Stepping through the porch, you enter a generously spacious hallway adorned with parquet flooring. This hallway introduces you to the accommodation through various doors and reveals a practical storage cupboard. To the left, an astonishing open-plan kitchen and family room unfolds. The dining area, graced by a large bay window, offers room for a substantial eight-seater dining table.

The kitchen, positioned at the rear, showcases contemporary wall and base units incorporating a breakfast bar. A traditional AGA is seamlessly blended between the units. Integrated appliances include a microwave and dishwasher. There is ample space within the kitchen cabinet recess to house an American style fridge freezer. Recessed ceiling spotlights illuminate the room while Karndean flooring ties the space together.

Illuminated by a generous front-facing bay window and recessed ceiling spotlights, this room exudes warmth. A cleverly engineered log burner, designed for rear loading and minimal mess, adds to the ambiance.

A covered sunken seating area, equipped with a TV and heating, creates a delightful atmosphere for al fresco dining. The front garden is equally impressive, featuring vast lawns and a private lake, creating a picturesque setting.

The lawned gardens are a delight, featuring manicured lawns, specimen trees, shrubbery and topiary, all meticulously maintained; two robotic lawn mowers are included in the sale price to help maintain the lawns. A gravelled garden area adjacent to the patio boasts an ornamental pond with a fountain, strategically placed to draw attention across the garden.
