Stoneleigh is a delightful home in the popular village of Croscombe.
With three reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room and five bedrooms (two with ensuite bathrooms), there's plenty of space to really make the property work for you and your needs.
An open fronted porch leads to the front door that opens into the hall; this generous space is dual aspect with a feature round window to the front and there is plenty of room for furniture or seating. A doorway to the left opens to the cloakroom and to the right of the hall a door leads to the ground floor bedroom which also has a wet room with walk-in shower. This downstairs bedroom suite could also work well as a home office set up.
Returning to the reception hall, another door ahead opens into an inner hall with the staircase in front and on the left a door to the sitting room. The sitting room has a large window with a view across the front garden and a central chimney breast with an electric flame effect fire. The sitting room has a door to the dining room and also opens to the garden room. This room is a lovely additional area and has large, glazed sliding doors leading out into the garden. The dining room again looks over the rear garden and opens into the kitchen and breakfast room.
The dual aspect kitchen looks out over the rear garden. It is well fitted with a good range of units and high quality appliances including a a Neff double oven and Smeg 5 ring induction hob.
On the first floor there are 4 good size bedrooms, two of which have built in wardrobes. The dual aspect master bedroom has views across to the countryside, a built-in double wardrobe and an en suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom on this floor.
The enclosed rear garden has been designed with easy maintenance in mind. The raised borders have been contained by railway sleepers and have been well planted with a range of shrubs, herbaceous and climbing plants including rhododendron, fig, climbing roses, jasmine and clematis. The rest of the garden is gravelled with a central water feature. To one side is a separate fenced area containing another gravelled garden with a large timber outbuilding. At the front of the house, a screened southerly facing raised terrace is a lovely spot for seating and enjoying the views.
Stoneleigh is on the market with Roderick Thomas for £600,000.
