    About this property

    • Built by the current owners, Enfield House draws its influence from the surrounding properties and has been carefully designed to sit comfortably within the landscape. The front elevation is very traditional with a central porch and symmetrical windows. At the rear the projecting wing has been specifically designed and partly clad in timber to look as if it is a later extension to the principal house.

      The owners have incorporated Rako lighting smart technology into the property which uses an interconnected series of lights and intuitive controls that regulate everything from the intensity of each individual light to its' colour and which light is turned on at the right time to enhance ambience and increase security. The property has Sonos multi-room with audio ceiling speakers throughout the ground floor and in the three bedroom suites. There is Broadband with wireless access points around the house. The property has Cat 6 wiring throughout to ensure the fast transfer of data.

      A substantial timber porch frames the front door which opens into a generous entrance hall with staircase leading to the first floor. The heart of the home is the generously sized stylish kitchen/breakfast room which opens to the sitting/dining room. The kitchen/breakfast room has a vaulted ceiling and is beautifully fitted with a range of cabinets and a substantial island unit. The sitting/dining room has plenty of space for a table and chairs and seating to accommodate the many needs of family life. Floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall glazing with remote controlled blinds allows the light to flood in and affords wonderful views across the garden and beyond. Just off the kitchen/breakfast room is a useful utility and cloakroom.

      A door leads into the double garage which is currently set up as a gym. At the other end of the house is a very comfortable snug with fireplace housing a wood burning stove and is the perfect place to relax on colder days.

      The bedroom accommodation is set out over the first and second floors. The staircase from the entrance hall leads to the principal bedroom suite and two bedrooms and family bathroom. On the second floor is another bedroom suite with dressing room. A spiral staircase from the kitchen/breakfast room leads to a third bedroom suite.

      To the front of the house is ample parking for several cars. The gardens are simply laid out and present a wonderful opportunity for the next owners to create the garden of their dreams with views across the adjoining countryside.

    I love the thoughtful design of Enfield House which allows light to flood in. A true modern classic.
