This wonderful detached family home was originally built in 1973 and is positioned on a much sought after and desirable cul-de-sac with pleasant woodland views to the rear. It has been extended and renovated throughout by the current owners to an extremely high standard and offers spacious accommodation with a contemporary finish. The exterior features brick construction with new low maintenance composite cladding, soffits and facias under a pitched tile roof.
Internally the accommodation is immaculately presented throughout, with tastefully chosen fixtures and a real eye for detail. It is a particularly bright and airy house with natural light flooding in throughout the day thanks to its extensive array of large windows.
The front door opens into a generous entrance hall with wooden flooring that flows throughout most of the downstairs space. To the left-hand side is the impressive cinema room that features integrated wiring for surround sound speakers and LED accent lighting. It is a cosy and flexible room with carpeted floors that could easily be used as a playroom depending on your requirements.
Across the hall is a stylish downstairs WC and handy utility room which has its own external side door. A purpose-built study with high speed internet connection can also be found on the ground floor offering the ideal space for those who work from home.
At the rear of the house overlooking the garden is a fantastic open-plan kitchen / dining / living space which has been designed for modern family living. Two large sets of bi-folding doors can be opened up to incorporate outdoor living into everyday life. The flooring is even fitted flush to the decked patio providing a seamless link between the inside of the house and the garden. The kitchen itself has a range of bespoke hardwood in-frame wall and base units with Corian worktops and trendy chamfered tile splashback. A large kitchen island provides an informal place to sit and eat with plenty of space for a separate dining table. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher and extractor hood and also included in the sale is a large range oven with 6 burner gas hob, ideal for those with a flair for cooking. The living space on its own is 20 ft long and like the cinema room has LED accent lighting to the edges of the ceiling. It is a great space for relaxing and watching the many birds that flourish here on the edge of the woodland.
Upstairs the first floor landing leads to the luxurious master bedroom suite, three further double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom is dual aspect with large floor to ceiling windows looking out to the woodland. There is a generous walk-in wardrobe area with built-in his and hers cupboards and a spacious ensuite reminiscent of a boutique hotel featuring walk in shower with glass screen, ceiling mounted rainfall shower head and separate handheld fitting, wall mounted WC and floating sink with integrated vanity storage.
The family bathroom is finished to the same high standard with contrasting floor and ceiling tiling and a white suite comprising bath, walk in shower glass corner cubicle, wall mounted WC and floating sink with integrated vanity storage.
The remaining bedrooms can all comfortably accommodate a double bed. Bedroom 2 overlooks the front of the property with dual aspect windows and bedrooms 3 and 4 share the same amazing woodland views at the rear.
The house has been completely rewired and replumbed and features water based underfloor heating downstairs with electric underfloor heating in the upstairs bathrooms and radiator heating in the bedrooms. There are recessed ceiling lights throughout with programmable lighting switches that can be controlled wirelessly from mobile devices. For security there is CCTV and a security alarm across both the house and garage, as well as motion sensitive external security lighting and automated low level internal lighting that comes on at night time. The loft space has also been fully boarded providing plentiful storage space.
The house is approached across a large permeable resin driveway, which provides off-road parking for multiple vehicles. There is a detached garage which has been rebuilt with an electric up and over door and pitched roof, offering additional storage space and large enough to house 2 further vehicles. A set of stone steps leads down to the entrance door where a gravelled front garden offers a private space to sit and enjoy the morning sun. Pathways running down both sides of the house provide access to the rear of the property with a shed on the left hand side providing further garden storage.
The fantastic back garden is west facing and has been expertly landscaped on split levels with mature planted beds designed to provide colour and variety throughout the seasons. A large patio area finished with low maintenance composite decking flows directly from the open-plan living space providing a great spot for alfresco entertaining. There is a small sandpit for the children and a firepit area with built in seating for those long summer evenings. A stylish mixture of stone and gravel paths surround the entertaining space interspersed with lavender, yew and box planting.
The garden slopes downwards to the lower tier with a set of contemporary steps down the centre. The lower garden level is mainly laid to lawn offering plenty of space for children to play with a gate providing access into the woodland behind.
