Hyde Meadows occupies a fantastic location nestled on the edge of Minchinhampton Common. The house is set back from the road and is screened by a row of mature trees. Hyde Meadows has been lovingly renovated and extended by the current owners with exceptional attention being paid to every detail.
The house is entered through a covered porch into the elegant, galleried entrance hall which gives the first glimpse of what this opulent house has to offer; with a limestone tiled floor and balustraded oak staircase leading to the first floor.
The substantial kitchen/breakfast dining room is the main hub of the house and ideal for entertaining. There is an extensive range of solid wood wall and floor cabinets with granite worktops and upstands. A central island unit also finished with a granite work top with inset sink and ceramic electric hob with extractor above and breakfast bar to one side makes a natural divide between the kitchen and breakfast room areas. There is a four oven oil fired Aga finished in black and integrated appliances comprise a double electric oven, wine fridge and coffee machine all by Siemens. The kitchen has a well equipped utility room with wall and floor cabinets continuing in the same style as the kitchen with granite worktops. The workings of the central vacuum system are housed here and there is space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. A downstairs cloakroom is located just off the utility room and a door also leads out to rear of the property.
From the kitchen/breakfast room there are a set of bi-folding doors making the room bright and welcoming and on a sunny day can be opened to let the outside in. Al fresco dining can be enjoyed on the patio area whilst looking out across the landscaped gardens.
The sitting room is most inviting with its triple aspect and a set of bi-fold doors leading out onto the rear patio. The contemporary wood burning stove by 'Barpas' makes a real focal point to one side of the room whilst on the other side there is a feature aquariam wall which can be admired from either the sitting room or dining room.
Stairs lead down to the cinema and games room which has real 'wow' factor. It makes the perfect place to throw a party as it is fitted with the very latest in home entertainment. Bespoke walnut cabinetry houses the integrated surround sound system as well as the electrics for the Sonos and DVD player. Just sit back and grab the popcorn as the large drop down screen prepares to entertain you with your favourite film through a D-ILA projector. To one side of the room is a fully fitted bar with a marble work top, fridge and optics. If you don't want to watch a film then you can play a game of pool on the American pool table.
The study has a range of bespoke American black walnut cabinets and purpose built double desk with views from the window across to the front of the property.
The first floor has a beautiful galleried landing with solid oak flooring.
The master bedroom is a luxurious sanctuary with its porcelain tiled floor, separate dressing room flanked either side by floor to ceiling wardrobes, en suite bathroom with freestanding bath, walk in shower, 'his and hers' Villeroy and Boch sinks with vanity units, WC and bidet. The room is finished with beautiful mosaic wall tiles and a porcelain tiled floor. From the bedroom doors lead out onto a decked balcony which is the perfect spot to enjoy the sun in complete privacy.
The guest suite is a spacious double aspect room with a luxury en suite bathroom with limestone flooring and a white suite comprising stand alone bath, corner shower, 'his and hers' sinks, WC and heated towel rail.
There are three further double bedrooms all with solid oak floors and one has a built in wardrobe.
There is a separate shower room with a limestone floor and a white suite comprising a shower, wash hand basin and WC. There is an additional room which has all the plumbing in place to be turned into a spacious family bathroom.
From the landing there is a double opening storage cupboard and a separate airing cupboard. Access to the loft with folding loft ladders can be reached from the first floor landing.
The leisure complex links to the main house via the home gym. The structure of the vast leisure complex is complete with bi-folding doors to two sides of the complex opening out onto the patio and rear garden. The swimming pool itself has still to be fully finished allowing the new owners to put their stamp on things. The pool is 12m x 6m with the electrics in place for integrated pool lighting. Rooms have been built to be used as changing rooms and a steam room plus there is space for a hot tub to be installed adjacent to the pool.
The property is approached via a set of wrought iron electric gates flanked either side by stone pillars. The tree lined gravel drive leads to the front of the property with a generous parking area and triple detached garage with games room above. The garage has three electrically operated up and over doors and space for three cars with still plenty of room left to store garden equipment. The boiler for the games room is also located in the garage. The games room is reached by an exterior staircase and leads into an open plan sitting room/kitchenette. The kitchenette has a good range of wall and floor cabinets, stainless steel sink, a built in oven and hob with overhead extractor unit and plumbing for a washing machine. There is an additional room and a separate shower room with WC and wash hand basin.
Hyde Meadows sits perfectly within its plot of around 3.5 acres in total. The front garden is externally lit to make a real feature of the trees as day turns to dusk. There is a fully fenced paddock, ideal for grazing a pony or alternatively it would make a fantastic play area.
The gardens continue on through a five bar gate leading to the adjacent paddock and the rear gardens. The rear of the property has a spacious patio area which links the house to the leisure complex. The landscaped gardens enjoy a selection of mature trees including a magnificent beech tree and established borders. The detached stable block sits on a concrete base and has four loose boxes with independent lighting and water. The neighbouring two acre (approx.) paddock with a shelter is completely fenced and has excellent access through two five bar gates.
