    About this property

    • Allt Druidh, meaning ‘house in the trees' is believed to have been constructed in 1948, the year of the British Olympics, with carvings of the Olympic flame to commemorate the event evident externally. The property sits within a pleasant 0.8 acre plot, backing onto Willesley Park Golf Club and offers extensive accommodation approaching 6,000 sq ft with five reception rooms and five bedrooms at first floor level, three of which benefit from en suite bathrooms.

      Entry via the main entrance to the east aspect leads through to a generous entrance hall with tiled floor and open cantilever staircase. Off the entrance hall to the left hand side sits the open dining area to the front aspect and a spacious sitting room overlooking the rear with a bay window, engineered
      oak flooring and an electric fire with stone effect surround and mantel. An oak door off the dining area leads through to the stunning dual aspect drawing room which spreads the depth of the property and holds two sets of French doors to the rear. The attractive dual aspect atrium room with vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and French doors to the front and rear
      provides a delightful seating area which is accessed via the drawing room and also benefits from integral access to the triple garage.

      Positioned to the right hand side of the entrance hall there is a ground floor WC and hallway which leads onto the study with alcove shelving and storage and a brick built fireplace with stone effect surround. The hallway also leads onto the utility room which provides base and wall storage, space and plumbing for appliances, a stainless steel sink and drainer and a Zanussi oven and grill.

      The fantastic open plan kitchen breakfast room spans the depth of the house to the north aspect and incorporates a range of solid wood base and wall units and a central chef's island both of which benefit from solid stone worktops. There are a range of high quality integrated appliances within the kitchen to including a Smeg oven and microwave and a Smeg
      five burner gas hob with space and plumbing provided for a freestanding dishwasher and fridge freezer. Double doors lead from the kitchen into the large, useful pantry area in addition to two sets of French doors leading out to both the north aspect and the rear.

      Stairs ascend from the entrance hall to the large, open landing area and onto the bedroom accommodation. Similar to the drawing room, the master bedroom spans the depth of the house and occupies a large dressing area, a walk-in wardrobe and a four piece en suite bathroom with a separate shower cubicle, a low level WC, fitted bath with mixer tap, a
      sink, vanity and storage unit and a chrome towel rail. The second and third bedrooms are positioned to the rear of the property, overlooking the gardens and golf course, both featuring three piece en suite shower rooms whilst the fourth and fifth bedrooms share a three piece shower room positioned between the two rooms.

      There is a charming, well fitted family bathroom suite entered off the landing which holds a roll-top freestanding bath with mixer, an ornate pedestal hand wash basin and a low level WC.
