Set on a corner on the popular Rockingham Hills development, this stunning four/five bedroomed, detached property has an impressive 127sq m of living space for the expanding family.

The south-facing rear garden has been finely tuned, and has a secret summerhouse tucked behind the manicured hedge, and a variety of trees, shrubs and flowers.
A further added bonus is the double detached garage to the rear of the garden, with off-road parking for three or more vehicles.

Light and spacious with a fresh feel and contemporary elements, as well as quality fixtures and fittings, this pristine home will not disappoint.

Entrance Hall

The partially glazed entrance door is positioned to the side of the house and opens into a spacious and light hallway, that sets the overall tone of the whole property. A neutral-coloured carpet extends through to the living room and up the stairs to the first floor. A dado rail and ceiling coving complete this area.

Cloakroom

Having a tiled, neutral-coloured flooring, an obscure glazed window to the front, and a contemporary radiator, the cloakroom offers an inset basin to a vanity unit and a low-level W.C.

Living Room (5.2m x 3.3m)

The L-shaped reception room has a large bay window, with a deep sill, overlooking the front elevation. A concrete modular wood-burner, with a black slate hearth, creates a contemporary focal point to this room.

Dining Area (2.7m x 3.9m)

Leading from the living room, the dining area has Moduleo Design flooring, to the spacious entertaining area, which has ample room for a large dining table and chairs to seat the whole family. Additionally, there is a window to the side elevation, an under-stairs storage cupboard and two glazed doors opening into the kitchen/day room.

Study/Bedroom Five (2.7m x 3.4m)

Currently used as the study and music room, this multi-purpose carpeted room is a good size, and has a lot of natural light from the south-facing garden. It would make a lovely hobby room or bedroom.

Open Plan Kitchen - Day Room (3.7m x 6.7m)

Accessed from both the entrance hall and the dining room, this open-plan room offers modern living, with the same flooring as the dining room. It has been creatively designed, and has French doors, and side casement windows opening onto the semi-circular patio. Maximum light is gained from the two Velux windows in the high ceiling. As a feature of this room, there is a free-standing Danish manufactured Morso wood-burner, with glass hearth. A further window is positioned at the side of the room looking onto the garden.
Dividing the day room and the kitchen is a central island that has been handmade, providing a selection of hand-painted cupboards and drawers, under the polished granite worksurface that incorporates a circular sink with mixer tap. There is space for a range cooker above which there is a matching granite splashback and stainless-steel extractor hood over. Integrated to the base cupboards is a dishwasher and adjacent space for a tall fridge/freezer. A full height cupboard cleverly conceals a utility area, that has space and plumbing for a washing machine, space and shelving for storage and a microwave. A partially glazed door leads out to the side garden.

First Floor Landing

Off the hallway, the straight stairs rise to the first floor, where a ceiling lightwell gains extra natural light. A cupboard with shelves for linen, presently houses a tumble dryer. A hatch, with an attached aluminium pull-down ladder, accesses the fully boarded loft space.

Principal Bedroom (3.4m x 3.4m)

The extended bedroom has a dressing area with floor to ceiling wardrobes on one side, and a door to the shower room on the other. At the far end of this room, through an arch to the main bedroom there is a tall ceiling, giving added interest. A window overlooks the rear garden.

En suite Shower Room (1.7m x 1.9m)

Fully tiled, neutral-coloured walls are the background to the corner shower cubicle, with drencher and separate mixer attachment, low-level W.C. and inset basin with cupboard under. In addition, this room has tiled flooring, ceiling spotlights, a heated towel rail and an obscure glazed window to the side elevation.

Bedroom Two (3.5m x 3.4m)

Positioned at the front of the house, with two windows, this double room was formerly the principal bedroom. It has a range of floor-to-ceiling wardrobes that provide a great amount of storage.

Bedroom Three (3.2m x 2.8m)

Another double room at the back of the house has built-in wardrobes and views over the garden.

Bedroom Four (3m x 2.3m)

This room has two windows to the front aspect and a built-in cupboard.

Family Bathroom (1.7m x 2.2m)

Amtico flooring and wall tiling to dado height in neutral tones are the backdrop to the white suite that comprises: a bath with shower over and glass screen, wash hand basin, with built-in cupboard under, and a low-level W.C. There is also a heated towel rail and an obscure glazed window to the side elevation.

External

At the front there is a good stretch of lawn, a neatly manicured holly tree and planted borders. A path leads round to the main entrance door.

A tall gate opens onto a patio area at the side of the house, and there is room here where the present occupiers store wood and bins. This leads to a decked area with an awning and ample room for generous-sized garden furniture. In the background there is trellis work with climbing plants to soften the fence boundary. The path leads to a lawned area with well-maintained hedges and planted borders, and behind here, there is a hidden patio area with a summerhouse. Gated pedestrian access leads to the driveway and front of the garage, which is situated on Seymour Place.

Another path leads to more storage and a personal door into the back of the double garage. The garage has power and light connected and there is space for a minimum of three vehicles in front on the driveway.
