Property description

A block paved pathway leads up to the recessed entrance porch and to the large glass paned front door. Step inside and you are immediately struck by the high ceilings and fabulous use of natural light. From the entrance hall you enter the magnificent kitchen, dining and family room with vaulted ceiling and velux roof lights. Floor to ceiling patio doors open onto an extensive decked area with far reaching views to Ludlow and beyond. All windows and doors are double glazed PVCu in a light oak finish.

The modern kitchen units are in an attractive grey/green colour scheme with Indian slate tiling offering a natural and colourful backdrop. Granite countertops sparkle around the inset double sink and on the central island unit. There is space for a large range cooker. The kitchen units have deep pan drawers and there is a fitted dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Within this kitchen / dining room the current owners also have a ten seat dining table and three seat sofa so it's the ideal space to entertain whilst preparing food and is the heart of the home.

Moving through the property there's an inner hall with quiet space for reading and contemplation. The wood burning stove in this space has been recently fitted and provides a central focal point but with LPG central heating radiators it is rarely needed for anything other than to create a cosy ambience. Access to the lounge is from this area; a comfortable room with space for a large wall mounted TV and windows overlooking the front garden. There's a media cupboard situated to the LH of the TV.

Beyond the inner hall is a light and airy reception hall from which the stairs, family bathroom, and bedrooms are accessed. The main bedroom with feature stained glass brick wall uses bedroom 4 as a dressing room but could easily be converted back to a two bedroom arrangement, although as currently set-up could provide ideal nursery space. Double bedroom 2 is also accessed from the hall.

A bespoke oak staircase rises from the hall to a suite with its own reception landing/study area and then bedroom three, a further double, with a vaulted ceiling and velux to front aspect.

There is a shower room and a utility room leading off the main entrance hall.

Planning permission was granted for a further extension off bedroom 1 which would provide conservatory and en-suite bedroom space.

Power and lights are fitted and it's a perfect outdoor dining and entertaining space. Continue around to the rear garden and you'll find fruit trees, composting area and a 16ft x 10ft greenhouse with lighting and power. Return towards the house past the Oak Framed double-bay barn/garage 5.97m x 5.03m and cross the drive to the Rose Garden.
