About this property

  • Pennwood is an immaculate family home with spacious and well thought out accommodation with much consideration into the practicalities of everyday family living. The large entrance hall with its oak floor and bespoke oak winding staircase, opening to the striking galleried landing, is at the heart of the house with all main rooms leading off.

    The contemporary kitchen/ breakfast room with its sleek design and granite worktops, stone floor, four oven Aga and a circular breakfast bar is a welcoming family room. Steps lead down to a delightful sunroom with doors opening to the garden. Both the drawing room and dining room are large, light airy rooms with working fireplaces and bi-folding doors opening onto the terrace. A study and cloakroom are also situated off the hall. From the kitchen a rear hall leads on to a custom- made oak boot room, family room, cloakroom and utility room. From here a door opens to a small hallway with stairs leading to a delightful, self-contained, one bedroom flat.

    The galleried landing on the first floor has full height oak cupboards and shelves to one side with an inviting window seat opposite. The principal bedroom suite is of particular note with views over the garden and beyond. The bespoke dressing room has been beautifully designed using Walnut. The en suite has a double vanity unit with a walk-through shower. The guest bedroom with its double doors opening to a Juliet balcony has an en suite shower room and separate sitting area. There are two further bedrooms and a family shower room.

    Pennwood is approached under a canopy of mature trees through a wooden gate. On entering there is ample parking and a three bay timber framed garage (one with lockable doors) and steps to a self- contained, one bedroom annexe.
    The gardens, designed by the reputable Nicholsons, experts in maximising the surroundings, detail Yew and Beech hedging, mature herbaceous borders and a circular box and lavender feature with its central copper spherical sculpture. A purpose- built barbeque loggia with its own fireplace nestles in a corner of the garden.

    The Crown Pavilion built cinema room, with its Cedar cladding, bi-folding doors, cinema room, bar, cloakroom and separate under cover hot tub adds another dimension to the garden. It is also air conditioned and has heating. A gate leads on to the paddock beyond.

    On entering the driveway it immediately splits to a second driveway leading on to outbuildings and workshops. The main workshop is extensive with pedestrian and vehicular access. oak framed under a tiled roof, it is equipped with a substantial workbench, boarded out loft space and industrial wood burner. Power and water are connected. A second workshop, and with vehicular access has stairs to a large storage area above.
    Power is connected.

    A third smaller workshop, also with power, has pedestrian access and a woodshed to one side. Behind the workshops, also with access from the main garden, is the vegetable and cutting garden, a further lawn and a chicken run. There are two further double length storage/garden sheds.
    The extensive workshops and sheds would easily lend themselves to a variety of uses including a small business.

    All mains services are connected. Gas central heating. Fibre optic broadband.

Three in one - a cracking family home, a great anexe for the teenagers or relatives, and a studio over the garage to escape to! And there's plenty more to see. Absolutely worth viewing.
