About this property

  • The property represents a superb and extremely comfortable, energy efficient modern family home designed with 21st century living in mind.

    The property boasts many eco-friendly credentials and has been carefully designed with excellent attention to detail evident throughout. An air source heat pump supplies underfloor heating/hot water upstairs and downstairs, increasing the efficiency of this innovative property.

    Accessed via a private no through road, Timbers is set behind electric wooden gates with a gravelled driveway leading to a large turning circle at the front of the house offering parking for multiple cars.

    Upon entering the house via double oak doors, the spacious and light entrance hall leads into an open plan living/dining room which in turn leads to a striking, vaulted drawing room with exposed timbers and a central wood burning stove. The ground floor in its entirety is ideal for entertaining with French doors from all rooms leading out onto the terrace, while it is equally well arranged for family living.

    The kitchen, with separate utility/ boot room, has solid oak units with black granite work tops and integrated appliances. There is a central island and breakfast bar with rising extractor fan and a gas and electric hob.

    A German, precision-engineered staircase rises to the first floor comprising four excellent bedrooms each with en-suite shower rooms with the master en-suite also featuring a free-standing bath. Furthermore, in addition to extensive wardrobe space, a hidden door gives access to a mezzanine study area which overlooks the vaulted sitting room.

    The grounds extend to circa 1.3 acres and are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees, flowering borders and shrubs. The garden backs onto woodland to the rear and has laurel hedging to the front affording total privacy.

    There is an integral double garage and workshop/plant room which can also be accessed via the main house via the utility room.
