    About this property

    • 8 Thornton Road is a beautiful example of a substantially redeveloped former chalet which has been transformed by award winning architects to create expansive open plan living accommodation. The property has a natural and practical flow and displays an exceptional attention to detail with its modern finishes.

      Externally the property is striking in appearance with a series of brand new sloped slate roofs whilst the main construction is of timber frame with a rendered block finish. Immediately on turning into the property via the in-and-out driveway, the use of glass and Eternit cladding highlights the innovative design of the property.

      Internally the property is centred around three main reception areas. The magnificent drawing room with expansive floor to ceiling high windows with a section of vaulted roof creates a wonderfully bright and airy entertaining space, yet the lighting of the inset wood burning stove within the exposed slate clad chimney also makes this a more intimate and comforting family room. The open archway to the dining room with fully glassed external wall continues the flood of natural light. The light oak doors throughout the property maintain the fresh, contemporary tone, and the double doors from the dining room to the kitchen complete the run of impressive open areas creating the perfect sociable space for family living or larger scale entertaining. The kitchen itself is spectacular and the bi-folding doors out to the garden extend the space, bringing the outside in. The luxury German kitchen was fitted just six years ago and boasts a full range of integral Siemens appliances including combination microwave oven, conventional fan oven and grill, gas hob, integral multi-function coffee machine and two dishwashers. The large L shaped central island with Silestone work surface has discrete electric sockets and acts as the central hub to the home. Again the part-vaulted ceiling and sky lights ensure maximum natural light.

      Within the property there is an essential dedicated home working office with Juliet balcony, ample storage and the clever use of space even allows for a cosy snug with wood burning stove.

      The five bedrooms are all superbly proportioned and are accompanied by four bathrooms, three of which are en suite, making the bed/bath ratio luxuriously high. The principal bedroom also has a generous dressing room along with a particularly spacious en suite with both bath and shower fittings.

      Gardens and Grounds

      The gardens have been extensively landscaped and provide a fully enclosed rear garden as well as a spacious front courtyard. The rear garden is laid mostly to lawn with raised beds along the borders and mature hedges. The neighbouring grounds were historically the fire pond for the original Thornton Hall and has also been extensively landscaped ensuring a wonderful outlook in all directions.
