The spacious and elegantly presented accommodation includes three well-proportioned reception rooms, breakfast kitchen plus utility/boot room, cloakroom, family bathroom, separate shower room, five double bedrooms and a master suite. The driveway leads to the integral double garage and generous parking area alongside and there is easy access to the various commuter transport links within just a few minutes.
The timber panelled door with bulls-eye glass insert opens to the vestibule with quarry tiled floor and recessed down-light.
The further inner door with glazed upper opens to the hallway having two pendant lights and a staircase with spindle balustrade rising to the first-floor landing. A cupboard beneath offers storage and a further small cupboard houses the gas energy meter. Both traditional style and decoratively covered central heating radiators are strategically placed throughout the residence and supplement the warmth from the fire places in the three reception rooms.
To the side of the hall, a broad opening gives way to the morning room which features decorative coving and a leaded bay window to welcome the early sun. A brick ingle houses a multi fuel stove which sits on the quarry tiled hearth and doors open to both the family room and the principal lounge.
The comfortable family room has sliding patio doors which open to the terrace and features a surrounding plate rack, pendant light and a “hole in the wall” fire place with an original leaded bookcase directly above whilst further fitted hand-painted dressers are placed to either side of the chimney breast.
The principal, triple aspect lounge has leaded windows to the front, side and rear. The focal point of the room is the brick ingle fire surround which houses the log burning stove and rests on a quarry tiled hearth, extended to one side to support the log basket. There is a wall mounted television point alongside the chimney breast and pendant and wall lighting offer evening ambience.
The superb breakfast kitchen is the family hub and is fitted with a range of hand-painted built-in cabinets and dressers with oak worktops plus a large island unit having a black granite counter with an inset stainless-steel sink unit. A further black granite counter surrounds the inset Belfast sink having an etched drainer to the side and set beneath the side window. Cooking facilities are provided by the Falcon five-burner gas range cooker which is nestled into its own tiled niche and recessed down-lights showcase the area. There are two leaded windows to the side and French windows open to the garden beyond the dining table space which has two pendant lights above.
A door opens to the utility/boot room which has a leaded window to the side and a combined window and door to the rear garden. The ceramic tiled floor supports the further range of painted wall and base units with timber tops and has a further Belfast sink unit on exposed brick stands, plumbing for an automatic washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. There is also space on one wall for a coats rack and shoe shelves and a door opens to the integral double garage which has power and light, electronically controlled up and over door, an interior w.c. and wash basin with sliding door, space for additional white goods and a workshop area.
Completing the ground floor accommodation, the cloakroom is fitted with a white two-piece suite comprising a pedestal wash basin with splash tiling above, and a low flush w.c. The floor is tiled, there is an inset spotlight and a niche bookshelf.
The first-floor landing has two leaded windows to the front, three pendant lights for evening use and an access point with Slingsby-style drop down ladder to the boarded loft with roof light. Stripped pine doors open to each of the rooms and, to the far end of the landing, a large, floor to ceiling door conceals the linen cupboard with shelves and a radiator, for perfect airing.
The master suite has a corridor with sliding door wardrobes to one side and, situated opposite, a dressing room fitted with clothes rails, drawers and shelves. Adjacent is the en suite with a tiled corner shower cubicle, a vanity set console wash basin with mixer tap and illuminated mirror over, and a low flush w.c. The dual aspect bedroom enjoys fabulous far reaching rural views to the side and rear. There is a further built-in wardrobe and more than ample space for additional bedroom furniture of choice.
Immediately at the top of the staircase, bedroom five has a leaded window to the front, a radiator and a pendant light. Next to that is bedroom six which is currently being used as a home office and has a leaded window to the rear.
Tiled to dado height, the shower room has a three-piece white suite comprising a tiled corner shower cubicle with curved doors, pedestal wash hand basin and low flush w.c. plus a chrome ladder style radiator to warm the towels.
Part way along the landing, a separate wash room is fitted with a high flush toilet and classic Twyfords wash hand basin. The area is tiled to dado height and has a leaded window to the front and vinyl flooring.
Bedroom two is a dual aspect room with views to the side and rear. The semi-vaulted ceiling has a pendant light and fitted wardrobes with glazed inserts line one wall having cupboards above.
Bedroom three, a further double, has two front windows, a pendant light and space for wardrobes and drawer banks.
Bedroom four has a rear window, pendant light and also has ample space for clothes storage furniture.
These three bedrooms are served by the family bathroom with a leaded window to the front and which is tiled or wall panelled to dado height and has timber effect vinyl flooring, a wall and pendant light. The white suite comprises a panelled bath, pedestal wash hand basin and a large shower cubicle with glass sliding doors and a Triton T80 power shower.
The property is approached via two gateposts to a driveway turning and parking area for several cars and also to the integral double garage. Hedged by high laurels, the front garden is laid to lawn and wraps around to the broad, side garden of this corner-plot property, and continues on to the rear garden.
The charming rear garden has a raised, flagged sun terrace stretching across the rear elevation offering an ideal al fresco dining space with a stunning rural vista. From two points on the terrace, steps lead down to the extensive lawn garden which is lined by laurel hedges and surrounded by a riot of evergreens, conifers and a few deciduous specimen trees thrown in for good measure but, all-in-all, creating a stunning backdrop to this epitome of a true family home.
