    About this property

    • 27 Church Street is a lovely family home. Built in 2013 on the site of former bungalow and owned from new, the individual property has been well-designed and provides very comfortable, contemporary style accommodation over two floors. Of rendered elevations beneath a tiled roof, the house is fitted and equipped to a high standard with hardwood double glazed windows (some of which have been fitted with shutters) two en suites (one ground floor) and a family bathroom and an impressive fitted kitchen. There is limed wood effect flooring to much of the ground floor with tiled flooring (with underfloor heating) in the kitchen and dining areas.

      The welcoming accommodation flows from the entrance hall with its turning stairs. The study is to the right overlooking the front of the property with extensive fitted shelves and display units, cupboards and drawers, work surfaces and desk space. Beside this is the guest suite (or second sitting room) with part glazed French doors to the rear and an en suite wet room. The main living accommodation, to the left of the hall comprises a really spacious L-shaped room comprising sitting/dining and kitchen areas - the double aspect sitting area at the front has a fireplace (not used at present) with shelving beside; the dining area - also double aspect- with bi-folds to the rear and tiled flooring leading into the kitchen area. Here there are a range of matte grey painted units with soft-close cupboards and drawers and Corian worktops incorporating the sink and drainer with mixer taps. There is a useful breakfast bar with an attractive curved worktop and floor unit at the far end. A range of fitted appliances include two Siemens ovens, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and an induction hob with extractor. This area also directly connects with the bi-fold doors and the decking - providing an outside “extension” to this lovey space. A large cloakroom/utility with plumbing for a washing machine, boiler cupboard and further storage completes the ground floor accommodation.

      On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, the impressive vaulted master suite is fitted with a wall of wardrobes with spotlighting above and a spacious en suite bathroom - also vaulted and fitted with twin wash basins, a large (lit) mirror, a shower with drench and hand held shower and a couple of lit recesses. The second double aspect bedroom has a useful study or dressing area to the rear and both this and the third bedroom have fitted wardrobes and dormer windows with a semi-circular “step” to the front. The family bathroom has an oval wash basin, bath with shower fitting and a number of lit recesses (one mirrored).

      Outside
      The gated property has a drive leading to the detached garage with remote controlled door. External steps lead to a large store room above with potential (subject to planning permission) for a studio/games room. The gardens are predominantly to the rear and mainly lawned with hedged and fenced boundaries with decking and an Indian sandstone terrace with plenty of space for sitting and dining.

      Agent's note
      The property enjoys a right of way over the neighbour's drive from Church Street.

    I was really impressed with this house the moment I walked in the door - the amazing sitting/dining/kitchen which links directly to the south facing garden - is a wonderful contemporary open plan space perfect for entertaining.
