A beautifully presented family home in a mature setting.
Oaklands is a substantial, beautifully positioned family home of quality construction completed by M S Oaks, a well-known local builder, and was constructed for himself, but sold shortly before completion to the current owners in the late 1970s. The property is of traditional brick under a tiled roof. There is a self-contained annexe which currently has planning to be used as additional garaging, but could, subject to the normal planning consents being reapplied for, be converted back into an annexe if required.
The current owners have looked after the property and continued to carry out considerable improvement works including a major refurbishment, which took place during 2011, this included the installation of high quality alloy windows completed to a marine specification with high quality front entrance door, upgrading of the boiler, refurbishment of the swimming pool with new paved surround and a new pump, complete redecoration including upgrading of bathrooms and Poggen Pohl designed kitchen together with complete redecoration.
The spacious interior enjoys bright and sunny rooms with a delightful garden room leading off the kitchen overlooking the neat and well-kept gardens and grounds. We draw your attention to the floor plans for a full explanation as to how the accommodation is arranged. The property is heated via a mains gas heating system, which also heats the swimming pool during the summer months.
The property is approached via a sweeping driveway that leads via the front of the property and around to the attached double garage and workshop with twin doors and personal door leading to an inner hall way. In addition, the former self-contained annexe, which was occupied as such for 14 years, has been converted including planning back to additional garaging, but could easily be converted back again to an annexe, subject to the necessary planning consents being obtained again. The wide front lawns feature a wealth of mature shrubberies and ornamental trees under planted with bulbs. The brick weave drive way between the garages is drained for vehicle washing and there is high mature hedging giving privacy and seclusion. The formal gardens at the rear of the house lead away from paved terraces onto extensive well-kept lawns with shaped shrubberies, ornamental pond and mature hedging and trees.
The swimming pool complex is behind the garaging and features covered seating areas trapping the sun, swimming pool with paved surround and covered barbecue area and enjoying views out over the garden. The gardens and grounds in all extend to about 1.8 acres.
