A modern and bespoke split level detached house constructed circa 1985 and tucked away enjoying extreme privacy. Maronetta was built to an exacting design and specification with high quality materials, big picture windows and sits within a manageable plot. Constructed from brick elevation under a pitched and tiled roof, the versatile interior offers generous principal rooms, three bedrooms and two bathrooms and yet still offers scope for the new incumbent to create their own individual space.
Approached via a block paved and gated carriage drive, there is a sizable integrated double garage and pedestrian paths either side of the house. Internally the reception hall drops down to the principal room which is dual aspect and enjoys views via large picture windows over the well maintained garden. There is a dining room with more elevated views extending over Sneyd Park and towards the Welsh hills and the adjacent kitchen has a comprehensive range of wall and base units with various integrated appliances. The utility room has a half glazed door to the side passage which is covered. The three bedrooms are well served by the family bathroom with an additional shower room and there are two good store cupboards as well as loft access.
There are gardens predominantly to the south west of the house, principally laid to lawn and well screened with a heavily planted curtilage. Established borders include Rhodedenrum and Laurel and there is a raised terrace directly in front of the kitchen which surveys the garden and enjoys the sunny orientation.
