The Property

Built in 2004 and now offering scope for refreshment/updating, Yew Tree Lodge offers generous ground floor reception spaces and flexible bedroom arrangements, including the option of a ground floor bedroom with en suite facilities.

Approached over a shared driveway, to the front of the house is a tarmac parking area for two cars, as well as a gravel parking area to the side of the garage and the garage itself. Leading up to the front door is a paved terrace and from here there are steps up to the main, front garden, which is primarily laid to laid to lawn with shrubs and mature trees providing screening from the road and a lovely green outlook for the house.

Gates each side of the house lead around to the rear and side garden areas. To the rear of the house are tiered paved patios leading up to a retained bank with two garden sheds and a strip of lawn running down the side of the house.

Entering through the front door, there is a glazed porch with a second internal door opening into the inner reception hall. This central hallway has useful under-stairs and fitted storage cupboards, with natural light coming in through a window to the rear.

The generously proportioned, triple aspect sitting room has a bay window to the front and a woodburning stove on a stone hearth. Double doors lead through to the double aspect dining room, which in turn leads back around to the central hall.

The spacious kitchen/breakfast room has fitted wall and base units along two walls with a stainless steel sink and drainer, integrated Hotpoint dishwasher and 4-ring gas hob with extractor hood over and oven below. The floor is tiled and there is space for a freestanding fridge freezer and table and chairs. The adjoining utility room provides additional matching base units, another sink and space/plumbing for a washing machine.

The final room on the ground floor has an en suite shower and fitted/built-in wardrobes, so works well as a ground floor bedroom, that will accommodate a double bed. It has a bay window to the front.

Arranged over the first floor are three more double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room, and a family bathroom. All three bedrooms have fitted drawers and two of them have built-in wardrobes. There is also useful built-in storage located off the landing. Due to the chalet style design of the house there are skylights to the rear and dormer windows to the front.

The family bathroom has a panelled bath with shower attachment, WC and washbasin in a vanity unit, as well as a heated towel rail. The en suite shower off the main bedroom is out of order.
