About this property

  • The main entrance leads to a large and welcoming hallway with a lightly stained hard wood floor with a guest cloakroom/shower room immediately to the left and two very large cupboards for external wear sports equipment etc.

    The formal drawing room is L shaped and both spacious and cosy and can facilitate a number of seating arrangements with a marble fireplace and hearth at the north end and a beautiful, bespoke built in display/storage cabinet on the opposite wall. The corniced room is fitted with a pair of full length Bi-fold doors which open to a veranda with a glass balustrade that runs the full length of the front elevation taking advantage of its south westerly aspect and encompassing the front garden.

    The golden hewed floorboards continue through to the kitchen/dining/ family room making it a warm and inviting space. The kitchen fitted in 2016 is classic yet contemporary in design with bespoke wooden cabinetry and a stone work surface. A centre island divides the space while providing storage and informal socialising and stable door provides access to the rear garden.
    The dining area is fitted, consistent in design, with a bespoke built in display/storage cabinet. The informal family area opens out to the veranda with full length bi-fold doors.

    The dining room/media room, which is referred to as the den, by our clients is to the north of the house which gives it a cool and calm atmosphere perfect for a formal dining room or media entertainment centre.

    The integral double garage is accessed from the hall and has built in storage for tools and a purpose built enclosed double pantry to keep items cool. This is also the hub for heating, mega-flow and water-softener etc.

    The wide staircase opens up to a generous first floor hallway flooded with natural light. The principal bedroom suite (bedroom 5), while not the largest bedroom, has been chosen for its view to a carefully landscaped rear garden and water feature centred to the room. The use of Bi-fold doors links them sublimely. A walk in wardrobe and ensuite shower room is perfectly designed.

    There are 4 further bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes, two of which are singularly ensuite while the last two are linked with a spacious Jack ‘n' Jill shower room. The largest end bedroom (bedroom 1) was designed as an office/studio with neat environment having fitted wardrobes installed which hideaway files, the utility washing/machine and dryer) and a half fridge which services the rear Garden patio, accessed from the upstairs landing through French doors.

    Stepped paths at either side of the house lead there with a separate ramped path designed to take a cherry picker for garden maintenance. A pergola runs around the perimeter of the large central lawn with deep beds and private luxurious seating areas on three sides to take advantage of the sun at all times of day. The garden which is fully irrigated, also has a green house on the south wall. The deeply decked patio area is perfect for entertaining guests and enjoying nature.
