Property Ref: 50373


This bright & incredibly spacious Edwardian character residence, recently decorated in neutral tones throughout, was built circa 1910 & has since been carefully enlarged to provide bright, highly versatile living space arranged on 3 levels with an element of open plan - superb for the growing family with potential to create a self contained annexe. The well presented & adaptable accommodation is approached via a welcoming entrance hall with staircase that in turn leads to 2 comfortable reception rooms & fabulous garden room opening to a stunning 25' kitchen/family room with extensive oak panelled units & cut granite working surfaces. There is a useful laundry room, sizeable family/play/ fitness room currently used as a 4th bedroom and spacious ground floor shower room. The first floor allows for 3 lovely bedrooms, modern family bathroom & timber staircase to an attic room, currently used as an office but could provide for a 5th bedroom area if required. A particular feature is the attractive & meticulously stocked westerly facing rear garden with wildlife pond & waterfall, upper & lower patios & substantial double skinned & insulated studio. The property is within easy reach of the mainline rail link to London Kings Cross and the village high street & doctors surgery.
