We've distracted you from your purpose haven't we! Step back and look at the rooms, there are plenty of them and all are unique. The sitting room stands out straight away, look at the built-in cupboard beside the fireplace, lovely isn't it. Walk into the bay; why is it a fraction narrower than the main room? Pop back to the hallway and you'll realise why, nothing ground breaking but just a little detail that helps ensure this home will be memorable, fun.
The glass fan light panels between the dining room and garden room will captivate, don't forget to look around you, to get a sense of the space here and imagine time spent enjoying the room, be it for a quiet personal moment or with friends and your family.
This is somewhere that has grown with the owners and their family.
A ground floor extension has added a room that can be a bedroom, with a wet room off it, this becomes a perfect place for a family member who needs such great facilities and, for anyone who may work from home, it may become a treatment room or an office space if you wanted, it's close to the kettle if that is how you use it.

Outside, the garden is somewhere you'll enjoy too, a patio area to sit and chat, friends can come through the side gate and join you.
Colour will welcome the seasons as plants appear and unfurl their leaves and petals through the year. There's space for a couple of nice sheds at the bottom of the garden, all important storage and work space if you want to make use of it.
