The Chocolate Box is a detached and spacious family home which benefits from having been extensively refurbished by the current owners with three of the four en-suites being new, together with having had the exterior and interior recently painted. The house offers both impressive and generous reception space for entertaining and family living. On entering, there is a spacious vestibule with a tiled floor and two cupboards with a wc within the adjacent hall.
The kitchen, utility and boot room have been refurbished with newly installed fittings within the last 10 months. The breakfasting kitchen, which has been modernised with a good range of tasteful storage units is complimented with a granite work surface and tanzanite stone floor. There is a central island which acts as a breakfast bar and integrated appliances include a 5 ring AEG electric hob, microwave, oven, dishwasher, full sized fridge, freezer and wine cooler. There are doors leading onto a decked area within the garden and the dual aspect makes it a naturally light room. With ample space for a dining table and a walk in cupboard, the kitchen is a functional room. The adjacent utility has a sink, wine cooler (about 10 months old), plumbing for a washing machine and a range of wall and base units. The boot room with more storage capacity provides garden access.
There is a triple aspect sitting room with engineered oak flooring and a multi-fuel stove installed about 10 months ago. Doors lead into a semi-enclosed decked garden room which is open onto the garden on the south-east elevation. The dining room, with a dual aspect, good sized windows and direct garden access provides additional entertaining space where views onto the gardens can be enjoyed.
