It has been extensively modernised and improved by the current owner who must take great credit for the tasteful decor and high specification throughout whilst notable features include the stylish kitchen/breakfast room and four sumptuous bathrooms that are superbly appointed. Automated gates with an intercom and camera lead to the driveway that allows ample off road parking and turning whilst garaging is provided for five cars. The rear garden has a truly stunning outlook backing directly onto woodland with distant views to the horizon and also benefits from a hard surface tennis court.
