The five double bedroom house has been transformed by the current owners to create a stylish and contemporary home with generous proportions throughout.

A large and bright entrance hall with copious storage sets the scene for the wonderful and characterful space that lies beyond.

There are two separate reception rooms that work ideally as study and children’s playroom while the formal lounge to the front offers a minimalist style and opens through to the rear of the house. This spectacular space incorporates a stylishly designed kitchen with breakfast bar and opens through to a large family space.

Bi-folding doors span the rear as the space flows through to a dining area with vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling glass.

Upstairs there are five bedrooms, three of which also feature vaulted ceilings. This clever use of space creates wonderfully bright and generous rooms.

The master and second bedrooms benefit from beautifully fitted en-suites along with a family bathroom serving the remaining rooms.

Externally there is ample parking to the front and a garage to the side. The large rear garden is over 130ft in length and mainly laid to lawn.

There is also a garden room that could be used as a summer house or office.

Looking back at the house, the cedar-clad facade and aluminium framed windows create a wonderfully grand design, all situated in an ideal setting for access to local schools and the station.
