About this property

  • Mulberry House is an impressive five bedroom, detached family home set in a quiet position in the heart of Alderminster. It has been extensively remodelled by the current owner in recent years and provides spacious accommodation over three floors with wonderfully high ceilings. The attention to detail throughout the house is exceptional and has resulted in a high calibre property that will suit a variety of purchasers.

    The attractive property has a rendered façade, tile roof, two chimneys and a tiled front porch.

    The drawing room, which is accessed from the light and airy entrance hall and sits at the front of the house, benefits from a fireplace with stone surround and newly fitted Dean Forge Dartmoor wood burner.

    The focal point of the house is the impressive open plan kitchen/dining/family room, which is wonderfully light and provides the ideal modern day living space. It is triple aspect with a wall of full height, Reynaers sliding glass doors opening onto the private terrace and loggia. There is plenty of room for a substantial dining table, as well as a generous sized seating area.

    The bespoke, hand painted Neptune kitchen completes the room and features a substantial central island and breakfast bar, extensive base units including an oak lined larder cupboard and velvet lined cutlery drawer, quartz worktops, Villeroy & Boch ceramic sink and contemporary glass splashbacks. Integrated appliances include a four oven, gas fired AGA, Hotpoint halogen hob, NEFF combi oven/microwave and a Caple wine fridge. There is plumbing for a dishwasher and a fridge/freezer.

    Leading off the kitchen is a useful boot room with a full length row of wooden wall pegs and external door to the rear courtyard. A utility area fitted with Neptune oak units, quartz worktops and Belfast sink provides space and plumbing for a washing machine and separate dryer.

    There is also a spacious study and well fitted cloakroom on the ground floor.

    The generous dual aspect master bedroom provides views across the village to hills beyond and benefits from a fitted wardrobe with internal lighting and a walk in dressing room area. The en-suite shower room has been beautifully styled with large walk in shower, Neptune oak wash stand with counter top basin and wc.

    There are three further double bedrooms on the first floor, one of which has an en suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom with Roca bath, walk in shower, Neptune vanity unit and wc.

    On the second floor is a generous landing lit by a large sky light, a dual aspect double bedroom and a bathroom with Roca bath, walk in shower, vanity unit and wc.

    Other specific features of the house highlighting the attention to detail include summer and winter use towel rails, fitted mirrors with de-mist pads and Mira shower fittings in the bathrooms and en suites, zoned dimmable LED lighting, and Cat 6 wiring.

    Outside the house enjoys a delightful grey Indian sandstone terrace area with attractive, timber framed loggia providing an ideal entertaining area in the winter and summer months. The terrace and loggia benefit from a carefully planned lighting system. The landscaped gardens continue with an area of lawn with mature trees, set behind yew and copper beech hedging. There is also a rear courtyard with dog shower and rear gate with sensor lighting.

    The house is approached by a gravel drive leading to a private gravel parking area. There is an oak framed garage to the side of the house with timber cladding, electric roller door, sensor lights and pedestrian access to the rear.

    This striking property offers the rare opportunity of spacious village living finished to a very high specification.

It is very rare to find a house in a popular village renovated with such attention to detail. I love the kitchen/dining/family room, which flows onto the terrace and loggia, creating a wonderful entertaining space.
