Ground Floor
Set back from the road, the front door opens into the porch, with tiled flooring useful for shedding muddy boots after a dog walk. Into the welcoming hall, there is a turning staircase with full-height ceilings, giving a lovely light ambience upon entering. Straight ahead are the good-sized dining room and the contemporary cloakroom, to the left is the study, followed by the kitchen/breakfast to the rear. Fitted in modern country-style units, a fantastic corner pantry provides plentiful storage, whilst granite-style worktops afford extensive surfaces. There is stunning stone-tiled flooring, attractive splashbacks, under-unit lighting, and an inset Rangemaster sink. Appliances include an integrated dishwasher and fridge, and there is space for a range with extractor. Through an archway is the utility room, matching the kitchen’s fittings, and with space for a washing machine, tumble dryer, and under-counter freezer. From the utility is the conservatory, an excellent addition with surrounding windows for outlooks over the flora. To the right of the house is the dual aspect lounge, where French doors open onto the patio for an indoor-outdoor atmosphere.

First Floor
With a deep airing cupboard, loft hatch and a pretty arched window, the landing leads to four double bedrooms and the family bathroom. There is a water softener for the whole house, and all showers are powered by pump from the airing cupboard. The master, second and third bedrooms all have built-in wardrobes, and the fourth—a small double—has a generous cupboard. There are views from the rear bedrooms across countryside and over the garden. The master benefits from an en suite wet room with underfloor heating and pristine period-style Burlington fixtures, and the family bathroom is in spotless condition, with wc, sink, and P-shaped bath with rainhead shower.

Converted above the garage, the annexe grants an ideal opportunity to house older relatives or teenage children, or perhaps as an Airbnb. Accessed via door from the third bedroom and spiral staircase from the kitchen, the annexe’s lounge, bedroom and en suite are all spacious and well-kept rooms. There is potential to add kitchen facilities to the lounge to separate even more self-sufficiently from the main house, and loft space could be further converted still, subject to planning.

The substantial west-facing rear garden is a real haven, set in different areas for all outdoor activities. A full-width patio delivers many places to sit and relax or dine al fresco, the raised patio to the back corner is prime for locating a swing chair as the owners have done, and the side paved courtyard is a delightful more shaded spot. The neat lawn is bordered by an abundance of thriving planting such as wisteria, magnolia, rose, lavender, etc., and there are both plum and apple trees. A gravel area to the side has the summerhouse for a hot tub, but would also make a fabulous outdoor bar, or even a self-contained home office. An adjacent greenhouse is perfect for the green-fingered, currently home to a wealth of tomato plants. A side gate leads from the rear to the block-paved driveway and lawned frontage. Both the driveway and double garage—which is opened via remote control—allow for ample off-road parking, and there is on-road parking to Stanbrook Way too.
