Property Description

Spindle Tree is a fabulous bay fronted family home occupying a wonderful centre of village position within close striking distance of the mainline station and amenities, and set well back from the road to a spacious, well planned design. The current owners have resided there for many years and in that time have greatly enlarged and vastly improved the property resulting in generously proportioned and beautifully presented accommodation. The gardens and grounds are both mature and private, about 0.2 acres and make a perfect family outdoor space. The accommodation comprises a generous reception hall with stairs to first floor accommodation, fitted coat cupboard and a refitted cloakroom/wc just off. There are three charming reception rooms including a sitting room with feature fireplace, a large bay fronted dining room, again with a feature fireplace, and a wonderful vaulted ceiling family room with a glazed rear elevation with French doors to garden, boasting air conditioning. The kitchen/breakfast room is very much the heart of this beautiful home and fitted with contemporary cabinetry, ample working surfaces with inset one and a half sink unit with mixer tap and drainer, second sink unit with filtered water tap, integrated five ring gas hob, twin oven, extractor and plate warming drawer, integral dishwasher and space for an American style fridge/freezer, and all complemented by Karndean flooring. Just off the kitchen is a handy utility room with base level and wall mounted storage cupboards, fitted work surfaces and space for the usual white goods plus a wall mounted gas fired central heating boiler.

Upstairs there is a galleried landing incorporating a generous study area with views over the front garden. There are four good sized bedrooms, three with fitted wardrobe cupboards and including the large master suite and guest bedroom, both with en suite facilities, plus a luxury family bathroom.

Outside the property is set back from the road, laid mainly to lawn with a generous driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles, and leading to a garage with up and over door, power and light connected and personal door to the rear garden. Gated access leads to the rear garden which measures over 150’ in length and is laid to shaped and manicured lawns with well stocked flower and shrub borders and beds. There is a wide and varied selections of specimen trees and bushes, a vegetable, herb and fruit garden, accompanied by a greenhouse and two timber sheds, and a large paved patio terrace, ideal for al fresco dining and summer evening entertaining. Gated access to the rear leads to Shelford Park Avenue which allows quick access to the mainline station.
