About this property

  • This superbly presented and re-furbished family home, originally built in about 1930, offers beautifully designed accommodation. Of particular note is a superb guest suite which would be ideal for use as an annexe for an au pair, relatives or guests.

Walnut flooring flows through the reception rooms (excluding the dining room) and study. The sitting room is triple aspect and of excellent proportions, with a bay window to the front and features a further stone fireplace as a focal point. The room also benefits from a projector and concealed cinema screen. A family/TV room lies to the front of the house, and there is a quietly located study to the rear with an adjacent cloakroom. The kitchen/breakfast room opens into the dining room, with attractive oak herringbone flooring, providing a wonderful sociable space, ideal for family life. The kitchen is bespoke fitted with an excellent range of hand painted units with marble and oak worktops. A large breakfast bar gives informal seating and integrated appliances include a mixed fuel hob, extractor, coffee machine, three ovens, dishwasher and full size fridge and matching freezer. The dual aspect dining room enjoys a fireplace, bespoke fitted cabinetry and overlooks the garden, with French doors opening on to the outside terrace. Off the kitchen is a lobby area with stairs to the guest suite, and with door access to the garage and outside rear driveway. There is also a well equipped utility room, with matching bespoke cabinetry, plenty of storage units complemented by oak worktops, a second integrated dishwasher, insinkerator, washing machine, tumble drier. The utility room gives access to a coat cupboard and a further door to the side garden. The majority of the ground floor and all the first floor bathrooms benefit from underfloor heating.

    There is walnut flooring throughout the first floor with a generous landing with bespoke fitted storage cupboards and window seats with walnut detailing. The principal bedroom overlooks the front garden, and enjoys a bespoke fitted dressing room with walnut detailing and a beautifully appointed en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms off the landing, two with built-in wardrobes, served by the family bathroom. The guest suite, accessed from the rear lobby, is superb with a bedroom and dressing area together with a sitting room and en suite bathroom.
