About this property

  • Winterdown is a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a truly special home. Enjoying a c. 7.78 acre plot completely surrounded by woodland this home offers the utmost privacy in the most natural of settings.

    Accessed by an impressive, winding driveway this modernist, architect-designed home, believed to have been built around 1985, is set behind secure electric gates. Steps lead up to the covered porch and upon entering the property one is immediately struck by the most impressive view, through floor to ceiling windows and a large glazed door, to the rear garden beyond. Off the entrance hall is the kitchen/breakfast room with a range of units and integrated appliances and the dining area also enjoying the same wonderful view of the garden.

    The utility room off the kitchen benefits from direct external access to the front of the property. Adjacent to the kitchen is the sitting room which boasts a wonderful feature fireplace and sliding doors which provide direct access to the terrace and garden beyond. To the other side of the entrance hall is a further reception room, again with sliding doors offering terrace access.

    There is a well-proportioned bedroom suite ideal for guests, which enjoys an en suite shower room and built-in wardrobes, and a games/TV room with a secondary utility room adjacent. Completing the accommodation on this floor is a workshop, plant room and guest cloakroom.

    On the first floor the principal bedroom suite benefits from the most magnificent view of the gardens, with a balcony providing the perfect space to take it all in. This bedroom features a number of built-in wardrobes and an en suite with separate shower and bath. There are two further double bedrooms on this floor, both of which also have balconies and built in storage, which share the use of the family bathroom also on this floor.

    An expansive terrace runs the full width of the property providing the ideal space for outdoor entertaining and dining. Beyond this the simply beautiful south west facing garden leads to a charming pond, swimming pool and tennis court, perfect for family fun. There are a number of outbuildings and sheds as well as a double garage, set behind gates, offering additional secure parking. To the front of the property and running along the eastern boundary is a stunning woodland area, an incredible setting for little ones to explore.
