    About this property

    • Guide price range £1,250,000 - £1,350,000

      Understood to have been built in the early 1980s, Copperfield is a large and spacious modern family home situated in the heart of the sought-after village of Newick. Situated in an elevated plot, the house has some lovely views over its landscaped gardens to Fletching Common in the north.

      The house extends to an impressive 3,043 square feet, with the ground floor accommodation arranged around a large entrance hall, with a turned staircase rising to the first floor. There are three reception rooms: a dual aspect sitting room featuring an inglenook-style brick fireplace with iron fire hood, a formal dining room, and a versatile playroom or study. The kitchen, breakfast and family room is fitted with an extensive range of beech-effect units with various high-end integrated appliances and ample space for a table and/or sofa; it is served by the adjoining utility room. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.

      There are five well-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor, lying off an elegant galleried landing. Bedroom one has a walk-in dressing area and an en suite bathroom, bedroom two also benefits from an adjoining dressing room or study, and an en suite bathroom. The other three bedrooms are served by a family shower room.

      The house is approached via a gated driveway, which opens to a parking area ahead of the house and the integral double garage. To the front of the house is an area of lawn, well screened from the road by laurel hedging and trees.

      The rear garden has been cleverly landscaped to enhance Copperfield's elevated position: a large paved terrace extends across the rear of the house, from which the views to the north can be enjoyed. From the terrace a sloping path winds down through well-stocked shrub borders and over a pretty ornamental waterfall to an expanse of level lawn, where there is a brick-built summerhouse and adjoining store. To the far end of the garden are a number of fruit trees and a screened area suitable as a vegetable garden.
