Why buy this home?
The saying 'never judge a book by its cover' couldn't be more accurate with this home. Looking at it from the front, you wouldn't believe it has so much space. This heavily extended home has everything that a family would need including two reception rooms, a beautiful kitchen/breakfast room, an out of this world four-piece bathroom and three double bedrooms.
All of the downstairs accommodation is accessed from the entrance hall which has beautiful, solid oak Parquet flooring. There is a large space under the stairs which is currently being used for storage but would make a clever office area, should one be needed.
The living room is accessed through a set of double doors, and it is a superb size. The Parquet flooring from the entrance hall continues into this room too and there is a window and a set of patio doors that lead out on to the rear garden. The size of the living room means that you can set the furniture out however you like and there will be ample room for all the family to be together and not feel cramped. This room is the perfect space to relax after a long day.
Across the hall from the living room is the dining room which has a feature fireplace and a bow window. The window adds light and character to the home. There is so much space, including room to fit an eight-seater dining table, which is great if hosting or simply for family meals. There is additional space for a bookcase and display cabinets for the items that aren't in daily use and as with the living room, it feels far from claustrophobic.
An incredible kitchen/breakfast room which was once the garage has created more floorspace downstairs and transformed the home into a larger, family friendly space. Quartz work surfaces and Neff fitted appliances, including a double oven and an induction hob, mean it is a dream for someone who loves cooking. Plenty of storage units and lots of worktop space allow more than one person to be working in the kitchen without being on top of each other and the island doubles up as a breakfast bar for quick, easy meals if you didn't want to use the dining room. There is space for an American style fridge/freezer and a dishwasher and dual aspect windows, two skylights and a door to the rear garden flood the room with light.
The utility room has space for both your washing machine and tumble dryer, and there is a work surface over them. There is an eye level storage unit for cleaning products and a window ensures that there won't be any condensation if you are drying clothes.
There is a W/C right next to the front door which is ideal if you have been out all day or have had a long journey in the car. It consists of a toilet and a wash hand basin with a mosaic style tiled splash back and it has a window for ventilation.
A south facing, landscaped rear garden with a Mediterranean feel is a sun lover's dream and is a wonderful space for entertaining. There are two seating areas, one of which is elevated and perfect for al-fresco dining and the other provides a shaded alternative. Contemporary lights on the ground allow the party to continue when the sun has gone down and mature, raised beds, a large shed and a discreet storage area finish the garden perfectly.
Upstairs there are three tastefully decorated double bedrooms and a marvelous family bathroom. If you needed four bedrooms, then the size of the rooms would allow the master to be split into two single bedrooms and the second bedroom would become the main room. As it stands, the largest room has dual aspect windows, engineered wooden flooring, a super king size bed with bedside tables and a large wardrobe. The second bedroom is also a fantastic size which would take a king size bed and all of the furniture a bedroom needs. Two windows face the front, and the airing cupboard is in this room. The third bedroom which also has engineered wooden flooring is currently being used as an office but would easily take a double bed. As the smaller of the bedrooms are both doubles, there should be no arguments when deciding who gets which room!
The spacious bathroom is simply breathtaking. It has been refitted to a stunning standard with a four-piece suite including an oval bathtub, a walk-in shower, his and hers sinks inset in a stone worktop and a floating toilet. Matte black fittings, marble tiles on the walls and non-slip tiles on the floor finish the bathroom beautifully and there is a shutter over the window. Unwinding in here with make you feel like you are on a luxurious holiday and you will have to pinch yourself to remind you that it is yours.
At the front of the home there is paved parking for up to three cars and an electric charging point.
