With parts dating back 200 years, Wood View has practically been rebuilt by the current owners with an exceptional high finish and close attention to detail. The property includes oak beams and exposed brick throughout, giving it the character and warmth along with modern fittings meaning the property has best of both styles. The main house has under floor heating on the ground and first floor, oak doors and spacious and versatile accommodation.
The property is approached through the oak porch into the entrance hallway which has oak flooring and a oak stunning staircase. The hallway gives access to the kitchen/ dining room, sitting room, study and downstairs WC.
The kitchen/ dining room is lovely and light, this is helped by the bi-folding doors and skylights that look out onto the south facing rear garden with views of countryside. There are a mixture of oak wood wall and base units with granite work surfaces and a solid oak kitchen island which gives additional storage. The kitchen has been thoughtfully designed with each cupboard and drawer featuring useful storage hacks. Appliances include a large induction hob, bespoke extractor fan, dishwasher, steam oven, microwave, two ovens, stainless steel sink and wine fridge. There is also space for a large American fridge freezer.
The utility room is to the front of the house and has side access to the driveway, plumbing for the washing machine and tumble dryer and a Belfast sink. There is also a useful storage room which features a safe.
Just off the kitchen is the potential annex with a snug with a feature fireplace, downstairs shower room and bedroom. Which would be ideal for a dependant relative or older child.
The sitting room has a large south facing window which helps bring lots of natural light into the room. The current owners put in a inglenook fireplace with a red brick hearth and a multi fuel burner. There is also a replica of a bread oven, which is a lovely extra. The study is accessed from the hallway or double doors in the sitting room, which give the option of opening both rooms up for more space.
Upstairs the open landing leads to three bedrooms, the main bathroom and the master bedroom.
The master bedroom has a high vaulted ceiling exposing the oak trusses. The current owners have put in feature lighting to make a full spectacle of this beautiful space. There is built in wardrobes and lovely views over local countryside. The en suite also shares the vaulted ceiling and trusses and has a feature window. The en suite has Egyptian limestone tiles, a WC, Travertine wash hand basin, open shower and copper bath tub. Upstairs are a further three bedrooms and the main bathroom which has a walk in shower, bath, WC and wash hand basin.

Upstairs is a double bedroom and en suite which has a bath, WC and wash hand basin.
The garden to Wood View has been incredibly well maintained and manicured. With views onto local countryside, Hollow Marsh meadow and woodlands, the garden is quiet and peaceful.
The garden also features a large patio with a sunken hot tub, raised vegetable beds and a mixture of fruit trees.
The property has plenty of parking and a double garage with an electric door and side room, currently used as a gym.
