About this property

  • Virtual viewing tour available on request. Set in its own private grounds, the impressive residence of Ithilien can be found behind electric gates opening up to a sweeping driveway. This wonderful family home is arranged over three floors and has been recently updated by the current owners to an impeccably high standard.

    Through the large entrance hall, you are greeted by a double-width staircase rising to a second entrance hall. Situated here there is a large reception room with triple aspect, currently being used as a home office.

    Back from the second hall, a further staircase takes you into the impressive double-height sitting/dining/music room. This room has stunning parquet flooring, with a window overlooking the front gardens and double doors out to the rear sun terrace with views over to the garden, making this the perfect room for entertaining.

    The living room (currently used as the TV room) has a built-in media centre, velux windows, and a large window overlooking the mature gardens. This room leads directly into the sun room and sun terrace, perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining.
    On the same floor, the double doors lead you into the superbly appointed modern kitchen. The abundant cupboard space and solid oak worktop space are all centred around a large kitchen island. This includes built-in oven, dishwasher, microwave, induction hob, extractor fan, full height fridge and full height freezer.

    Adjacent to the kitchen is a useful utility room and boot room, from here you have direct access through the side door to the gardens and the private footbridge to the lane, making it easy for grocery deliveries and unloading. There is also direct access to the gardens from here too. Also, on this floor, there is a very useful playroom and modernised cloakroom.

    The Principal bedroom suite is located off the first-floor hallway. With stunning wood flooring, and a large fully fitted walk-in wardrobe this room provides grandeur yet peaceful environment. Just off from this suite is the impressive en-suite. It boasts twin basins with storage, free-standing bath, wall hung WC and bidet, plus a large walk-in rainfall shower. The en-suite has underfloor heating and heated towel rails. Located opposite is the guest bedroom, with double doors out on to the rear garden. Again, this room also has impressive wooden floors and a very recently modernised en-suite with built-in music speakers, underfloor heating and towel rail

    From the first-floor hallway there is access through to three further double bedrooms; two of which have modern en-suites, again recently modernised to a very high standard. Also, the main family bathroom is located here, incorporating a large shower, freestanding bath, underfloor heating and built-in music speakers.

    Outside the property, to the front, is a purpose-built triple garage with electric up and over doors and an attached ‘tractor shed' all with power and lighting. There is also parking for several vehicles and even a boat. To the rear of the property is the beautiful private garden predominately laid to lawn with flowering shrubs and mature trees and a further two terraced areas, one of which is covered. In all, the grounds cover over three-quarters of an acre of privacy and tranquility, making it the perfect family home.
