About this property

  • Culverden Glen is a substantial portion of this very handsome and striking Edwardian house comfortably set back from this well thought residential road.

    The light, spacious accommodation is well-balanced and set across three floors; four double bedrooms, together with the recently refurbished, highly stylish, family bathroom and separate shower room form the first and second floors; particular attention should be paid to the impressive, dual aspect principal bedroom with its large bay window and feature period fireplace.

    The ground floor enjoys very generous, flexible reception space, with informal and formal entertaining on offer, comprising a wonderful, sizeable, drawing room with a highly attractive, open feature fireplace with marble surround and granite hearth and a large bay window to the front of the house, which also opens onto a formal dining room.

    The handmade bespoke David Haugh kitchen, features a vaulted ceiling, an Aga and eye-catching silestone work surfaces and a matching bespoke breakfast table. French doors provide a pretty outlook, plenty of natural light and direct access onto the garden. The notable addition of the adjoining open-plan family room, with the dual aspect Bi-fold doors and vaulted Lantern style glass roof, provides a wonderful, comfortable day-to-day spot to relax and enjoy family life, but is also an ideal for large scale entertaining and enjoyment of the garden beyond, bringing the outside, inside. The ground floor also benefits from a useful utility room and a separate downstairs w/c.

    The house benefits from an established and well-screened, lawned garden to the rear.

    Outside - Culverden Glen is set back from the road, approached via double wrought iron gates leading to a large gravel driveway, with a raised front garden providing much privacy. Double gates to the side of the property give access to a detached garage with up and over electric door.
