About this property

  • Fairfield, 93 Lache Lane is an attractive period house dating from the mid-1930s. The property has been extended by the current owner and the accommodation is well presented and balanced.

    The front door opens into a spacious reception hallway which has the original parquet floor, stairs leading up to the first floor and an understairs cupboard. To the right of the hallway is a study, again with parquet floor and an original fireplace. This is a very bright room with a dual aspect. The sitting room is connected to the open-plan dining area through folding glass doors and provides the ability to really increase the entertaining space.

    The house has been extended at the rear to provide a fantastic open-plan kitchen/family/dining area. Much of the original character of the house has been retained with a very pretty seating area with fireplace, log burner and servants' bell board above the doorway. The kitchen has a good range of wall and base units, Rangemaster cooker, integrated dishwasher and central breakfast island with bookshelves and storage drawers. The dining/seating area has French doors leading out to the patio and garden. The entire area is very bright and it is a wonderful, sociable space with particularly lovely views of the garden.

    To the right of the dining area is access through to the self-contained accommodation which provides a sitting room with French doors out to the garden and a doorway leading through to a hallway off which is a shower room and a wc. A spiral staircase leads up to a large room, currently a bedroom but could be used as a hobby room or study. This part of the house is completely self-contained and would be ideal for a dependent relative. To the rear of the kitchen seating area is a walk-in pantry and access to the utility room off which there is a wet room with wc. There is access to the side of the house from the utility room.

    On the first floor is the principal bedroom with en suite wc and wash basin. There are three further guest bedrooms (one with en suite wc and basin) and a separate family bathroom.

    To the front of the house is a gravelled driveway with parking for a number of cars. To the rear is a beautiful south facing garden which is likely to be one of the largest in the immediate area. Mainly laid to lawn the garden is a fantastic area for childrens games or social events. With mature borders and shrubs and fruit trees, colour and contrast is guaranteed all year round.

The garden at this property is absolutely fantastic; I was really struck by how magical it would be for children to have such a large but totally secure area outside to run around in. The house itself offers tremendous space for a young family to grow and there is the bonus of some completely self-contained ancillary accommodation.
