Fronted by attractive lawned gardens along with an orchard and kitchen garden, the dual access electric gated driveway with intercom entry system is flanked my mature trees, and the house is approached by an elevated stone flagged terrace. The imposing arched entrance opens via a vestibule through double leaded glass doors to the central reception hall with wall panelling, strip oak flooring, useful storage cupboard and a guest cloakroom. To the front elevation is a dual aspect formal dining room with feature fireplace. To the rear elevation the magnificent drawing room is arranged around another feature fireplace and opens out through double doors to fabulous South facing sun terrace with luxurious heated swimming pool which is usable all year round and has a fully automated safety cover so that children can play safe. The outdoor lifestyle of this property is a focus and selling point having a separate elevated seating area, designated space for the hot tub, and specific pool room changing facilities with shower and w/c. Beyond the swimming pool is a lawned garden with stone walled boundary and childrens play area which is conveniently shaded by a canopy of trees. Leading back into the house are double doors to the large family kitchen. This room boasts polished porcelain tiled flooring and is fitted with traditionally styled units with Aga range and granite work surfaces which are a perfect suit for the property. There is space for a family breakfast table and a lounging area in front of the impressive Yorkshire Range with log burning stove. In addition to this living space there is another reception room that offers flexibility of use as a childrens play room or further sitting room. Adjoining the kitchen is a practical boot room providing access from both front and rear which leads through to a gym room and large laundry room. To the first floor the central landing branches to a house bathroom and four bedrooms, the master suite offering extensive space with a bay window overlooking the rear gardens, full en-suite bathroom with bathtub and separate shower, and dressing room with built in wardrobes. The second floor reveals two further well-proportioned bedrooms with a serving shower room, as well as a large amount of storage space. As well as excellent parking space for multiple vehicles to the front of the house, there is a detached stone built garage large enough for housing a single car.
