About this property

  • Netherwood is an attractive New England style property dating from the 1950s which has been extended, remodelled and refurbished by the present owners. The versatile accommodation is arranged so the principal reception rooms have views over the delightful sweeping gardens to the front. Features include a bespoke kitchen by Woodwork, modern bathroom suites with digital showers. Within the grounds is a swimming pool and garaging, and as a whole, the plot amounts to about 2 acres, providing a high degree of privacy.

    The principal reception rooms provide versatile entertaining areas and comprise a sitting room with parquet flooring and direct access to the front decking, a family room also with direct access to the front and a part vaulted ceiling. The conservatory has a wonderful outlook over and direct access to the gardens.

    The impressive kitchen/dining room is fitted with a bespoke range of oak lined wall and base cupboards by Woodwork with a matching island unit providing a breakfast bar and integral appliances by Neff. The room is double aspect with a square bay window to the front and attractive window seating together with a sunken dining area.

    Adjoining the kitchen is a boot/utility room with extensive storage and space for appliances.

    A sweeping drive leads through the grounds and culminates by the house where the garages are located, both of which benefit from implemented planning permission to build a pitched roof. (16/01783/HOUSE).

    The gardens and grounds are a delightful feature with a variety of established trees and shrubs, together with undulating lawns. There is decking to the front of the property with paths leading to the rear where the swimming pool and pool house are located. In total, the area amounts to about 2 acres and provide a high degree of privacy.
