    About this property

    • Woodpeckers is a modern detached family home, set in an exclusive private close next to open countryside, with just three other individually-styled properties. The house was built in 2003 by Millwood Homes in an attractive traditional style with brick, part tile-hung/part timbered elevations. The accommodation is arranged over two floors and extends to over 2,100 square feet; the layout on the ground floor being particularly well thought-out with an excellent flow between the main living spaces. Features of note include neutral decor, high ceilings with decorative coving, timber-framed double glazed windows, wooden internal doors and architraves, and an integral sound system in the reception rooms, kitchen and master suite.

      The full extent of the house can be seen on the floor plan that follows. Particular points of note include the welcoming entrance hall which is central to the ground floor accommodation, and which features an elegant central staircase rising to the first floor. Part-glazed double doors open from the hall to the large, dual-aspect sitting room which has French doors opening to the terrace and garden, and features an attractive inglenook-style brick fireplace with iron canopy and fire basket.

      The kitchen is fitted with a range of birch-fronted units with Corian worktops, and a number of integrated appliances including a Neff double oven and warming tray, 5-ring gas hob with extractor over, fridge/freezer and dishwasher; it is served by a useful utility room and has a door opening to the adjacent dining room. A study and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

      There are five bedrooms on the first floor lying off the galleried landing, all bar one with built-in storage cupboards. The master bedroom has a generous en suite bathroom; bedroom 2 also benefits from an en suite shower room. The remaining bedrooms are served by a family bathroom with suite including a bath and separate shower cubicle.

      Outside
      Woodpeckers is fronted by an area of lawn with a paved pathway leading to the front door; to the northern side of the house is a private driveway ahead of the detached double garage, which has an electrically-operated up and over door and a boarded eaves storage area.

      The rear garden lies predominantly to the east of the house and is largely laid to lawn, edged by shrub borders, enclosed by fencing and with a period-style greenhouse and timber shed located behind the garage. An Indian sandstone terrace extends across the rear of the house and around to the southern side, where it forms a sunny seating area ideal for dining al fresco.

    I think this is a really well thought out and designed home with great space and flow, and what makes it special is its location, set as one of only four properties in this small private close.
