Upstairs the first floor landing leads to two double bedrooms and a bathroom which has been neutrally decorated with a white suite with a shower over the bath and a console unit with integrated sink and toilet. Both bedrooms look out over the lovely garden with the master bedroom also having fitted wardrobes. The far reaching views from the upstairs landing are simply stunning and are a must see.. There is double glazing throughout the property and the heating system has been recently upgraded with a new Grant boiler and new radiators.

The huge driveway, which has been newly paved offers off-road parking for up to 6 cars and gates have been installed to provide security. A footpath which meanders through the pretty front garden is flanked by a stunning array of colourful flowers and leads to the front door. The delightful back garden which is fully enclosed is south west facing and has been lovingly cared for and improved by the current owners. A small patio to the immediate rear of the house has direct access from the living/dining room and a further raised seating area provides a wonderful spot to soak up the sunshine or for some al fresco entertaining. There is a good sized area of lawn with borders filled with a variety of plants and shrubs and a number of fruit trees including apple, plum, fig and cherry. There is a new greenhouse and an enclosed vegetable patch at the rear, with two timber sheds providing handy outside storage space.
