GREAT FAMILY HOME – Ok so it’s always slightly tougher when selling a colleague’s home, you never know what to say, but in this case it’s quite simple, it’s a well-balanced, well-kept beauty, unlike me!
On arrival you have a good size driveway, so important today with children getting to driving age before you know it, not to mention their friends and other guests.
The central entrance hall is home to a WC and impressive turning staircase, straight through to the large kitchen / breakfast room or right to the living spaces. We’ll go living space first, a beautiful living room, square-ish in shape so very easy to furnish and switch around if you fancy a change. The feature fireplace gives a focal point, and the large, glazed doors give access and views to the garden whilst also letting natural light flood in.
A double width opening then takes you through to the dining room, this works really well as it gives a real open plan feel and look yet you could close this off if it suited you more. Essentially, it’s another lovely space that can change its’ use as life changes.
Off to the kitchen / breakfast room and what a cracking space this is too, again it works with a real open plan style yet in defined spaces so it’s the best of both worlds, the kitchen area is well-fitted with contrasting units and work surface which is always a winner. The breakfast area then takes a lovely size table and chairs with room to spare along with the door to the gardens. From here a further door takes you through to a large storeroom or office which was formally the garage, potential here (stp) if wanted to go the whole way …..?
Now we move upstairs, and I’d ask you to pay attention as you rise up, and then linger on the landing for a moment, strange I know but this really is a feature for me, but you’ll see what I mean. So we have four lovely bedrooms up here and the family bathroom. The bedrooms are all doubles with the master and bedroom two both having built-in furniture, the master then also having an en suite. Three and four are then a good shape to furnish and quite equal in size so no arguments between siblings, problem averted.
Outside we go, so we’ve already covered the frontage but don’t forget how important this is. To the rear we have a good garden, it’s how I prefer it, large central lawn and beds around the outside but if you fancy something, well, more ‘fancy’ then you can create it. You do have the patio area which is large enough to sit, bathe or get the BBQ out so this is covered too so all in all we’re looking pretty good.
