Occupying a generous plot with gardens to both the front and rear, the property has been stylishly and sympathetically improved in recent years to create what is now a wonderful bespoke contemporary home full of light and modern features.
Approaching the house there is ample parking on a neat brick paved driveway for two/three cars and even a motorhome with a single garage beyond. To the side of the drive is pretty lawned garden which has beautifully planted rockery borders full of colour and fragrance.
The property has two principal entrance doors, one of which leads to the entrance hallway and a second that conveniently leads to a passageway that also connects to an internal door to the garage, to the kitchen and the sunroom beyond.
To the left-hand side of the property there is a chic decked seating area, perfect for al-fresco dining or indeed sheltering from the mid-day sun. Entering the house into the attractive hallway, the living room is to the left and extends to the full width of the property with a superb triple aspect a large picture window looking out over the stunning rear garden. For the winter months there is a feature fireplace that also provides a homely focal point to the room. To the side of the living room French doors lead through to superb garden room, which double as a formal dining room for family gatherings.
The kitchen is a sharp modern affair fitted with soft grey shaker style units and finished with a crisp white countertop. The kitchen features twin eye level ovens, a gas hob and some integrated appliances. A thoughtfully positioned opening above the countertop allows borrowed light from the living room to flood into the kitchen, and a side door leads out to the passageway to the garage.
To the front of the ground floor are two generous double bedrooms, and there is a third large single, which could also be utilised as a home office or study if desired. The ground floor bedrooms share use of a beautifully appointed shower room with contemporary fixtures.
Occupying the entire developed space on the first floor is the master bedroom, formally two separate bedrooms, our current vendors opened the two rooms into one exceptional suite, which includes a spacious dressing area, and a plush en-suite bathroom with an elegant clawfoot bath and traditional white suite. There is access to large loft area which has further potential to create extra rooms subject to the necessary consents.
To the rear of the house is the most exceptional landscaped garden with beautiful flower packed borders, a pretty raised ornamental pond, several discrete sitting areas, raised vegetable beds and a wonderfully positioned decked area at the rear of the garden that enjoys incredibly views over the stunning countryside to the rear as far as the Bristol Channel and on a clear day Wales in the distance. A sweet summer house occupies a lovely, shaded spot and shares the same exceptional views over the surrounding fields and countryside.
