The Curlews was constructed in the early 1980’s and offers superbly presented and spacious accommodation, which in recent years has been the subject of considerable improvement and expenditure. Worthy of particular mention are the kitchen/dining room, sitting room and garden room all taking full advantage of the aspect. The kitchen/dining room is extensively fitted and has built-in appliances, the sitting room has a feature fireplace and sliding patio doors to the garden room, which has French doors to the garden. All three bedrooms have fitted wardrobes, the master also having a spacious, en-suite bathroom. There is also a separate shower room, which along with the en-suite, is fitted with a modern white suite and attractive tiling.
The property also benefits from having gas fired central heating (boiler replaced 2017/18) and the windows have been replaced with uPVC double glazed units.
The garden has also been vastly improved, the majority of which enjoys a south-westerly aspect. There is also a driveway providing ample parking and leads to an integral double garage.
