This fabulous family home has been remodelled and redesigned to deliver a truly exquisite 21st Century home that delivers on every level.
Set back from the road behind mature hedging, a sweeping gravelled driveway takes you up to a mixed exterior of brick and red hung tiles, separated by square bay windows that delight in wonderful countryside views.
A neat enclosed porch welcomes you into the light filled interior, its beauty immediately apparent from an elegant neutral Farrow & Ball palette that is showcased throughout.
First on the right is the family room dappled in sun light from its square bay fronted window, perfect for cosy snug nights in.
Behind is the stunning kitchen/dining room whose large space is brightened by two sets of French windows that bring garden views in. Beautifully finished with a painted wooden Burnhill kitchen oozing quality and style, a substantial island with a double Belfast sink houses appliances and pan drawers under a mix of gleaming granite and warm oak work tops. Two integrated fridge/freezers sit smartly side by side in a tall housing unit whilst the wooden cupboard inlays contrast beautifully with their elegant painted exteriors. A stainless-steel extractor and open wooden shelving add to the bespoke design of the kitchen. Opposite there is plenty of room for a dining table and chairs while the spacious layout lets you chat to family and friends as you prepare the dinner.
Off the kitchen is a wide-open space linked seamlessly by the same quality wooden effect luxury vinyl flooring. With ample room for a home office there is also access into the garden, well equipped utility room and a front double bedroom which is perfect for guests as there is a smart modern shower room nearby.
Beyond and to the rear 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 a sliding glazed door to the side lets you extend your living space onto the garden terrace in the warmer months.
A turning staircase flooded with light from its landing window draws you up to the immaculate first floor rooms.
The master bedroom suite at the rear enjoys garden views, a walk-in dressing area with bespoke fitted wardrobes and a large en-suite bathroom.
There are three further immaculate bedrooms, two of which are large doubles, all with large windows, the front two of which enjoy breath-taking open countryside views.
Completing the floor is the family bathroom which is spacious, fitted with plenty of storage and has a shower over its bath.
The sunny south facing garden has been beautifully planted with a variety of plants and shrubbery dotted around its lawned area, with a pond and a rear screened area with greenhouse adding to its charm. Mature hedging and plants afford great privacy while its large paved terrace that sits outside the kitchen/dining room is perfect for summer entertaining.
This home certainly delights in delivering a luxury family lifestyle that you could move straight in and enjoy. It is also ideally located being a stone`s throw from easy access to the M25, fast rail connections to central London and first-class schools. A must see!
