This is a beautifully fitted property in a prime location, set towards the end of this very pretty close of Victorian style houses with views from the rear over natural pastureland.

A tastefully decorated and fitted linked detached country house which the present owners have enhanced with the introduction of a play room, and an extension and total refitting some two years ago of the kitchen/breakfast room. Previous additions include a spacious garden room.

Wayland Close is an exclusive residential close, once the site of a Victorian hospital, part of which at the front has been retained as a single dwelling. The style of the remainder of the houses in the close is taken from this delightful period and the close has only 17 individually designed homes constructed approximately 20 years ago to exacting standards by the well-known firm of builders, Martin Grant.

Situated in a very peaceful, secluded and private position within the heart of this very exclusive modern small development, with private road access and farmland on all sides.

The property will be just as suitable for a family or professionals as it would be as a second home. It is very safe for children and pets as it is positioned almost at the end of this peaceful private no through road and opposite the access for the 3 acre communal green.

Special features:
● The luxurious and beautifully fitted 2 year old kitchen
● French doors from both the kitchen/breakfast room and the garden room leading directly to the south facing rear garden
● The very pretty garden room which leads to a decked summer dining terrace and BBQ area
● Highly polished oak flooring to the family room/sitting room and dining room areas
● Pretty bay window to the sitting room
● Open fire presently fitted with a modern propane fuelled coal effect fire
● Plantation shutters to doorway and windows in breakfast room and play room
● Ceramic flagged limestone flooring from the reception hall leading through into the kitchen/breakfast room and utility room
● Very pretty decked balcony for bedroom 1, with views to the side overlooking farmland
● Across the close is a 3 acre communal green maintained under the service charge, with access for all the properties providing a wonderful area for children, birthdays, games, etc, and is for use only by the residents of Waylands Close
● Useful study area to one end of the large landing with a window overlooking the front
