Pull up outside this handsome home, elegantly extended to accommodate a growing family and designed to maximise the stunning rear views out over the greens. There is plenty of space for two cars on the driveway with on road parking for more.
Welcome home. Light flows through the glazed panels in the contemporary composite front door, illuminating the sleek Karndean flooring underfoot.
Step through the oak, glazed double doors to the left and onto the soft cream carpet of the sitting room, where a subtly arced front window draws daylight through, suffusing the space. To the far end of the room, French doors open up onto an Indian paved patio, perfect for alfresco dining, with open views out over the fairway beyond.
In wintertime, snuggle up on the sofa in front of the gas fire, set within an iridescent tiled hearth, surrounded by an ornately carved white fireplace. Light and spacious, with soothing neutral tones to the walls, this is the ultimate evening relaxation room.
Returning to the hallway, freshen up in the downstairs cloakroom ahead, tiled to the walls and fitted with WC and wash basin with a storage cupboard for your essentials and cleaning products.
Coming out of the cloakroom, turn left and through into the open plan lounge-dining area, where glimpses of greenery greet you through the bountiful rear windows.
Immediately to the right, sneak a peek through to the study, a light and bright room with a curved window overlooking the front garden. An ideal space for those working from home; it could also serve as a playroom or snug lounge.
Karndean flooring is complemented by sage green walls, reflecting the trees and greenery beyond and creating a sense of harmony between outdoors and in. With space for a sofa, the room opens up to the rear into a dining area where bifold doors draw the garden in.

A central island, containing a sink with Quooker instant boiling tap and pop up power points, also serves as a breakfast bar.

There is even additional hidden wiring in the ceiling for additional feature lighting should it be required in the future.

A second set of bifold doors helps blur the boundaries between the garden and kitchen, perfect for parties and summertime soirees. Soak up the stunning views over Greenmount Golf Course.
From the living area, turn right and through into a cloak area with boiler, water tank and storage, before continuing on into the utility room, furnished with more cupboards and a second integrated fridge-freezer, a countertop containing a second sink, plumbing for a washer and dryer and access out through the back door. An ideal ‘gardener’s’ or ‘dog-walker’s entrance, there is ample room for a dog bed in here.

Attractive silver and white wallpaper adorns one wall, with grey carpet to the floor and fitted wardrobes to one wall. Plenty of space in here for a desk, handy when doing homework.
Opposite, a shower room is on hand to freshen up, with grey tiles in the walk-in shower gleaming in the light from the window and spotlighting overhead. A wall mounted wash basin contains storage beneath with a chrome heated ladder rail on hand to keep towels toasty warm.
Next door, discover a spacious, walk-in storage cupboard, ideal for housing your cleaning essentials, linen, luggage and all the children’s toys. It could also make an excellent ironing room.

Marble tiling behind adds a feeling of spa-style luxury to your bathing.
Explore the fourth double bedroom, carpeted in cream with muted grey walls, to the front of the home. Finally, arrive at a fifth double bedroom, located on the left as you ascend the stairs.
