Property description

Substantial and beautifully presented detached property with accommodation comprising a spacious living room, formal dining room, conservatory, study, kitchen/breakfast room, and a cloakroom on the ground floor. The first floor offers a principal bedroom with dressing area and ensuite, alongside three additional bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property further benefits from a double garage and ample off-road parking.

Located on Higham Road in ever-popular Stratford St. Mary, this detached family home sits back from the road and is approached via a gravel driveway which provides both access to the entrance door and ample off-road parking.

Once inside, a generous entrance hall provides a place in which to greet guests before moving through to the main living accommodation.

The sizeable living room, featuring a wood burning stove, creates the perfect ambiance for relaxation and family gatherings and, with double doors opening into the conservatory and the garden beyond, this is not only the perfect entertaining space, but also a tranquil retreat -boasting panoramic views of the immaculate garden, inviting the beauty of the outside in.

The dining room, with double doors opening into the garden, provides a dedicated space for more formal social gatherings when entertaining family and friends.

For more informal weekday meals - and perhaps a spot for children to complete homework with the chef's help - the kitchen/breakfast room offers plenty of space for a dining table. The kitchen itself offers plenty of storage and worktop for the keen cook to rustle up culinary delights.

A useful study, offering versatility for home office use or creative pursuits, and a cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

Upstairs, the generously-proportioned principal bedroom, with its own dressing area and luxurious en-suite, offers a private sanctuary; a further three bedrooms share the use of a separate family bathroom, easily accommodating family members or guests.

Outside, the beautifully landscaped garden includes a sizeable koi pond, and two separate, raised decking areas - ideal for al fresco dining in the warmer months - with an outdoor bar adding a unique charm to social occasions and family gatherings.

The home is completed by an attached double garage and ample off-road parking - including space to the side of the property behind secure, double gates.<br /><br />
