Situated in a country lane in the sought after village of Danehill, Belfield is a superbly appointed family home, originally dating from the 1970s but recently the subject of complete renovation and extension. The floor plans give an excellent overview of the full extent of the spacious and very well presented accommodation, which extends to nearly 4,000 sq ft. However, there are a number of points worthy of further note:
Solid wood double doors open to a spacious entrance hall, from where glazed double doors open to an elegant drawing room, with limestone fireplace. Across the hall a second set of doors open to the wonderful kitchen and breakfast room; a superb space, ideal for modern family living. The kitchen is fitted with a range of bespoke wooden units and display cupboards, complemented by a central island, hard wood and granite worktops and a number of integrated Neff appliances.
The kitchen and breakfast room is open to an orangery, which is a new addition to the property and is a stunning room with vaulted skylight and bi-fold doors opening to the garden.
Also on the ground floor is a separate, formal dining room, a useful study and ground floor bedroom with en suite shower room; there is good potential for this part of the house to be utilised as an annexe.
The first floor has been extended to provide four bedrooms, including a stunning master suite with luxury, contemporary en suite bathroom and French doors opening to a Juliet balcony. There are two good-sized guest rooms, both with en suite shower rooms and one with a covered, private balcony with views over the garden to the countryside beyond; a further bedroom and a family bathroom.
Electrically operated gates open to a gravelled parking area, which offers parking for a number of cars and leads to a detached, heritage style double garage, built in 2014 and comprising an open bay and an enclosed garage with storage over.
The gardens lie predominantly to the front (north) and rear (south) of the house, mainly laid to lawn and well enclosed by fencing and mature shrubs and trees. A stone terrace adjoins the rear of the house, from which there are lovely views across the lawn to the countryside beyond.
In all, about 0.55 of an acre.
