About this property

  • Built in 2016, 5 Old House Lane is a very attractive modern family home, with part-weatherboarded brick elevations and featuring a striking tower in the north-eastern corner. The house offers nearly 2,600 square feet of very well presented accommodation over two floors, carefully designed to maximise space and natural light, and combining classic and contemporary design with sustainable materials and state of the art technology. Particular points of note include a Commodore kitchen with Silestone worktops and range of integrated ‘A' rated Bosch appliances, Roca bathroom suites with Porcelenosa tiles, and Amtico flooring in many of the rooms.

    The ground floor accommodation lies off a spacious and welcoming entrance hall with a central staircase rising to the first floor. Double doors open to the triple aspect sitting room: a beautiful room with a vaulted ceiling, doors to the garden and a fireplace with limestone surround set with a Jetmaster woodburner. The kitchen, snug and dining room forms the real hub of the home, offering a stylish yet comfortable space for everyday family life, the dining area filled with light by way of a large roof lantern and bi-fold doors opening to the terrace and garden.

    The kitchen is served by a useful utility room. A playroom (which could be used as a formal dining room), a good-sized study and a cloakroom complete the ground floor.

    There are five bedrooms on the first floor, including a generous principal bedroom with dressing area, a range of fitted mirrored wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with suite including a bath and separate shower. Bedroom two has an en suite shower room making it an ideal guest bedroom; the remaining bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.

    To the front of the house is a block paved driveway with parking for up to four cars, ahead of the integral double garage which has an electronically operated door, power and lighting. A pathway flanked by shrub borders and a small area of lawn leads to the front door. The west-facing rear garden is well-enclosed by a red brick wall and fencing, with a row of young trees giving additional privacy. The garden is ideal for families: largely comprising an area of level lawn, with a large paved terrace extending across the rear of the house.

This house has a lot to offer - the south-west facing garden and the charming to the front are particularly pleasing.
