The Property
Built in 1992, and in the same ownership since since 1999, the current owners have much improved and enlarged this excellent family home. There is ample parking and a good sized rear garden bordering the river.

The Accommodation
Wide open porch with front door leading into a hall with returning staircase to the first floor, and a cupboard under. On the left is a cloakroom, with the study next door which has an excellent vantage overlooking the driveway. The sitting room at the rear has a stone fireplace with multi-fuel burner and a fitted bookcase with cleverly concealed TV. Next door is the kitchen/breakfast room with double doors leading onto the rear terrace. The kitchen has a good range of units including built-in electric oven and grill, a gas hob and extractor over. The dishwasher and fridge are integrated and opening off leads to an additional preparation area and door to the second sitting room at the front. This has two large windows and would make an excellent playroom for younger children. Adjacent is the utility room with gas boiler, fitted water softener and door to a covered side area. On the generous first floor landing there is an airing cupboard with hot water cylinder and pump for the showers. A hatch and ladder lead to a large loft space that has potential for conversion if required. The main bedroom at the rear has extensive fitted wardrobes and a large en suite bathroom with a separate shower. The second bedroom is dual aspect with built-in wardrobe and eaves storage. There are two further double bedrooms both with built-in storage. The large family bathroom has a generous separate shower. Both bathrooms have electric underfloor heating.

The gated entrance leads to a tarmac drive with parking and turning space for 3 or more cars. Adjacent to the garage is a large metal security shed, ideal for bikes etc, screened by a hedge. To the right of the house a gate leads to a useful covered area accessed from the utility room door. This has power, light, a hosepipe reel and a small wooden tool shed. A raised paved terrace with balustrading adjoins the dining area. The rear garden is enclosed by beech hedging and has numerous trees, including apple and cherry. There are three raised beds and a fence screening off the bottom end of the garden where there is also a wooden garden shed. The far end of the garden adjoins the river and has a small jetty for launching canoes and the like.
