Millgate Homes have a reputation for building award winning houses of outstanding quality. They are of traditional construction; this includes concrete floors to the ground and first floor and generally solid internal walls. Millgate are known for paying meticulous attention to detail and finishing. There are nine separate detached executive residences within Woodham Gate; it is a private gated development adjacent to the Basingstoke Canal. Hatherton House is double fronted with an attractive cottage style porch. It is enhanced by cream uPVC double glazed windows plus timber soffits and fascias and also offers many special attributes. These include arguably the prettiest front elevations of all the properties within the development, hand cut tiles accentuated by attractive Dormer windows to three bedrooms, v joint pointing to quality traditional bricks with attractive detail to the corners of the house, the plinth and decorative brickwork over the ground floor window to the study, which continues around the side. Internally the specification is exacting and special features include a Mark Wilkinson Lansbury kitchen made from hand selected oak complimented by luxury Galaxy granite work surfaces and upstands, Miele appliances in stainless steel and unusually matching quality within the utility room. The bathrooms are furnished with designer white sanitary ware from Villeroy & Boch and the baths are from Vernon Tutbury. All have chrome fitments by Hansgrohe. All tiling throughout the house is tasteful and to the highest quality. There are TV, fm and telephone points to many rooms and an advanced Bang & Olufsen cable network enabling linking of both audio and video with full infrared remote control to pre-selected rooms. Further features include inset low voltage ceiling lights finished in chrome as is all the door furniture, power points and light switches etc. Elegant cornicing graces formal areas, with coving elsewhere throughout the property. Another well thought feature is a dual zone facility to the central heating. This means that the first floor can be cooler than the ground floor if desired. A detached double width garage with electronically operated remote up and over door is adjacent to the property. There is parking for two cars to the front. Both the front and the rear gardens of the property are landscaped. The rear garden being completely fenced providing security and privacy. The communal landscaping within Woodham Gate is exemplary. In 2008, when these fine properties were built, Millgate Homes won three Evening Standard New Home in the south east Awards, for this development. These were, The New Home of the Year 2008, Best New Small Development 2008 and Best New Family Home with five or more bedrooms 2008. The location is highly convenient and exclusive. It is almost equidistant from West Byfleet and Woking shopping centres and railway stations (Waterloo from 26 mins). It should be noted that there is the balance of a two year home emergency cover insurance on the property, the balance of a three year snagging guarantee and the balance of a ten year NHBC guarantee.
