Upon approach its difficult not to be impressed by the charming, characterful façade this house offers with dark exposed brickwork and sloping tiled roof. The house sits a good 40ft (12.45m) back from the street protected by a huge electric gated driveway offering plenty of space for several cars which is surrounded by borders of mature plants and shrubs. A couple of steps lead to a glass pane front porch handy for leaving wet shoes, coats and brollies.

Upon entry there is wide entrance hall with beautifully laid thick limestone tiles that runs seamlessly through most of the ground floor and into the kitchen living room at the rear. The hallway houses the staircase with storage underneath and access to a stylish downstairs cloakroom with blue gloss metro tiles and contemporary wash hand basin accompanied by a wall mounted toilet.

There is a cosy reception room at the front of the house that is full of character and charm, the floors are clad in solid bleached Oak Parquet flooring, there is a working fireplace as a centrepiece with fitted cupboards and shelving in the alcoves, a contemporary column radiator that sits under the window and exposed timber beams in the ceiling.

Through the door at the end of the hallway is the kitchen living room which has the wow factor in abundance! As soon as the door opens there is an immediate feeling of space and light from this vast open plan space. Several skylights overhead, floor to ceiling glazing and a huge glass sliding door at the rear draws natural light in from the SOUTH facing aspect. The Limestone tiled flooring has underfloor heating for additional comfort and they also reflect the light amplifying the feeling of space.

The kitchen is set to the left upon entry, the units of which are a timeless classic Shaker style with plenty of wall and base mounted cupboards and white marble worktops. There is a large central island housing a double sink with a boiling hot water tap and a breakfast bar on far side, two stylish pendant lights hang from the ceiling above an there is lots of storage underneath. The 5-ring gas hob is set within the far wall with a huge single piece of marble as a splash back, an extractor hood above which is flush to the ceiling and found underneath are large pan draws. The wall to the side is filled with floor to ceiling cupboards, one of which is a double pantry and the oven, grill and microwave are all integrated with space for a large double American fridge freezer. Two large skylights above fill this area with natural light and there is a glass patio door that lead to the garden. Tucked around the side is a very handy utility area for the washing machine, drier and boiler, there is a large butler sink that sits under a window facing the front of the house and a patio door that leads to the side return.

There is a lounge area sits just in front of the sliding glass doors leading to the garden where there is plenty of space for a large sofa in front of a wall mounted TV and three large skylights above that draw in the natural light.

Up a couple of steps is a nice cosy dining area that leads back round to the hallway and sits adjacent to the reception room at the front, there is a exposed brick fireplace with built in cupboards and shelving in the alcoves.

The huge sliding doors frames the rear garden like a picture and when fully opened extends the kitchen living room into the garden. There is a large natural stone patio nearest to the house that compliments the Limestone floors internally, the patio wraps around the side of the house, a perfect spot for summer barbeques and al fresco dining. Beyond this is a large lawn that is bordered by mature plants, shrubs and trees. At the far end of the garden is another patio area where there is a brick-built BBQ and a shed.
