Situated within the Southdown area of Shawford, this spacious extended family home offers hugely light and bright accommodation due to its aspect with all three of the principal reception spaces opening onto the terrace directly behind the house. This beautifully presented property is ideal for both family living and entertaining. The kitchen/breakfast room which is tastefully fitted with a range of dove grey fronted shaker style units with sumptuous granite worksurfaces is undoubtedly the heart of the house. The sitting room offers a dual aspect with an engineered wooden floor, an open fireplace and has double doors opening into the dining room. The garden room makes for an ideal family room and is a sociable space with bi-folding doors onto the pool terrace. There is plentiful bedroom space on the first floor and buyers may even consider amalgamating bedrooms two and six to create another large bedroom suite. Externally the property is set back from the road with a large driveway which leads to the double garage, whilst the rear garden faces due south and has a sun terrace that spans the width of the house with a good-sized heated swimming pool and a pergola with seating area. The rest of the garden is laid to lawn and well-enclosed with mature hedges each side and a post and rail fence backing directly onto woodland. This woodland is owned by the Sparrowgrove and Oakwood Copse Conservation Trust which is managed by local trustees and is assisted by local volunteers meaning it can never be developed on. Within the garden there is a garden shed, pump house with boiler for the pool and a covered seating arbour.
