It's home to lots of sports, plenty of tennis courts, a great cafÈ and a popular Saturday morning Park Run - a great way to get or stay fit.

Before we venture inside there's much to appreciate on the exterior. The grey slate roof and smooth white render give a contemporary feel to this extended and modernised home. The front garden has a neat lawn area, shrub beds and brick retaining walls The brick paved drive can cater for many cars nose to tail. Inside the standout room is the sizeable kitchen/dining/family room. An open plan masterpiece with full width bi-fold doors to the patio and lawned garden. Light flows effortlessly thanks to that wall of glass and a large domed skylight. Marble tiled floors and low voltage downlighters add to the quality finish. The kitchen is blessed with large white granite work tops and lots of white high gloss low and eye level units. The sizeable island unit is home to the sink and drainer along with lots of storage, a wine fridge and a significant breakfast bar. There is space for an American style fridge freezer. The 5 ring gas hob has a designer extractor fan above. The room is so vast there is plenty of room for soft seating and can host the most decadent of dining tables.

The living room is another impressive living space spanning the full width of the house. Wooden floors, large windows and plenty of space for sofas makes for a comfortable family environment.
