About this property

  • Showcasing impressive lateral accommodation, the house offers five bedrooms and an abundance of living space over just two floors, with an additional workshop, gym and garage, all within a peaceful and convenient setting.

    Upon entering, the high quality of finish is immediately evident. The large entrance hall with attractive basket weave oak flooring leads through to the centrepiece of the house, a fabulous open plan kitchen/dining/family room with four sets of floor to ceiling bi-folding doors overlooking the beautiful garden. The sense of space and light in this room is striking and the oversized porcelain tile flooring brings a warmth and scale to the room. The kitchen is incredibly stylish and highly functional, with bespoke walnut units and quartz work top, a large central island with breakfast bar, and built in Neff appliances including four ovens, induction hob, dishwasher, integrated fridge and freezer and Quooker tap.

    The entertaining space in the house is highly impressive. The living space is stylishly presented and provides ample family space for a large dining table and nearby seating area with views of the garden. A large separate family/tv room leads off the main space and the playroom leads from the entrance hall, measuring an impressive 30 x 19ft with sliding doors out to the rear garden and access to the integrated garage. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a tucked away office, utility room, downstairs WC and an abundance of built in storage in the hall for coats and shoes.

    The staircase is beautiful with bespoke oak case detailing leading up the first floor. The landing is a bright and generous size, with built-in storage and a work space. The first floor provides five large bedrooms, all with built in storage and en suite bath/shower rooms with fixtures from Roper Rhodes. The principal bedroom has an abundance of built-in storage and open plan bathroom suite. Two shower rooms provide ‘Jack & Jill' en-suite facilities to the other four bedrooms, as well as a separate WC on the landing.

    The garden is beautifully utilised, wrapping around the house and has been extensively planted with a range of native and exotic plants. The highlight is the garden kitchen which leads directly from the house and is covered with a barrel steel structure, and incorporates a wood-fired Braai, sink and fridge. This area makes the perfect space for al fresco dining and becomes an extension of the house in the summer months. Further areas of interest include a built-in seating area with wood-fired pizza oven, children's play area with artificial grass, hot tub and decking area, a large workshop and second garage and gym room.

    Cedar View is a highly attractive home and careful consideration has been given to its construction by the owners, with Red Cedar cladding, eco-insulation, Omnie under floor heating, electric car charger and fully automated electric gates and garage doors.
