About this property

  • Birchwood is a superb modern house, with Cape Cod timber cladding, and part tile-hung and brick elevations under a hand-made clay-tiled roof. This bespoke property was completed to an exacting standard in 2018, with the remainder of a 10 year LABC Warranty and offers spacious, light accommodation, which has been finished to a high specification, extending in total to 3,689 square feet.

    The floorplans offer an excellent overview of the full extent and layout of the property, with points of note including a distinctive split-level design, porcelain tiles and engineered wood flooring to the ground/lower ground floor. This is complemented by high performance timber double glazed windows and doors, luxury fittings and generous proportions throughout.

    The focal point of day-to-day life is the stunning Tom Howley kitchen. With its bespoke handcrafted and painted wood cabinets and drawers, as well as a beautifully designed pantry, there are also quartz surfaces and an extensive range of integrated Miele appliances; comprising an induction wok hob, extractor fan, dishwasher, combi steam oven, combi microwave, multi-function oven, two warming drawers/sous chefs, two fridge freezers and two wine coolers. The kitchen is open to the dining/family room, which has full height windows framing the views across the garden, and bi-fold doors to the terrace creating a sense of space. The utility room has numerous cupboards and includes a Miele tumble dryer and a Miele TwinDos washing machine.

    The drawing room has a wood-burning stove under a heavy oak mantel, while the games room has space for a pub-sized pool table, as well as a lounge area.

    The impressive principal bedroom has a large window, offering glorious views across the surrounding landscape; there are several built-in wardrobes leading to a dressing room with plentiful storage. Beyond this, the en-suite wet room has a walk-through spa-style shower, free standing oval bath, a large basin with drawer under, WC and two heated towel rails.

    There are three further bedrooms, one en-suite and one currently used as an office, and a family bathroom; all bathrooms are finished to a luxurious standard. There is Cat 5e cabling throughout the house and network points in every room, perfect for working from home.

    Birchwood is approached from Slaugham Lane by five bar gates which open on to the gravelled drive. There is cabling provision to the gates which could be suitable for outdoor lighting. The driveway provides parking for four/five vehicles in front of the integral garage.

    The landscaped gardens lie mainly to the south and west of the house, with a gravelled terrace and steps leading up the lawn. A retaining wall is planted with a wide range of flowers and plants, while the garden is enclosed by mature mixed hedging, with fruit trees planted, and a wood store located to the rear of the property.
