About this property

  • A contemporary house which has undergone recent renovations, 3 West Harwood Crofts is a substantial yet welcoming family home. Occupying a corner plot within a peaceful small residential development, 3 West Harwood Crofts is surrounded by a large garden with a border of mature trees with a sweeping driveway leading up to the integrated garage and parking area.

    An entrance hall provides access to accommodation on the right hand side which includes three double bedrooms with a family bathroom, while the main living area is to the left up a short flight of stairs. The feature space within the property is the double height sitting room with triple aspect windows, and open fireplace creating a light and inviting space in which to relax. A gallery from the first floor landing looks down on the sitting room and enjoys views through the floor to ceiling apex window.

    A dining room can be accessed from both the hallway as well as the sitting room, with a snug room adjacent, both with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the rear garden. A large kitchen with central breakfast island includes fitted base and wall units, a black Rangemaster cooker with double oven and large electric ceramic hob and other integrated appliances. Further storage can be found in the adjacent utility room, whilst a rear entrance hall provides access to the front parking area as well as sliding doors to the rear garden. An integrated garage with loft space above provides fantastic storage.

    Stairs from the main hall lead up to the first floor where the gallery overlooks the sitting room and two further bedrooms and Jack and Jill bathroom can be accessed. This floor is currently used as a spacious master suite with impressive bedroom featuring dual aspect dormer windows, an en suite bathroom with freestanding bath and walk in shower, and large dressing area occupying the second bedroom.

    Outside, the property is bordered by a large garden with a patio to the rear from which to enjoy the views over the garden.

    The equestrian facilities are accessed by a short walk through the development and offer nine loose boxes within the stable as well as a useful tack room with loft storage. An outdoor arena is located next to the stables. Paddocks extending to around 18.8 acres are located to the west of the property and sit between two areas of woodland.
