Imposing family home set in over 1.6 acres with golf course views
Approached through private gates, Laureldene was built in 2001 by the current owners to create a beautiful family home set over four floors. It sits within a 1.638 acre plot and has a beautiful landscaped garden which backs on to Effingham Golf Club.
The impressive entrance hall leads to all the main reception rooms and the tiled floor flows through to the beautiful bespoke kitchen/breakfast room, incorporating an L shaped
island with breakfast bar and a walk in pantry. There are a range of high quality appliances including five gas hobs and two electric circo ovens, Sub Zero fridge freezer, two sinks with quooker taps and waste disposals and Miele dishwasher. A particular feature of this room is the stylish glass fronted gas fire which connects through to the lovely light family room with
double doors to the outside. Open plan to the kitchen is the David Salisbury orangery with a cosy wood burning stove and double doors to the terrace and garden, perfect for summer
entertaining. The utility room houses the washing machine, separate dryer and a wine cooler. There is also a useful drying room.
The drawing room is double aspect with feature fireplace. The floor has fitted carpet with tiled surround and there are double doors to outside. The large study is generously sized with bespoke fitted cabinetry. A formal dining room and guest cloakroom completes the downstairs accommodation.
The lower ground floor provides the gym and indoor swimming pool with slide. Double doors also lead to outside steps up to the terrace.
There is also a cinema room with wooden sprung floor, equipped with projector and screen, changing facilities, shower room and plant room.
The first floor comprises five bedrooms suites, two with walk in
wardrobes. On the top floor is the master bedroom suite with
