Although easily accessible, Scottsdale affords a high degree of privacy with the clever use of mature hedging and trees along its boundaries. The current owners have extended and improved the property over recent years, incorporating the beautiful period features, to create what is now a fantastic family home with adaptable accommodation. Within the grounds, in an elevated position, is a detached bungalow, enjoying the far reaching views and has been used over the years for family members and a holiday cottage.THE HOUSE
The kitchen/breakfast room is very impressive and perfect for family living, with vaulted ceiling and includes an extensive range of bespoke painted units, integrated appliances and woodburner. There are two good sized reception rooms; a dual aspect dining room and sitting room with beamed ceiling and double doors leading to the garden and a brick fireplace housing the woodburner. There is also a study which could lend itself as a fourth bedroom on the ground floor.
The ground floor is supported by some excellent service rooms. There is a utility room with further storage, sink and plumbing for washing machine etc., a separate boot room with built in cupboards, a shower room and a store room, which was previously a garage, with an up and over door.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.BUNGALOW
