Property
Description

As you wander in from the perfectly presented formal front gardens and considerable enclosed driveway with low curved brick wall displaying the properties’ namesake plaque, a practical covered entrance constructed by the current owners brings you neatly into the airy reception hallway, with its plush carpeting, neutral décor, stairs rising to the first-floor level and private, convenient access to the ground floor shower room alongside the integrated garage. A door beside the stairway flows naturally into the substantial front-facing living space, boasting a vast, striking stone-built feature fireplace. With its long timber beam and a gleaming central copper hammered chimney, it creates both a wonderful talking point and a desirable focal aspect of the comfortable room, which is simply ideal for receiving guests and peacefully lounging of an evening after a hectic day. Head directly through from the luxurious reception hallway and you’ll find yourself in the impressive open plan kitchen and dining room, which were the subject of an all-encompassing refurbishment in 2020. The beautiful contemporary kitchen has far-reaching views across to the evergreen trees of the lush gardens and wide sliding glass doors onto the conservatory, as well as an extensive selection of modern, dove grey shaker-style corniced wall and base cabinetry arranged in an L-formation, with high-quality worktops, integrated ovens, a central breakfast bar and cooking island with inset induction hob and sleek minimal stainless-steel extractor above and gorgeous complementary tiled flooring. Ample dining space adjacent to the gloriously sunny conservatory creates an ideal ambience in which to enjoy each and every mealtime. The conservatory, added in 1999, provides yet another space to unwind or entertain, enjoying both views and access to the handsome gardens and creating that indoor\outdoor living feel that so many modern families crave. Alongside the kitchen is a brilliantly useful utility with uniformly corresponding base storage units and high-quality worktops, a sink and room for the appropriate appliances, beside which is the handy cloakroom.

Take the wooden staircase with its lavish grey carpets and cut-out glass panels to the first floor and you will be greeted by a soothing landing, branching out onto the four excellently-proportioned bedrooms. From here, the vast loft space is also easily accessed, offering an abundance of potential for further conversion into the rooms of your desire or need. Two of the bedrooms, including the principal suite, enjoy the use of contemporary en suite shower rooms with walk-in shower cubicles, whilst three of the four rooms also benefit from extensive bespoke built-in wardrobe and storage solutions, offering a plethora of space to keep clothing, shoes and all manner of accessories out of sight for tidy, stress-free living. The floor is duly completed with the spacious family bathroom, which well serves the bedrooms to either side.

SECONDARY ACCOMMODATION

The property was originally constructed with not one but two attached garages, allowing the current owners to cleverly convert one of these plentiful spaces into a highly desirable self-contained apartment. Ideal for either multi-generational living or as a quiet work from home space, the annexe comprises a bright and peaceful bedroom with an en suite bathroom, with a door separating a well-appointed living space with a purpose-built kitchen and ample room to dine, relax and socialise. Accessed via the rear terrace and gardens via a small entrance vestibule, it also boasts effortless access onto the light-filled conservatory.


GARDENS & GROUNDS

The thoughtfully designed and meticulously kept rear gardens provide an oasis of calm in this peaceful rural setting, enclosed via neatly trimmed hedging. The private outdoor space is arranged with a plethora of pathways and terraces created by various sections of paving, interspersed with vividly colourful borders, blossoming rose bushes and sections of gravel, whilst a larger terrace with a pergola above offers the perfect spot in which to dine al fresco among charming climbing plants. One of the many advantages of the garden is it is incredibly low maintenance and yet with its variety of plants and diversity of shrubbery, still simultaneously provides everything one could want from their outdoor haven throughout each and every season. A useful shed attached to the home offers additional storage space for tools, bicycles and outdoor furniture, whilst the precisely gravelled driveway and formal gardens with carefully placed shrubbery to the front façade lead up to the integrated garage and create sufficient parking spaces for several vehicles.
