Individually designed detached house in a sought-after semi-rural village.
Built in 2003, Woodside is an attractive and individually designed timber-framed detached home situated in a sought-after semi-rural lane in the village of Chelwood Gate. Swedish in design, Scandinavian style is echoed through the house with external elevations of part timber-clad sandstone, an attractive muted colour palette, and warm wooden flooring throughout the majority of the rooms; an abundance of glass and some vaulted ceilings give a feeling of space and allow lots of natural light.
The accommodation extends to over 2,000 square feet and is arranged over two floors, with some lovely views from the rear of the house over rural Chelwood Gate towards Birch Grove. The front door opens to an elegant vaulted entrance hall with the staircase rising to the first floor; a glazed door opens to the kitchen and breakfast room, which has bi-fold doors opening to the decked terrace, and space for a breakfast table and sofa. The kitchen is fitted with a range of painted wooden units, with Corian worktops and integrated appliances including a Smeg oven, five-ring gas hob and Neff dishwasher; there is space and plumbing for a larder-style fridge/freezer and a deep utility cupboard with space for laundry appliances.
The large, split level sitting and dining room is an excellent space; dual aspect with two sets of bi-fold doors opening to the garden, ample space for a large dining table and a comfortable seating area with a modern Morso woodburner set on a granite hearth.
A study (which could be used as a fourth bedroom) and a wet room complete the ground floor.
There are three generous bedrooms on the first floor, all with ample built in storage, including a wonderful vaulted principal suite with French doors fitted with plantation shutters opening to a private balcony, and an en suite wet room. Bedroom two also has an en suite shower room and bedroom three is served by the family bathroom.
Woodside is accessed from Tanyard Lane via an electronically operated five-bar gate, which opens to a block-paved driveway ahead of the house and adjoining double garage; there is gated access to the side of the house leading to a useful outside storage area with various storage sheds.
The rear garden is terraced, allowing some lovely far-reaching views over the countryside beyond. A large part decked/part artificial grass terrace adjoins the rear of the house, providing a number of spots for dining alfresco, with an outside fireplace and sunken hot tub. A path descends to a well-stocked flower and shrub garden, providing an ideal habitat for insects and bees, beyond here is a timber summer house with power, and a greenhouse.

Woodside is a really warm, welcoming home. I love how it feels as though the whole of the back of the house can open up to the terrace, creating a seamless flow between the house and garden.Rohan Vines
