The Property
This appealing property was built circa 1934 in a retro Tudorbethan style, with half-timbered elevations, bow windows and a wealth of herringbone oak parquet flooring internally.

The property has since been extended, now offering a spacious family home with extensive reception accommodation and sits within large private gardens with the principal lawns being south facing.

The Accommodation
A recessed entrance gives way to a panelled oak front door opening into a welcoming central reception hall with access to a shower room with WC and cloaks room.

To the front of the property is a well-proportioned dining room with exposed wood parquet flooring, a fireplace with decorative surround and dual aspects providing plenty of natural daylight. Adjoining the dining room with access through bi-fold doors is the principal reception room also featuring exposed parquet flooring, a hole in the wall cassette gas fireplace and sliding patio doors affording beautiful views and access to the rear garden. Also located to the front of the property is a large study which would equally suit as a family games room.

At the heart of the property is the kitchen with adjoining breakfast room, which could be incorporated with the large adjoining utility room, to create a spacious family kitchen. The kitchen itself is fitted with a range of cabinets under granite work surfaces with appliances including a Rangemaster gas cooker with canopy extractor hood and integral dishwasher and fridge. The kitchen benefits from a wonderful walk-in pantry. The side vestibule provides access to a large utility room housing the central heating boiler, cloaks storage and plumbing for laundry appliances, with an adjoining separate WC.

Adjacent to the breakfast kitchen is the snug and to the rear of the breakfast room double doors open into a substantial timber framed and partially double-glazed conservatory with twin French doors and views to the established rear gardens.

Occupying the eastern wing of the ground floor accommodation is a large, covered walkway ideal as a general storeroom with double doors to the front and rear elevation, and a single doorway opening into a double garage with power and lighting and attractive hardwood panel sliding doors.

An elegant turned staircase rises to the first-floor landing providing access to all four double bedrooms, three of which enjoy bespoke fitted wardrobes. The large family bathroom enjoys a corner bath with thermostatic shower over, "his and hers" vanity sink unit with illuminated mirror above, a bidet and WC.

The property sits behind a mature and neatly clipped beech hedge giving privacy from the avenue with double metal gates giving access onto a substantial gravelled driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles in turn leading to the double garage. To the front of the property is a lawned garden to one side, fringed with deep well-stocked borders with rhododendrons, bamboo, rose and an impressive, clipped yew.

The principal gardens sit to the rear with a southerly aspect, mainly laid to lawn with a natural stone paved terrace to the rear, and an ornamental pond with adjoining rockery with water feature. The gardens are well-established with deep borders with an additional "secret" garden accessed via a pergola. This ancillary garden features a mature apple tree and a garden shed with compost area.
