About this property

  • Spacious detached home with a fabulous rear garden, ideally located on a sought after residential road and conveniently positioned within a mile of Gerrards Cross station. The property is perfect for growing families with generous reception space, five bedrooms, a gated carriage driveway and a double garage.

    The ground floor offers a hugely versatile layout, with the reception hall, with storage and a guest cloakroom, leading to the principal rooms. A dining room lies to the front while the kitchen/breakfast room is located to the rear, overlooking the garden and with plenty of room for a table. The kitchen is well equipped with an array of units, complemented by granite worktops and integrated appliances. Just off the kitchen is a good sized utility room with space for appliances. From the kitchen, doors lead through to the double aspect study, enjoying beautiful views over the garden, incorporating a study area with an excellent range of built-in cabinetry by Neville Johnson, ideal for home working. Sliding doors give access to the outside terrace. Across the hall the sitting room, with a stone fireplace and gas fire, leads through to the garden room, flooded with natural light and with French doors to the garden.

    On the first floor the principal bedroom benefits from a range of built-in wardrobes and a luxurious en suite shower room, with a remote controlled shower. There are four further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and a well appointed family bathroom with a power shower over the bath.

    The property is approached through electric gates on to a large carriage driveway providing ample parking and leading to the double garage. High hedging and mature trees on the boundaries allows for a good deal of privacy. To the side a gate leads to a fantastic vine clad pergola, linking both the front and rear gardens. The south facing rear garden is a delight and a real feature of the house, with well stocked beds and borders including a meadow garden and a bluebell woodland area. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and is enclosed with fencing and mature trees, including a beautiful Magnolia, giving seclusion. A small lean-to greenhouse is a useful addition to the garden while a stone terrace adjoins the house giving an ideal spot for al-fresco dining in the summer months.
