Bridleside is a superb and individually designed property built in 2019 and standing in a secluded and private corner plot with generous gardens to the front and rear. The property has been finished to a high standard with quality fixtures and fittings throughout, including solid oak doors and a fabulous oak turned staircase with tempered glass balustrade with fine oak hand rail.
Entering the reception hallway sets the standard for the rest of the property; the space is light and bright and gives access to all the downstairs accommodation along with stairs to the first floor.
The open plan sitting room, dining room and kitchen spans the depth of the property and is of generous proportions, with dual aspect, two sets of French doors to the front which lead to a private patio and sash windows to the rear. A freestanding contemporary circular wood burning stove on a sandstone hearth creates a focal point to the room, whilst to the rear there is ample room for a dining table and chairs. The kitchen area has an extensive mix of traditional and contemporary style floor and wall cabinetry with complementary work surfaces of oak and marble. Integral appliances include a sink, dishwasher, duel-fuel Rangemaster range with extractor hood over and an American style fridge-freezer. Bi-fold doors to the rear give access to the enclosed garden.
Off the reception hallway is a generous downstairs bedroom which sits to the rear of the property, complemented by an en-suite shower room. The study sits to the front of the property whilst a utility room and rear lobby offer a selection of further storage solutions. There is a useful cloakroom and access doors to the integral double garage.
The fabulous oak staircase leads to the upper landing. An open reception forms part of the landing and is a lovely light and bright space, benefitting from French doors with a balcony with tempered glass balustrade to take in the fabulous, uninterrupted countryside views. The master bedroom is filled with light and has an en-suite bathroom with freestanding contemporary bath, walk-in rainforest shower, heated towel rail and WC. To the opposite side of the upper landing are three further bedrooms; one with an en-suite shower room, whilst the other two are served by the family bathroom.
Bridleside sits in a corner plot at the end of a quiet lane and is approached through a five bar gate leading to an expansive gravel drive with parking for a number of vehicles. A double integral garage offers an electric up and over door, power and lighting. To the front of the property is a private garden, mainly laid to lawn with some fruit trees and perennial plantings and a hedged boundary which adds to the privacy. A private sun terrace sits to the corner and is accessed from the sitting room. To the rear, the garden is again mainly laid to lawn with a further sun terrace with fenced boundaries and uninterrupted views over open countryside.
