Fabulous contemporary family house in about one acre.
Grasmere is a fabulous contemporary designed detached house situated on the edge of the popular Bedfordshire village in a tucked away position and within gardens approaching one acre.
Constructed approximately seven years ago with an exacting eye for detail, the property offers great flexibility for those who may be looking for a house with bedroom accommodation on the ground floor.
Using the combination of plain walls with vaulted ceilings with a generous number of windows and skylights, the house really does boast bright and airy rooms whilst bringing in the surrounding gardens into the living experience.
With underfloor heating, double glazed windows and significant insulation, this is a home which capitalises on keeping day to day running costs to a minimum. Modern technology has been installed including Cat 6 wiring, a centralized home automation system giving control of the Sonos sound system, lighting and extensive security features. Perfect for those who wish to lock up and leave the house for periods of time, safe in the knowledge that the house is fully monitored.
The entrance lobby sits behind a pair of contemporary glazed doors which open into the vast sitting room which overlooks the gardens on three sides making this space very bright even on the dullest of days. Bi-fold doors slide back providing direct access onto the large garden terrace which wraps around the house to the family room making this a perfect space for enjoying outdoor entertaining.
The kitchen/breakfast/family room has been designed very much to please the most culinary minded. An extensive range of white high gloss units are fitted with integrated larder fridge and separate family sized freezer. There are a pair of eye level electric ovens with companion ceramic hob which is set into the large island unit with breakfast bar, vented by a stunning focal extractor hood. Clever mood lighting can be programmed to suit both day and night time dining.
The family room area leads off the kitchen and has bi-fold doors opening onto the terrace.
There is a utility room adjacent with cabinets complementary to those in the kitchen. A door leads out to the garden making this a practical route when coming in with muddy feet! There are 2 bedrooms on the ground floor, one of which is currently used as a home office/study.
On the first floor there is the main suite and 3 further bedrooms sharing a stunning family bathroom. One of the bedrooms has a large loft hatch where there was once a spiral staircase, which gives access to an extensive attic space.
Accessed from a small country lane, the property sits behind tall imposing gates providing a good level of privacy and security. The gardens, which have been designed with practicality in mind, wrap around the house and feel very private.
There are two pretty summer houses within the gardens and a purpose built timber barn measuring 26' x 19' which offers a multitude of uses, such as a Yoga/Pilates studio, further home office space, cars for the classic car enthusiast or a modern Gymnasium. In addition, there is a detached double garage.
