About this property

  • 14 Plantation Avenue is a contemporary spacious end of terrace townhouse constructed of buff brick elevations with high specification double glazed windows and doors throughout. This attractive modern property also has a surprisingly large garden and aspects looking out into a colonnade of mature trees which creates a very private setting.

    The house is part of the first phase of a development called “Aura” which was completed in 2015 by well renowned developer Countryside and is arranged over three floors extending to approximately 3,567 sq ft not including a double garage (approx. 496 sq ft).

    The development is entered off Long Road and the property is located towards the eastern end of Plantation Avenue.

    The house is entered through a large front door which opens onto the hallway with engineered wood flooring, with a large storage cupboard on the left and views through the kitchen to the garden beyond. To the rear, the hall opens into a large open plan kitchen breakfast room with bi-folding doors offering views over the garden. The well-appointed kitchen has a wide array of modern base and wall units with composite stone worktops and a wide breakfast bar. There is a wide range of integrated Miele appliances including (but not limited to) a fan assisted oven, combination microwave, dishwasher, fridge, separate freezer, induction hob and a retracting Caple “flush fit” extractor fan and wine fridge.

    At the rear to the left is a large utility room which in turn leads past the cloakroom to the double garage.

    The garage, which has a large electronic sliding door, is large enough to park two cars with ample room around to permit bikes, garden furniture, fit general household requirements and store bins.

    Upstairs to the first floor there is an impressive drawing room with a “feature” ceiling with inlaid LED lighting and modern wood burner and views over the garden and tree belt beyond. There is a large bedroom on this floor with en suite shower room and more than ample built-in storage. A cloakroom completes the accommodation on this floor.

    On the top floor there are three further bedrooms (all en suite) including an outstanding master bedroom with floor-to-ceiling wardrobes, a large bathroom with bath and a walk-in rain effect shower. All the sanitaryware in the property benefits from Duravit with Hans Grohe fittings.

    Outside, a wide terrace runs the width of the house and leads onto an L-shaped garden laid mainly to lawn with side access.

I think this is one of the best houses on any development I've had the pleasure to sell. Surrounded by mature trees with a lovely garden and moments from the new country park this is a very special property bathed in natural light with fabulous attention to detail.
