A fine example of a unique detached property boasting particularly attractive elevations set amongst quintessentially British landscaped gardens.
It is hard to believe the property is only four years old and one cannot underestimate the carefully considered design elements that make this a beautiful home. Visually it commands period charm, yet with all the trappings of modern comfort, and a house that is environmentally friendly too with a high 'B' energy rating delivered by a 'rainwater harvesting system' and (discreet) solar panels to the roof.
There are many interesting features, but one that is worthy of particular mention is the lovely atrium style 'floor to ceiling' windows in the centre of the property over the two principle floors, cleverly distributing natural light in what is usually a darker area. The entire space is also enhanced by a lantern roof light spreading light down to the broad staircase and open landings, which in turn, provides distinctive balustrades. Wonderful living spaces are filled with luxury features including stunning bespoke Crittall windows, underfloor heating throughout, integrated Sonos sound system, cat 6 wiring and a 5 amp lighting circuit.
Turning to the accommodation; an inviting receiving hall is laid with herringbone style porcelain tiles and includes a guest cloakroom and cloaks cupboard. To the right of the hall you will find the front aspect study/tv room. A roof lantern allows light to flood into the room which also boasts bespoke shelving and an attractive sash window furnished with plantation shutters.
At the rear of the house you will find a rather impressive open plan kitchen/dining/family room laid with attractive herringbone wood flooring. Three large 'French doors' really accentuate the relationship with the garden, benefitting from electric blinds, and running the width of this open plan space, giving access to the garden from both the kitchen and family areas.
The DeVOL kitchen was hand crafted to a traditional style and includes a range of wall and base mounted cabinetry, complete with granite worktops, a breakfast island, integrated appliances and a Range cooker with gas oven. The dining and family areas include an open fire creating a cosy ambience. A useful utility room is located opposite the kitchen and provides further storage, second dishwasher, and external side access. Completing the accommodation on this floor is a separate living room with open working fire, and an attractive bay window which is also furnished with plantation shutters.
The first floor reveals a master bedroom suite including an en suite bathroom featuring twin basins, a separate free standing bath and double shower as well as a fabulous dressing room boasting Tissettanta fitted wardrobes. Fantastic leafy views of the garden can be enjoyed from both the bedroom / dressing room (& second ensuite bedroom) through the large bespoke windows. There are three further good sized bedrooms on this floor, one with en suite, and a family bathroom.
On the second floor you will find a further bedroom and a shower room as well as a large and versatile bonus room ideal as a games/cinema room or office. A useful laundry room and eaves storage completes the accommodation.
Externally the property is approached via a gravelled driveway providing ample parking for several cars. There is also an attached New England style garage offering further parking or easily accessible storage facilities.
To the rear there is a large tastefully landscaped garden featuring twin terraces, ideal for al fresco dining, and strategically placed for both shaded areas and sunlight. The garden is extensively planted with architectural plants and trees with specimen shrubs, raised herb and flower beds. A stylish pagoda with power, lawn area and a large vegetable garden are situated behind a picket fence. In addition there is a greenhouse and separate shed whilst the garden includes external ambient lighting.
