The four bedroom detached Shaftesbury combines classic Arts and Crafts inspired architecture with an interior layout designed to more than meet the needs of the modern family.
Multiple windows on three sides flood this home with light, enhancing the sense of space, while simple, yet elegant design makes the most of every square foot.
The ground floor is split between an impressive formal lounge and a more casual family kitchen / dining room, with ample space in both rooms. The kitchen comes fully fitted with designer units and premium quality appliances, and benefits from a separate utility with exterior access, while the dining / living area enjoys both a large front window and a double sized patio door to the garden beyond. There is also a downstairs cloakroom off the main hall.
Upstairs, the central landing leads to four double sized bedrooms, including an en-suite master bedroom, as well as a comfortable family bathroom.
Perfectly simple in style, the Shaftesbury is simply perfect for the larger family who demand more from their home and their lifestyle.
