Situated in a delightful semi-rural location on the coveted Ferry Lane in Medmenham is this superb masterpiece of design.
A set of private gates off Ferry Lane open up to the landscaped gardens, with the drive running to the boundary leading to the rear of the plot where the house is situated.
In its original form Abbotsfield was an award-winning masterpiece of 1950s design by renowned architect John Fryman, who at the time was challenged to create a vision for future living'. Keeping true to this brief, this latest incarnation of Abbotsfield has been created out of the original steel frame and provides modern 21st Century living testament as much to the success of the original building's design as it is the current owner's meticulous attention to detail. The accommodation is laid out in a manner that takes best advantage of the position, in particular is an impressive sitting room to the first floor with dual aspect windows overlooking the gardens and surrounding countryside.
The ground floor provides a large glazed entrance hall with storage, leading through to a stunning kitchen and dining room. This space is bright and airy with full width bi-fold doors to the landscaped garden at the front and an outdoor dining terrace to the rear. Fitted with attractive units and fitted appliances, with a central island and large space for a dining table. Off the kitchen (and also the hallway) is a family/television room that also has doors out to the outdoor dining terrace. In addition the ground floor provides an office, guest cloakroom and utility room.
To the first floor is a principle reception room with front and rear windows, a lovely large room that has views over the gardens and countryside. The bedroom accommodation is by way of four double rooms with fitted wardrobes, two bathrooms of which one is en suite to the main bedroom.
Throughout, the house is beautifully fitted with new windows, flooring, bathrooms, kitchen and all the services (electrics and heating) have been replaced.
To the outside the property has a double car port under the main structure, with a large driveway providing further parking. The gardens are currently undergoing full detailed landscaping (due for completion October 2020) and offer good privacy to all sides. Landscaping plans are available, briefly they include; new lawns, terracing, sheds, planting, borders, driveway, fencing and new automated gates.
