An inner hall, with cloakroom and wc, leads to a utility room, a downstairs shower room and an impressive open plan living kitchen with walnut-fronted units, granite worktops, four-ring induction hob, microwave and dishwasher.

Stairs rise to a half-landing which leads to the master bedroom suite, with refurbished bathroom featuring a white suite with double-ended bath and a travertine tiled floor.

Stairs continue to the first-floor landing off which are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom with white Vernon Tut-bury suite.

Outside, twin timber gates open to a long driveway which leads to a rear courtyard with ample parking space and access to a double garage with plastered and carpeted loft room.

The garden lies primarily to the side of the house, featuring a large lawn with well-stocked beds, borders and a stone flagged patio with barbeque and summer house.
