An attractive family home in an peaceful development consisting of four detached homes; built in 1989 of brick elevations under a pitched clay tiled roof. It is evident that the current owners have continued to improve the property during their occupancy including replacing UPVC windows throughout, a new Country Image kitchen and bathrooms.
The glazed front door leads into an entrance hall with staircase and a large useful understairs cupboard. All rooms lead off the hallway including the light and airy sitting room with a large bay-style window overlooking the front garden and a brick built fireplace with inset gas fire. Double, glazed doors open into the dining room leading to sliding doors to the conservatory allowing the natural light to flood in with access to the rear garden. The stylish Country Image kitchen/breakfast room has a comprehensive range of oak floor and wall units with granite worktops, tiled splashbacks, exposed brickwork to one wall and ceramic tiled flooring. Integrated appliances include a large style fridge/freezer and Neff washing machine, dishwasher, electric oven and gas hob. To complete the ground floor accommodation is a useful study with range of fitted shelves and cupboard and a recently updated cloakroom.
A light and airy galleried landing leads to the four bedrooms. The master bedroom affords wonderful views over the landscaped gardens and onto open fields. There is a comprehensive range of Country Image fitted wardrobes with an arched doorway leading to a refurbished en-suite bathroom. The three further bedrooms all have fitted wardrobes with a good sized family bathroom.
Approaching the property via the gravel driveway, there is space for two cars leading on to the double garage, with power and lighting and a pair of up and over doors. There is a door leading to a covered passageway and this has access to the front, rear and kitchen.
The rear gardens are a particular feature, landscaped by a local gardener; they are gently sloping with specimen shrubs, flower borders and mature trees. From the conservatory is a large paved terrace with steps, bordered by raised flowerbeds, to another circular terraced area providing ideal sitting area. The remaining garden is laid to sweeping lawns with a further seating area to the top right hand corner affording views over the village.
Highfields has a delightfully private village location with a pleasant aspect to the front to woodland and delightful rural views to the rear. The Winterborne River abuts the lane with an attractive Beech hedge providing privacy.
