This charming family home offers incredibly spacious and well configured accommodation throughout. The current owners have made a number of significant alterations which include a stunning kitchen family room extension and the conversion of the loft to provide an impressive double bedroom with vaulted ceilings and views over the rear gardens and beyond.

The property is set back from the road behind mature tree and hedge screening. Upon entering the property, the large entrance hall with tall ceilings sets the tone for the rest of this spacious family house. The ground floor accommodation is practically configured for modern family living with various separate spaces as well as a generous, bright, and airy kitchen family room. The kitchen family room is situated towards the rear of the property and provides a large sociable space which benefits from full height Velfac glazing and doors to two sides which overlooks and provides access to the garden and paved terrace. The kitchen itself is well appointed with a range of wall and base units, integrated appliances and is finished with bespoke solid walnut, butchers block style work surfaces.

The separate sitting room is another lovely room which is fitted with full height glazed bi-folding doors to the rear overlooking the rear garden and opening on to the paved terrace. On the ground floor there is also a separate dining room with a large bay window to the front of the property, a useful utility / boot room and a recently installed modern shower room.

Moving up to the first floor, a large stained-glass window to the side elevation floods the staircase and the large galleried landing with an abundance of natural light. Arranged radially off the landing, there are three double bedrooms, family bathroom and separate W.C. Additionally, the original fourth bedroom now provides a second hallway and makes way for stairs which lead up to the second-floor bedroom.

In keeping with the ground floor accommodation, all the bedrooms are particularly well- proportioned. The principal bedroom is situated to the rear of the property with full-height glazed doors overlooking the rear garden and providing access on to a modern balcony with stylish stainless steel and glass balustrade. This is a stunning bright room and is fitted with a range of bespoke storage solutions. The bedroom on the upper floor is another impressive space with Velux windows set into the vaulted ceiling and a window to the rear providing ample natural light. There is also a good amount of eaves storage and a particularly large walk-in attic space.

The gardens are incredibly generous and are well stocked with an abundance of mature shrubs and trees, including a mature specimen Acer. Tucked away towards the rear of the garden is a modern bespoke timber garden room with aluminium bi-folding doors and oak flooring. This would be ideally suited for use as a home office or studio and is fitted with electric and heating.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.

If other offers have been made on a property we aren't legally able to tell you what they are, but we may indicate if they were close to the asking price.
