A family home
To the front of the property is the living room, a welcoming, homely and beautiful space. Decorated in luxurious Farrow & Ball ‘Purbeck Stone’ and fitted with cosy fresh new carpet, bespoke shelving storage has been expertly crafted to either side of the fireplace. Marble tiles feature beneath a timber mantle, downlit to highlight the electric wood burner stove. Opposite, feature full-height panelling reflects the sophisticated style. Classic French-style shutters are fixed in the bay window which overlooks the front garden.
On the way upstairs notice a stained-glass window which provides abundant light to the landing, with panelling to the walls.

Benefitting from mood lighting and underfloor heating, this bathroom features a modern anthracite grey heated towel rail, WC, wash basin, rainfall wet-room shower and freestanding bath with ‘Hudson Reed’ wall mounted tap.
In the master bedroom to the front there are classical French style shutters fitted to the bay window. Beautiful built-in wardrobes offer lots of room for clothes. Even with a super-king-size bed there is plenty of room to move about this spacious bedroom.
Bedroom two is also a large and light room, with views over the rear garden. Feature wall panelling contrasts against Farrow and Balls ‘De Nimes’ regency blue to the upper walls with wood flooring adding an elegant warmth.
A third bedroom to the front of the house could make a useful office when working from home, or child’s bedroom-nursery. Wallpapered in Andrew Martin ‘Safari’ print, complemented by Farrow and Balls ‘Cornforth White’, shuttered blinds are fitted to the window looking out over the front. A charming room. Above, there is loft access via drop down ladders.
Ideal garden for children and pets
At the rear of the property a decked area outside the kitchen diner is ideal for barbecues and dining out. Beneath the decking the Indian stone paved patio leads on to low maintenance astro turf.
