DESCRIPTION
Highfield House is a stunning architect designed property which was completed in 2011. Careful consideration was given to making the most of the breath-taking 360 degree views, from its elevated position at the top of the hill, and this has certainly been worthwhile. Bay windows in the Kitchen and first floor Master Bedroom add floor space internally and add a sense of grandeur externally. The open plan Kitchen/Dining Room also has French Doors opening out on to a patio area, adding more natural light to this modern and spacious family hub. Cooking facilities are provided by a Rangemaster 110 electric cooker with a five ring gas hob, and the American style fridge/freezer will remain in situ. The central island/breakfast bar has storage space, electrical points and a fitted wine chiller. The Sitting Room has a vaulted ceiling, an abundance of natural light and an electric fire inset in to the wall, and the Living Room has corner windows and a wood burning stove, to add extra warmth, if required.

A solid oak staircase takes you to the first floor, with four Bedrooms, family Bathroom and walk in linen cupboard. In addition the Master Bedroom opens in to a Dressing Room with shelves and hanging space, which opens directly in to the en-suite bathroom, with a deluge power shower.
Highfield House sits under a slate roof and is double glazed throughout. There is an oil fired central heating system powered by a Worcester Greenstar boiler situated in the Utility Room, and underfloor heating at ground floor level.

This property provides a rare opportunity to acquire an attractive family home with the addition of equestrian facilities and land, either for personal use or providing an income source through Livery.
