The village of Wilby is an extremely picturesque location which is surrounded by stunning countryside scenery making it ideal for any lovers of the great outdoors.

This attractive family home really does have bundles of kerb appeal with characterful features combined with modern efficiency, a somewhat perfect combination. Entry into the home is gained via a solid wood door which leads into the impressive kitchen dining room, this is very much a focal point of this home and a space that we feel is ideal for wholesome family memories to be created. Access to all ground floor rooms can be found from this space with the staircase to the first floor as well. The lounge is really well proportioned for the size of this charming home providing plenty of space for family life, the room is located to the rear of the plot and has dual aspect light with solid wood French doors leading out onto a patio area. The ground floor bedrooms are both doubles in size with the master coming with an en-suite shower room, this is another beautiful room that has been well thought out. The en-suite sits between the master bedroom and the utility and has a door into each room, being in between two other rooms it's important to consider light and here this has absolutely been done, the Velux skylight is a simple but great feature that pours light into this lovely space. The property is heated by underfloor heating to ground floor level with all rooms (with exception to the utility) each having a thermostatic control. Moving upstairs you'll find that even the landing is an area to appreciate, being of good width with plenty of light entering via a further two Velux windows it's almost an ideal place to sit with a good book. The accommodation is completed with a further two good size bedrooms and a modern but tasteful family bathroom on the first floor.
The property sits almost central in the plot and is approached via a sweeping shingle driveway which is privately owned by Pottery Barn. There is off road parking for numerous vehicles and potential for more to be made should you so wish. The majority of the garden is located to the side and front of the property which provides easterly and southerly aspects. The position of this home with the plot it sits within creates a feeling of privacy and peacefulness being set back some way from the road. The garden has been landscaped and is mainly laid to lawn with multiple borders, there is also a patio area, decking area and a summerhouse with an outside storage facility. The summerhouse is connected to power, has light and is insulated which makes it the ideal space for anyone who needs a private work from home office. Another thing to note is the enjoyable views from the decking area where you can look out to the treelined skyline with St Marys Church protruding above it, a genuinely lovely sight to appreciate daily.
