About this property

  • This striking Millwood Designer home was built in 1997 to a high specification and has been later extended and comprehensively refurbished by the current owner to create a stunning, well appointed, family home.

    The property is built in an elevated position using an attractive traditional style, with tile-hung elevations and oak joinery and is set in a private tucked away position with far-reaching countryside views to the rear.

    The feeling of light and space is apparent as soon as you walk in, with tall windows to the front elevation rising above the reception hall to the half landing. This opens through to the impressive and generously proportioned family space, positioned to make the most of the wonderful southerly aspect to the rear.

    The dining room is open plan to a well-fitted David Haugh kitchen and divided from the family room by wide bi-fold glazed doors, creating adaptable space for entertaining and fitted with a wood burning stove with bi-fold doors giving direct access out to the extensive terracing and garden.

    The separate sitting room has a wide brick inglenook-style open fireplace, with hooded canopy and also benefits from doors out to the terrace.

    Six double bedrooms and a fine study are arranged over the top two floors; the spacious principal suite, comprising a stylish contemporary bath/shower room and a dressing area, and the study above it, are positioned on the southerly side, each with a glazed balustraded balcony where a wonderful view over the garden and beyond can be appreciated.

    Outside, the established level garden stretches mostly to the rear, with a wide flagstone entertaining terrace spanning the living space, an area of lawn and a mix of coniferous and deciduous mature trees and shrubs providing good screening to the boundaries and adjoining fields beyond.

    To the front, the property has a large graveled driveway with parking for several cars and an attractive coach house-style detached triple garage.
