Built from Cotswold stone around 30 years ago, this handsome double fronted house has well-appointed accommodation throughout with a flexible, open layout. The welcoming exterior lobby opens into the wide inner hall. Of the principal rooms on the ground floor, of particular note is the spacious open plan kitchen/dining room with granite topped island unit, Belfast sink and range cooker. The kitchen/dining room has chunky ornate cast iron radiators, oak floors and log burner with exposed flue. Oak frame bi-fold doors open full width across the back seamlessly linking the room to the rear decking and garden. Oak framed skylights further add to the light and airy feel. The sitting room also accesses the garden through French doors and makes a cosy retreat also benefitting from a log burner within a slate hearth fireplace. Further downstairs rooms include a snug currently used as a gym, and a study currently used as a music room. There is also a downstairs cloakroom.
The study, en-suite to master bedroom and family bathroom all have underfloor heating. Upstairs can be found four excellent sized double bedrooms. The smart master suite looks out onto the rear garden and has a walk in wardrobe, which leads through to the en-suite shower room. There is a fabulous family bathroom with copper William Holland Bath and matching copper wall mounted radiator. Mandarin limestone mosaic wall tiles complete the look with underfloor heated stone floors. A walk in rainfall shower sits neatly to the side. The landing gives access to the large airing cupboard and separate utility cupboard plumbed for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
