As you enter, you immediately feel the extra width and ceiling height of this substantial family home, boasting a tremendous sense of light and volume. To your left as you enter, is a generous reception room, currently used as a formal dining room, with a bay window overlooking the patio to the front of the house. To the rear, is the very large kitchen/reception room which measures approximately 25ft in length with ample room to host a dining space, a family room along with the well-equipped kitchen itself. Through double French doors you step into the bright 35ft garden with well-established beds, trees and plants. The garden has the added benefit that it can be accessed by car via Lavender Walk and the owner has built a substantial brick outbuilding to the rear. In addition, on the ground floor, there is a good size and very useful utility and cloakroom.
To the front of the first floor, you find a stunning and very large bedroom that is currently being used by the owners as a library. The generous proportions and wide bay window (which leads onto a Juliette balcony), make an exceptional and flexible living space. Overlooking the garden is the enormous principal bedroom suite which benefits from ample fitted wardrobes and an impressive en suite bathroom with a separate shower.
On the top floor there is a another exceptionally large double bedroom to the front with fitted storage and an en suite shower room. Adjacent is a significant family bathroom, again with separate bath and shower. To the rear you find another two double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes that overlook the garden, with one of them having direct access to a terrace.
