INCREDIBLE POTENTIAL - noir by david cliff - You really do need to see this home, two separate, three room annexes and plot to fully understand how much is on offer here..
A substantial 5 - 6 bedroomed family home, discreetly positioned on a sizeable plot at the quietest point in a much sought after unmade road, close to good state and private schools, with the potential for further development into a stunning non-estate residence.
Already significantly extended from an original 1930s bungalow by the previous owners and renovated and converted further by the existing owners, this property simply has to be viewed to comprehend the sheer size of living space it now offers.
All rooms are well proportioned and, as well as four bedrooms larger than standard doubles (three of which have built-in wardrobes along one wall) and a fifth bedroom in the main house, there are also two, three room annexes with three rooms each and both have the possibility of individual access from the road.
Together with planning permission for an extension to the side of the property connecting the existing kitchen with the converted garage and incorporating a new garage, utility area and extended L shaped luxury kitchen/breakfast room, the property offers exceptional existing living space and the potential for more. It is particularly suitable for buyers with extended families and varied interests requiring extra space, and for those with businesses to run from home.
Entrance Hallway – accessed through the porch - bright and airy – with an unusually high ceiling, immediately gives an impression of light and space continued throughout the house. Wooden staircase leading to galleried landing.
Study/office – features the original fireplace, is currently used as an office but would make an ideal dressing room or nursery adjoining the master suite
Master bedroom – tastefully decorated in neutral tones and with fitted wardrobes along one wall – leading to ensuite bathroom with whirlpool/ jacuzzi bath
Guest bedroom – similarly proportioned with the same high ceiling echoed throughout the ground floor of the property (more often found in a tall Edwardian townhouse than in a 1930s bungalow)
Family bathroom – of exceptional size, currently with bath and separate walk-in shower - with the potential to be divided into two shower rooms, one providing an ensuite to the guest bedroom next door and a separate toilet with shower accessed from the main corridoor. The current owners decided to delay this conversion until the side extension with utility room was built.
Living room – large open inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and oak beam over with space for firewood either side. Generously proportioned with large window to the garden.
Dining room – high ceilinged with ample space for table chairs and existing furniture on all sides and a large window giving access to the garden.
Kitchen – another light and airy room with back door giving access to the garden, updated but not renovated, as the current owners decided to delay this project until building the side extension with the new kitchen
Annexe 1 – converted triple length garage, including 3 separate rooms currently used as a home gym and cinema, with a galley kitchen, shower, toilet and separate music room/ bedroom 6
Annexe 2 – purpose- built granny annexe, incorporating 3 separate rooms with electricity and lighting but no water – currently used as storage for one of the family businesses
Galleried landing with wooden flooring throughout providing a light and airy dust- free environment. Access to loft space on both sides of the stairs.
Bedrooms 3 and 4 – both larger than standard doubles with ample room for king sized beds and furniture, including fitted wardrobes along one wall, with velux windows and windows to each side
Bedroom 5 – small double with velux window
Bathroom – with velux window and shower over bath
Large gravelled driveway with two five bar gates and parking for 6 + cars. Full length gates to right hand side giving access down side of house to rear garden and converted garage. Left hand side gate giving access to passageway to rear garden.
South facing Garden of approx. 90 ft length with annexes on either side of a raised lawned area, and backing onto privately owned woodland and a communal lawn belonging to 4 substantial properties in a gated complex off the Sandhurst Road. With mature shrubs and apple trees, mostly laid to lawn and offering a high degree of seclusion on all sides. Two separate patio areas on two levels, offering outdoor living spaces for morning and late afternoon or evening dining.
