About this property

  • Lady Place is an individual and select development, built in 2000 by Berkeley Homes. No 18 has been owned by the present owner since then, having made considerable improvements including the kitchen and conversion of the loft. The house is light and airy with tall ceilings, solid French oak and natural stone flooring and contemporary bathrooms. The generously proportioned kitchen is of particular note with its two sets of bi-fold doors opening to the terrace, roof lantern, matt white contemporary units and large island under white Corian worktops. Integrated appliances include a pyrolytic double oven, four zone induction hob, domino gas hob, microwave, coffee machine and dishwasher. There is also a walk in larder. A good sized utility/boot room leads off with plenty of storage space. The triple aspect sitting room has French doors opening to the garden and an attractive stone fireplace and hearth. The dual aspect dining room is generously proportioned and offers flexibility of use. Also directly off the hallway are the snug/office and a cloakroom.

    Stairs wind up to the first floor with its galleried landing. The principal bedroom looks out over the garden and has two large sets of built-in wardrobes. The en suite has a freestanding bath, shower and large vanity unit. Also on the first floor are four further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and a family bathroom. Stairs lead up again to the second floor, where the present owner has converted the loft into a large, light bedroom with generous wardrobe space and en suite shower room. A large walk-in boarded and lit attic space has also been maintained.

    The house is approached by a driveway with parking for four cars. The front garden is planted with mature shrubs and steps down to the front door. The rear garden is mostly laid to lawn bordered by mature flower beds. There are apple, pear and plum trees together with a number of other mature trees. The stone terrace spans the rear of the property with doors onto it from both the kitchen and sitting rooms. There is also an evening decked terrace at the end of the garden.

    The present owner has converted one half of the double garage into a bar which is heated and insulated and could easily be a home office or gym. The other half of the garage has a workbench at the rear and part of the garage loft area is boarded out for storage.

I love the quiet, tucked away setting of this lovely family home. The current owner has done a wonderful job extending and opening up the kitchen, and the hidden bar in the converted garage is a real bonus!
