Drive through the oak-gated entrance and park up on the neatly-gravelled driveway, alongside which a lush lawned area, ribboned by a border of pretty planting, greets you. Parking here for both the family cars.
The warm oak of the portico entrance ahead complements the gates and front door, flanked by pruned topiary. Come inside…
Step into the entrance hall, where – continuing the theme – a solid oak staircase returns upwards immediately to the left; a handsome feature containing sizeable storage within.
OWNER QUOTE: “With the kitchen doors open, the first thing you see when you arrive home is the garden through the bi-folds.”
Karndean flooring underfoot, this entrance hall is a bright and welcoming space, with a handy guest WC ahead and to the left, with Porcelanosa fixtures and decorated in grey ceramic tiling.
Hungry for more? Ahead lies the heart of the home; the contemporary and comprehensively stocked kitchen-diner.
Light and cheerful courtesy of a constellation of inset spotlighting above, bi-fold doors span one wall of the kitchen straight ahead, capturing verdant views of the garden.
Above, an attractive roof lantern delivers yet more light into this sociable space. Karndean flooring glimmers underfoot, whilst to two walls an array of green-grey units offers plentiful storage, including a sliding cupboard and a handy corner unit with shelving for pans.
Appliances include two ovens, fitted centrally within the wall units, a washing machine, dishwasher and fridge-freezer.
Slice, dice and serve up sumptuous delights from the central island, which contains an additional salad sink in addition to the main sink beneath the window overlooking the garden. There is even a breakfast bar – ideal for casual brunches!
Topped in oak, this spacious central island also contains a disappearing electrical point, curved cupboards and drawers alongside vegetable baskets and an indulgent wine rack.
Gather around the dining table with the family for Sunday dinner. In the cooler months, a cosy log burner keeps this room extra toasty. In the summer, open the bi-fold doors onto the garden and enjoy alfresco feasting.
A true party house, open the bi-fold doors in the kitchen and the patio doors to the lounge in order to open the whole house up. Ideal for family gatherings and celebrations.
Next door, the sumptuous sitting room awaits.
Coated in soft grey carpet, this living room is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Cosy up on the sofa in the evenings, by the flickering flames of the log burner, sitting on its slate hearth within a stone surround.
A large, square bay window to the front draws light into the room, illuminating a desk and study area. A new addition, the original staircase once stood in place of the bay window…we prefer the view as it stands now. Perfectly private, relax in the window with a book, hidden from view by the screen of hedging to the front.
In the summer time, slip out through the French doors and onto the patio outside. What could be better?
Take the handsome, returning oak staircase up to the first floor, before emerging onto a large landing.
Ahead, illuminated by two large windows, this wide space could be ideal for shelving to create a library/reading area should you desire. There is also ample space to add an extra set of stairs, should you wish to convert the loft.
Along a corridor to the left discover the family bathroom. Fitted with Porcelanosa fixtures, this room of refreshment boasts a bath, floating walnut-finish sink, WC and – best of all – a decadently sized walk-in shower.
Clad in stone-grey ceramic tiles, the tiling in the shower has a textured appeal, with a rainfall shower and hand-held shower attachment.
In addition to the vanity unit within the sink, a shelf above offers extra space for your lotions and potions.
Continue along to the end of this corridor, where a private and spacious double bedroom awaits. A very similar size to the current master bedroom, this room has the added bonus of being tucked away to the furthest point of the house.
Returning to the landing, in the other direction, the master bedroom awaits, featuring attractive pendant lighting and an abundance of space for drawers, wardrobes and dressing table.
Next door, a third spacious double shares the first two bedroom’s verdant views of the rear garden.
Finally, a fourth cosy bedroom looks peacefully out towards the quiet Foley Road East. A spacious single or a snug double, this room could make an ideal nursery or study.
Accessible from both the kitchen and lounge, step out onto the patio, perfect for summer soirées and barbecues. Designed for pleasure and ease of use, relax on the patio as the kids kick a ball about on the lawn. Borders to the edges are on hand for seasonal planting or low maintenance shrubbery.
A handy shed is ideal for storing logs for the winter time. So peaceful and quiet, here at this home you are not overlooked, the hedges maintain your privacy and solitude.
Enjoy the sunshine from dawn ’til dusk; the sun rises to the left and travels around before setting on the right.
