A very well presented fully updated 4 bedroom, 2 ½ bathroom family home with 3 reception rooms and a fabulous open plan 23’8” x 16’ (7.21m x 4.87m) contemporary kitchen – diner – family room with an island and an outlook over the private south facing rear garden. A further attraction is that this is one of the largest plots in this always sought after twenty house development that adjoins protected greenbelt countryside in this premier village. .
The property was originally by Clarke Homes, a highly respected national building firm, who won a series of awards for this development which comprises a pair of closes offering several differing designs of similarly desirable and valuable detached properties. The setting is within easy reach of the village centre with a range of local shops, the tennis club, parkland, schools and adjoining open countryside but safely away from through traffic and any areas of potential new development.
In recent years the present owners have commissioned a series of improvements that have transformed the house to a very comfortable family home with a contemporary air and many really attractive features. Virtually every property in the development offers a good garden and the build density is remarkably low ensuring a real feeling of space.
The well designed accommodation that has been deftly enlarged is beautifully appointed and the decor is light and very appealing.
The pillared porch shelters the front door which opens to the reception hall that is an attractive introduction to the house with genuine oak flooring, a theme that continues through to the study and the cloakroom. A staircase rises to the first floor and panelled doors lead off to the study, the cloakroom, the kitchen diner and to the living room.
The double aspect living room has a broad bay window to the front and patio doors overlook the rear garden and opens to the newly landscaped patio. A current classic style open hearth fireplace has a wood burning stove inset and double doors open to the playroom.
This room is very flexible having originally been the formal separate dining room but just as it is as useable as a separate TV room, a playroom, more work or learn from home space with an outlook again to the rear.
The outstanding dual aspect kitchen dining room is a delight and a real ‘heart of the home’ space where everyone can congregate around the sizeable island or dine at the table given there is space for a large refractory table set away to one side. The kitchen is fitted with a superb range of cabinets with an easy to keep lacquer finish. The work surfaces are granite and there are a series of built in appliances including an integrated dishwasher, double oven – grill and fridge and freezer together with tall larder cupboards. The ceramic induction hob is set into the island, the surrounds are ceramic tiled and there is high quality ceramic floor tiling to contrast. The floor tiling flows through to the utility room that has also been fully refurbished to match the kitchen further with wall and floor cupboards, space for a washing machine and tumble drier, laminated work surface, a wall mounted gas fired Vailliant ‘combi’ boiler, door and window to the garden and a door to the garage.
A study off the hall can be used as an occasional bedroom but is ideally placed away from the main living space making concentration or conference/video calls so much easier. Incidentally, fibre and cable broadband connections are available in the close with download speeds of 500mb or greater.
The landing opens to the four first floor bedrooms all of which have either fitted wardrobes or in the case of bedroom three a deep wardrobe recess.
The principal bedroom in keeping with three other bedrooms enjoys and outlook to the rear partially towards the wooded hillsides of Brockley. A range of built in wardrobes offer ample hanging space and a door opens to the generous en suite shower room. The new white suite is complemented by fitted cabinets and full tiling with a spacious low profile shower enclosure, a towel rail radiator and a frosted window.
The family bathroom has also been completely reappointed in recent years with another classic white suite including a bath with shower and screen over and contrasting ceramic tiling.
Outside: The house stands prominently with a wide sweep of lawn to the front and a double drive providing parking. The GARAGE is attached to the side of the house and has light, power, an up and over door, a high capacity electric vehicle charger, a large boarded loft over and a personnel door to the rear.
A path leads via a gate at the side of the garage to the rear garden that has been landscaped very recently with a superb sleeper framed riven paved patio area adjoin the patio doors and a matching wide pathway across the back of the house.
The lawn extends away from the patio to the south and enjoys a high degree of privacy with timber panel fencing. There is plenty of space for a trampoline if required and a timber garden shed is hidden away to the side of the house. Conveniently, there are outside power points, outside lighting and a garden tap.
