About this property

  • 68 High Street is a unique family home, with its eye-catching interior design setting it apart from most other homes in the village. Located within the centre of the village, there are an array of village amenities, which include the well-regarded Village College and medical centre. Tucked away in a secluded position, the home is accessed via a private gated gravel driveway with a car port with space for two vehicles.

    The flexible accommodation is set over two floors under a pitch-tiled roof. Entering through a bespoke Dutch/stable style front door, the vaulted entrance offers access to the majority of the ground floor accommodation. The focal point of the home is the open-plan kitchen/dining room, which offers a sublime entertaining space along with practical family living. Bi-fold doors open out to the garden area and floods the room with natural light and a wood burner creates a cosy, snug area to enjoy. The kitchen offers wall and floor storage units, integrated ovens, an inset gas hob, an integrated fridge/freezer, and a dishwasher. The sitting room offers a quiet retreat that also enjoys views over the rear garden, and there is a family room/snug located at the front of the home. There is a ground floor double bedroom that could also be used as a study, located next to the ground floor bathroom, which has been beautifully designed to incorporate a standalone roll-top bath and wet room area with a waterfall shower. The ground floor accommodation is completed by the cloakroom and the utility room, which comprise further storage, an integrated sink, plumbing for a washing machine, and a rear patio door.

    Moving up to the first floor is a bright and open landing space that gives access to the three double bedrooms as well as a generous amount of eaves storage and an airing cupboard. The main bedroom offers a Juliette balcony with bifold doors providing a view over the rear garden, and also has the added benefit of having planning permission in place to create an en suite shower room. The first-floor accommodation is completed by the family bathroom, which comprises a standalone roll-top bath, wash basin, and low-level WC.

    The cleverly designed and landscaped garden offers a tranquil, relaxing space to enjoy. The raised composite decking encompasses the rear of the house, with a covered pergola leading off from the rear of the house. A delightful seating area sits to the side of the garden, with a stone-lay patio under a further covered pergola, bordered by raised beds and soft lighting overhead. Herbaceous borders run around the garden. A main feature of the garden is the home gym, which has been created from a reclaimed shipping container and has been designed with a pitched living roof to offer a cabin feel to the design. The gym could also be used as a garden office or art studio.
