Property Description

Approaching this stunning, completely renovated bespoke home from High Street Road, you're greeted by a large driveway framed with maturing shrubs on both sides. To the right, a very large newly built double garage with a motorised door stands ready. The expansive driveway offers parking for 10+ vehicles and includes a carport. The front of the home features a rendered bottom with a clad finish on top, giving a modern, bespoke feel, complemented by all-new double-glazed windows.

Stepping inside, the entrance hallway offers a direct line of sight through large floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors into the garden. The engineered oak flooring, which can be sanded three times, flows seamlessly from the entrance hall throughout the entire downstairs. A floor-to-ceiling radiator heats the entrance hall, leading to the downstairs WC on the left, equipped with a floating toilet and sink with a hidden cistern, as well as a heated towel rack. To the right, a snug/office space awaits, heated by a radiator. Continuing past the stairs through the entrance hall, you enter the open-plan kitchen, featuring a full-height feature window that floods the home with natural light.

The Leicht brand kitchen, to the right of this space, boasts a vaulted ceiling with two Velux windows, centered around a large island with two integrated Siemens dishwashers, an induction hob with extractor fan, Quooker tap, and three Siemens ovens with an integrated fridge freezer and additional storage. The open-plan living and dining area, bathed in natural light and featuring the same engineered oak flooring, includes a wood burner, a mini bar area with a built-in drinks fridge, and a tap providing sparkling and still water, as well as an air conditioning unit. Large floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors overlook the private garden adorned with mature trees.

Behind the kitchen, a large walk-in utility room with an integrated fridge and freezer houses the oil boiler and Toucan water softener. This space also provides access to the carport, which could be converted into a downstairs bedroom, subject to planning.

Walking upstairs, you're welcomed by a space flooded with natural light from the full-length feature window, illuminating the landing area. This grand ascent leads to four double bedrooms (two with en-suites), an upstairs laundry room, and the family bathroom. The family bathroom, beautifully finished, features a walk-in shower, large bath, and floating sink and toilet with hidden cistern. The fourth bedroom overlooks the driveway and is illuminated by the void with its feature windows. The large laundry room with washer and dryer could easily be made into a fifth large double bedroom, continuing to the third bedroom. The principal bedroom, overlooking the garden, is a spacious double with air conditioning, a large walk-in dressing room, and an en-suite with a walk-in shower. The second bedroom, also overlooking the garden, featuring a wall painted in the style of Venetian plaster and an en-suite.

The garden offers a peaceful retreat with a large patio that steps up to a spacious turfed area, hosting mature trees and a large fire pit. A shed fitted with electricity sits towards the end of the garden.
