A balcony nestles atop the double garage and is accessible from both the sitting room and the master bedroom so is ideal for enjoying that first coffee of the day or that relaxing summer evening drink taking in the stunning views.The spacious accommodation includes three double bedrooms, with the master bedroom being en-suite. The generous sitting room and good sized dining room allow much scope for family events and entertaining friends, whilst a large kitchen and separate utility room provide for the practical side of life. A lovely family bathroom completes the ground floor accommodation.A timber staircase leads up to the attic floor which comprises two large spaces, one of which is already lined with plasterboard and fully floored. There is a building warrant in place for conversion to en-suite accommodation. The larger of the two spaces could form a master suite with room for bedroom, dressing room and en-suite bathroom. The other room would form a further bedroom or could be another reception room or large home office.In essence, this is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a fully functioning generous family home, in a sought after location, with scope to extend the accommodation even further.ACCOMMODATION Ground Floor: Entrance Vestibule.
