A distinctive detached family home with an appealing 'arts and crafts' design, set in stunning mature grounds of over half an acre and affording a convenient walkable distance to the City.
Built in 1998 to exacting standards, The Laurels was designed with an exemplary eye for detail, blending the key qualities of the Arts and Crafts' movement with the modern flair and cutting edge design of a new build. The current owners have owned the property from new and have enjoyed raising their family in the wonderful setting that The Laurels is fortunate to occupy.
The Laurels sits centrally in a secluded plot of around 0.6 acre, with mature trees to its boundary and swathes of lawn to the front and rear. From the gated entrance, a private driveway sweeps down to the front of the property and provides parking for several cars as well as access to the detached double garage.
From a welcoming entrance, the front door opens to a spacious reception hall, with each of the principal rooms leading off. The ground floor is configured with good sized rooms, each affording a lovely view across either garden aspect. The ground floor comprises a study, family room, drawing room with working fireplace, an open-plan dining/kitchen/living room, a utility and a cloakroom/WC, as well as ample storage.
The original kitchen has been refitted and is now reconfigured into an open plan arrangement, that also incorporates the once formal dining room. This large reception area provides a fabulous entertaining space for friends and family to enjoy.
From an attractive galleried landing, the first floor has superbly versatile accommodation of five double bedrooms, three en suites and a family bathroom. Each bedroom has a wonderful individual outlook across the gardens. The property has an expansive loft space, ideal for accessible storage, or could be converted (subject to the usual consents) to create further accommodation.
The gardens are well cared for with established and managed hedge boundaries, as well as attractive, well stocked flower beds and borders. There are some delightful seating areas adjacent to the house, so as to enjoy this lovely tranquil setting.
