We are all very quick to decide what we would do to a property, how we would change it or what it is missing but every now and then we come across a home and really struggle to think of what we would do differently ..... this is one such home.
It didn`t come as a surprise when we discovered that the current owners actually imagined, planned and created this home for themselves, it explains the attention to detail, quality finish and extra little touches that we will point out as we show you around. As soon as you pull into the drive you`ll know if this is for you; the elevations are unique, so you know you won`t be driving down the road and seeing another one, and there is a feeling of solid build, proper construction, security.
The screening to the front boundary is already substantial but the secondary laurel is maturing well and in time will give even more privacy and seclusion. Thoughtful use of sleepers and stones keeps this large frontage very much in keeping with the mature semi-rural surroundings and provides ample parking options for you, extended family and guests.
Moving inside you are greeted with a sizeable, warm entrance hall with oak flooring, room to get shoes and coats off and greet guests; the attractive open spindled staircase acts as a piece of furniture providing a feature to this space and adding to the feel. You have three lovely reception rooms to the ground floor and can use these as you wish, all good sizes but also good shapes - the shape makes them easy to furnish, no long skinny rooms here. The standout kitchen is some 21ft in length and gives you that fantastic space that all families like to live in nowadays. Room to cook (pretty important), entertain and live in day to day with the family.
French doors and dual aspect windows give access and views out onto the private gardens which also have really well established boundaries, giving heaps of privacy, not to mention wildlife: well, I saw two squirrels so you get the idea. Thinking on, we do have an idea about this room`s further scope, which we’ll be glad to share with you when we are here. Moving upstairs the quality continues as you would hope. The master bedroom is beautiful, two rear aspect windows looking out across the gardens, carefully built-in wardrobes and the most stunning en suite with a lovely finish. The main guest bedroom features similar cottage style built-in wardrobes, lending it great character Bedrooms three and four are also double bedrooms with feature ceilings that really work, and the huge family bath and shower room is again exquisite. The attention to detail is so apparent, the flooring, lighting, tiling are all so well thought out you really do just stand there and admire.
