Property description

Johns Close is a small, rarely available cul-de-sac of similar detached properties, which is peacefully tucked away, yet close to the village centre and local amenities.

No.5 is a generous four bedroom residence situated in a pleasant corner of the close, set behind well tended garden area, enclosed with shrubs. The property provides well balanced and flexible accommodation, ideal for a growing family.

Internally, the generous and well appointed accommodation is set over two floors. The front door leads to the entrance hallway which gives access to all of the ground floor rooms. The fully fitted kitchen has a range of storage units, worktops, an integrated oven and microwave, four-ring ceramic hob, integrated double sink with mixer tap, plumbing for dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. Off the kitchen is a useful rear lobby which provides access to the side and rear garden. The generous lounge is of excellent proportions and has a feature fireplace, patio doors to the conservatory which is fully double glazed with double doors leading to the rear garden. There is also a good sized study which could be used as a playroom. Elsewhere on the ground floor is a cloakroom/WC and dining room, ideal for entertaining.

On the first floor, a landing leads to four good size bedrooms of which three are doubles and all benefit from built-in storage. The first floor is completed by the family bathroom which comprises a full suite including walk-in shower and panelled bath. There is access to a boarded loft.

Outside, the property is approached via a hardstanding driveway which provides ample off-street parking and leads to an attached brick-built double garage with two single up-and-over doors. To the front of the property is a small garden with shrubs and trees enclosing the driveway. The enclosed rear garden wraps around the home and has herbaceous borders with the remainder laid to lawn, paved patio areas to the rear and side of the garden and side access leading to the front of the property.
