THERE is a saying not to judge a book by its cover.

And nor should you make up your mind about a house purely on how it looks from the outside.

While the exterior of this three-bedroom home in Atherton looks similar to others in the area, it's once you get inside that this really stands out from the crowd.

No detail has been overlooked in the extended and modern living area, with spacious kitchen including an island breakfast bar.

This is where a family will spend most of its time cooking, entertaining and relaxing ­— and it is the perfect environment to do all three.

Patio doors lead outside to the back garden where there is a part-enclosed patio area ­— perfect for relaxing in all weather.

Upstairs, there are three large bedrooms and a modern family bathroom.

There is space for parking on the driveway and a stone-built shed off the back garden.

Having got past the cover of this book, it is surely going to be one you can't put down until the end.
