Built in 2008, Applegarth is a bright, inviting contemporary property, finished by the current owners to an extremely high specification.
The property is entered through a wooden panelled door into the welcoming entrance hall with wooden floorboards and stairs leading up to the first floor. From the entrance hall a door leads into the fabulous bespoke kitchen with a slate tiled floor, recessed spot lighting, painted wooden Shaker style cabinets with granite worktops and an inset double bowl stainless steel sink. The kitchen boasts a Mercury double oven with separate grill, five ring gas burner and extractor hood above and integral appliances include a fridge, freezer and dishwasher. A large island unit graces the centre of the kitchen with a wooden work top, LED lights inset into the plinth and excellent storage. Integral to the island unit is a wine fridge and microwave and to one end is a breakfast bar.
From the kitchen French doors lead into the conservatory which is the perfect spot to entertain whilst enjoying the stunning views across the rear garden and valley beyond. A set of French doors at either end of the conservatory lead out onto the rear terrace.
Off the kitchen is a snug with wooden floor boards and French doors which also lead out on to the terrace. To the other side of the kitchen a door leads into a lobby with an external door out into the rear garden and a further door into the utility room with plumbing and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
From the entrance hall a set of double doors lead into a reception room which is currently used as a study with French doors opening out on to the rear terrace. From here part glazed double doors lead into the inviting drawing room with tongue and groove panelling to two walls. A real focal point of the room is the fireplace with granite hearth and marble surround.
A door from the drawing room leads into the double aspect media room. To one wall is a built in unit comprising plenty of useful storage and display areas. From the media room a door leads into a corridor which links back to the entrance hall and has two floor to ceiling feature windows which look out towards the front of the property allowing this area to be filled with lots of natural light. Off the corridor is a walk in cupboard ideal for storing outdoor clothing and footwear and a separate cloakroom with limestone wall and floor tiles, wash hand basin and low level WC.
From the entrance hall a staircase leads up to the first floor landing area which has a walk in airing cupboard with built in shelves. To one side of the landing is a double aspect double bedroom with a walk in wardrobe and en suite shower room with limestone floor and wall tiles, walk in shower, wash hand basin, low level WC and heated towel radiator.
The elegant master suite has an en suite bathroom and walk in wardrobe. French doors from the bedroom lead out on to a balcony which provides the ideal, private spot to sit and enjoy the views across the rear gardens and valley beyond.
Opposite the master bedroom with views out across the front of the property is a further double aspect double room with one wall dedicated to a walk in wardrobe and an en suite shower room.
Two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom complete the accommodation on the first floor.
The house is approached through a double gated entrance onto a gravelled driveway with ample parking for numerous vehicles. To one side of the driveway is a double garage with an automated door and a self contained one bedroom studio annexe above with a kitchenette and shower room which would be ideal for an elderly relative or independent teenager.
A large raised terrace at the rear of the house is the perfect spot for outdoor entertaining or simply to sit and enjoy the beautiful views. Steps from the terrace lead down to a patio area and out into the gardens which gently slope away from the house and are predominantly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and lavender beds edging the base of the raised terrace. A summerhouse is situated in one corner of the garden and there is also a tree house and useful storage shed.
