LOCATION AND LIFESTYLE - noir by david cliff - There is nothing I love more than a character property, complete with traditional features yet a contemporary feel. This is just such a place, with glorious high ceilings and a stunning log burning fireplace, coupled with an open plan kitchen, and beautiful French doors looking out onto the well established garden.
Set in an extremely popular non-estate location, within walking distance of the outstanding Ofsted-rated Evendons Primary School and just a mile from the town centre, this period semi-detached property has been tastefully decorated and extended by the current owners to create an ideal home with four bedrooms, two reception rooms and a large kitchen dining room at the rear. What`s more, the house benefits from having a generous plot with a south-easterly aspect, providing plenty of sunshine.
There is ample parking to the front of the house and upon entry, prospective buyers will find themselves in an inviting hallway with the main living room on their left-hand side. Thanks to the large bay with sash windows and high ceilings, this room feels extremely light and airy, with the fireplace as a true focal point.
The original dining room is separate and currently used as a snug - this room works perfectly in a family dynamic. What I personally love about these two rooms is that they are incredibly versatile and can be adapted as your style of living changes and develops.
For me though, the WOW room is the kitchen dining room which provides a great space both for cooking and entertaining. The design and craftsmanship of the kitchen is exceptional, with traditional style cupboards offering extensive storage, along with granite worktops and integrated Neff and Bosch appliances. If lifestyle is the biggest attraction then this home offers it all.
The French doors at the back of the house open out on to a large patio area whilst the rest of the garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and a shed at the bottom. Off the kitchen there is a very practical utility room and downstairs cloakroom.
On the first floor the original master bedroom stretches across the front of the property, with two large sash windows, making this a beautiful room to relax in. Next door is the family bathroom which has been recently refitted by Designs for Living.
Bedrooms three and four are situated towards the rear of the property and enjoy views of the garden.
Just when you thought you`d seen it all, you ascend to the impressive and very well-designed master suite on the second floor, consisting of a large double bedroom, ample fitted wardrobe storage, and en suite. French doors with Juliette balcony open out to views over the garden and flood the room with light. I`ve seen many loft conversions in my time; this is one of the best!
This truly is a unique home in a great location, which has to be seen to be appreciated. Get in touch to arrange your viewing today.
