About this property

  • Description

    Juniper House is a stunning architect designed family home built to an exacting standard and affording stylish, high-quality fixtures and fittings throughout. The house is light and flexible comprising 5 bedrooms (3 en suite) 4 of which have built in wardrobes. There are 3 reception rooms and a spacious kitchen/dining/family room is a beautiful family space with vaulted ceiling and bi-fold doors to an ‘Al Fresco' dining terrace.

    To the first floor there is a galleried landing and master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and en suite bathroom, two bedrooms with en suite facilities and 2 further bedrooms plus a family bathroom. A professionally constructed loft storage area is accessed via a drop-down ladder.

    Privately approached off Uxmore Road, access is initially provided via electrically operated gates on to a shared gravelled driveway, with a wooded copse running along one side, which serves the three properties, Juniper House is the most set back and therefore extremely private. The driveway leads to a private brick paviour forecourt to the front of the house and detached triple garage with wide lawned gardens either side. There is parking for several cars and the garage has a storage area above. There is a garden shed, several external power-points and two outside taps.

    The mainly lawned gardens and grounds are beautifully kept, with the rear gardens having views into the woodland bordering the garden. Running along the back of the house, the wide and deep stone laid terrace enjoys a pleasant sunny south-westerly aspect and benefits from having bi-fold doors from the vaulted kitchen /dining / family room, simply perfect for ‘Al-Fresco' dining. There is also a terraced seating area to the side of the house. The garden has decorative lighting and a water feature.

    Delightfully attractive, the gardens and setting must be viewed to be fully appreciated and in total extend into approximately 0.75 of an acre.
