The strikingly modern kitchen features a range o pale grey cupboards topped with white granite worktops. A five-ring gas hob is fitted, as is an extractor hood and eye-level electric oven and grill.

Also to the rear, is a covered porch enabling weather-protected access to the garage and garden room.


Upstairs there are four bedrooms. Attached to the main bedroom is a sizeable en-suite. The room is currently fitted with a bath, basin, and WC. But there is enough room in the suite for the addition of a shower, should the new owners prefer. The family bathroom also offers a white suite of WC, basin and large shower.


The rear of the garden is block-paved with plenty of room for patio-furniture. The space flows around to the side garden. Here there is ample space to park two or three vehicles—or a large caravan. To the side is a small lawned-area bordered by a few mature shrubs.
