This wonderful individual, detached house occupies a tranquil position, tucked away towards the end of this highly sought after and private road, just a short walk from the mainline train station and village amenities. The current owner has transformed the house with a programme of expansion and full refurbishment. In fact a viewer would be forgiven for thinking the house was brand new, as little of the original remains. The thoughtful design is primarily focused on light and space, with many unique features, finished to the highest possible standard, yet with a continuous effort to make the home as environmentally friendly as possible, and economic to run. This substantial home offers extremely versatile accommodation and extends to approximately 2875 sqft.
The accommodation comprises a large welcoming reception hall with porcelain flooring and a bespoke oak staircase rising to first floor accommodation with glazed doors leading through to the kitchen / dining / family room, the heart of this home. The bespoke kitchen area enjoys the far reaching views of the garden, and with its southerly facing orientation, this space is bathed in natural light. The kitchen area is fitted with bespoke cabinetry, ample granite working surfaces with matching central island / breakfast bar. There are deep pan drawers and two full height, pull out larder cupboards, and a host of integral appliances. These include an induction hob, twin ovens with extraction, full height fridge-freezer plus dishwasher. Off the kitchen area is a family room, partially separated by a chimney breast with inset contemporary electric real flame fire, with patio doors to the garden and porcelain floor tiles. Please note that there is underfloor heating both on the ground floor and the first floor.
Off the inner hallway, there is a cloakroom / wc, study and a generous utility / boot room with plant cupboard housing the new wall mounted gas fired central heating boiler. The sitting room is an elegantly proportioned room with a dual aspect and features contemporary inset gas and electric fire, making a wonderful adult space.
Upstairs, off the stunning galleried landing, there are four large double bedrooms and four bathrooms / shower rooms, including the master suite with glazed rear elevation with door to balcony, plus dressing room incorporating a walk-in closet and luxury bathroom. The guest bedroom and third bedroom also have en-suite facilities, and bedroom 4 is serviced by the luxury family bathroom.
Outside, the property is set back from the road, and set within a neatly landscaped frontage with a gravelled in-and-out driveway, providing parking for multiple vehicles with well stocked shrub borders and flower beds. Gated access leads to the rear garden which enjoys a south facing orientation, and measures over 150 feet in length, professionally designed and landscaped to incorporate a formal lawn with flower and shrub boarders and beds, a generously paved patio terrace, ideal for alfresco dining, with a neat laurel hedge separating the children’s garden beyond, again laid to lawn with a gravelled pathway leading to the rear of the garden and the timber cabin. The cabin would make an ideal self-contained annex for dependent relatives and consists of a living / dining room with a fitted kitchen, two bedrooms and a shower room.
