The house sits in a quiet location at the end of Eagle Lane, within a plot of approximately quarter of an acre. The roof has solar panels that benefit from the maximum Feed In Tariff payments, currently amounting to over £2,000 annually and increasing each year. The current owners have found that this fully covers all of their annual energy costs, including swimming pool heating, plus all pool maintenance.
There is a good size secure gated and paved parking area to the front of the house and a large garage with electric door. The gardens are predominantly to the rear of the house and are laid mainly to lawn and not overlooked.
The front door leads into the front hall, to the left there is a generous double aspect sitting room with patio doors leading to the garden, to the right is the double aspect open plan dining room and modern fully equipped kitchen.
Through the kitchen is a hall leading to the utility room and integral garage, plus a large extension with separate entrance that could be used as an annex. This consists of two rooms that would suit a variety of uses (such as bedroom, sitting room, office, gym) plus a fully heated indoor swimming pool and a shower room with WC. The swimming pool room can be fully opened to give an outdoor pool when required. There is a separate room which houses the heating and filtration for the pool.
There is an additional cloakroom WC adjacent to the front hall.
The first floor has a single bedroom and 3 double bedrooms with built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom, plus a family bathroom with shower and whirlpool bath. There is also a balcony accessed off the first floor landing.
