About this property

  • Constructed in around 2008 by a renowned local builder The Beeches sits proudly within an elevated position and overlooks the charming gardens and grounds that surround the property. The primary entrance hall immediately sets the tone for the scale and quality contained within this fantastic family home. The vaulted sitting room with exposed oak joinery enjoys the southerly aspect and a view over the farmed fields to the front, whilst the kitchen/breakfast room to the rear has access to the terrace and views over the garden and paddock beyond. Notable due to the addition of bi-folding doors and the open plan arrangement, the kitchen/breakfast room features high quality built in appliances and not only is the heart of the home but a stylish and practical space.

    Arranged over four floors there is a real sense of flexibility which is apparent on the lower ground floor that contains a gymnasium, utility and laundry room with guest bedroom that could become annexe accommodation.

    The primary suite is located on the first floor and enjoys the best of the views over the surrounding countryside, with two further bedrooms one of which is en suite, a dressing room and family bathroom complete the first floor. The accommodation continues to the second floor with two further bedrooms with plenty of built-in storage.

    Located on the lower ground floor is the boiler room, the engine room of the house which contains the systems required to run the geothermal hot water and central heating system. These include the heat recovery unit, the heat exchanger and large hot water storage tank. Also in this room can be found the water softener, the built-in vacuum system and the electronics for the Clipsal lighting system. The property is also wired for CCTV if required.

    The property is approached via a sweeping driveway which leads past the house, terminating in a large parking and turning area to the rear of the property adjacent to the detached double garage and summer house/office. The current owners have built an additional triple bay garage for cars and other leisure equipment. The formal gardens lead on from here, and whilst being interspersed by mature trees there are large areas of lawn and a terrace adjacent to the house which provides an idyllic entertainment area with views across towards the paddocks. Behind the garage lies an excellent summer house/office (14'3” x 12'7”) with light and power, which could be utilised for a number of purposes (subject to
    the necessary planning consents). In all the gardens and ground extend to approximately 0.8 acres.
