STYLISH country living is on offer with this spacious and pretty home at Hinderclay.

Garden House in The Street is an attractive four-bedroom cottage surrounded by mature gardens of almost one third of an acre. It has a guide price of £450,000.

The current owners have renovated and updated the property to create light and well-planned accommodation with a welcoming hallway which links the main reception areas.

Several of the rooms have doors opening into the garden to open up the interior so that it blends with the outdoor space.

The triple aspect living room enjoys natural light and French doors opening into the garden. It has solid oak flooring and a large open fireplace as a focal point.

The kitchen serves as the heart of the home and also has views of the garden with French doors opening onto a cobbled courtyard area.

It is fitted with attractive bespoke wooden units, a double butler sink, cream dual fuel Rangemaster cooker and walnut travertine flooring.

The kitchen space also includes a dining area with a woodburning stove and wooden trifold doors into the garden room. Other downstairs rooms include the former dining room which is now used as a music room with French doors onto its own terrace, a study which could double as a ground floor bedroom, and a boot room and utlity area, plus a downstairs cloakroom.

Upstairs all the bedrooms are situated off the central landing.

The master bedroom boasts a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, plus a dressing area and ensuite bathroom with a cast iron roll top bath. There are three other bedrooms, which would all comfortably fit double beds, and a family bathroom.

The property is approached from the road through double wooden gates which lead to a gravel driveway.

The mature gardens surround the property and include well-planted flower and shrub beds, specimen trees, a vegetable patch and an orchard containing a range of apple, pear, cherry and plum trees.

The garage includes a workshop area and has double doors onto the courtyard.

A large timber greenhouse is attached to the garage, allowing direct access from the house, and there is a range of outbuildings which include a wood store, shed and a treehouse.
