Porch, Hallway & Receptions
Wonderfully light porch approached via a pair of timber entrance doors. Five arched windows overlooking the grounds and marble floor.

The spacious hallway features a central, sweeping staircase which rises to a galleried landing and doors lead to the principal reception rooms and kitchen / breakfast room.

The first of two very well proportioned reception rooms has patio doors leading to the pool area and a floor to ceiling stone fireplace. Further doors lead to a side storeroom and lobby / cloakroom.

The significantly proportioned, dual aspect, formal dining room also has sliding patio doors which open onto the garden, an Adam style fireplace and pair of arched doors which lead to the hallway.

Kitchen, Breakfast Room & Utility Room
A sizeable kitchen with generous space for a breakfast table and chairs.

Fitted with extensive wall and base units, work surfaces, breakfast bar and two separate sink units.

Built in 'Neff' double oven and 5 ring electric hob with fitted extractor over.

Windows, to the side and rear, overlooking the garden and door to the rear utility room.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms.
The first of 5 bedrooms are located off the galleried landing.

Both are fabulously proportioned, have en-suite bathrooms and feature a range of built in bedroom furniture.

A sizeable study, with panelled walls, provides a link to the northern wing of the first floor which hosts a further 3 bedrooms, family bathroom and WC.

Electric gates provide access to the tarmac driveway which in turn leads to a very large forecourt and double garage, bordered by classic balustrading and extensive front garden.

The garden, with mature plants, shrubs and trees wraps around the house and to the rear, meets a flagstone sun terrace which adjoins the pool area.

The heated pool is c.40ft long x 18ft wide, surrounded by a non slip surface and has a pleasant, westerly aspect.

A boiler room houses the necessary boiler, pumps and ancillary heating equipment.
