This unique property has been extended and updated to the highest standard and now offers a luxury home nestling in the midst of large gardens, surrounded by fields on the edge of a prestigious cul-de-sac in Preston village. It is approached via a long and winding gravel drive, flanked by lawns and impressive trees leading to the garage and off road parking. This amazing house includes a variety of roof angles, Canadian Cape Cod cladding, Juliette balconies and a plethora of large windows. Nearing the front door you are welcomed by the fountain tinkling in the lily pond and, once inside, you can begin to appreciate the effort that has gone into creating this lovely house. There is a superb light and bright open plan kitchen & dining areas with five bi-folding doors to the non-slip decking and a large central island/breakfast bar and modern units housing everything needed for the most ardent of cooks. The large lounge/diner has original teak parquet flooring, a sloping roof and vast picture window as well as a charming fireplace and log burner and a door to an en-suite guest room. Also on the ground floor is a fitted coat room, cloakroom and a study as well as a sitting room/snug with fitted cupboards and three bi-folding doors, a large en-suite double bedroom and a fitted utility room. An open tread staircase leads to the upstairs bedrooms that include a double en-suite bedroom with French doors to a Juliette balcony and the main bedroom with its huge sloping ceiling, vast corner picture windows with French doors and Juliette balconies, a trendy dressing room area and a fabulous bathroom. Outside a purpose built office and a summerhouse are surrounded by a large lawn, specimen trees and raised shrub borders and a granite patio leads round to the front garden that includes a greenhouse and garden shed.
What the Owner says:
“We fell in love with the surroundings including the gorgeous garden and the very private environment as well as with the house. In fact many people have told us that they didn't even realise this house was here. It was originally a Colt bungalow but has been extended over the years and we could see the potential to extend and improve even further. We have added an extension in the kitchen to include the dining area and the bi-folding doors as well as building a second storey. During the time we have been here we have renovated everything and upgraded the fittings such as oak doors and large picture windows to ensure it is a very light and bright home as we thought it would be our home for many years. However circumstances have dictated that we need to move but hope that new owners will be able to appreciate everything we have done.
We love the area and the village as well as our own friendly neighbourhood community. There is a village shop, the historic Half Moon and Seven Stars pub that has been serving ale since 1570 and a wonderful garden centre with a cafe that does amazing food as does the Rising Sun pub in the next village of Stourmouth. It is a quiet and peaceful place and yet we are not too far from the Minster Service Station with its very useful co-op.
