This fantastic home sits on a peaceful cul-de-sac, nestled in the heart of its popular village location, with lush green woodland as its backdrop.
As it is elevated on a hill, its modest two storey appearance from the front conceals a further floor which opens directly onto its glorious gardens, framed by leafy views.
Arranged over three floors this superb family home has benefited from some redesigning by the current owners, but its flexible layout and position gives you the added opportunity to extend and remodel too.
With a smart exterior and impressive setting, the house is set back from the quiet cul-de-sac by a neat area of lawn, decorative pebbled beds, stocked flower beds and rose bushes.
A block brick driveway to the side fronts the double garage behind, while steps wind you down towards the entrance door.
The entrance hallway, with a useful shower room and a walk-in cupboard to keep the space clutter free, is bright and immaculate.
First on the left is the living room with dual aspect windows flooding the room with light. Neutral walls contrast beautifully with the wooden flooring and its sliding glazed doors to the rear open onto the glazed sit on balcony with unrestricted leafy views. There is also a gas effect wood burning stove, perfect for cosy nights in.
Part glazed folding doors to the side can lie open extending the space into the dining room, conveniently placed next to the kitchen, or remain closed, for an intimate dining experience.
The wonderful kitchen/breakfast room was installed by the current owners who have created a stylish culinary space which also enjoys the glorious garden views with a long breakfast bar at the rear. There are plenty of cupboards top and bottom, counter tops, space for a range oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, a sink that sits cleverly under the side aspect window and a stable door that gives access to the driveway. Red tiled splashbacks compliment the kitchen colour scheme and under counter and plinth lighting give it a contemporary feel.
Also accessed from the kitchen is the double garage to the side which has lighting, electricity, and plenty of space for additional appliances and storage.
Returning to the hallway, stairs lead you down to the lower ground floor and a wide hallway with garden access and open under stair storage space.
There are two large rooms either side of the hallway which are currently used as a music room and a home office/workshop, but they have also been used as bedrooms for teenage children. With glazed doors opening onto the terrace in one and proximity to an additional attached workshop in the other, there is plenty of opportunity to redefine and remodel the space, depending on your needs.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor, brightened by a front aspect window, the landing has an airing cupboard and ceiling access hatch with a drop-down ladder into the loft.
The principal bedroom is on the far right with glorious garden views, two sets of fitted wardrobes and a large en-suite bathroom.
There are three further bedrooms, two of which are generous doubles, all with fitted wardrobes and wonderful views.
Completing the floor is a family bathroom with a corner jacuzzi bath with a wall mounted shower attachment.
The beautiful rear garden is a green and peaceful oasis. It is tiered with a large, paved terrace, perfect for summer entertaining, with paved steps on both sides, flanked by well stocked flower beds, leading to a neat area of lawn. There is a further paved terrace and an array of stocked flower beds filled with a variety of flowers and plants. Further steps to the side lead down to the rear where there is a greenhouse. There is street access and access into the workshop under the garage. The garden offers privacy with tree top views and is beautifully presented making it perfect for entertaining in the warmer months.
With open countryside on its doorstep and being a stone's throw from easy access to the M25, fast rail connections to central London and first-class schools, it is the perfect home for families with professional needs. A must see!
