Introduction

Situated within the picturesque conservation area of similar attractive homes within the heart of the King's Somborne village is this gorgeous four bedroom period home enjoying views across private paddocks and extended living accommodation. Having been the subject of considerable improvement and extension by our clients this attractive home offers flexible and beautifully presented living space but retains its period elegance. An extended open plan kitchen dining room is the modern hub of the home and a traditionally styled sitting room with woodburning stove integrates the old with the new to create a special family home. The host of wow factors include the impressive vaulted master bedroom suite with walk in wardrobes, refitted ensuite facilities and attractive views from its dual aspect. Practicality is provided by a further family room or office and a sizeable utility/boot room offering generous storage.

The adjoining sitting room provides the period feel to the house, centred upon a pretty fireplace with inset woodburning stove, built in bespoke units and a bay window. There are double doors to the dining area and access to the family room which can serve as a study if required and accesses the garden directly.
