Well presented throughout, this thoughtfully extended semi-detached home in the heart of the village of Greatfield combines modern living within a period property packed with character throughout.

With dual aspect windows the generously proportioned sitting room offers a welcoming feel, while the exposed brick chimney breast and log burner add plenty of charm and character. The log burner provides a dual aspect and is shared with the family room with feature beam and exposed timber flooring. The superb kitchen and open plan dining room links these two reception rooms and creates a sociable space. Well appointed with tasteful Shaker-style cabinets, solid wood counter tops, Space for range cooker and butler sink. The dining area, kitchen area and both reception rooms benefit from under floor heating and double glazed double doors open onto the garden from the dining area. A full bathroom, separate laundry room and a potential study space complete the ground floor.

There are four further bedrooms, three of which are double rooms and one benefitting from an extensive range of fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom comprises deep panelled bath, full width sink, and close coupled w.c.

Step out from the dining room into the first part of the rear garden which is well enclosed and where mature flowerbed borders, a raised pond and with pebbled and paved patios can be found. There are two substantial children's playhouses and gated access to the side lane.
