Love to entertain? Then this house in Rising Lane, Lapworth, would be ideal for you.

Called Evergreen, it has a fantastic fitted kitchen with a dining area to one side – which would be ideal for everyone to gather in at parties.

A central island is the perfect hub for preparing a delicious meal or laying out a buffet spread .

And if guests are staying over, there is a ground floor bedroom with access to a wet room for them to make use of.

Evergreen has a traditional look to the outside but is all about modern luxury inside.

Approached over a sweeping gravel driveway, it has a generous amount of off-road parking to supplement the attached double garage.

Canopied by an oak frame, the entrance porch protects the double front doors which open to the light and spacious reception hall with parquet flooring.

Glazed doors on one side lead through to the formal dining room, while on the other side of the hall an oak door leads in to the impressive drawing room, with an oak floor, wood-burning stove, window to the front and French doors to the garden.

A cosy sitting area links the hall to the stunning open-plan kitchen. This could also be somewhere party guests can sit and enjoy a post-meal drink and chat while admiring the garden through glazed double doors.

In the kitchen there are painted units and a substantial central island, housing an abundance of storage beneath granite surfaces . Integrated appliances include a combination microwave, double oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and coffee maker.

Two sets of French doors from the kitchen lead out to the patio area, bringing the outdoors in on sunny days and barbecue evenings.

A door leads from the kitchen through to the family room which is partially panelled and has views over the front garden. This could be used as a TV room or playroom for younger children.

A versatile ground floor wing contains the fifth bedroom/study and adjacent wet room as well as a utility.

There are four bedrooms on the first floor, all double in size and all with fitted storage. Bathrooms have contemporary suites and Porcelanosa tiling.

In the superb master bedroom there is also a separate dressing area and an exceptional en suite bathroom with a shower, a free-standing bath and twin vanity basins.

Another attribute is the acre of landscaped gardens. Stocked with mature trees, shrubs and an ornamental pond, they are mostly laid to lawn and sheltered by hedgerows. A sun terrace provides an ideal spot for morning cappuccinos or a pre-dinner martini.
