A five bedroom detached house with driveway parking and a garage located in the heart of the village.
The property has been completely refurbished by the vendors and provides over 3,000 sq. ft. of spacious, modern accommodation. Features include underfloor heating throughout, brick fireplaces, modern sanitaryware, oak internal doors and vaulted ceilings. On the ground floor there are five reception rooms, a contemporary style kitchen/breakfast room, a utility room, shower room and plant room. The first floor galleried landing is split level and there is a fully boarded and insulated loft space spanning the length of the property. There are five bedrooms, four with en suite shower rooms. The driveway provides parking for up to three cars and access to the single garage which has power and a sink. The front garden is enclosed by brick walling and there is a side access to the rear garden through a decorative lockable metal gate. The rear garden is enclosed by brick walls and mature hedgerow. It is principally lawned with a paved patio for outdoor entertaining.
The dual aspect family room has an inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove and bi-fold doors to the rear garden. The dining room is to the front of the property and has quarry tiled flooring. The study is to the rear of the property and has a door to the garden. The sitting room has a ceiling beam and an inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove.
The dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room has bi-fold doors to the rear garden. It has a range of Shaker style units, including a central island with a breakfast bar. Integrated Neff appliances include an electric oven, a combination oven/microwave, an American style fridge/freezer, an induction hob with extractor over and a dishwasher. The separate utility room has a washing machine, tumble dryer and water softener, and access to the plant room and the ground floor shower room.
The galleried landing is split level. The master bedroom overlooks the rear garden and has a vaulted ceiling with authentic conservation roof lights. It is accessed via a dressing room with built-in oak wardrobes and has an en suite shower room. Two other bedrooms overlook the rear garden and both have en suite shower rooms. The other bedrooms have windows to the front and built-in storage. Bedroom three also has an en suite shower room.
The dwelling incorporates an ultra-efficient, expensive to install, but thereafter extremely cheap to run, ground source heat pump, thereby enabling extremely low energy costs. Electric bills per year average just £3,400.00 for everything to include heating, hot water, lighting, cooking etc. (There is no gas). Further, the system also qualifies for the government's Renewable Heat Incentive rebate, which equates to approximately £4,500.00 per year (paid back quarterly to the home owner) for the next five years. The dwellings' net energy cost to the occupier for the next five years will be virtually zero, even allowing for impending energy price rises.
