The kitchen/dining will sit within this feature curved wall and is modern in design with floor cupboards and integrated appliances. The spacious sitting room will have a space to fit a wood burner and access, via double doors, to the gardens. There is also useful utility room and separate WC.
On the first-floor there is a superb principal bedroom with French doors onto a Juliet balcony, dressing room and en-suite shower room. The guest bedroom also benefits from an en-suite shower room, and there are two further double bedrooms and a family bath/shower room.
As Thatch is in the final stages of construction, there could be the opportunity to influence the final fittings and the decorative finish.
Thatch is approached from the road over a brick paved driveway which offers parking and gives access to the integral double garage with electric door. The garden principally lies to the south and will be hedged with laurel on the road side. It will be laid with lawn with a flagstone patio area.
