The accommodation is divided so that the reception rooms are to the front of the property with the bedrooms to the rear. The front door opens to the spacious and welcoming entrance hall off which is the dual aspect sitting room, a good size room with a feature stone chimney breast and fire place with wood-burning stove in-situ. There is plenty of light and far reaching views thanks to the large south facing window and the sliding patio doors that lead out to the garden. On the other side of the hall is the dining room, large enough to accommodate a generous family dining table, with a large window and rural views to the front.

A glazed door leads on to the kitchen which has a range of wall and floor units to three sides of the room with granite effect roll edge work surfaces. There is an inset stainless steel sink and drainer, inset gas hob with extractor over and an integrated eye level oven and grill, plus an integrated dishwasher and space for a freestanding fridge/freezer.

The access lane leads to a smart brick paved driveway providing plenty of parking. The detached double garage has twin doors and a side access door and window, with potential storage in the eaves.

A brick paved path extends from the drive to the front door and on to the side of the house and garden where it adjoins a paved terrace, also accessed from the sitting room.

The main garden is to the side of the house and measures around 30.5m x 21.5m (100’ x 70’), has a high degree of privacy and some wonderful far reaching views of the surrounding countryside to the moor. The paved terrace off the sitting room is an ideal spot for garden furniture, alfresco dining, and enjoying the last rays of sun at the end of the day.

The garden is mainly laid to lawn interspersed with flowerbeds, shrubs and small trees, including a Monkey Puzzle tree planted by the current owners. Towards the end of the garden is a summer house and a greenhouse with an electricity supply, beyond which is a further area of ‘secret’ garden somewhat hidden from view.
