    About this property

    • The Flower House is an immaculately presented and well-proportioned detached family house. Individually designed and built in 2010, the current owners were closely involved with its final specification and their meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout the property.

      A particular feature is the double height vaulted kitchen combined in an open plan layout with a spacious family/living area. The impressive 18-paned window looks out onto the secluded back garden and floods this versatile space with natural light.

      The kitchen is fitted with integrated Siemens appliances including two dishwashers, three ovens including a steamer, five ring induction hob, three warming drawers, built-in coffee machine and an Amana American-style fridge/freezer.

      The property has been thoughtfully configured and offers a mix of reception rooms on the ground floor opening off the central reception hall. Glazed double doors lead into a bright, triple aspect drawing room. The dining room has French doors opening onto the expansive stone terrace and garden beyond, and the third reception room, again accessed by glazed double doors, is currently configured as a cinema room.

      The main staircase leads from the centre of the reception hall in a single flight to a centrally located landing off which four bedrooms and the family bathroom are situated. The master suite comprises a bedroom with Juliette balcony, an en suite shower room and a light and airy dressing room with extensive built in cupboards and striking full height bay windows. Originally designed as a sixth bedroom this room retains its own doorway off the landing, currently with wardrobes built across on the inside, and could be easily returned to its original purpose.

      There is Oak joinery throughout with matching bespoke oak wardrobes built into every bedroom, underfloor heating on both floors, an integrated sound system, water softener, heat recovery system and natural stone bathrooms all contribute to the quality of this property.

      The integrated triple garage provides alternative access to the main house via the utility room. Above this, but accessed from within the main house via its own staircase from the kitchen/family room, is a further bedroom with an adjacent shower room, creating a potential guest suite, quite separate from the family accommodation.

      The Flower House is set well back from the road with a private driveway. Solid wooden electric gates open onto a large paved courtyard providing ample parking space, with open access to the rear garden to both sides. A wide stone terrace runs across the rear of the house, continuing around the left hand side to the utility room and rear garage door. The garden is largely laid to lawn with evergreen perimeter trees providing shelter and privacy. The plot extends to about 0.58 acres in total.
