Further detail
The house is in the catchment area of Oaklands Junior School and Edgbarrow Secondary School, which is rated as outstanding by Ofsted. There are also many private schools in the area including Wellington College, which is situated within the village. Heating is provided by a gas warm air active system. This has the benefits of providing rapid and even warmth and removes the space and leakage issues associated with radiators. The fan system can also be used for cooling in the summer. There is modern UPVC double glazing through the property with floor-length windows to the south-facing rear and room-wide windows in all other rooms, which make this a light and airy house.

There is wall cavity and loft insulation. The wide driveway is shared with the neighbouring house but owned within the freehold of this property.

To the side of the property and adjacent to the road is a paved and shaded garden. Previous owners have used this to store a caravan and it could easily be opened up for further parking space if required.

At the rear is a grassed lawn with high sheltering bushes surrounding it. There are three patios outside each of the three main reception rooms and a latticed loggia, providing plenty of space for relaxing and entertaining. There are two dry garden sheds.
