THE AGENT SAYS...
Highcroft is an impressive family home, set back and elevated from the road, with garden on all sides so you can follow (or hide from!) the sun. A two storey extension has created spacious living accommodation with the generous kitchen/dining room a particular feature. In addition, the owners have added some lovely details to give this modern property character, notably the impressive brick fireplace in the sitting room. Upstairs there is a large family bathroom and in addition two of the double rooms have en-suite facilities - perfect if youre fighting your teenagers for the bathroom in the morning or have regular overnight guests.
The front door opens into a useful vestibule which protects the entrance hall from the elements. The hall is bright and spacious with a spindle staircase rising to the first floor that has a WC tucked underneath. Off the hall is the spacious sitting room which has a superb brick fireplace with oak mantel beam and wood burning stove, and an exposed timber in the ceiling. Double doors open to the conservatory which itself opens to the garden. At the rear is the generous kitchen diner which has lovely proportions, being almost square. There is an abundance of preparation and storage space, a large range cooker, full height freezer and fridge and ample space for a family dining table. Half-glazed doors to the garden on each side and two windows only increase the light and airy feel of this room. Off the kitchen is a good-sized utility, handily located next to one of the entrance doors.
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, two of which are en-suite (one with shower and one with bath). The family bathroom has a bath and separate shower and there is abundant storage on the landing.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
A drive leads up the side of the property to a parking area, from where there are steps to the front door. At the front, wide, shallow steps lead across the manicured lawn to the entrance, with a very attractive border of evergreens that really set off the house. The enclosed rear garden (accessible from the side) wraps around the property and has a range of zones. The level lawn has a raised patio area behind with terraced steps to one side. Hidden above this is a fenced vegetable plot. The conservatory stands on a gravelled area where there is a raised bed, large shed and the oil tank.
