Property Information

Quiet and tucked away location for this attractive executive home which is presented to the market for the first time since being built 23 years ago.
'Thistledown' is a true one-off property, designed with the potential for further alteration in mind by the former owner who was an architect, meaning this could quite easily be the forever family home.
Covering 1818 sq ft (168.9 sq m), the property provides a wonderful sense of space with all rooms of a generous size. The ground floor presents two reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom and access to an integral garage. An attractive balustrade staircase rises to a large galleried landing which presents four double bedrooms (Master En-Suite) and a family bathroom.
The property occupies a generous plot with wide frontage, providing ample off-road parking whilst an 83' (25.42m) rear garden offers plenty of room for the children to run around and a paradise for those who are green fingered.
All in all, a great opportunity to acquire a bespoke family home that offers a country, village lifestyle yet within close proximity to essential amenities.
Early viewing is recommended to fully appreciate the quality and lifestyle on offer.
