Every inch of this fantastic home has been beautifully refurbished inside and out transforming it from a modest 1970s house into an exceptional contemporary 21st Century home.
The crisp lines of its smart exterior of red brick, smooth painted render and stylish gun metal windows sit sympathetically amongst its neighbours on the quiet leafy private road.
A block brick driveway with parking for several cars leads you up to a canopied porch whose modern entrance door welcomes you into this wonderful detached family home. The ground floor is entered by a light and spacious reception hallway with a family friendly wall of open storage units to keep the area clutter free.
The entrance hallway is fresh and modern with glass balustrades topped with warm oak handrails rising upwards immediately showcasing the home`s contemporary, light filled interior.
First on the right is the family room, that can double as a home office, with its warm wooden flooring dappled in sun light form its large front aspect window.
At the rear is the impressive kitchen/dining room whose entire back wall of sliding glass doors beautifully frame the lush garden views and treetops beyond. The kitchen is fully equipped as you would expect from a house of this quality with contrasting oak and tiled flooring, sleek units and a feature statement stone wall. There are two sinks, one with a boiling hot water tap, and space for a large range oven, 60 bottle wine cooler, dishwasher and large American style fridge/freezer. Light bounces off the gleaming white worktops and there is plenty of space for a dining table and chairs while you can prepare the dinner as the children sit at the island doing their homework. A walk in pantry with an underfloor cooling storage space adds a further luxurious dimension to the kitchen which is a cook`s dream.
Off the kitchen is a separate spacious utility area with garden access, a smart modern shower room and a guest double bedroom.
Beyond the dining room is the bright living room with natural light flooding in through its large window, framing the leafy rear view. It is plenty big enough for large family sofas to relax in whilst warming yourself in front of the wood burning stove in the colder months.
A modern staircase flooded with light from its landing window draws you up to the immaculate first floor rooms.
The magnificent master bedroom suite delights in spectacular unspoilt far reaching views, over the weald, of the adjacent woodland and fields beyond. A contemporary, modern en-suite and bespoke walk in dressing room, both add to the feeling of luxury that the room certainly delivers on.
Completing the first floor are three further immaculate double bedrooms all with warm wooden effect flooring and large windows and a sumptuous tiled family bathroom with shower over the bath.
A further flight of stairs take you up to the second floor with a large useful storage room and spacious double bedroom, currently set up as a play room, with breath-taking open countryside views.
The landscaped garden has been beautifully planted and maintained with its sloping lawn drawing your eye down towards the summer house nestled to the rear and the woodland behind. Mature hedging, plants and shrubs afford great privacy while its impressively large stone terrace with its raised waterfall pond and outside kitchen with sink, perfect for entertaining, lets you extend your living area in the summer months.
This is a home that has been built to the highest specifications by the current owners to deliver a luxury family lifestyle that you could move straight in and enjoy.
