" Part of our Signature collection, this truly stunning 5 bedroom detached house dates back to the 1920s and was extended and remodelled in 2017 to form a fine home with over 4,000 sq ft. of accommodation. There is also garaging for 4 cars and a studio, all set in 2.5 acres close to the local priory, church and golf course.

The house benefits from replacement double glazing and gas fired central heating with a mix of radiators and under floor heating now faces into its own grounds with a private driveway coming off Church Hill. Two double garages and ample parking is found round the back with a studio above one of them. Also by the house is a heated swimming pool and plant room.

The house is entered from a front to back split level hall with oak floor and flows through into the reception hall where the oak staircase leads up to the different first floor levels. Beneath is a step down into a snug area. The sitting room has a central fireplace with wood burning stove, dual aspect and oak flooring. Double doors lead on to the dining room with bi fold doors out to both the terrace and swimming pool and also has oak flooring and further entrance from the hall.

A cloakroom provides a further toilet whilst there is a utility with wooden worksurfaces, butler sink with cupboard storage and plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer and tiled flooring.
