ABOUT 10 HIGH LEA 10 High Lea occupies a great canal side location at the end of this highly sought-after cul-de-sac with access onto the canal tow path virtually on the doorstep, and is within a short walk of the train station platforms or just a stroll down to the village centre where you'll find an array of shops, bars, cafes, and local businesses. This beautiful family home was constructed in 2001 with the very recently added orangery at the side now compliments the property perfectly. The accommodation is extensive with all main reception rooms enjoying views over the canal and woodland opposite. It has areas ideal for relaxed everyday family time, or perhaps hold larger more formal gatherings in the spacious dining room which has a large feature window at the rear and is open to the galleried landing and roof pitch above giving it a very grand feel. All 4 bedrooms in the main house have en suite facilities with the master bedroom also having a dressing room. The lower ground floor apartment is accessed either from the rear of the house, or via a staircase from the main reception hall. The apartment itself is larger than many houses and is suitable for independent relatives, potential for an air B&B business, or maybe providing plenty of opportunities for those who work from home.
Outside, there is a block paved driveway to the front leading on to the integral double garage. The gardens are immaculate and fairly low maintenance and majority bound by timber fencing panels between stone pillars above a stone wall, with the exception of the rear boundary where you will find glazed panels allowing you to enjoy pleasant views over the canal from many of the sitting areas. The front formal garden has a paved circle set around an ornamental tree with a covering of slate chippings beyond and access through to the garden at the side which is also mainly paved and provides a large space which is perfect for outside entertaining and enjoys a south westerly aspect with views up towards Pule Hill and over to the canal at the rear.
