Description

A substantial and beautifully presented home extending to 2,068 square feet close to a Nature Reserve offered with no forward chain. Arranged over three floors, the property offers spacious living for a modern household which enables a greater degree of flexibility and versatility for meeting the needs of all members of the family and for working from home which, for most of us, is becoming a reality. Built by Taylor Wimpy, the original home has been significantly improved by the present owners with the addition of Amitco flooring, an electric car recharging point (located on the driveway), an upgraded kitchen with additional cupboard for housing eye level oven and microwave, low voltage downlights, and Cat 5 cabling to complement the modern heating and air-recovery system. Outside there is a private garden which has been well stocked with mature trees, hedging and planting offering a good degree of privacy. The driveway offers parking for three cars in addition to a good-sized single garage with eaves storage.
