About this property

  • Occupying a prime location about half a mile from the station and shops, this substantial family home offers beautifully presented accommodation, ideal for both family life and entertaining friends. Constructed in 1922 by architect Robert G Muir, Arkley has been sympathetically extended by the current owners now approaching 7,000 sq ft with accommodation arranged over three floors.

    The accommodation flows well with a grand reception featuring an oak split staircase creating an excellent first impression. A drawing room to the front, formerly the billiard room for Arkley, features an ornate brick fireplace and original parquet flooring. Across the hall the media room, which could also be arranged as a dining room, overlooks the frontage. An elegant sitting room and adjacent fully fitted study enjoy views over the rear garden with French doors in the sitting room opening on to the terrace. The superb kitchen/dining room overlooks the garden to the rear and offers an open plan sociable space, perfectly suiting the practicalities of everyday living. The kitchen itself is beautifully appointed with bespoke fitted units complemented by granite worktops and an excellent range of integrated appliances. A central island incorporates a circular oak breakfast bar. In the dining area wide bi-fold doors open the space to the garden and terrace. Just off the kitchen is a fully fitted utility room, shower room, wine cellar and separate well-appointed boot room with built-in cabinetry. In addition is a further area which could be used as a self-contained suite, ideal for relatives or staff and comprises a sitting room/kitchen, shower room and bedroom. The property benefits from underfloor heating throughout most of the ground floor, and an integrated music system. The first floor features a galleried landing flooded with natural light from the second floor atrium. The principal bedroom offers a quiet retreat with a Juliette balcony overlooking the garden, a range of built-in wardrobes, fully fitted dressing room and luxurious en suite bathroom. There are three further double en suite bedrooms and an additional bedroom served by a family bathroom. Of particular note on this floor is a superb laundry room, with ample cabinetry and plumbing for appliances. On the top floor is further accommodation providing versatile space, with a bedroom served by a shower room and a snug/TV room with access to two eaves storage areas.

    Set back from the road behind electric gates, a spacious carriage driveway provides ample parking and leads to the garage. To the rear the garden is a real feature of the property and gives a lovely backdrop to the house. The garden is thoughtfully landscaped and separated into distinct areas, with a large terrace spanning the full width of the house providing an ideal spot for outside entertaining.

    Steps from the terrace lead to a large area of lawn with gated access to the swimming pool and pool house. A stone terrace surrounds the pool bordered with well stocked flower beds giving colour and scent, alongside a pool house with kitchen area, changing room and shower room.
