For ease of maintenance the external render has been coated with special algae protection paint; new double glazed windows were installed in 2013, there is an oil fired central heating and the property receives excellent Broadband.
Well positioned within the plot, the house is set back from the lane with a deep front garden, plenty of private parking, including discreet side parking for a caravan, motorhome or horsebox etc, in addition to the large Double Garage. The garage is integral to the house and offers huge potential to convert to further accommodation if required (subject to the necessary consents).

The Kitchen/Breakfast Room has been carefully arranged to create a dining area with a large breakfast bar at one end and the installation of double doors to the garden, makes for a light and bright room in which to work.

Clipped hedging on the boundary provides privacy and a gravelled drive leads to the front and side of the property, offering excellent private parking. A beautiful mellow brick and flint wall borders the front garden and forms an attractive frontage to the property, with areas of lawn, some with wildflower planting, interspersed with mature ornamental trees.
The Garden to the rear of the house is outstanding. Beautifully landscaped and exceptionally well maintained it provides a wonderfully verdant backdrop and glorious outlook.

Shaped herbaceous beds, planted with many varieties of beautiful roses and blooms dissect the lawn, drawing the eye to the end of the garden where mature fruit trees stud a further area of lawn in front of the substantial Garden Room/Studio A potting shed and greenhouse are tucked to the side and a gravelled path leads back up to the house from the Garden Room, ensuring an accessible and dry under-foot journey from door to door.
