This highly individual home has been beautifully restored to showcase the character of the original building which sits on Home Farm, a carefully converted community of 13 fantastic homes.
Oak floors, exposed brickwork and beams sit beautifully alongside a contemporary kitchen and modern bathrooms making it a family`s dream.
Approached down a shared drive, past its allocated parking space, you reach the property sat neatly to the right, its red brick and dark wooden exterior giving a nod to its period farm heritage.
A wooden door opens into an entrance hall, the warmth of its English oak flooring contrasting beautifully with the light crisply painted walls.
First on your right is the kitchen with its distinctive contemporary design. It is a visual delight with exposed brick walls framing the glossy wooden effect units that wrap around the room. With all the high end integrated appliances that you would expect from a house of this quality including a Bosch oven, microwave, gas hob and fridge/freezer, it is a cook`s dream.
In the living/dining room next door, the dimensions cleverly define a dining and seating area with ample space for a deep sofa and a large dining table and chairs. A wood burner stove at the far side adds warmth in the colder months while French doors lead straight out onto the garden`s private terrace to extend the living space in the summer.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor, there are three bedrooms, two doubles, one of which has a wet room en-suite.
Outside to the rear its garden is laid mainly to lawn with high perimeter hedging providing privacy and a safely contained sanctuary for pets and children. A paved terrace sits at the back of the house giving plenty of space for alfresco dining while a back gate leads your visitors in from their parking area.
Brimming with character this unique home enjoys open countryside on its doorstep. It is also well placed for commuters being only a mile from the local mainline stations with excellent rail links to central London. A must see!
