About this property

  • Windrush House is an eye catching detached property dating from the 1930's, more recently extended and reconfigured to create a far more practical and efficient family home incorporating not only more living space but also a fifth bedroom with en-suite, all beautifully finished throughout

    The property now offers around 3400 sq ft of accommodation over two floors, the majority of the living space orientating toward the south facing garden creating a real sense of space and light. The central entrance porch opens to the spectacular galleried reception hall with solid Oak wooden floors leading onto the elegant formal living room with open fireplace and french doors opening onto the garden sun terrace. The hallway, which incorporates two good sized storage spaces, also leads to the study with its own built in storage, guest W/C and the highlight of the house- an impressive open plan dining kitchen with central island, extensive range of hand built units topped with granite worktops and finished with quality integrated appliances. The kitchen flows into the snug area and family room forming part of the extension, along with the particularly bright and airy garden room which features two glass atriums and three sets of french doors to the rear of the property. The second entrance hall opens to the self contained utility room and provides access into the double garage.

    To the first floor is an open landing that branches to the master bedroom with built in wardrobes, en-suite bathroom and access to the upper balcony which overlooks the stunning gardens. Three further double bedrooms all with built-in wardrobes, house bathroom, walk-in laundry cupboard and separate W/c. Bedroom five with en-suite bathroom and built-in storage is accessed via a second landing and staircase which ascends from the family room. This space is ideal for a nanny, dependent relative or teenager suite.

    Windrush House stands in extensive, highly private grounds of about an acre. Arched double wrought iron gates lead to a
    sweeping front drive with parking for multiple cars and an integral double garage. To the rear are south facing gardens with stocked borders and flower beds, bordered by
    evergreens and a mature trees, best enjoyed from a large stone paved terrace which flanks the rear of the house. This area is a fantastic space for entertaining and al fresco dinning.
