The property occupies a tucked away, leafy position nicely situated off a private driveway, and was constructed in 2022 to a traditional style using the highest quality of materials to reflect the character of the area. Built to the current owners’ specification and with careful attention to detail and impeccable style, the property is a most enviable, spacious, and versatile family home. Every aspect has been carefully considered and the finishes are interior designed to the latest high-end trends, using quality materials and craftsmen to create a bespoke look that runs throughout.
On the ground floor there is a welcoming reception hall featuring attractive tiled flooring and galleried staircase leading to the first-floor accommodation. The reception hall leads to all ground-floor accommodation, creating a nice sense of flow. A glazed door set opens to a spacious light and bright dual-aspect living room featuring a wood burner, and large French doors open out to a landscaped private rear garden. The living room is then open to a most impressive open-plan kitchen/dining/family room featuring beautiful engineered oak flooring laid to herringbone style, and again benefits from large French doors opening out to the garden, creating a real sense of the outdoors-in. The open-plan design of this space lends itself to social and family gatherings, whilst the subtle separation of the living room area provides a place for quieter retreat. The kitchen itself is particularly worthy of note and is beautifully hand-crafted with a range of contemporary shaker-style cabinetry in a sumptuous blue, paired with elegant, antiqued brass knobs, integrated appliances, Fisher and Paykel range cooker and American style fridge/freezer. A large island unit is a real focal point and provides ample space for food preparation and social gathering, along with space to seat several as a breakfast bar. Quartz worksurfaces in a rich Calacatta marble provide a sumptuous and stunning finish to the kitchen, including a waterfall design to the island unit. To the front of the family room space there is an inviting bay window which the owners have used to help create a quiet reading area.
Off the reception hall there is also a generous home office with aspect to the front of the property overlooking the planting and shrub beds, and specimen trees beyond. There is also a good-sized utility/wc with a range of storage and space for separate washer and dryer.
To the first floor there is a spacious light-filled galleried landing with space for a reading nook beneath the pretty front aspect window. The accommodation to this floor is most generous and versatile to suit varying family needs, comprising four large double bedrooms and three luxury bathrooms. Bedroom 1 is a beautiful room benefitting from high vaulted ceilings, bespoke fitted wardrobes, and an impressive en-suite with large walk-in shower and twin countertop basins resting on a solid teak vanity unit. Bedroom 4 has been designed as a guest suite and benefits from a well-appointed en-suite including contemporary shower and countertop basin on a bespoke vanity shelf. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are spacious rooms to the rear of the property with characterful part-sloping ceilings and large Velux windows; joyful rooms used by the current owners as children’s bedrooms. A family bathroom, again beautifully finished in calming natural tones, offers a large bath along with solid teak vanity until and countertop basin.
Outside, the property benefits from a good sized private rear garden with generous patio spanning the width of the property and providing ample space to alfresco dine and entertain. There is a side access gate leading to block paved off-road parking for 2/3 cars, and to the front of the property there is attractive paving, planted boarders and shrub beds sitting in front of an attractive rusticated post and rail fence, grass area and specimen trees.
