SOLD BY FLYING FISH PROPERTIES This fabulous house, lovingly owned by the same family for nearly three decades, offers spacious and flexible accommodation, surrounded by beautiful open countryside.
A driveway sweeps upwards, past a detached garage, through a canopy of trees with areas of lawn and a variety of mature greenery screening and surrounding the property.
The house offers exceptional family friendly living with beautiful gardens and open farmland views to the rear. However, it also offers you the best of both worlds as it has first-class schooling and excellent transport links on its doorstep, making it the perfect family home.
A large gabled porch welcomes you in, with plenty of space for coats and shoes, and a useful guest cloakroom to the side.
The wide entrance hallway has living rooms running of it at every angle, offering a spacious layout that is ideal for family life.
To the left is the large home office, brightened by its double aspect windows, with fitted bespoke cabinetry for storage.
At the rear the spacious living room's honey toned parquet floor is dappled in sunlight from its windows and French doors, the rear ones framing the lush rear garden. An open fire with brick surround and tiled hearth adds warmth and character in the colder months. Internal doors opening into the dining room can lie open giving you plenty of entertaining space.
Next door the dining room, conveniently placed next to the kitchen, has its own set of French doors opening onto the garden terrace, bringing views of the garden in.
The kitchen/breakfast room is substantial and beautiful with room for a sofa as well as a large table and chairs. A raised breakfast bar, with space for up to four bar stools, lets you chat to family and friends as you prepare dinner. There is an expanse of bespoke wooden cabinetry, topped with contrasting granite work surfaces, that house integrated appliances such as the Neff double ovens and Bosh dishwasher. It is a wonderfully bright room with large double aspect windows and a side aspect door that gives garden and driveway access.
Off the kitchen is a separate utility room with another sink for muddy boots and paws and beyond, another cloakroom.
The family room at the rear provides ample space for large sofas to curl up in at the end of a long day.
Returning to the hallway the carpeted stairs take you up to a landing which has access into the loft and an airing cupboard with shelving for linen.
The tranquil master bedroom suite to the far right has glorious garden views to the rear, a separate dressing room with fitted wardrobes and access into its en-suite bathroom at the front.
There are four further bedrooms, all of which have fitted wardrobes, and all with large windows delivering leafy green views.
A family bathroom with a bath with back lit panelling and a separate shower cubicle and a further shower room complete the floor.
The garden is a visual delight with open farmland to the rear delivering picturesque unobstructed views. At the back of the house are paved terraces, perfect for alfresco dining and relaxing in the southerly sun. The lawns are manicured and there is a beautiful mix of fruit trees, mature stocked beds and perimeter hedging and shrubbery. A wooden summer house sits next to an above ground swimming pool with decked platform and there is a wooden shed for garden equipment. The garden is fully enclosed, secluded and secure with perimeter high mature hedging and shrubs and close boarded fencing, making it ideal for kids and pets.
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!
