Full property description

Portulacea Gardens is a delightful, gated development with just three bespoke detached homes which were built in 2006 to a high specification. This impressive family home offers just over 2400 sq ft of generous and well-presented accommodation, with a versatile layout over three storeys, including six bedrooms, three reception rooms and three bathrooms.

A double-glazed oak front door opens into a particularly large reception hall with a cloakroom and stairs to the first floor. To the left is a dual aspect sitting room with a wide bay window and a fireplace with a limestone surround, black granite hearth and a contemporary wood burning stove.

From the sitting room, double doors open into a well-proportioned dining room with French doors to the garden and a door to the kitchen/breakfast room. This has been fitted with a superb range of wall and floor units sets around black granite work surfaces.

This delightful room has ample space for a table and chairs and is further complemented by a useful utility room which has plenty of space for laundry appliances.

The generous living space is completed by a home office that sits to the front of the house.

On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to four generous double bedrooms (all with built in double wardrobes) and a well-appointed family bathroom with a contemporary white suite including a bath and separate shower enclosure. The main bedroom is a particularly large dual aspect room with two sets of built-in double wardrobes and a beautifully finished ensuite shower room.

From the first-floor landing, a staircase rises to a central landing on the second floor. To the right is a double bedroom with a dressing room and a stylish en suite shower room, whilst to the left is another large bedroom. This floor could be perfect for teenagers or older relative wanting to live independently.


The three properties are set around a shared central driveway which is accessed via a set of wrought iron electronic double gates. A private block paved driveway provides parking for two cars and leads to a double garage with an electronic double door, power, and lighting.

There is a front garden which is mainly laid to lawn and enclosed behind a low-level brick wall and wrought iron railings.

Gates lead from both sides of the house to the rear garden which measures approx. 60ft x 45ft. This is mainly laid to lawn with mature flower and shrub borders and a full width block patio.

The village is served by a well-regarded primary school, a Post Office, The Barn Shop, a public house (The Halfway House) and a recently opened aquarium. The village has a strong sense of community, with many clubs and societies running from either the villages Methodist chapel or the ancient Norman Church of Saint Comas and Saint Damian.
