IF YOU love spending time in and around your home, you'll love Railway View, a spacious property designed by a local architect with family living in mind and built using stone from a nearby quarry.

Railway View's generous and immaculately-presented ground floor accommodation comprises an entrance hall, light and airy living room with a multi-fuel stove, cloakroom, dining room, large garden room – with an electric stove – which overlooks the garden, and the breakfast kitchen. The heart of the home, this is fitted with painted wall and base units with contrasting work surfaces and has a central island with granite work surface and breakfast bar area.

Upstairs are the family bathroom with a free-standing roll top bath and five bedrooms, including the spacious master bedroom with an en-suite shower room and windows to two aspects. The three bedrooms at the front of the property all benefit from views over roof tops to the countryside beyond. A balcony, accessed from the upper hall, stretches between the two upper 'wings' of the house.

Railway View has a double garage (lengthwise rather than width wise), part of which could be used as a workshop thanks to a fixed work bench.

The property's beautifully-landscaped south-facing garden includes tiered borders, a variety of patio areas from where the sun can be enjoyed at different times of the day, a log store, external lighting and sockets and a timber summerhouse with power and light.

A tarmac driveway at the front of the property opens into a gated gravelled area at the side, providing additional parking.

Railway View, in the picturesque village of Cotherstone, is on the market at offers in the region of £595,000.
