This family home is a classic example of 1960s modernism, designed by award winning architects Fry, Drew and Partners. Characterized by large windows, an open plan layout and Scandinavian inspired pine clad vaulted ceilings, this innovative development featured in House and Garden magazine in 1964.
The current owners have improved the property internally in recent years, and it offers a practical layout for family living with a reception space that extends to over 32 and overlooks the delightful garden.
The front door opens into a porch which in turn leads into a generous entrance hall, with stairs leading to the first floor and a useful understairs cupboard. Straight ahead is a large triple aspect living room with attractive wood flooring. The central area is set up as dining space, with a cozy seating area to the side with striking mellow exposed brick chimney housing a multi-fuel burner within the fireplace and exposed pine ceiling beams and pine cladding. Across the back of the house is a family room with sliding doors opening onto the patio. This room is open to the kitchen and has a vaulted ceiling with velux windows flooding the space with sunlight. The kitchen has been recently refitted with a modern range of white gloss units with a worktop over incorporating a one and a half bowl sink and drainer. There is a smart tiled floor and tiled splash backs, an integrated double oven with microwave, five ring gas hob and extractor fan over, and space for further appliances. A door leads to a utility room where there are further fitted units with space for appliances. A study and a shower room complete the ground floor accommodation.
Upstairs, the first floor landing has a large airing cupboard housing the boiler. There are four double bedrooms, one has a built-in shower cubicle and wash hand basin, and access to a roof terrace with a tiled floor and wooden guard rail. The family bathroom is fitted with a contemporary white suite comprising a bath with shower over, a wash hand basin and low level WC. This room is fully tiled and has a heated towel rail.
Outside the house is approached via a driveway providing off-road parking for two cars. There is a well maintained front garden and to the side of the house is a second longer driveway which leads to a tandem length garage. This has double doors to the front and a full inspection pit with light and power. The rear garden is a good size and well maintained, mainly laid to lawn with a generous patio providing plenty of outside dining space with a pretty pergola. There is a useful storage shed which we understand will remain.
