Light suffuses the lavishly sized lounge next door on the right. A capacious space, natural light flows freely through the large window to the front through to the sliding patio doors at the rear, blurring the boundaries between indoors and out. Carpeted in biscuit, this cosy lounge is a delight throughout the seasons, with the option to slide outside and onto the patio for tea and cake in the summertime and to hunker down in front of the gas fire in winter. Combining comfort with cosiness, there is ample space for a three-seater settee, two-seater settee, armchair, side tables and a large cabinet in here.
Ahead from the entrance hall, a formal dining area overlooks the verdant and established rear garden.

Alongside a brand-new Hotpoint electric oven and hob, there is plumbing for a dishwasher beside the stainless-steel sink overlooking the leafy trees to the front. A large window soaks up views of the garden beyond the practical cooking area. Consider the potential to add French doors, to create a seamless flow between the outdoors and within.
An inner hallway leads off the kitchen, connecting it with both the garage and a rear, sitting room extension.
Designed by the previous owners as a playroom for children, note the long ‘L’ shaped fitted furniture along two walls, providing both storage and seating. Peaceful and quiet, set apart from the main living area, this room could make an excellent home office or media room.
Returning to the entrance hall, take the stairs up to the first floor, where four great-size double bedrooms await.
Nestled to the front of the home, refresh and unwind in the large, five-piece bathroom featuring bath, separate shower cubicle, bidet, wash basin and WC.
