About this property

  • This beautifully presented modern home has been skillfully modernised and improved by the current owners over the past 20 or so years.

    By the careful addition of extra accommodation on the ground floor, this has now been opened up to provide substantial, family friendly, open plan living areas, which have mainly stone floors. These can be compartmentalised as needed utilising concealed pocket doors.

    The entrance of the house gives access to a guest cloakroom/WC and into the principal reception spaces which comprise of a sitting room with a wood burning stove, dining area, orangery, and a garden room/study. In addition is a more formal drawing room, also with its own fireplace.

    The open plan kitchen/dining room has a walk-in pantry and various integrated appliances by Gaggenau. The kitchen itself was designed by Martin Moore and has been cleverly thought out to make best use of the space providing plenty of storage. Many of these ground floor rooms have French doors opening onto the extensive patio areas which envelop the house.

    Moving upstairs there are four good sized bedrooms, all of which are fitted wardrobes and two with en suite bathrooms. The other to share a shower room/WC. The upper floors afford wonderful views of open countryside to the side and rear.

    On the outside the gardens are notable feature of this house with much interest given from specimen trees and shrubs all year round. Landscaped professionally, they have been carefully thought out to provide various seating areas depending on the time of day whilst enjoying a southerly aspect.

    Sat behind a gated entrance the driveway opens up to provide plenty of parking in front of an open bay double cart lodge and garden store. There is a professionally built Alitex greenhouse, a vegetable plot, flower garden and a Mediterranean style area to the front. The integral double garage offers further potential for conversion to additional living space, subject to planning permission. It may also be possible to create a fifth bedroom over this space.

The gardens here are a wonderful oasis with plenty of seating areas dotted around - each with their own special view. Arkesden is one of the best villages around, not too big and with a great community atmosphere.
