A modern four double bedroom detached property occupying a prominent elevated position within formal gardens and fenced paddocks of approximately 2.62 acres.
The property was originally constructed in 1999 by Bryant Homes to the Balmoral design and has been significantly improved and enlarged by the addition, in 2016, of a bespoke Orangery by David Salisbury. The remaining ground floor accommodation has four further reception rooms, a refitted kitchen/breakfast room, a utility room and a cloakroom. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes, and two with en suites. The en suite in the master bedroom and the family bathroom have been refitted with contemporary style sanitaryware. The property is set within landscaped gardens and paddocks of approximately 2.62 acres with a variety of trees including fruit trees and space for a vegetable garden. In addition, there is a courtyard area providing parking and access to a three car garage and a separate open fronted wooden barn with a tiled roof and space for two cars.

The orangery is constructed of brick and hardwood with Argon double glazing and a large lantern skylight. There is a Jotul log burning stove and double doors to the rear terrace. The sitting room has a bay window with views of open fields and paddocks, and a Clearview log burning stove set in a recess. There is also a snug with views of the garden and paddock, and a study with views over open countryside to the front.
Kitchen and Dining Room
The kitchen was refitted in 2015 in a custom built range of bespoke painted cabinets, which include glazed display cabinets and an inset larder/pantry, with Corian work surfaces incorporating a sink unit and drainer. Integrated appliances by AEG include a conventional electric oven, a steam oven, gas hob with extractor over, a dishwasher and full height larder fridge and separate freezer. Feature archways lead into the adjacent dining room which has glazed double doors to the rear terrace.
