The Property

Built in 2001, this excellent family home has rendered elevations with stone dressing and window surrounds, beneath a tile covered roof. The wooden windows have double glazed units and a particular feature is the large south facing garden which adjoins fields at the rear. The front façade belies the space on offer which is well proportioned throughout.

The Accommodation

Canopy porch and front door leading into a wood floored hall. To the left is the family room, and, on the right is the study, an excellent vantage point. Next door is the utility room with a second sink, space for under counter appliances and the boiler. Beyond is the cloakroom, and then the good size sitting room, which has a fitted log burner and overlooks the rear garden. The kitchen/breakfast room next door again has access to the garden and a good range of units with a built-in electric double oven, hob and extractor over. The fridge, freezer and dishwasher are all integrated. The kitchen and utility both have tiled floors. On the first floor there is a generous landing, off which are four double bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes. The main bedroom overlooks the rear garden, and has an en suite shower. The family bathroom has a separate shower and, from bedroom four, there is access to the part boarded loft with light.


The shared tarmac drive serves three properties, one at the front and two at the rear, with May House owning the grass on the left hand side of the drive. There are gravelled parking areas both sides of the house, with the enclosed oil tank to the left, where there is also gated access past the side of the house to the rear garden. Here there is a shed, log store and tap. Adjoining the back of the house is a paved terrace with a large expanse of lawn enclosed by hedging and fencing. There are a variety of mature shrubs, a silver birch and apple tree. A second shed is screened by trellis and there is a further decked seating area on the left hand side, ideally positioned for enjoying the setting sun. Beyond the garden are fields providing a lovely open aspect.
