Little Easton was built on land purchased in 1930, and was extended by the present owners about 15 years ago. The accommodation is bright and fully double glazed and the house benefits from a modern oil fired central heating system as well as an oil fired Aga in the kitchen. It is well decorated in contemporary shades and comprises a smart entrance porch/lobby, a dining/reception, a bright sitting room, a garden room or study, a kitchen, rear lobby, utility room and a downstairs wet room with w.c. and bidet. Upstairs off the landing is a family bathroom including a shower, a front facing master bedroom with an ensuite shower room, a big guest bedroom and a third double bedroom. The views from the house are excellent in all directions and the garden is well tended and stocked with a wide variety of plants and shrubs lending colour to the garden at most times of the year. Within the grounds is a large open fronted double parking barn within which is a pair of lock-up stores/workshops with power. Fowlers strongly recommend going to view this house to properly appreciate all it has to offer.
