This beautifully extended, exceptionally spacious family home offers outstanding accommodation - suiting those with a large family, looking for multi-generational living or just simply those looking for extra space. Located in the heart of Lawford, on highly sought-after School Lane, this property is within walking distance of local amenities.

This deceptively spacious family home, located in the very heart of Lawford, offers flexible, contemporary accommodation, ideal for the modern family. Set back from the road, the property is approached via a gravel driveway, providing both off-road parking and leading to the entrance porch and integral garage. One inside, the entrance hall provides space in which to greet guests before moving through to the main living accommodation. At the front of the property, a sitting room - complete with bespoke media wall and open fireplace - offers a quiet, cosy spot for rest and relaxation at the end of a busy day. However, the heart of this home is truly located in the tremendous, open-plan kitchen / dining / family room. This outstanding space offers a well-appointed kitchen, with a cook’s island with bar seating providing a place for casual breakfast and opportunity to perch whilst keeping the cook company. The remainder of this large living space is handed over to dining and casual seating. Two sets of bi-fold doors open directly onto the garden, enabling ease of access to both the family on a day-to-day basis, and allowing guests to drift outside when entertaining friends. A handy utility room ensures all laundry paraphernalia is kept out of the way of the entertaining spaces. The first of six bedrooms and a shower room complete the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor, a principal suite offers a dressing area, bespoke wardrobes, ensuite, and double doors which open onto a Juliet balcony. The four remaining bedrooms share use of the family bathroom. The garden, to the rear, commences with a large patio - ideal for al-fresco dining during the warmer months. A paved path, flanked by lawn, leads to a further patio and summerhouse towards the end of the garden. The lawn provides a wonderful place for younger family members to play - but could equally be seen as a blank canvas for the more green-fingered homeowner.
