13.5m² Family bathroom with bath, shower cubicle, sink, towel radiator and separate W.C.

14m² Downstairs hall with interior access to two cellar rooms (measuring 40m²)

The house has central heating throughout.

The house layout is versatile and could be suitable for annex accommodation or alternative room usage.

Outside are two eating terraces and access to the 13.5m² summer kitchen with fitted units and a sink.

8m² boiler room, 13.5m² pool pump house and two 8m² garden furniture stores are all at garden level.

The garden is approximately 800m² and has a 50m³, kidney-shaped, heated swimming pool with surrounding patio area.

Unattached from the property is a 2300m² (approx.) plot of woodland also included in the price.

You enter the property from the street with steps up to a glazed front door opening into a large 38.25m², tiled kitchen/diner with attractive original features including stone apparent walls, exposed beams, stone sink, potager cupboard and a tall attractive fireplace with cast iron back-plate. To the right hand side is a kitchen area which has substantial fitted units in a country kitchen style with a ceramic butler sink and a chunky elm breakfast bar. The kitchen has a split-level cooker and plumbing for a dishwasher. To the left hand side of the room is a glazed back door onto the private garden with an attractive interior metal grill. The wooden quarter turn staircase leads up to the 21m² carpeted mezzanine room which has 2 windows and is currently used as a bedroom. A Velux is set into the pine lambris ceiling and the main beams are exposed.

From the kitchen, three steps take you up to a hallway which leads you to a 15.5m² carpeted bedroom with lambris ceiling. Off the hallway is also a 10m² shower room with a tiled floor, large walk in shower, storage cupboard and a contemporary vanity unit with glass sink. The W.C is separate. At the end of the hall a staircase with nautical rope handrail takes you downstairs to the right and straight ahead are five steps leading to a carpeted lounge room measuring 24m² with an extra 8m² of space into the eaves. There is a window overlooking the garden and another Velux with a blind in the ceiling. From the lounge you step down into the 13.5m² large family bathroom with a bath, shower cubicle, separate W.C, ceramic sink and towel radiator. Through the bathroom you reach bedroom two (13.5m²) which is carpeted and with extra walk-in storage space to the eaves. The windows in the bedroom and bathroom have a roller blind and overlook the pool.

The stairs down to the sous-sol take you into a large 14m² L shaped, tiled hall which has under stair storage and access to the cellars. Bedroom three measures 13.6m² and is also located off this hall. It is a carpeted double bedroom with a window and radiator.

The private garden has established trees and shrubs along one side and overlooks a field to the other. Next to the house is a covered eating terrace with access to the two cellar rooms (40m²), these both have concreted floor, power and windows, so could easily be converted to provide further accommodation.

The opposite side of the eating terrace is a tiled, garden-level 13.5m² summer kitchen with fitted units, sink, tiled rustic work-top, electricity (currently housing fridge and freezer) and plumbing for washing machine. There is a boiler room, pool pump-house and two garden furniture stores in rooms attached. The house has central heating throughout.

The garden itself is completely private with no property over-looking it. At one side is a built in bbq area, a second eating terrace and a grassed area enclosed by the trees. The heated, hard-shell sunken swimming pool is a 50m³ kidney shape with a surface alarm and a paved area surrounding it.
