Approach the property via a landscaped brick paved driveway where there are several steps down to the main front door of the property into the welcoming entrance hallway, with its period style tiled flooring. From here, you can access bedroom five which can alternatively be used as reception room three, a generous sized room with working wooden shutters and oak flooring.

Head up the stairs to the first-floor landing with its part oak and part stone tiled floor, from where you can access the sitting room and family room. The sitting room is a real feature space, both elegant and impressive with many inbuilt features, including high ceilings, cornicing and an ornate ceiling rose, picture rail, large floor to ceiling double glazed windows to front with working wooden shutters, an attractive brushed steel period style fireplace with gas coal effect fire, marble surround with granite hearth, and oak flooring.

The family room is a little more relaxed and cosy, with two large parched feature recesses with built in shelving either side of the fireplace with a welcoming wood burning stove, and a door through to a cloakroom/utility and wide wall opening leading through to the kitchen/breakfast room.

The kitchen/breakfast room is also a show-stopper, offering a recently fitted (2011) contemporary kitchen provided and installed by John Lewis of Hungerford comprising base and eye level cupboards and drawers with part marble and part wood worktop over, an integrated Neff double oven and microwave, inset 4 ring gas hob with cylindrical extractor tube over, appliance space and plumbing for American style fridge/freezer, integrated dishwasher, pan drawers, breakfast bar area, ample space for dining table, stone flooring with under floor heating – to name just a few of its features. The space is incredibly bright thanks to four large Velux skylight windows in addition to triple bifold doors out to the garden.

Head up to the first-floor landing to access bedrooms one and two. Bedroom one offers a pleasant cityscape view with a tiled original fireplace and access to a recently refurbished en-suite bathroom with a freestanding bath. Bedroom two is also generous, complete also with its own fireplace and peaceful views over the garden.
The second-floor landing provides access to bedrooms three and four, with bedroom three providing panoramic rooftop views and bedroom four overlooking the garden. A family bathroom also sits just off the landing, recently refitted and comprising a fired earth white suite with a claw foot bath.

Outside, the property benefits from a tastefully landscaped and generous level garden with a seating area, large lawned sections and borders containing various plants, shrubs and trees leading to a feature circular seating area, as well as storage thanks to two handy gardens sheds.
