Spacious contemporary detached country residence with versatile accommodation.
This spacious and well-designed contemporary detached country residence is situated in a delightful elevated location at the end of its drive with mature, landscaped grounds extending to 3 acres. The property has been extended considerably over the years and the majority of it now has weatherboarded elevations beneath a part slate and part tiled roof.
The vendors have meticulously upgraded and extended Top Farm. The drawing room and kitchen alterations are especially worthy of note, the former having a stunning Border Oak exposed and vaulted timber frame and the latter has recently been re-fitted with a wonderful in-frame Shaker style Greenheart oak kitchen.
The oak front door and porch with slate flooring lead to a welcoming reception hall and an impressive turning staircase with oak handrails and glazed ballustrades. The inner hall with storage provides access to the main reception rooms, the vaulted drawing room being at the far end. This triple aspect room with an open inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove provides ample space for both sitting and dining as required and French doors lead to the south facing rear terrace.
To the right of the hall are a super triple aspect reception/games room with remote electric fire and upper bar area; a study with shelved library area and a cloakroom. Opposite, there are a pair of glazed doors to the snug sitting/TV room with French doors to the terrace and direct access to the stunning kitchen/dining room. As mentioned, this has recently been fully re-fitted and incorporates quartz worktops, a large central island with semi-circular oak breakfast bar, a range of fitted units incorporating a pantry store and dresser. An array of fitted appliances include an electric Rangemaster cooker, 5 ring induction hob, two ovens, and grill, , Quooker tap, waste disposal unit, dishwasher, larder style built in fridge and freezer and two wine fridges. This and the adjoining dining area provide a fantastic entertaining space which connects directly to the terrace and gardens and the whole area has wide, concrete style Porcelanosa floor tiles. Beyond the kitchen is the utility/boot room area and separate laundry and boiler room, access to the integral double garage and also to triple aspect GROUND FLOOR BEDROOM SUITE/MUSIC ROOM with external access and a shower room.
On the first floor, the galleried landing leads to a fantastic principal bedroom suite with roof terrace and distant views, an ensuite shower room with twin wash basins, wide walk in shower, bidet and WC. The dressing room beyond has a second wc. There are four further bedrooms, two of which also have en suites and a family bathroom with custom made oak Greenheart twin basin vanity unit, walk in shower and oval feature bath.
Outside remote-controlled wrought iron gates lead to a long gravel driveway and parking area with adjacent triple bay cart lodge including adjoining garden and log store.. Surrounded by the fenced and lawned gardens with tennis court, the private south facing rear terrace is a wonderful feature, perfect for al fresco dining. In all 3 acres.

I love the contemporary and versatile space that this fantastic family home has to offer with ample opportunities for multi-generational living. The distant views from the principal bedroom are such a bonusLucy BanksProperty agent
