    About this property

    • Occupying a delightful position directly opposite Burnham Beeches, Tall Trees is tucked away in beautifully landscaped gardens in this sought after location. This family home was built in about 1996 in a charming traditional style to a bespoke specification and offers spacious accommodation. Character features include reclaimed beams, exposed brick and lead glass windows. About 0.89 acres in all.

      The ground floor is part open plan, with a welcoming and spacious reception hall leading to a dining area and through to the kitchen/breakfast/family room. The hall features a striking staircase and a galleried landing above. A formal drawing room enjoys a triple aspect overlooking the gardens to the front, with a decorative stone fireplace and French doors opening on to the outside terrace. The hand built bespoke kitchen is comprehensively fitted with an excellent range of units and granite worktops, and incorporates a useful breakfast bar. A walk in pantry gives additional storage. Appliances include a gas hob with extractor, two ovens (one extra wide), fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. The family area is a fabulous space, overlooking the garden and with bi-fold doors opening on to the terrace. A brick fireplace on the far wall, together with a woodburner, is a real feature of the room. A large utility room connects with the kitchen and gives door access to the rear garden. Across the reception hall is a lovely dual aspect study with built in shelving, and a further reception room/bedroom to the rear, offering a flexible space, with an en suite wet room. A cloakroom completes the accommodation on the ground floor.

      The feature staircase leads to a large landing, with plenty of room for a seating/study area. The principal bedroom is dual aspect and overlooks the garden, with a large balcony providing an ideal spot to enjoy the view. A spacious en suite bathroom leads through to a fully fitted dressing room. There are three further bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes. Two of the rooms share an en suite bathroom while the remaining bedroom has an en suite shower room.
