About this property

  • 1 Rhee Meadows is a detached family property constructed in 1998 of buff brick elevations which has been extended and refurbished throughout by the current owners including new windows, doors, bathrooms and flooring. Of particular note is the extended kitchen/breakfast room which benefits from three floor-to-ceiling easy slide Schuco doors running the width of the room and opening onto the terrace. This well-proportioned room has been laid with Italian porcelain wood effect tiles and fitted with a handmade Krantz kitchen with a large cooking island, a wide range floor and wall mounted units including drinks cabinet for entertaining, Miele fitted appliances and a mix of oak and Silestone work surfaces.

    There is a the added advantage of a bespoke oak seating area, ample space for a large breakfast table and a Charnwood woodburner. To the left there is a utility room with more storage, plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier, and access to both the garage and rear garden

    The property which sits in a plot area of about 0.36 acres and can be seen in greater detail on the attached floorplan measures approximately 3,367 sq ft of well laid out accommodation over two floors plus a double garage with electric up and over doors.

    The property opens into a large hallway with American walnut flooring. The aforementioned kitchen opens up at the rear and, to the front, there is a study with fitted cherry wood shelving. On the right double glazed doors leads to the drawing room with views over the front garden and multi-fuel wood burning stove with a limestone mantel. A further reception room with access to the garden could be used as a dining room or children's playroom.

    At first floor are five bedrooms including a large master bedrooms with two dressing areas, and an en suite bathroom with shower and bath, Villeroy and Boch sanitaryware and Hansgrohe fittings. There is a further guest suite with the same quality fittings and a similar family bathroom.

    Outside the house is approached via a private roadway solely serving the five properties built at the same time as 1 Rhee Meadows.

    At the rear a wide and deep terrace constructed with similar Italian tiles to the kitchen runs across the width of the house with a sunken and raised seating area – the latter with a self-cleaning glass surround – lead to a mainly lawned garden. There is a shed and summer house at the rear and planning to remove and replace with two “non-occupancy” outbuildings.

The kitchen is just stunning, wants for nothing – even down to the handmade drinks cabinet with space for all your glassware – and wonderful views over the rear garden. This is a space for the family and for entertaining.
