An impressive period home in a highly desirable private road in the Abbotsbrook Estate, close to the village, the river and station, with room to extend (subject to planning). Chain free.
Offering a coveted amount of tranquillity, Abbey Way sits ensconced within large gardens and offers picturesque views that reach down to the river. A hugely versatile and characterful layout retains an abundance of original charm and character with its exposed timber beams and focal point fireplaces. A wonderfully fluid and light filled arrangement extends to over 2600sq ft. and includes three reception rooms, an excellent kitchen/dining room, study, four bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms, as well as having the added benefit of a cellar.
Designed to maximise the views of the gardens, three hugely elegant and impressively proportioned reception rooms are found on the ground floor. Beneath the rich tones of exposed timber beams, each room generates a magnificent amount of space in which to relax and entertain with two featuring outstanding period fireplaces. Beautifully lit by bay and oriel windows a double aspect sitting room opens into the tremendous dining room, while outside a veranda is perfectly placed for al fresco entertaining. The wonderfully sized and traditionally styled kitchen/dining room adds to the highly sociable feel and is superbly appointed with a central island and first class array of integrated appliances. A study is ideal for anyone in need of dedicated home office space and a utility room with garden access accommodates laundry appliances. A sophisticated bedroom creates ample flexibility for multi-generational households and sits across from a shower room with the striking vibrant colours of its original tiles. Three additional bedrooms are found on the first floor including one with an en suite shower room and river views. A marvellous family bathroom with both an inset bath and separate walk-in shower completes the layout. Beneath the house a series of cellar rooms produce a host of possibilities and additional storage.
Tucked away behind a gated gravel driveway that gives a notable feeling of privacy, the quintessential gardens that wrap-around the house produce an inviting place to escape from the hubbub of the day. A landscaped paved patio is ideal for al fresco dining and the established long lawns supply ample opportunity for children to play and explore. Tall trees and mature shrubs lend colour and interest throughout the seasons, adding an enchanting backdrop to this Bourne End home. Detached triple garaging with private driveway approached via electric gates combine to supply off-road parking.
