Please quote Ref AH0137. At Adam Halliwell Powered by eXp, I am proud to be instructed to sell this gem of a home. Lovingly cared for, designed and extended twice by the current owners, this home offers deceptive accommodation, not entirely obvious from the front. The approach to the property is via a landscaped frontage with shingle for parking, though still retaining lawn (further parking here if required by extension). The apparent garage is now an efficiently designed store room to facilitate the kitchen/diner extension in the rear. Enough space in here for shelving, bikes and garden items.
The composite security entrance door is tucked under the porch and takes you into the hallway. Stairs rise to the first floor with store cupboard underneath. Through to the inner area which takes you into the front to back lounge. This room is east-west with the rear facing west. Mornings in the front, evening in the back. "West is best" is often said. This room can be set out as two areas, living at the front and sun room/music room to the rear. The wood burner in here sets you up for an enjoyable evening in the winter. In an age of rising energy prices, you can't beat a wood burner for heat and atmosphere on those cold winter nights.
There is a useful utility room and downstairs cloakroom off the inner hall. Utility rooms are small but useful rooms to hideaway those muddy boots and the washing that are part of everyday life in the country.
The kitchen/diner has double doors on to the decking and garden and has a seating area at this end. The other end of the kitchen is fully fitted with a set of high gloss, high quality kitchen units with composite worktops. Beautiful plinth lights compliment the spotlights in the vaulted ceiling. This room fills with light. Not enough that the door face west, with the skylights facing upwards its a very cheerful room and the heart of the home. It leads out to the garden, first by a decked area and then onto the lawn. Even with the extension a side access is still retained.
Up to the first floor. This floor remains almost untouched, such is the excellent design to take another set of stairs to the top floor. Here a four piece bathroom is provided with bath and separate shower cubicle. Two generous doubles here, including the old master, and a 4th bedroom that will take a single bed but most likely used nowadays as an office or workroom.
Up the feature staircase to the top floor, with another roof light here flooding light into the 1st floor landing and down to the hallway below. This room is a real haven for the occupants of this property. Firstly the large window has views over gardens and to the churchyard and beyond. Watch the sunset from here in the evening as it streams through this window. The room itself is generously sized. The eves to the front of the property have been cleverly incorporated to be wall to wall storage and hanging. The real star though of this floor is the en-suite. Too often we see fully white suites with chrome fittings as the configuration, when what many actually want is individual style. This en-suite provides just that. With its contrasting black-white-blue style it's contemporary with a twist of traditional, just perfect.
The only way you can appreciate this stunning home is to come and have a look. I am sorry to say though that I am only selling one these, make sure it’s yours.
