Leading from here you have a huge utility and boot room, again well-fitted with sleek units and contrasting counter tops. This then takes you through to an inner hallway and onto the annexe, we’ll come back to that later.
We then have the office or bedroom six and this is where things start to get interesting. You can live in this home in so many ways and it can change as life changes. There are three further bedrooms on the ground floor but again they can be reception spaces, work rooms or family spaces if you prefer, and now we will come back to the annexe before we go upstairs to the stunning master suite.
The annexe is such a key part here for the right buyer. It works as a self-contained annexe with bathroom and kitchen/ utility for family who come to stay for slightly longer than you may want, teenage annexe for those older children who have got to an age where you don’t really want them waking you up when they roll in, or indeed a separate workspace.
We now come to your hideaway, the master suite. You may expect the head height to be somewhat restricted in a home of this style but it’s totally the opposite with a beautiful part vault feature and huge floor space giving the feel of a hotel suite and the finish and size of the immense en suite simply highlights this point. The feature ceiling in this space takes large Velux windows allowing light to pour in. The freestanding tub sits below two of these on marble flooring which they have run continuously up behind the bath itself creating another stunning feature. His and hers washbasins sit in a modern, sleek cabinet with huge mirror above and then the large walk-in shower shouts pure class.
Moving outside we have already covered the gated frontage, but the rear gardens are just as impressive. A large, shaped terrace gives room to relax or entertain while taking in the sun or even on those crisper days a great spot for a firepit and allows all to gather round. The remainder of the garden has very sensibly been left to grass, there is so much you could do here but with ideas and designs being so personal it’s something you can develop as you wish …. Outside kitchen?
An original summerhouse has been refurbished to allow for some immediate storage for those vital bits you’ll bring with you, even if just somewhere to store the cushions for the outside furniture.
So, there we have ‘The Laurels’ and I have to say we all love it, a unique home yes, but it’s supposed to be, it’s lovely to have something a bit different so do get in touch for a private tour.
