    About this property

    • Falling Leaf is a striking individual contemporary home, sitting in what is approaching 5 acres of woodland with far reaching views. Built in 2016 by the current owners it is seamlessly designed and constructed with high grade materials and with meticulous attention to detail. The house offers elegant and generous accommodation arranged over three floors together with garaging and a detached self-contained annexe. Features include a built in wi fi system, integrated music system, underfloor heating and double glazing throughout, solar and photovoltaic panels, engineered oak flooring, CCTV, auto entry system and integrated window blinds on many of the windows. Of particular note are the beautifully appointed marble bathrooms and full height windows maximising the light.

      The vaulted reception hall is flooded with natural light with an open aspect through the property and access out on to the rear garden. Stairs lead to the first floor and a galleried landing above. Handsome oak flooring flows into the open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room which is very much the hub of the house, ideal for both family life and more formal entertaining. The sitting room, with full height windows and a splendid wood burner, overlooks the garden with sliding doors opening on to the garden and terrace. A built in media unit creates a perfect TV/snug area and a further door leads to the outside terrace. The dining area offers plenty of space for a good sized dining table, and features a lockable silver/drinks cupboard. The contemporary kitchen is a generous space, bespoke fitted with a luxurious range of units complemented by granite worktops. An impressive and practical island unit provides further storage and incorporates a wide breakfast bar for relaxed seating. Integrated appliances include a dual fuel electric Aga, oven, filter water tap, waste disposal, two dishwashers, wine cooler and with space for an American style fridge/freezer. The kitchen also benefits from a walk in larder and two sinks. Just off the kitchen is a boot room with a cloakroom, stairs to the lower ground floor and door access to the outside. Also on this floor on the other side of the reception hall are two bedrooms; a guest room with an en suite shower room and the principal bedroom with a Juliette balcony overlooking the garden and beyond. This room enjoys a fully fitted dressing room and a luxury bathroom with a separate shower cubicle and two basins. A cloakroom with adjacent coats storage and a home office with bespoke cabinetry completes the accommodation on this floor.

      An elegant glass and oak staircase leads to the wonderfully light, vaulted galleried landing. There are three bedrooms on this floor, two of which are served by a shower room. An attractive dual aspect guest suite overlooks the rear garden and woodland, and features a wonderful wood burner together with a dressing area and a beautiful en suite bathroom.

      The lower ground floor gives further accommodation including a media/games room and a central area with a wood burner, presently arranged as a meeting room. Off this area lies a studio/office, a plant room and a laundry room with fitted shelving and space for appliances.

      Outside
      Falling Leaf sits well in its own land with secluded woodland surroundings providing screening and privacy together with wonderful distant views. A long driveway approach through woodland leads to electric gates and an extensive parking area together with a wood store, garaging with an adjacent gym and a workshop. Two striking large ornamental ponds lie to the front of the property. To the side of the house is a formal garden with pergolas and an area of lawn with well stocked beds and borders. To the rear a large walled terrace adjoins the house with steps down to a lower walled terrace area with a delightful water feature and providing a perfect space for al fresco dining and entertaining. The garden enjoys a southerly aspect with flower beds, fruit trees and large areas of lawn with surrounding woodland. Of particular note is a large unconverted basement area which offers good potential for a multitude of uses.

      Annexe
      Located above the garage is a beautifully appointed self contained annexe, ideal for visitors or for staff accommodation. Door access leads to an entrance hall, with space for a washer/dryer, and stairs to the first floor. The annexe is arranged with an open plan layout comprising a fully fitted kitchen and dining area, leading into a sitting area and through to the bedroom with an en suite shower room.
