Located on a winding country lane and set beyond electric gates, this striking, detached and elevated residence has been refurbished over several years to create a superb, elegantly presented family home. The accommodation comprises a splendid living dining kitchen, four further reception rooms, four double bedrooms – master having en suite, plus ancillary store and utility areas. The Tarmacadam driveway provides parking for numerous cars and leads to a detached double garage whilst the surrounding, extensive lawn gardens offer magnificent far reaching rural aspects.
A black composite door with glazed inserts and side panels opens to the vestibule with inset spotlights and porcelain tiled flooring which continues through a second door into the hallway and several of the living areas. This beautiful home is warmed by wood pellet central heating, has double glazing throughout and pendant or recessed downlighting for evening illumination. From the hall, a contemporary glass balustrade staircase rises and turns to the first floor and oak panelled doors open to each of the rooms off including the boot room which also houses the Control 4 comms system.
The media room is the first port of call, having a picture window to the front and windows to either side of the granite fireplace surrounding a log burning stove. Perimeter downlighting and Sonos sound speakers give superb ambience to this room and the ceiling mounted Epson projector is angled towards the screen measuring approximately 2.5m x 1.5m.
Also enjoying the Sonos sound system, the striking living-dining-kitchen has windows and bi-folding doors to two sides, maximising the stunning views of the garden and beyond, and the porcelain tiled flooring reflects the light to enhance the more than ample number of Nolte cabinets and Corian work-surfaces which incorporate a sink unit with swan neck mixer tap and an integrated dishwasher beneath. A wall-lined bank of cabinets integrates a superb range of V-Zug appliances to include an oven and grill, combination microwave and oven, steamer oven and coffee maker. Four dining spaces include a breakfast bar, kitchen table, formal dining area and a circular morning coffee counter. Alongside is room for a lounge suite to relax whilst watching a wall mounted television.
An additional sitting room, to the front, also has a wall mounted television and could be changed to provide bedroom five.
The master bedroom has a picture window to the rear with concealed downlighting above, perimeter lighting and a wall mounted television point. The luxurious en suite is fully porcelain tiled in natural shades with bronze mosaic detail and forming the backdrop to the white contemporary style suite of trough-style vanity set wash basin with twin waterfall taps, a wall mounted w.c. and shower cubicle with electronic rainfall and hand sprays, plus a heated chrome ladder to warm the towels.
Bedroom two overlooks the front garden and the elevated rural views beyond and is fitted with a range of wardrobes with central dressing table. This bedroom is served by the sumptuous bathroom, fully tiled in neutral shades and having a chrome ladder heated rail. The white Villeroy & Boch suite comprises a tile panelled bath with hand shower, wall mounted wash hand basin with a mono-block tap and a toiletries drawer beneath, wall mounted w.c. and a shower cubicle with glass door and rainfall head.
A glazed door part way along the hallway opens to further rooms including the laundry room with under-floor heated Karndean flooring and fitted with high-gloss linen storage cabinets to one wall and bleached oak effect worktops to the other having an inset sink unit and under-counter space and plumbing for white goods and a wine chiller. A door gives way to the garden from here.
The rear hall also has a store room which houses the CCTV equipment and a staircase descends to the gymnasium with two windows to the front, a mirrored wall and a ceiling dotted with recessed downlights and Sonos speakers. A door opens to a small vestibule with under-stairs cupboard, a fully tiled shower room with w.c. off, and a door to the front drive. A further door leads to the games room with large ceiling spotlights and a storeroom housing the wood-pellet boiler heating controls and water tanks.
This lower floor would be ideal as a self-contained annex for a dependent relative or even a home office without encroaching on home privacy.
The first-floor landing opens into an apex-window sitting room giving optimum stunning views over adjoining Greenbelt farmland.
Just off the landing are two double bedrooms, each with side windows, fitted wardrobes and television points. Both are served by a fully tiled bathroom with Velux window, heated towel rail and white suite of panelled bath and wet-room style shower plus a separate fully tiled w.c. with vanity set wash basin.
The property is set beyond a hawthorn hedge boundary and a cobbled apron gives way to the electronically controlled, wrought iron double entrance gates, with a further matching set for exiting the property. The Tarmacadam driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles and leads to the detached double garage with electric roller shutter door, power and light currently partly set up as an amazing golf simulator room.
A sweeping block paved path, with lawns to either side, rises to the front door of the white rendered property. A flagged path edges the property and the wrap-around and laurel hedged lawn from which steps descend to the extensive sun terrace and barbecue area with Sonos sound system. The garden revels in the magnificent, Greenbelt rural aspects which offer a haven for wildlife including the elusive albino deer which are a delight to spot. Further around the garden, steps descend again to give access to the Astro-turfed children’s play area and cricket nets.
