The room also benefits from a dining area with access to a storage cupboard, with double glazed Velux rooflights and a feature exposed chimney with open fire. There is wood effect flooring throughout.
On this level you will find bedroom three; a good size double room with a double glazed window with plantation shutters to the front enjoying a pleasant aspect. From here you can also access the loft space which offers ample storage.
Descending to the lower ground floor, at the foot of the stairwell is a large office area, leading off to two further bedrooms; both doubles offering generous space and plenty of natural light through double glazed windows with plantation shutters. The second bedroom benefits from built-in wardrobes and the master benefits from a classic en-suite shower room comprising a tiled shower cubicle, low-level WC, bidet and wash hand basin with a wall mounted mirror above.

There is also a heated towel rail, extractor fan, wall mounted mirror and further storage alongside a double-glazed window.
At the end of the cul-de-sac you will find the garage with an up and over door and space to park one vehicle in front. From here you enter the fabulous, woodland like, front garden through a wrought iron gate and follow a meandering brick paved pathway to the front door. The pathway loops around the entire property and flows through the gently sloping gardens, which are a haven for wildlife with an array of mature trees and flowers. There are several seating areas to the front and rear of the property, where the gardens and wilderness can be enjoyed. There is also a fabulous timber summer house with power and light which is currently being used as a jacuzzi room; a log store; and two pedestrian gates which enable access to the lovely neighbouring walks and incredible views.
