An exceptional family home offering generously proportioned accommodation throughout, arranged in a practical and convenient style with large circulation areas.

A wooden door with bullseye glass accesses a practical entrance porch with a window to the side and has attractive Karndean flooring. A ledge and board pine door leads directly to the reception hall which is a particularly inviting area and has a window to the front elevation, stairs rising to a half landing with a large storage cupboard beneath, dado rail, moulded skirting boards and attractive ceiling cornicing.

The principal reception rooms can all be accessed from here and the sitting room is situated to the rear of the property and benefits from twin pairs of French doors to the extensive terrace with garden beyond. This is a well proportioned room and has an impressive red brick fireplace with oak lintel and a wood burner set upon a stone hearth which provides a focal point. Detailing includes ceiling cornices and a dado rail.

The dining room is situated to the front elevation of the property and has a large window overlooking the front gardens with views to the village rooflines. This is a well proportioned room and has Karndean flooring, deep moulded skirting boards, detailed cornicing and a dado rail. It is particularly well suited to formal entertaining. Further versatility is provided by a practical study which is adjacent to the sitting room and the dining room.

The heart of the house is formed by a particularly impressive kitchen/breakfast room which benefits from a dual aspect taking in views to the village and to the rear terrace with garden beyond via bi-fold doors. It is extensively fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted shaker style units with integral appliances to include oven, grill and warming drawer, dishwasher, 'Quooker' tap and a five ring gas hob with extractor hood over. There is a tiled floor and a large storage cupboard which houses the boiler. A stable door leads to the terrace and a ledge and board door accesses the utility room which has a range of floor and wall mounted units to one side, plumbing for a washing machine and a large window to the garden.

The first floor is equally impressive with the aforementioned half landing rising to the galleried landing. This is an exceptionally spacious area with a linen cupboard and a further cupboard providing extensive storage.

The principal suite is situated to the front of the property and benefits from a dual aspect giving views to the village. There is a range of built-in wardrobes and a dressing table. It is served via a lavishly appointed en-suite bath/shower room which is fully tiled to dado height and has a tiled floor. A large walk-in shower cubicle is adjacent to a free standing oval ended bath and matching suite.

There are three further double bedrooms, two of which have extensive wardrobe space and a fifth bedroom, also with wardrobe space, is currently utilised as a study. These are all served by a family bath/shower room with oval ended bath set within a tiled plinth, raised shower cubicle and matching suite.

There is a second family shower room which has recently been refurbished and has a fully tiled shower cubicle, tiling to dado height and a matching suite.

It would be fair to say that Yew Tree House is an exceptional family home offering huge versatility in terms of accommodation with spacious family entertaining areas and the possibility of a guest suite in one wing of the first floor.

The property is approached via a five bar gate and picket fencing leading to a large gravelled drive providing extensive parking and in turn accessing the detached double garage which is fully equipped with power and light. There are neatly clipped yew bushes that provide focal points that flank the drive and there are two dwarf red brick walls flanking the entrance beyond which are densely stocked herbaceous borders with a variety of 'David Austin' roses, small holly bushes and spring bulbs.

The gardens benefit from a predominately South and West facing aspect enabling them to take advantage of the afternoon and evening sun. There is an extensive full width terrace to the rear of the property which can be accessed from both the kitchen/breakfast room and the sitting room via double French doors. This terrace is flanked by a dwarf red brick wall and is split level in nature with densely stocked herbaceous borders adjacent to the wall. It is a private area for large scale family entertaining and perfectly suited to the size of the property.

Attractive steps lead from the terrace to the garden where there is a decorative wrought iron rose arch separating the large expanses of neatly manicured lawn from the terrace. A striking clipped yew tree to the Easterly boundary provides a focal point adjacent to some large laurel bushes. A winding cobbled path leads to a 'Rhino' greenhouse. Beyond this is a raised vegetable bed and to the extremities of the boundary are further densely stocked herbaceous borders which provide home to a variety of shrubs and perennials.

There are a number of large native specimen trees that provide interest to include silver birch, horse chestnut, rowan and an attractive twisted hazel. On the Westerly facing boundary is a fig tree in a raised brick border.

To the rear of the garden is a storage building with weather boarded elevations and a tiled roof and also a large children's play area with slides, swings and a flume. The boundaries to the garden are all mature with laurel to one side and fencing to the other.

The gardens benefit from delightful views across open paddock to the rear with the parish church in the background. Rear access is afforded to the side of the property via an attractive artisan gate.
