Beautifully presented modern house with annexe potential and a lovely rural outlook, situated in a small private close on the northern edge of Newick.
Built in 2018, 28 Mantell Close is a beautifully presented detached home, situated in a small private close on the northern edge of Newick - ideally placed for the many amenities that the village has to offer, whilst benefitting from a delightful rural outlook. Our clients have owned the house since new and have much improved it, upgrading the kitchen, creating a dining room/study, reconfiguring the internal layout to take advantage of the wonderful views to the north and the west, and converting part of the ground floor into a versatile suite of rooms which could be used as a self-contained annexe.
There are four reception rooms in all, including a dual-aspect sitting room featuring a limestone fireplace with inset woodburner, and a dining room (or spacious study) with range of shelved storage bookshelves.
The kitchen overlooks the garden and is fitted with a range of stylish, high gloss units with granite worktops, various integrated appliances including a new Kaiser induction hob, two electric ovens and a combi/microwave, a deep ceramic sink, and a deep, shelved pantry cupboard; there is ample space for a large breakfast table.
Beyond the kitchen are a number of rooms which could be used as an annexe, including the third and fourth reception rooms. The garden room has a large picture window framing the outlook over the garden; beyond here is a large laundry room (which could form the annexe kitchen), and a versatile bedroom/office with en suite shower room.
There are four good-sized bedrooms on the first floor lying off a galleried landing, three with lovely far-reaching views to the north and the west. They include two bedroom suites, both with walk in wardrobes fitted with hanging and shelving, and stylish en suite shower rooms with large shower cubicles. Bedrooms three and four are served by a family bathroom.
To the front of the house is a block paved driveway with space for three cars, there is additional shared visitor parking in the car park opposite the house.
The house's rear garden is of particular note: enclosed by post and rail fencing and hedging, and having been attractively landscaped to offer the option to use the garden throughout the year. There are a number of charming seating areas, two elegant metal gazebos and three useful storage sheds, including a large workshop with power connected. A large raised terrace with full width glass balustrade and steps leading to the garden extends across the rear of the house, taking advantage of the house's elevated position and from which the views to Fletching Common can be fully appreciated.

This house has so much character for a modern property, and its location offers the best of both worlds - easy access to the vibrant village centre, and with lovely rural views beyond the garden.Oliver MackminProperty agent
