About this property

  • A beautifully presented six bedroom detached house with large detached annexe and triple garage occupying a two acre level plot with landscaped gardens and an area of woodland at the far end.

    Silver Birches is a substantial and beautifully presented detached property occupying a stunning plot of about two acres. There is a wonderful first impression on entry via the porch and ornate oak double doors leading to the welcoming reception hall with a central oak staircase and porcelain stone effect flooring. All the principal reception rooms are accessed from the reception hall with the spacious layout ideal for both family living and entertaining. The formal sitting room has a feature inglenook style fireplace with gas burner and bi folding doors opening on to the rear garden. Double doors connect with the kitchen/diner. There is a bay fronted family room, double aspect study with a bespoke range of fitted furniture and also a utility room.

    Undoubtedly the heart of the house is the large open plan kitchen/diner with space for family dining and relaxation by the bi-folding doors that again open on to the rear garden. The kitchen area is superbly fitted with an extensive range of units with granite worktops and central island. Built-in appliances include a range cooker, microwave, warming drawers, coffee machine and dishwasher with a double butler sink and circular inset bowl with a waste disposal. There is under floor heating throughout the ground floor.

    In total there are six bedrooms arranged over the two upper floors. The main bedroom has a luxurious en suite with Jacuzzi bath and separate, wet room style shower with a further three similarly well-appointed bath/shower rooms on the first floor, two of which provide en suite facilities. Bedrooms one and four both have doors opening on to a large roof terrace, the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the lovely views over the rear garden.

    A further staircase leads to the second floor and another double bedroom with a cleverly designed en suite shower room.

    To the right of the house there is a substantial double aspect annexe with kitchen, living room and shower room, providing large open plan space for use as studio accommodation, home office, gym, etc, and connecting to a triple garage at the front with one area currently used as storage.

    An outstanding feature is the stunning, level plot, extending to about two acres, well screened at the front for seclusion and privacy with solid, electrically operated entrance gates opening on to the sweeping gravel driveway providing plenty of parking and turning space. This continues with wide access between the house and annexe to the beautifully landscaped rear garden and large paved patio for al fresco entertaining.

    Pathways lead across the extensive areas of lawn, with well stocked flower and shrub beds, vegetable garden, shed and greenhouse, raised decking with sunken hot tub, mature hedges and trees on the boundary, and at the far end an area of woodland, a haven for wildlife and a real adventure playground for children.
