A superbly situated family home with large south facing garden close to good independent schools.
Bentley Road is approached over a gravel drive with parking for numerous cars. A zinc roof vestibule porch with stone flooring leads through into the main hallway with engineered wood flooring and a large picture window. To the right is a well-proportioned dual aspect sitting room with a charming wood burner and bi-folding doors out onto a terrace and into the garden. Towards the rear of the hallway there are double glazed doors which leads through to the exceptional kitchen/breakfast room. There are floor and wall mounted wooden kitchen units, space for an American fridge freezer, stone composite work surfaces, polished concrete flooring, breakfast bar and a Bosch hob with an integrated extractor. This space can easily accommodate for a large dining table and chairs and also boasts two large ovens and a microwave oven with a warming draw beneath. There is a sliding bi-folding door which leads out to the terrace. Accessed from the kitchen is a useful utility room, WC and another dual aspect reception/family room with bi folding doors allowing plenty of light into the room and a stylish freestanding woodburner. There is a further storage room, with an extra area with an electric garage door which could be converted back into a garage if required. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a study that could be an additional small dining room.
Upstairs there are five bedrooms, two of which have en suites. A family bathroom equipped with a freestanding bath by Sottini and an oversized shower head, serves the entirety of the house. The principal bedroom has doors giving access onto a roof terrace with a glazed balcony, as well as a Juliet balcony with panoramic views over the garden, and benefits from a dressing room with an abundance of storage. The tiled en suite bathroom has twin sinks, a freestanding Sottini bath and separate walk-in shower.
The rear garden is south facing and fully enclosed. There is a full width paved terrace and further larger terrace with colourful low level planting and large well maintained lawn beyond. To the east is a raised herb and flower bed constructed of railway sleepers with planting which leads to a paved seating area, designed to take advantage of the late evening sun with a timber pergola over climbing rose. At the back of the plot is a deceptively large detached Scandinavian style timber outbuilding with heated indoor swimming pool (7.35m x 3.05m / 24' x 10'), full size hot tub, sauna, shower and changing areas along with pool pump/filtration store.
