The sitting room is also well-proportioned with a bay window and fireplace with brick surround. The dining room is a handsome room with large windows and French doors onto the garden and adjoins the kitchen.

At one end of the hall is a study and at the other is a butler’s pantry. The kitchen/breakfast room has fitted wall, floor and display units by Smallbone of Devizes with Corian worktops and integrated appliances that include double electric oven, gas hob, dishwasher and fridge. From the breakfast area a glazed door opens to a loggia providing a wonderful sheltered seating area. Beyond the kitchen is a large utility room with fitted cupboards, sink, adjoining boiler room and pantry and a side door to a courtyard.

The first floor landing is light and airy, with a loft hatch and ladder, walk-in airing cupboard and store room. The principal bedroom is a wonderful size with magnificent bow window overlooking the garden and a wall of fitted wardrobes. There are 4 further bedrooms, most of which have fitted wardrobes or cupboards, a shower room and a family bathroom with tiled floor, paneled bath, WC and bidet.

Lawn wraps around the southern end of the house to the main garden at the rear, where there is a terrace running along the back of the house and under the loggia. Steps lead from the terrace onto a further expanse of lawn, which is bordered by mature rhododendrons that extend to a depth of about 20m to the boundary fence. On the northern end of the garden is a hedge dividing off a children’s play area.
