Once inside, you are greeted by a welcoming reception hall, which has a recently re-fitted luxury guest cloakroom with underfloor heating for those chilly winter mornings. With built-in cupboards flanking the stairs, there’ll be no need for hallway clutter, and you’ll never be short of storage for all those coats, boots, and toys. With many people taking to hybrid working, or working from home, the study/reception room offers the purchasers the rare luxury of workspace without encroaching on the family living space. This room also has its own private loft area for storage.
The spacious lounge runs the entire depth of the property, with a window to the front and patio doors to the rear, maximising the natural light. You’ll be able to entertain with ease and relax in this spacious family room. The layout lends itself to having one large living space or creating a separate area at the front end – perhaps a dining table or play area for the children.
The hub of the family home is the kitchen, and you won’t be disappointed with this outstanding open plan kitchen diner. From the hustle and bustle of early morning breakfasts to relaxed family time at evenings and weekends, this kitchen is a cook’s dream. With two built-in Lamona ovens, a microwave, induction hob and two dishwashers, there’ll be no more juggling of oven shelves or arguments over the washing up. There’s also full-sized fridge and freezer and waste disposal organiser. Finished in cream, there’s plenty of storage space with low level units and units above the worktops, including a marble-topped centre island. A set of double doors lead out to the garden, with a separate doorway from the kitchen leading to the conservatory. There are additional worktops and storage cupboards in the adjacent utility room, which also has space for two washing machines and a tumble dryer.
If you want to escape to a quiet place, the conservatory has excellent garden views and is large enough to accommodate two sofas. Alternatively, it would make a fabulous dining area, being separate from the kitchen yet close enough to still be a focal point for friends and family to enjoy.
Stairs from the reception hall lead to a galleried first floor landing with loft access. Purchasers of this property may wish to consider a loft conversion, adding further space and value to the home. The good-sized master bedroom overlooks the front of the property and features a space-saving built in cupboard and sitting area, whilst the en suite shower room has a spacious walk-in shower and underfloor heating.
Bedrooms two, three and four are all double-sized rooms overlooking the rear of house. Each room features built-in mirror-fronted wardrobes as well as a built-in dressing table to bedroom two. Bedroom 5 is currently used as a dressing room and is fitted with floor-to-ceiling built-in wardrobes. Finished to a high standard identical to the en suite in the master bedroom, the family shower room is located off the galleried landing.
To the rear of the house lies the garden, which can be accessed via double doors from both the lounge and kitchen, as well as a gated side access from the front of the property. Thoughtfully laid out with patio and decked seating areas located at different points, the garden enjoys a good level of privacy. Wile away summer afternoons entertaining friends and family with barbecues or sit quietly and enjoy the peace over a cuppa in the sun.
