Sneak a peek through to the large, integral, double garage, with electric up and over door. With a large window to the side, planning permission has been granted to convert and expand this area, alongside the construction of a separate double garage, plans of which are available to view.
Across the inner hallway, glazed double doors open up to the heart of the home; the bountiful and bright open-plan kitchen-diner-family room where warmth emanates from the underfloor heating, creating a cosy and inviting atmosphere.
Hand painted, creamy cabinetry is topped with black granite worktops, housing an array of built-in Siemens appliances including four ovens, a microwave and steam oven, ground coffee maker, six-ring ceramic hob with retractable ‘expel air’ and American style fridge-freezer with plumbed water/ice dispenser. A kitchen where family life is simplified, retractable power sockets with USB inputs ensure your family remains connected, whilst a handy wine fridge, perfect for enjoying a glass of wine as you prepare dinner, is conveniently within easy reach of the central island, with its undermounted Belfast sink and grooved drainage. A handy utility room houses the washer, dryer, a second undermounted sink inset within the granite worktop, and offers access out to the garden via a stable door.
Dine casually at the breakfast bar or at a large dining table, soaking up views of the glorious, private garden beyond, framed by the bifolding doors which open to create a seamless flow between the indoors and out. Ideal for balmy summer days, where the wine flows and the barbecue sizzles. Step outside onto the expansive, elevated stone patio, where unbroken views extend over the garden and countryside beyond.
Along the patio a second set of bifold doors open to the sunny garden room, where a series of Velux windows frame blue sky views above, suffusing the space in light. Reconnecting via a static glass window and glazed double doors to the living room, the easy connectivity of this home makes it ideal for parties and entertaining.
Relax and unwind
Sink into relaxation in the living room, where new woodgrain flooring extends underfoot. Brimming with brightness, borrowed light from the garden room and large arced windows to the front ensure a living space saturated by natural light. Snuggle up on the sofa in front of the marble fireplace, set within a feature wall of French Grey wall and settle down for the evening in front of your favourite shows.
Returning to the entrance hall, take the carpeted staircase up to the first-floor landing, where rich Amtico flooring presides underfoot.
Turning left, discover the first of four bedrooms, coated in woodgrain laminate flooring. A bank of walnut fitted wardrobes provides a profusion of storage space, whilst a broad front window frames views out over the greenery of the quiet cul-de-sac to the front. Crisply dressed in white, wall mounted bedside lights sit to either side of the king-size bed. Revive your senses in the private ensuite, where a large walnut vanity unit houses a wash basin and a wet-room style walk-in shower offers refreshment beneath the rainfall head. There is also a handheld showerhead attachment. Sandy tiles with a spritz of grey coat the walls and floor for a spa-like feel, warmed by underfloor heating.
