    About this property

    • 2 Aldous Court is an attractive detached property on a private road, being part of a small development of 5 individual properties built at the turn of the 21st century by a well-renowned local builder.

      The property, which is built of buff brick elevations beneath a clay tiled roof, has been skilfully extended during the time of the current owners and can be seen in greater detail on the attached floor plan.

      The house is approached from a quiet no through road which leads to a wide gravelled driveway and an over-sized double garage with electric up and over doors. A stone pathway divides the lawned front garden from a wide veranda fronted by deep lavender beds and leads up to the front door (an aluminium door system by Internorm).

      Inside, all rooms span from the central hallway with quality wooden floors and high ceilings. To the rear, the large triple aspect kitchen breakfast room has been extended by the current owners and gives views and access to the terrace and garden beyond through a number of windows and bi-folding doors. There is a wide array of modern kitchen units with a mix of a white gloss and wood effect drawer fronts, Corian work surfaces, space for an American style fridge freezer and integrated Neff appliances including a large hob and extractor which retracts into the island. Large porcelain tiles further enhance this wonderful space. Off the kitchen is a well-appointed pantry with matching units and work surfaces as the kitchen, space and plumbing for a washing machine, tumble dryer and further dishwasher.

      To the right of the hall is an impressive drawing room with bi-folding doors leading to the garden and a large inglenook fireplace with a working fire. There are interconnecting double doors which lead into a large study or further reception room with views over the front garden. To the left of the hall is a small study or games room. A large modern WC with feature freestanding stone sink and large closet complete the ground floor.

      Moving upstairs via the staircase with oak balustrades leads you into the wide landing which is large enough to incorporate further work space if required and communicates with all of the bedrooms. There are four double bedrooms and a “family” bathroom. Of particular note is the main bedroom with en suite shower room with attractive twin composite dark stone sink and oversized power shower. There is a further en suite room with a walk in power shower. All the sanitary ware is high quality with Aqualisa showers and Merlin tempered glass screens.

      Outside, the garden is mainly laid to lawn with a large patio area for outside dining. High hedges at the rear provide plenty of privacy.

      The current owners have installed an advanced NSI compliant alarm system and the entire house benefits from the latest generation Nest smart thermostat controlled central heating and hot water system.
