Substantial detached family home with spa complex, home office and beautiful landscaped gardens.
Ferndale is a substantial and well-presented detached house, originally built in 1952, and significantly extended in 2002 to offer over 4,000 square feet of spacious and light accommodation arranged over three floors. The property is beautifully presented, and offers modern touches including Rako LED lighting, air conditioning to some rooms and a full fibre (FTTP) connection to the property.
The floorplans offer an excellent overview of the full layout and extent of the property, with points of particular note being the drawing room, a triple aspect room with Victorian style fireplace set with an Esse wood burning stove, and offering direct access to the side and rear terraces.
The kitchen is well fitted with a good range of wall hung and under-counter American oak units, with granite worktops, glass breakfast and a two-oven oil fired AGA. Miele fitted appliances include an oven/microwave, steamer, induction hob, dishwasher and fridge. The kitchen is open to the dining room, which has a large bay window and air conditioning. Double doors open to the conservatory, which gives access to the terrace and the spa room.
The principal bedroom suite occupies the southern portion of the first floor and comprises bedroom with bay window offering views over the gardens, dressing room with fitted wardrobes and a spacious en suite bathroom with limestone tiling, a roll top bath, a separate shower cubicle, a pair of basins and a WC. There are three further bedrooms (one en suite) and a family bathroom on the first floor.
The second floor offers two good sized rooms, served by a WC. Currently used as an office and storage, they would be suitable for use as either further bedrooms or a home cinema.
Accessed via its own external entrances to the front and rear, or via secure doors from the conservatory, the spa complex is a superb feature of the property. It offers excellent leisure facilities including swimming pool with swim jets, eight person spa pool, space for gym equipment, Harvia four person sauna, wet-room with WC, sun lamps and six fully retractable bi-fold doors opening to the rear terrace and garden. A 60 plasma TV, Lutron lighting, underwater lighting and full surround sound system means this is a fantastic space for both exercise and for entertaining. Sealed blinds fitted into all windows ensure comfort and privacy.
Ferndale is situated on a private lane, and is well-screened by hedging. Entry is via a block paved carriage driveway with two pairs of secure twin-leaf hydraulic steel framed aroco timber gates, operated by a wireless entry system.
The driveway offers ample parking to the front of the house, if required for guests, and there is a detached triple bay garage with remote opening electric doors, one with a 32A fast charger for an electric vehicle. A further bike store/workshop adjoins the house, with the pool machinery room sited to the rear.
The landscaped front and rear gardens are both equipped with an irrigation system and extensive outdoor lighting. The rear of the property is spanned by a terrace, offering plenty of space for entertaining and eating al fresco; steps lead down to a large fountain, creating a striking focal point, and on to the remainder of the gardens, which are mainly laid to lawn. There is a timber summer house. The grounds extend in all to about 1.5 acres.
