    About this property

    • Built in 2012, Silvergrove is a striking detached house, built from Scandahus materials and with timber framed, part cedar-clad elevations under a slate tiled roof.

      The house offers a versatile layout, and is currently configured as two bedroom house with an adjoining self-contained one bedroom annexe. These sections could easily be combined to create a three bedroom property. Silvergrove offers a high quality, contemporary finish with features including oak and marble flooring (Karndean flooring to the annexe), underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, Anderson hurricane resistant vinyl-wrapped timber framed windows and a sound system installed throughout. The property has the benefit of a recently serviced heat recovery system, thermal roof panels for a solar hot water system and a recently fitted condensing boiler.

      The floorplans offer an excellent overview of the extent and layout of the accommodation; of particular note is the open plan living room, a partially vaulted space which has been cleverly zoned into distinct areas, proving sitting room, dining room and kitchen. A focal point is the marble gas fire place with an oak mantel; the whole area has been fitted with coloured LED lighting. The fully-fitted kitchen has an elegant curved bar area, with wine storage beneath.

      The principal bedroom is reached via a hardwood U-shaped staircase, flooded with natural light via a reclaimed interior stained glass window and a self-cleaning roof light. This bedroom has a glass fronted balcony offering southerly views, and an en suite bathroom with a free standing bath, fitted wardrobes and a laundry chute to the kitchen.

      There are two further bedrooms, both situated on the ground floor, one lying off the hallway with a Jack & Jill wet room. The final bedroom is situated in the adjoining annexe, which has both its own private access via bi-fold doors to the front and a door to the main accommodation, and comprises an open plan living room/kitchen, a bedroom with en suite wet room and sliding doors to a private portion of garden. The annexe is fitted with electric blinds and currently used as a holiday let.

      The house is approached from Allington Road by a driveway, which offers parking ahead of the house and is fitted with an EV charging point. The fully enclosed garden lies mainly to west and north of the property with space for seating, lawns and flower beds; there is a perimeter light system around the property.

    I really like the light, bright interiors and the versatile layout. Newick is a great village for families.
