The grounds have been beautifully landscaped and are incredibly private with a lawned garden along with a central courtyard garden comprising an alfresco terrace, lawn and swimming pool with hot tub. Nestled along Blind Lane, it is ideal for those seeking a high degree of privacy but easy accessibility into both larger neighbouring towns and the road and railway network. Additional features include a detached staff annexe with full amenities and six car garage.

On entering the house, a spacious entrance hall with polished tiled flooring creates a wonderful first impression. To the left, an immaculately presented dining room accommodating up to 20 guests has a bright dual aspect with bi-folding doors directly out onto the decked terrace. Steps lead on into an elegant dual aspect reception room with antique fireplace to ensure cosy evenings whatever the weather.

To the rear of the entrance hall, a defining feature is most definitely the award-winning kitchen family room as featured in 25 Beautiful Kitchens. With thorough attention to detail, the result is impressive with clearly defined zones of cooking, eating and entertaining. The kitchen area comprises bespoke designed units in American black walnut and pale sycamore, complemented by Orissa Blue granite work surfaces. Integrated Woolf and Miele appliances include a double oven and warming tray, induction hob and gas stoves, two dishwashers, coffee machine, microwave and a wall of fridge and freezer units including drawers and wine coolers. A central island provides both stool and table seating while bi-folding doors open from both the family and kitchen area to seamlessly connect outside and in.

A door leads from the kitchen via a covered entertaining area with removable roof into an impressive 20ft games and cinema room with bar. Bi-folding doors open directly onto the garden making for an impressive entertaining space. Also within this wing of the property is a state of the art temperature controlled wine cellar, practical utility room and spacious gym.

The bedroom accommodation is divided into three separate zones though these areas offer very flexible configurations for family's individual requirements. The current owners have created an oasis of calm with the master suite which has been stylishly decorated and benefits from its own very private garden area accessed via bi-folding doors. Its en-suite bathroom features a bath with inset TV, wash hand basin, walk-in shower with rain head and separate WC and bidet with inset TV. In addition is a spacious dressing area with two full walls of wardrobes along with a dressing table.
