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 is fully double glazed with wooden frames throughout. The house benefits from a modern oil fired central heating system as well as an oil fired Aga in the kitchen. The central heating boiler was recently replaced. The house is well decorated in contemporary shades and comprises a smart entrance porch/lobby, a dining/reception, a bright sitting room, a study/bedroom 4, a kitchen, rear lobby, utility room and a downstairs wet room with w.c. and bidet. The study/bedroom 4 is adjacent to the ground floor wet room and could be used for a dependant relative or guests. Upstairs, off the landing, is a family bathroom with 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 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.
