    About this property

    • Originally dating from the 1930s, Green Acre has been the subject of extensive internal re-modelling by our client during their 16-year ownership. The result is an excellent and well-presented home of over 2,600 square feet, with a versatile layout and every consideration for modern family living, including stylish fixtures and finishes such as oak internal doors, trims, skirting and oak flooring throughout the ground floor, en suite bath or shower rooms to all of the bedrooms, and plenty of storage throughout.

      The ground floor accommodation lies off a spacious entrance hall, which has ample space for a sofa and has a range of built in coat and shoe cupboards. There are three versatile reception rooms: the living room is of a good size and features an elegant marble feature fireplace as its focal point; the entrance hall opens to a family room overlooking the garden and leads into the conservatory dining room. A versatile ground floor fifth bedroom could also be used as a snug or play room.

      The kitchen has sliding doors opening to the covered decked terrace and is very well appointed, fitted with a range of pale grey, high gloss units with granite-effect worktops and breakfast bar, and a number of integrated appliances including three steam ovens and a microwave, a dishwasher, refrigerator and an electric hob with extractor fan and lighting. In addition are an electronically operated bin/recycling drawer, and an under cupboard heater.

      A study and a cloakroom with space for laundry appliances complete the ground floor.

      There are four bedrooms on the first floor, including a wonderful principal suite comprising a dual-aspect bedroom, walk in dressing room and a spacious bathroom with suite including a corner bath, vanity unit and separate shower cubicle. The three other bedrooms all have en suite shower rooms with vanity units, and walk-in wardrobes.

      A door from the landing opens to ladder access to the fully boarded loft space, which has power and lighting, good roof heights and with potential to convert into further accommodation (subject to the necessary consents). There is additional loft storage above bedroom three.

      Green Acre is accessed from Station Road via a large gravelled driveway, which offers ample parking for a number of cars and is enclosed and well-screened to the front by trees and mature hedging. To the east of the house is a former single garage which has been converted into an air-conditioned gym, with new Worcester Bosch boiler (2021) and additional space for appliances.

      Timber double gates open to the garden at the rear, which has been attractively landscaped with a large, part-covered split level decked terrace extending across the rear of the house, with power and lighting, an outside tap and a hot tub. The remainder of the garden is laid to recently-levelled lawn, edged by hedging and fencing; a timber shed runs alongside the western side of the house, where there is additional space for a bin/recycling store, or car parking behind the gates.

    I really like the kitchen and the flow between inside and outside - it's ideal for summer barbecues.
