About this property

  • 5 Selkirk Drive is a beautifully presented detached house and the current owners have undertaken a comprehensive scheme of renovation and refurbishment. The project has been carried out with meticulous attention to detail and the house has a high quality specification with a fresh and contemporary feel. The entire house is wonderfully bright and airy and the owners have decorated with tremendous taste and style.

    Glazed solid wood French doors give access to the kitchen/dining room, a truly stunning space with high quality Siematic fitted units, integrated Gaggenau appliances, Franke boiling and cold filtered water tap and a central chef's island/breakfast area with induction hob and ceiling extractor above. High quality bi-fold doors open out from the kitchen to an entertaining patio which is a wonderful extension of the space during the summer months. Under floor heating has been installed in all tiled areas. The separate utility room also has a range of base units, sink and plumbing for a washer/dryer.

    To the other side of the hallway is a study/snug with solid wood floor and view across the front garden. The study is linked to the sitting room through a glazed solid wood door. The sitting room is a beautifully bright space benefitting from a dual aspect with a window to the front at one end of the room and bi-fold doors to the other.

    The accommodation on the ground floor is completed by a cloakroom with w/c.

    On the first floor is a principal bedroom with en suite shower room, fitted wardrobes and dual aspect windows. There are 3 further guest bedrooms on this level and a family bathroom.

    The property is approached at the front through electric gates. The property has tremendous kerb appeal with a rendered facade, shrubs, plants and lawn and there is also access to a single garage. The property has a utility access at the side of the house leading to the rear garden. The is parking on the driveway.

    With the assistance of a well regarded garden designer the vendors have put real thought into the planning, planting and design of the rear garden and no expense has been spared in creating a space that has colour, contrast and interest throughout the year. Importantly the garden has been carefully sectioned out so that there are designated spaces for entertaining, relaxing and a lawned area for children to play. There is plenty of external lighting so that the garden can be enjoyed year round. A water channel next to the built-in seating area creates a really serene ambiance and it is a lovely space to relax in.

    At the end of the garden is a purpose built two room cabin which is a fantastic flexible space, ideal as a home office/gym but currently used as an extension of the entertainment space with the second room a playroom. The cabin is fully insulated and has a log burner so an ideal place to continue to enjoy views of the garden during the winter months. There is underfloor heating and air conditioning.


    Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage.
