An exceptional new four bedroom detached home beautifully designed and presented to an impressive specification with a classic interior.

The front door of the house opens in to a spacious entrance hall with large study area to the right hand side which is complemented by bespoke cabinetry. The hall leads through to the impressive kitchen/family room which features a hand made Charles Yorke kitchen with stone work surfaces and inbuilt appliances including a Falcon Range Oven, fridge, freezer, dish washer and wine fridge. The bi-fold doors open out across the rear of the house bringing the garden in to the room, further enhancing the already ample living space.
