Looking out onto picturesque countryside, this delightful detached four-bedroom property in a quiet cul-de-sac offers bright and spacious accommodation in turn-key condition. Approached via a low-maintenance paved front garden, you are welcomed into a bright entrance vestibule leading straight into the south-facing living room. Bathed in natural light from a large picture window overlooking the front of the property, this comfortable room enjoys a stylish interior décor of wood-inspired flooring, a calm colour palette of greens and whites, and a living flame fireplace set into a contemporary white mantle. Adjacent and leading out to the alfresco decking boasting breathtaking countryside views, is a light-filled design-led dining kitchen. Showcasing white handleless wall and floor units, smooth grey worktops and splashback, and high-spec integrated appliances that include a wine fridge, AEG grill, oven, microwave and a gas hob, the overall effect is one of understated sophistication. Along with the formal dining area, a breakfast bar comfortably seats two ensuring that this is the perfect place for family life and entertaining.
