About this property

  • Built in 2008 to exacting standards, 12A Strathearn Road is a contemporary spacious family home, full of natural light and high quality fixtures and fittings.

    Entering the property through the front door, a light and spacious hall sets the tone for the rest of the property. The open plan hall connects to the main reception rooms on the ground floor. To the right of the hall, a modern kitchen features two French doors to the front of the property and fitted base units with integrated NEFF appliances. An island houses further cupboard space, a double sink, and a connected breakfast table. The kitchen flows into an adjoining breakfast area, with triple aspect windows and patio door overlooking the side and rear garden. A light day room completes the open plan space and provides a comfortable seating area.

    From the hall, a study, drawing room, bedroom and shower room are all accessed. To the left of the hall, a dining area sits underneath a double height ceiling with open first floor balcony. Six Velux skylights provide natural light. Separated from the dining area is a hall with utility area, shower room and access to the double garage.

    The main staircase leads from the hall to the open plan first floor landing. To the right, at the end of the landing is the master suite, featuring a large bedroom overlooking the front of the property, a walk in dressing room, and en suite bathroom with bath tub, walk in shower and double basins.
    A large bathroom adjacent to the master bedroom is accessed from the landing, and features a walk in shower, WC, and steps up to a sunken Jacuzzi bath housed under a double height turret roof.
    Three further double bedrooms are accessed from the landing, all with fitted wardrobes and one with an en suite shower room. Access to the floored loft is through a hatch with Ramsay ladder from the landing.

    The landing leads to a balcony area, overlooking the dining space, with added quirky features including two semi-transparent glass chessboards, integrated into the floor. The balcony is secured by a glass partition which allows natural light to filter below. A games room is accessed from the balcony area. The room is deceptively spacious, housing both a 3/4 snooker table and TV area with projector screen. A rear staircase leads down to a side door and back on to the utility area and garage. This area is designed for easy conversion to an annexe if desired.

    Outside
    A paved driveway leads from Strathearn Road, past number 12, and onto a paved area for parking in addition to the double garage. A water feature and ornamental garden sit in front of the main door and provide a peaceful oasis.

    To the right of the property is a decked seating area with access to the breakfast room. The private rear garden then opens up and features a Koi pond with bridge, fully insulated summer house with electrics, two stores and mezzanine snug area. Following the fence line, a range of mature trees and hedges provide privacy to the area. To the left of the property is a bin store, rear door, garden shed, and hot tub.
