Why buy this home?
Offered for sale for the first time since being built by the current owners in 1983, this impressive property sits on a secluded, private plot and is self-sufficient.
With an understated entrance, it is easy to drive right passed the electric gates that lead to this property. However, once you start driving down the private lane, the grandeur of the plot becomes immediately apparent. The total of approximately 3 acres is divided into an extremely generous front 'garden', the house itself and a side field/paddock.
The front 'garden' sits to the west of the private lane. It is sheltered from the road from tall trees and could be utilised in a multitude of ways, but savvy property developers will look at this space as the ideal place to build three/four executive homes (stpp.). There is a parking bay for four cars before you approach the main house which also has a gate into the front 'garden'. Just before the house is small wooded area which acts as a further sound barrier and emphasises the rural setting of this home.
The front of the house can be entered through a glass porch, or the you could use the rear entrance which takes you into a small hallway to remove shoes before entering the kitchen/diner. Due to its modern layout, the kitchen/diner is inevitably where you would spend most of your time when living at Roslyn. Perfect for budding chefs and bakers, the kitchen area has ample worktop space and an impressive Rangemaster cooker. A breakfast bar separates the dining area which is the perfect place for an informal table where you can catch up over a cup of tea after a long walk around the surrounding countryside.
Off one side of the dining area is a large conservatory; the perfect place to spend summer evenings. Larger than most living rooms, it can easily fit enough furniture to house the whole family and the tiled floor is sure to be a hit with furry friends. To the other side of the kitchen's dining area is the formal dining room. Due to the double doors that open up, the cook of the family can still feel involved with guests whilst they are sat at the dining table. Off the dining room is the drawing room which provides a formal space to retire to after dinner to continue the conversation or have a nightcap. Sliding doors open up to a patio area which is separated to the front 'garden' by the wooded area, creating a private, scenic seating area.
Thanks to the drawing room, the living room can be a private space for the owners to relax. Opposite the living room is a study, and downstairs is completed by a WC with under stairs storage.
Upstairs, the master bedroom rightly commands one side of the home and benefits from the sloped roofline creating a naturally cosy space. There is ample space for storage as shown by the currant owners having three double wardrobes, two chest of drawers and a dressing table. The five-piece ensuite includes a shower cubicle and proper jacuzzi bath which adds a little luxury to this impressive space.
The second bedroom is at the opposite end of the house, providing privacy for an older child or guests. They also benefit from stunning views over the fields to the east, as well as fitted wardrobes. Both bedroom three and four are further double, both with their own unique views of the surrounding greenery. These bedrooms are serviced by the family bathroom with also has a jacuzzi bath.
Next to the house is a further field/paddock which has a large kennel block from when the owners used to breed dogs. These could easily be converted to stables if you are looking for an equestrian property or could be developed into further outbuildings. Again, this field has the potential to house further residential accommodation (stpp).
This wonderful home is not on mains electricity or gas, although it does have the ability to connect to mains electricity if you'd prefer. The current owners love being self-sufficient and explain that their solar panels power the house. Located in a block next to the house, there is a back-up generator should the battery levels drop to lower than 40% in the winter months. The gas supply is provided by an LPG tank.
