6 Bedroom Detached House Sold STC
This fantastic family home provides tasteful and extremely light living accommodation with well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings and plenty of windows including a substantial bay at the front.
Since purchasing the property in 2017, our clients have made significant improvements to the appearance of the building, the layout and the décor.
A delightful entrance hall with a grand staircase provides a hub for the ground floor and this leads immediately to a formal sitting room a wood burning stove and a large bay window.
A family room at the back of the house provides a less formal reception space which is ideal for entertaining due to its proximity to the family kitchen/dining room and the garden.
The kitchen was refitted by our clients in recent years and the addition of sympathetically designed full-height windows and French doors now allows the room to enjoy a superb outlook to the garden. It is fully fitted and features an eight-ring (gas) range, quartz surfaces and a central island. There is also a fantastic walk-in pantry.
Further ground floor accommodation includes a WC, a music room, a large utility and a two-person study. Our clients slightly shortened the garage (to create the pantry) but this is still a very useful and easy to access storage space.
FIRST FLOOR & SECOND FLOOR
The first floor is comprised of the master bedroom and en-suite, a dressing room/single bedroom with fitted wardrobes, two guest bedrooms (one with an en-suite) and a fantastic modern family bathroom.
On the second floor our clients have recently renovated the loft space to make two additional bedrooms that can be accessed via a walkway in between or via the landing. This is an ideal space for visiting families.
An easily accessible, boarded loft space is also found on the second floor which we expect could be converted into an additional shower room if required.
The rear garden is mostly private, enjoys sun into the early evening during the summer months and is edged with mature trees and shrubs. It measures around sixty foot square and it is partly laid to lawn with a patio area that leads from the kitchen/dining room to the door of the utility room; here there is a shingle seating area edge with raised wooden beds planted with flowers and shrubs.
In 2021 our clients constructed an excellent detached office at one corner of the garden. This has power and heating and is ideal as work from home space for one person. Alternatively it could be used as a consultation or treatment room.
The front garden is edged with a smart grey fence whilst the left boundary is lined with potted plants and shrubs. The L-shape driveway is large enough to park 3-4 cars comfortably.
