This charming family home is entered through an exterior oak covered porch with stone slab paving leading to the front door. A wooden door leads into an internal hallway which is a delightful open space with stairs to the first floor and various doors leading off.
The first door takes you into a reception room which is used by the current owners as a cinema room, with the projector mounted on the ceiling projecting onto one entire wall. However, the room could also be utilised as a lounge area if desired. It has a dual aspect by way of a large sash window overlooking the front of the property and one to the side. An inglenook fireplace with a wood burner and a pretty stone surround along with elegant coving and spotlights around the outside of the room add character to the room. Additional features, which are found throughout this wonderful home, are the beautiful heavy wood doors complete with china crackle effect door knobs complemented by oak flooring.
The second room on the ground floor is another lounge/reception room which is very similar to the first, again boasting a dual aspect by way of large windows to the side and front of the property. There is also attractive coving along with a further inglenook fireplace with wood burner and stone surround, and this is another beautifully presented room.
To the other end of the hallway, set under the stairs, is a useful ground floor WC with oak flooring and period style brick tiling to the bottom half of the walls. There is a concealed cistern push button WC with a handy small wooden shelf behind, a wall hung wash hand basin complete with monobloc tap, and the piece de la resistance is a striking wooden wall enhanced by ceiling spotlights.
Moving into the kitchen/dining/living space, which could be described as the heart of the home and exudes a feeling of contemporary opulence. It boasts a fully tiled floor and an elegant full wall of bi-fold doors that open out onto an alfresco dining area to the side of the property, an absolutely perfect place for entertaining. The interior dining area has a huge raised skylight along the top of the space enhanced by spotlights underneath and a sash window looking out to the rear of the property providing additional light. The contemporary styling continues into the kitchen section of the room where large coving features around the outside along with ceiling spotlights, and a bespoke fitted kitchen complete with an upstand. There is an amazing centre island which houses a fully integrated dishwasher complemented by granite work surfaces and a breakfast bar area to the other side makes this another fabulous entertaining space. There are ample wall and base units around the outside of the room, space for a large range cooker which is set within an inglenook with a built-in extractor fan above, plenty of bench space, twin sinks set into the granite work surface and a further unit to the other side of the kitchen space which could house a free-standing American style fridge freezer. Three windows around the outside of this room allow for lots of natural light to flood the space. A further large wooden door leads into a utility space which has a tiled floor seamlessly blending in from the kitchen area as well as matching units, work surfaces and upstand. There is plumbing and space for a washing machine, space for a tumble dryer, additional wall and base units, a further sink set into the granite work surface and a sash window overlooking the rear allows for natural light. There is also a door leading out to the rear garden. This space really must be seen to be believed and is certainly the sort of room you would see in the pages of national style and housebuilding magazines.
Moving up to the first floor, there is a beautiful open landing with large coving and various doors leading off.
The master bedroom is a substantially sized double and boasts large coving and a high ceiling giving character to the room. Two huge sash windows give inviting views of the open countryside which can also be enjoyed from a window seat below, and there are several handmade built-in wardrobes, perfect for storage. The ensuite, which drops down two steps, boasts attractive quartz tiling behind a free-standing designer style double ended bath which has raised sections either side with taps coming out of the wall and a separate lift-off shower unit. There is a separate wet room section with shower and glass mosaic tiling to the floor along with a waterfall shower head and separate shower head, a chrome heated towel rail, close coupled push button WC, a fabulous built-in vanity storage area which has a sink dropped into the granite surface above and more of the quartz tiling behind where a tap comes out of the wall. A shaped ceiling with spotlights adds character to the room and light comes from a sash window overlooking the side garden.
Bedroom two is another very large double with a high ceiling and coving as well as a sash window overlooking the other side of the property. It also boasts an en suite, fully tiled to the floor and around the shower cubicle with a large vanity unit with a winged sink above, a concealed cistern push button WC, a double size shower cubicle and a lovely block wood effect to one of the walls which gives warmth to the space. Ceiling spotlights ensure the room is light and bright. Finally the room also provides access to a walk-in wardrobe. These rooms could make a very plush guest suite or a self-contained area for an elderly relative or older child
Bedroom three is to the front of the property and is another good size double with loft access above. There is a sash window overlooking the front of the property.
Bedroom four, a further double, has a French designer feel to it along with a window to the side of the property.
Bedroom five, another double, is being used by the current owners as an office, has a window to the side keeping it light and bright.
The family bathroom boasts tiling to the floor and walls giving the space a stylish designer type feel. There is a quality double-ended bath with a tap coming from the wall, a close-coupled push button WC, a vanity unit with a sink on top and a wet room style shower space with glass shower screen and a large waterfall shower head with separate head. The room also has lovely deep coving and a large sash window overlooking the front of the property where views of the beautiful countryside can be enjoyed.
The stunning wraparound gardens boast a number of different areas from which to enjoy the views and also relax, namely gravelled, paved and sitting areas making it a perfect space to enjoy the outdoor life.
Finally, there is a detached stone-built double garage with double wooden doors. Stairs to the right of the garage lead upstairs to a boarded space above the garage which is currently used for storage but which could easily be converted into a separate living space. Light floods the space through three Velux windows. The garage could be converted into a separate living annexe to the main house if desired, subject to the relevant permissions being obtained.
