    About this property

    • Countrylands is a beautifully presented family home, built in the 1950s with sympathetic extensions by the current owners. There is much to impress with superb versatile family accommodation arranged over three floors. Of particular note are the attractively landscaped front and rear gardens.

      This detached property is generously sized throughout with ample space for both everyday life and entertaining friends and family. The reception hall features a bespoke American oak staircase with tiled flooring and underfloor heating extending to most of the ground floor. There are two formal reception rooms, a dual aspect sitting room overlooking the rear garden with French doors and feature wood burner together with a dining room, ideally located off the kitchen. A large study to the front provides an ideal home working space. The spacious kitchen/breakfast/family room benefits from lovely garden views with French doors opening out on to the terrace. The kitchen is well appointed with a comprehensive range of units, integrated appliances and Corian worktops while a large central island gives further storage and breakfast bar seating. There is plenty of room for a dining or seating area. A guest cloakroom and fully fitted utility room complete the ground floor accommodation.

      The bedroom accommodation is arranged on the first floor with five double bedrooms, four with en suite bath/shower rooms, and a family bathroom. The main staircase from the reception hall splits at the half landing with stairs leading to the vaulted principal bedroom, with two concealed built-in wardrobes and an en suite wet room with underfloor heating. Bedroom 2 and bedroom 5 would work well as a separate annexe area as they can also be reached via an additional staircase in the dining room. On the top floor is a large eaves room, ideal as a games room/gym, together with a further study.

      The mature, established gardens at Countrylands are superb and a real feature of the property. Both front and rear gardens are attractively landscaped with beautifully planted, well stocked beds and borders giving a profusion of colour. The rear garden enjoys a large area of manicured lawn, wrapping around the house to the side, interspersed with a variety of specimen trees. In the corner is a recently refurbished swimming pool, alongside a pretty thatched summer house. A large terrace adjoins the house to the rear, extending to the pool and creating an ideal outside dining and entertaining space. The boundaries are well screened with fencing, high hedging and mature trees offering a high degree of privacy and seclusion. In addition is a log store, gardeners WC and a vehicular entrance at the very rear if required. A gravelled driveway at the front provides ample parking and leads to a double garage.
