Immaculately offered, this stunning residence has been totally refurbished by the current owners to provide an exquisite home, set in substantial plot offering complete privacy and seclusion yet close to myriad amenities. Named “The Bungalow” yet set over two floors, the elegant accommodation briefly comprises an impressive hallway with four formal reception rooms off, an exceptional living-dining-kitchen with Corinthian bespoke, hand-made cabinetry, five double bedrooms to the first floor – two with luxurious en suite facilities – and a chic family bathroom.
A broad, mullion-set, solid timber door with fanlight, two side windows and a stone edged feature circular window above, opens into the impressive hallway having a galleried landing overlooking the area. Replicating its historic neighbour for elegance, the interior décor has been thoughtfully considered and exquisitely presented throughout. The hallway is lit by a chandelier point and two wall lights, warmed by a traditional style radiator and the oak flooring continues beyond an oak framed opening into the inner hallway and the principal accommodation of the dining room, lounge and games room.
To the side of the hall, there is a boot room with fitted coat stand and basket-drawers. The exposed brick flooring also gives way to the cloakroom with opaque window and two-piece white suite with subway splash tiling and a chrome heated towel rail.
A second oak beamed opening gives way to the charming dining room which has, two windows to the rear, a chandelier point over the table space and four wall lights for evening ambience.
A further opening from the inner hall gives way to the generously spacious, triple aspect drawing room having a window to the side, two windows to the rear and French doors to the side and rear. This delightful room features a stone flagged hearth with exposed oak beam over the ingle fireplace which houses a log burning stove with a wood store alongside. A wall mounted television point is sited above and there are three traditional style radiators to warm in chillier times.
The games room/bar has a window and French doors to the rear garden. Two traditional style radiators warm the room and there is recessed down-lighting and an industrial-style pendant light with three lanterns over the pool table space. In addition, three pendant lights are suspended above the marble-topped bar which stands proud of the stainless-steel units with inset sink and mixer tap whilst beyond is a marble counter with integrated drinks chiller, fridge, freezer and glass shelves.
A beamed opening gives way into the exceptional living dining kitchen with stone flagged flooring continuing through each. The living room has two windows to the rear, exposed ceiling beams and rafters, and an eye-catching brick-back fireplace of granite hearth with a Firefox log burning stove and beam over. A television point sits to the side, there are three traditional style radiators and a central pendant light.
The library-style inner hallway with bookshelves leads through to the dining kitchen area where five lengthy, mullion-set, Georgian style windows overlook the front plus two windows to the side whilst, for evening time, there are recessed downlights and a pendant light over the table space.
An excellent range of Corinthian bespoke, hand-made, two-tone grey cabinets surround and incorporate drawers, a canopy niche for the four-oven Aga range cooker and inset extractor fan, a breakfast bar island plus an oak lined larder with integrated microwave oven, and a dresser in the dining room with display shelves. The purple and grey melange granite work surfaces blend perfectly and, within the island, have a white inset porcelain twin-bowl sink unit with lever-style swan-neck mixer tap and the boiling water tap over, and there is an automatic dishwasher alongside.
The utility room has a window and stable-style door to the rear and is lit by a wall light and fitted with kitchen complimentary cabinets with an inset porcelain sink unit. A door opens to the boiler room which houses the wall mounted Worcester Bosch boiler, hot water cylinder tank and pressure unit, and the electricity consumer board.

Triple aspect bedroom has Velux windows to the front, rear and side, recessed down-lighting, a pendant light and a traditional style radiator. There are storage cupboards, a wall mounted television point and fitted wardrobes to one wall. A glass panel in the wall also borrows a little light from bedroom four.

The property is approached via a private driveway, through a five-barred gate to a pebble approach with stone flagged frontage to the entrance door and having a stone wall-edged raised island borders with box hedging. Beautifully concealed by a variety of mature trees, a lone birch tree stands alongside the York stone-built rockery with central lily pond and waterfall. A low, timber single gate and timber double gates opens to the rear walled garden which is laid to lawn with a stepping stone path and raised sleeper-edged vegetable beds, raised box-tree and acer planting, and a slate-roofed log store.
