Freshen up in the cloakroom to the left, fitted with wash basin and WC and tiled to the lower portion of the walls in sandy tones.
Stash your coat and shoes in the deep cupboard beneath the staircase to the left, where there is ample room for a hoover and other cleaning essentials.
Across the hall, step through into the lavishly-sized, light-filled lounge, where windows to the front flow through to the dining room opening out to the rear, delivering illumination into every corner of the room.
Carpeted in latte tones, there is plenty of room for a large sofa and armchair upon which to settle down and snuggle up. On a winter’s evening, feel the warmth from the electric fire with glowing embers, set within an ornate fireplace surround.
Bifold doors open to the rear, creating a free-flowing entertaining space between the lounge and the snug. Overlooking the garden, step outside through the glazed door and soak up the sunshine and stunning views out over the sizeable, manicured garden and to Holcombe Hill beyond. A versatile space, the snug has also served as a dining room, and for families, it could also be a convenient playroom for children – there is even a hatch to the kitchen next door, allowing you to keep an eye on the kids and summon them when dinner is served. Why not consider removing this wall and extending to the rear to create a modern open-plan family kitchen-garden room? The ultimate way in which to celebrate your secluded spot and those serene views out over the countryside.
Accessed directly ahead from the entrance hall, slip through into the kitchen, where Karndean coats the floor for a practical and attractive surface. A sociable family hub, soak up views out over Holcombe Hill through the broad window above the sink ahead.
Solid wood cabinetry offers ample storage for all your pots, pans and plates in a classic, timeless fashion. Spacious and bright, light serenades the space from several windows, framing verdant views out to the emerald lawn and countryside beyond. Slip through into the utility room, where large windows once more capture the views, this time to the lush side garden where mature hedging provides privacy and shelter. Plenty of space in here for white goods including a washing machine, dryer and freestanding fridge and freezer. Flow through from here into the spacious double garage.
From the utility room there is also access outside to a side passage and side lawn. Why not consider maximising the potential of your garage (potentially converting it into an additional reception room) by extending the driveway to run along the side of the home, creating extra parking? With an abundance of lawn to the rear, you’ll retain your outdoor paradise.
When slumber calls, ascend the stairs, turning left on the landing into the first of five sumptuously sized double bedrooms.
Currently serving as a multi-functional games room, with built-in furniture creating an office area with ample shelving and storage to one corner; sense the scope here to develop your dream master suite replete with ensuite and dressing area. Light and airy, broad windows to two sides capture views out over the quiet close to the front and the country views over fields to the side.
Across from the top of the stairs, peacefully set with far reaching views out over the garden and countryside towards Holcombe Hill, a fourth double bedroom is nestled. Totally private and not overlooked, sense the serenity and seclusion of this home. Currently furnished with a single bed and office desk, this could also serve as a work from home study.
Next door and also soaking up heavenly views over the rolling countryside in the direction of Holcombe Hill is a third double bedroom, neutrally decorated and with laminate flooring underfoot. An array of fitted furniture emphasises the spaciousness of the room, providing ample storage for all your clothing.
A further serenely styled bedroom is located to the rear of the home, furnished with fitted wardrobes and a dressing table – and most importantly, those inimitable countryside views, stretching out to the distant hills.
Refresh and relax in the family bathroom, luxuriously tiled in marbled salmon tones. Contemporary spotlighting allows for optimum illumination as you soak, shower and scrub, with a chrome heated radiator to warm your fluffy towel.

Step outside from the snug and take a stroll about the extensive garden at Number 8. Directly outside, a large patio is the perfect place for barbecues with family and friends, beyond which the striped, manicured and glossy green lawn stretches back, merging with the countryside beyond.
Flat, square, substantial and safe, this fenced garden provides plenty of space for children and pets to frolic freely throughout the summertime, visible from the kitchen and snug.
Sip on an after-work gin and tonic, watching the kaleidoscope of sunset colours in the west across the open fields over which the birds fly in search of roosting grounds, heralding the end of the day with their evensong.
Summertime views are extra special with colourful borders of lush shrubbery, flowers in bloom and the surrounding green fields and trees. In the wintertime, spectacular views of Holcombe Hill and Greenmount Golf Club present themselves from the garden and also indoor spaces of the home.
Follow the sun all day long; in such a spacious garden there is the balance of sun and shade throughout the day. Stash the mower in the rear garden shed, in this low maintenance, high reward garden.
