Unexpectedly re-available due to a chain collapsing, this fantastically positioned property which has undergone a substantial refurbishment by the current owners is available to view now. A great opportunity to create a fine family home which is private, yet very conveniently located.
IN THE OWNER'S WORDS
"'Polpentre' is a house and a home that appeals to all ages.
To my mother, Polpentre is a 'Christmassy' house, at its best when bedecked with holly and red ribbons and presents under a ten foot tree, with her family all around.
To our children, it is a party house, with a south facing terrace just perfect for long summer evenings drinking Pimms and with space for all of them to come and visit at the same time.
To the grandchildren, the rooms in the attic have always been the best part of the house, to play when they were younger and now to have 'sleep-overs' with friends.
But to all of us, Polpentre is a warm welcome home."
Re-furbished and substantially improved by the current owners, this home is modern and attractive and has a flexible floor plan making the most of the views.
The entrance hall is generous and has a turning staircase with airing cupboard below, leading upstairs to a galleried landing. There is a small room with a window to the front of the property currently used as a computer area whilst a glazed door leads to a sitting room which features a fireplace with inset wood burner and french doors with full height windows on either side allowing light and offering good views. Another pair of glazed inner doors opens to the superb kitchen. Completely replaced by the current owners this is an open plan kitchen/dining room, itself with doors opening to the terrace. A range of modern high gloss white and contrasting mocha cabinets incorporate a dishwasher, large fridge, double oven and induction hob with extractor fan over. A composite one and half bowl sink sits below a window overlooking the front garden. A peninsula of cabinets project out from the wall and has a breakfast bar attached.
A very attractive conservatory to the side of the kitchen is a comfortable place to relax and enjoy a morning coffee. To the rear of this is a good sized utility room with a door leading to a rear porch and the garden.
To the opposite side of the house is a shower room and double bedroom. Accessed from an inner hall or from the side of the house, this area would be suitable for a dependent relative as it can be private to the remainder of the house. Alternately the bedroom could be used as a family room or study, with a bay window offering great views.
Upstairs there is a large landing, capable of providing space for a computer or reading area and featuring a very attractive high level arched window. There are two double bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes and en-suite bathrooms, whilst the large master bedroom has a wall of built in wardrobes, and a large en-suite wet room which has been completely modernised with attractive tiling and modern fittings.
A further flight of stairs leads up to the 2nd floor. Two rooms with a central landing with snug allow for additional bedrooms and storage or a games room.

Paths on either side of the house lead around to the enormous terrace (over 22m in length) at the rear of the house.
