OVERVIEW: An impressive detached family house of distinction located in the centre of this sought after village with its thriving local community, village hall, play park, recreation ground and store. The property is beautifully presented and has been extended by the current owners to create well-proportioned accommodation as well as light and airy rooms. Many of the rooms enjoy a double aspect to take full advantage of this delightful setting. Much care and attention has gone into the modernisation of Sappers including the heating which is now fuelled by the Charnwood Island 2 woodburner in the lounge and eco radiators in each room which can be controlled individually or in groups by mobile thermostats. There is also a brand new Megaflow pressurised cylinder for hot water.
ACCOMMODATION: To the ground floor is an enclosed porch and central hallway with cloakroom and stairs rising to the first floor. The sitting room looks out over the rear garden and has a fitted woodburner. The dining room looks out to the front and has double doors giving access to the side terrace. The stunning kitchen/breakfast room forms part of the extension and now extends to 6.70m in length, comprising a good range of floor mounted units, together with a solid wooden 'U' shaped work surface with inset ceramic sink unit. The appliances include two integrated 'Bosch' refrigerators, 'Siemens' dishwasher and a '110 Rangemaster Ela' Duel Fuel oven. There is also a space for a washing machine or a second sink or a tumble dryer. Windows look out to side and rear along with bi-fold doors opening on to the rear garden, ideal for 'alfresco' dining. There is a useful larder cupboard with access to the garage and a separate matching utility room. Approached from the landing are four double bedrooms and a study. The main bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with 2 skylight windows and a sliding door to a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room/wc beyond. All are served by a family bath & shower room/wc with roll-top bath and separate shower cubicle.
Accessed via a five-bar gate is a gravel driveway providing plenty of parking leading to a garage/workshop with a pair of double opening doors. Side access leads via a secluded paved sitting out area to the rear garden. This has a sunny south and west aspect, partly laid to lawn with a terrace area and flower beds stocked with a wide range of shrubs and perennials. There is also a kitchen garden with productive soft fruit bushes, timber sheds, greenhouse and log/kindling stores.
