Quiet Cul De Sac LocationQUIET CUL DE SAC LOCATION - This substantial family home was purchased off plan by the current owners and has been their home ever since and was the property where they raised their family. Why am I telling you this? Because this property is nestled away at the end of a cul de sac off Manor Park Drive and is in the type of location that people just do not move away from. Why, I hear you ask? Because it has everything you could possibly ask for - the houses are well built, are an excellent size and the location itself is is quiet, close to well regarded schools, great local amenities and good road links.
So on to this house specifically - there`s plenty of driveway parking with enough space for 4 cars. We shouldn`t forget that there is a double garage which is accessible from the front, side and through the utility room from inside the house. Walking in to the house on the left hand side is a reception room which has had various uses over the years - a family room, playroom and is currently used a secondary dining room with an additional storage cupboard.
On the right hand side of the hallway is a study which has been fully fitted so has a large desk and various shelves and drawers. The downstairs cloakroom is just next door and this was refitted around 12 months ago - there`s an under-stairs storage area which is accessed through the downstairs cloakroom. The main living room has double aspect windows as well as sliding doors out to the garden and an open fire which does have a gas feed if you wanted to change things up - we think it`s great as it is though!
We always have our favourite area in each house and in this one, I`ll be honest, I was torn between the kitchen and the master bedroom! More about the bedroom shortly.
The kitchen is really smart, with high gloss cream cupboards, stone worktops and large breakfast bar as well as built in appliances including a dishwasher, hob, double oven, freezer and a large fridge - every family needs one of those! There are double doors which lead through from the kitchen into the garden room - this is a really impressive room which has access to the utility room but more importantly plenty of space for a large dining table as well as a sofa. This room is light, bright and airy and can be used in the summer and winter making it that perfect additional reception room which was added on by the current owners.
Upstairs, the house has been extended tastefully so it flows really well. As you go up the stairs you have the choice of turning left or right. Left takes you to the master suite (this was the bit I was also really excited about!) which comprises a large bedroom spanning over 15 ft by 13 ft with a huge amount of built in storage as well as an en suite with `his and hers` sinks, also an additional room which is being used as a gym at the moment but I have a sneaky suspicion that if I were to revisit this house in a couple of years time, it would be being used as a dressing room.
The original master bedroom (now bedroom two) is large in size and again has built in wardrobes as well as an en suite which has a bath with a shower over; something you don`t usually find in an en suite. All five bedrooms are well proportioned and really do set this place aside from a lot of other detached family homes.
The house enjoys a southerly aspect meaning the garden has the sun all day long which is ideal as there is a large patio area which stretches across the back of the property, perfect for eating outside on a summers evening.
This exclusive development is close to California Country Park and woodland as well as the FBC Centre, a local community facility that hosts various activities for both children and adults. The area is well serviced by excellent road links with the M4 and M3 motorways being in easy reach.
