One ChanceONE CHANCE - noir by david cliff - Ivy Cottage is set in the heart of the countryside along a beautifully quiet and leafy lane in the highly desired village of Farley Hill.
This is a unique home which was first renovated some 7 yrs ago and has since been totally refurbished and extended by the current owners to now offer some truly stunning living space.
The vaulted entrance leads you though to the first reception room or reception hall depending on how best you feel this space works for you, immediately you can see that this home is all about versatility, style it`s a true `one off`.
Rather than just take you room by room I think an over view will better here and then you can follow the flow on the floor plan to see how it all flows so well.
The heart of the home for modern living has to be the kitchen, dining family space if you are lucky enough to have this all in one area and the owner has very cleverly created this..... and it`s wonderful.
Walking in you notice the light flooding in, the overall room is triple aspect through windows and bi-fold doors, and this really was a genius decision and concept. The kitchen area itself is high end with smooth finish units ensuring good sleek lines and a wonderful large island unit with seating creating breakfast bar style eating. The smooth finished ceiling has had a cleverly designed plinth designed to add interest but also conceal the extraction so the `clean lines` theme continue. The open plan flow into the comfy seating area is just as you`d hope for, with two sets of bi-fold doors it has an incredible feels complete with rustic wood burning stove on the angle adding a cosy feel for winter time.
The main living room has its own features, for a start you have steps leading down in to it which instantly creates incredible ceiling heights giving and even bigger feel of space and light. There are two sets of doors to the rear leading out onto the raised feature decking and views into the copse beyond, on the flank wall you have a beautiful exposed brick fireplace with wood burner and tall windows to either side so again light, bright and views all around you.
An unexpected plus is the boot room come laundry room of a size that could easily be another reception room if you chose. The current owner has good need for this but you can decide how this can work for you and if not, you have options, particularly as there are double doors from this room out onto the feature raised deck too. The modern cloakroom then completes this impressive ground floor but to be completely honest you really do have to walk it in real time to begin to appreciate just how good this is.
Moving upstairs you have four bedrooms two en suites and a family bathroom. The master suite is as impressive and you`d hope for, a lovely square shaped room which only needs to take a bed as you have some fitted cupboards, walk in dressing room and the a gorgeous en suite bathroom which is a real feature.
You have a stunning free standing bath as the centre piece, very cool and classy in design. There is then a walk in shower, simple with glass screen and nothing else, a great look and then fully tiled with unit and oversized basin. Bedroom two has the full vaulted feature with exposed timbers, a lovely room with en suite and a special feel. Bedrooms three and four then share the family bathroom which has been converted to a shower room only, a good idea i think in this day and age and if you want a soak the bath in bedroom one is tough to beat.
