Extended home is just perfect for family living

Extended to almost double the size of the original house, this spacious four-bedroomed semi-detached home takes advantage of its generous plot size and offers an excellent family home in a village setting.
Constructed by P R Procter & Sons Ltd in the mid-1980s, the house sits at the head of a cul-de-sac, and was built in a particularly generous plot size – so much so that the owners recognised the potential to create a much larger family home.
The imaginatively-planned extension to the side, on both the ground and first floors, has almost doubled the size of the original property, so that it offers exceptional accommodation with a lovely L-shaped sitting, dining and kitchen area, perfect for family living, as well as four double bedrooms, upgraded bathroom and en suite shower room.
On the ground floor the sitting/dining room has a cast iron multi-fuel stove set into carved stone surround. This is a lovely light room, with three sets of patio doors leading out to the timber decking which wraps around two sides.
The kitchen area is fitted with a range of solid oak units and granite worktops, a five-ring gas hob, with double electric oven and dishwasher, together with a larder cupboard.
Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom and a utility room and stainless steel single drainer sink, plumbing for washing machine and dryer, and a selection of wall and base units.
Benefiting from UPVC double-glazed windows and doors, as well as gas-fired central heating from a combination boiler, the accommodation is light and airy throughout, and is much larger than one would at first expect.
Even given the size of the building extension, there is still a good-sized garden. To the rear there is a lawn and vegetable patch, with an L-shaped timber decked area, wrapping around the rear and side of the house.
Adjacent there is a more secluded corner plot, still with the potential to create more parking or a further play area. There is also a shed with power and light.
At the front, there is an open lawn with tarmac driveway (parking for two cars with potential for more) leading to single garage with up-and-over door, power and light.
