A bit like vintage port, some properties just get better with age!

Such is the case with Styleway, which in many ways is reminiscent of a 'Gentleman's Residence' with many features, including for example, the timber panelled walls in the dining room that are surely from a bygone era.

Thankfully it has been brought into the twenty-first century, with a blend of the modern and old transforming this lovely property into the impressive family home that we see today. Interestingly though, one could argue that the rear elevation is the more imposing one, despite the far-reaching front facing views over the town and St Alkmunds church in the distance from its elevated position.

Then there is the plot, which is undoubtedly a very good size, including ample parking in the large driveway at the front. To the rear, there are formal gardens (with a range of useful outbuildings) and a wildlife area with small pond.

Inside, the accommodation extends to 3 floors and upon entering the spacious entrance hall, it is immediately apparent that things are going to be rather splendid. There are 3 reception rooms, the superb dining room having timber panelled walls and providing a great space for entertaining. The kitchen/breakfast room has granite worktops and solid oak units.

In summary, properties such as Styleway are relatively few and far between around Whitchurch and with that in mind, an early viewing is most strongly recommended.
