DESCRIPTION Number 15 is a fine village residence providing beautifully presented rooms brimming with Edwardian character and period style. The accommodation has been upgraded in recent years and is offered in good order with modern bathrooms and a beautiful kitchen with Aga. The spacious hall sets the tone. The living space is superb. The charming sitting room is an elegant affair in pale tones, flooded with natural light from a large south west facing window. The aspect to the garden is private and a door accesses a lovely terrace which provides the ideal place for alfresco entertaining. The spacious second reception room is a wonderful living/family room which has a large window and sunny private aspect to the rear garden. The fireplace has a Clearview Stove and is flanked by attractive fitted cupboards and shelving with down lighting. The dining room features the original builtin cupboards now painted to compliment the décor. The modern fitted kitchen has an Aga and breakfast bar plus a range of builtin appliances. There are windows to the east and west and a tiled floor for easy maintenance. The lobby off the kitchen is tiled and accesses an enclosed yard, the perfect spot for a morning coffee. The boot room houses the Worcester boiler and makes a great drying room for wet coats and boots. The utility room has a range of fitted units and works well as the back kitchen and includes a double wall oven. 

On the first floor the landing is generous and tastefully decorated. There are three good double bedrooms including one with a walk-in robe and another with builtin wardrobes. The two rear bedrooms have a bright leafy aspect. A shower room is provided and the family bathroom is at the end of the landing. Bedroom four/home office is on the second floor and has electric heating and a north west facing window with aspect to the village. Storage is readily accessible. 

OUTSIDE The property occupies a pleasant 0.2 acre site. At the front a block paved drive provides parking and leads down the side to a timber garage. The rear garden has a near perfect south west aspect ensuring sunshine through the day and evening. A spacious terrace is a real sun trap and beyond this an expanse of lawn and path lead to the rear boundary.
