which is set in a feature brick fireplace.

While not only having been bespoke made to a high quality, there is also a large island with multiple cupboards and an integrated wooden breakfast bar which seats a number of stools and is positioned in front of a TV point. This kitchen is has not only been tastefully and stylishly done, but has also been well thought out as there is also an integrated dishwasher, beautiful white butler sink which is perfectly positioned in front of the window overlooking the garden and a large storage cupboard.

The utility room, which is located to the right of the kitchen, has been done in keeping with the style of the kitchen, having light grey wall and base units, wood flooring and a white butler sink position in front of a window. This is the perfect size for a utility room, as there are multiple cupboard and also space for a washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as a built in unit designed to fit an American style fridge freezer. To add extra character, the current owner have kept the stable door in the utility room, which has access into the garden. Towards the end of the utility room is the downstairs WC which comprises of a low level flush WC and a large built in grey and marble effect hand basin with storage cupboards beneath.

Heading up to the first floor, the landing is very spacious and has been neutrally decorated much like the rest of this floor.

There is also a large chrome heated towel rail.

Not only is this property situated on a fantastic size plot, but the current owners have also massively improved the condition and facilities that are situated on the plot. As you step out of the property, there is a large patio area which is ideal for al-fresco dining, especially due to the unique outdoor built in log burner, which is perfect for dining outside on summer nights. The patio area is situated in the most private area of the garden, set behind a stone wall with steps leading up to an area laid to lawn and another smaller patio area.

There are a number of outbuildings which have been cleverly improved and added, such as the detached wooden framed building which is currently used as a bar. This building has electricity, electric pull down shutters, a built-in bar and space for outdoor furniture if desired. Towards the end of the garden is another outbuilding which was originally stables but has since been insulated and damp proofed in order to make it a functioning space, or even an annexe if further work is done. The stables have been separated into separate spaces, with one side acting as an outdoor WC, ideal for guests if you have a summer party.

Next to this is a double garage which has an electric roller shutter door and lights. Both the stables and the garage are situated on the pebbled driveway, which has space for multiple cars.
