A handsome and beautifully appointed, 6-bedroom detached, modern home sitting in an enviable position in a quiet close with charming views and a pretty, well maintained garden. Built in 1989, the property benefits from extensive upgrades, with recently installed high specification kitchen and bathrooms – 4 in total with two being en-suite.
On the ground floor; light and spacious entrance hallway with central galleried staircase with exposed brick wall that offers attractive sight lines over 3 floors. Internal access to the double garage, newly refurbished cloakroom / wc with stylish sink / vanity unit and back lit mirror, bright open plan kitchen / breakfast-dining room with recently installed high specification units, integral appliances including a double oven. The central island, breakfast table and work tops are finished in exceptional granite being perfectly paired with the large beige floor tiles. Adjacent pantry / utility room with door to side garden, useful family room (currently used as home office) is next to the open plan breakfast room with attractive wooden flooring and large patio doors which provide access onto the stone tiled terrace forming part of the rear garden. This family room flows into a formal dining room which is currently also open plan, leading into a cosy sitting room at the front of the house, with a feature bay window and attractive brick-built inglenook fire place including wooden mantel and efficient wood burner at its heart.
Accessed by the feature staircase is the 1st floor; with a bright landing, spacious master bedroom (1- large double) at the front of the property with useful mirrored built-in wardrobes, dressing alcove, exceptional, recently refurbished en-suite bathroom with stunning egg-shaped bath, back lit mirrors, ample storage units and high specification walk in shower. The adjacent guest suite / bedroom (2 - large double) with 3 mirrored built in wardrobes is serviced by another pristine en-suite bath room with walk in shower. There are 2 further double bedrooms (Bedroom’s 3 & 4) on this floor with an immaculate family bathroom with shower above the bath as well as a handy storage unit.
The 2nd floor is self-sufficient makes an ideal internal granny / nanny annexe. It includes; a large rectangular double bedroom (5), a neat family shower room and a further, unusually large L-shaped double bedroom (6) that could easily accommodate a small kitchenette, making it the ideal space for annexe purposes.
A real plus is the large amount of additional under-eave storage available within the property. The ceiling space (16m2) over the ‘family room’ is accessed via a door from bedroom 3 being part-boarded with internal lighting. The ceiling space over the bedroom 2 /garage (15m2) is accessed via a door from bedroom 6 and is also part-boarded with internal lighting. The ceiling space over the main en-suite and bedroom 3 is accessed via a door and is boarded out. The extra space is considerable and avoids wasting a formal room and while the boarding covers half the of the aforementioned eves storage areas, these areas are considerably more use than an attic and could be fully boarded out if required at a later date.
To the front of the property there is a small garden laid to lawn, ample driveway parking for at least 3 cars leading to a smart double garage with separate electric doors. The rear of property benefits from an attractive garden made up of a stone tile terrace / patio, charming flower beds, established borders with a selection of well-maintained shrubs, mature trees and access to the pretty path and stream that flows at the foot of the garden which offers delightful and secluded views.
