Bright & Welcoming
Stepping inside, the bright and spacious hallway offers a welcoming space to greet friends and family. Tiles extend underfoot adding an elegant and practical touch. Centrally placed, doors lead off from here to each room.
Moving through, discover the fabulous kitchen and breakfast room. Full height windows issue in light from the front of the property whilst a large window to the rear frames views to the countryside beyond. Decorated in a contemporary, minimal style and awash with spotlights, this bright room offers a hub for the family to gather.
Staying connected, settle on comfortable seating in the social breakfast room and relax with coffee while chatting to the chef as they work.
Preparing family meals will be a pleasure in the well-equipped kitchen where plentiful, white-fronted cupboards are topped with dark ‘moondust’ granite worktops. Inbuilt NEFF appliances include a fridge, fan oven, combi microwave/oven/grill and dishwasher. A SMEG ceramic hob sits neatly beneath a stylish extractor whilst beneath the window, a large Franke sink includes a waste disposal.
Dining together is easy in the adjoining dining room where a table for eight fits comfortably with room to extend when family and friends come to visit. Admire your favourite pictures placed in the fabulous, feature recesses with spotlights above or gaze out to verdant views as you dine. Illuminate the room with a stunning pendant light above the table or create a softer atmosphere with gentle wall lights.
From the kitchen a large utility room provides wall to wall fitted storage concealing a built-in washer and dryer, as well as a built-in NEFF freezer. A second sink and worktop space are useful here. An internal door leads out to the garage.
The opportunity exists to combine these rooms and open them to the garden with the potential to create an expansive family living space.
Retracing your steps, flow through to the capacious family sitting room – a convivial space in which to relax and entertain. Catch your breath as you step through the door to find floor to ceiling windows bestowing delightful views of the garden and filling the room with light. Recline on the sofa and look out over Holcombe Hill through tall windows framing the feature fireplace. On warmer days, open French doors to the terrace allowing in a soft summer breeze and the sound of birdsong.
Soak & Sleep
Returning to the hallway, discover the first of four bright bedrooms. A comfortable double, this room offers lovely views out over the terrace to the garden.
Adjacent, find a second, good sized bedroom currently serving as a study. Light flows in here through a fully glazed door edged with glass panels. Taking a break from work, stow papers and books away in generous, fitted storage then step directly out onto terrace to stretch your legs.
Find refreshment in the restful family bathroom where a double ended, raised, roll top bath sits beneath the window, inviting you to slide in and soak away your cares. Spotlights set around the edges of the room create a pleasing feature. Tiled in neutral tones to walls and floor, this room offers comfort in a large shower with separate enclosure, wash basin and WC.
Continuing to the end of the hallway, guests will feel at home in bedroom two; a large double with a pretty feature wall adding a pleasing touch. Stepping through, peek into a tranquil ensuite with curved corner shower, WC and wash basin set atop vanity storage.
Opposite, discover the master suite tucked away quietly at the end of the home. Recline and rest in this large and airy room taking in delightful views of the garden which change with the seasons. Fitted wardrobes help maintain tranquillity here providing ample space for clothes and accessories. A modern ensuite beckons, its calming décor offering sanctuary. Revive under the shower and refresh at his and hers sinks beneath matching mirrors. A WC and heated towel rail complete the room.
Bordering open fields with a gate leading onto the golf course, the delightful garden is a peaceful and private place to relax and entertain. Expansive views extend out over farmland to Holcombe Hill while a beautiful collection of mature trees and shrubs edge the lawn, providing shade in this sunny, south-facing spot.
Take to the terrace for summer barbeques with family and friends whilst children play on the large lawn then, as the light dwindles, pick up your drink and follow a path to the end of the garden for the best views of the setting sun.
