This substantial detached family home of over 5,000sqft, provides versatile accommodation arranged over three floors. Upon entering, a large reception hall, with views over and access to the rear gardens, creates a strong first impression. The main reception area is an impressive open plan space with distinct sitting and dining areas and this lies adjacent to a further spacious reception room, currently used as a library. Located just off the dining hall is a well proportioned study, with bespoke sauna to one corner, and a fabulous kitchen/breakfast room/conservatory. This is a lovely light space which enjoys fine views over the gardens and direct access to them. The kitchen itself affords an excellent range of fitted eye and base level units and granite work surfaces, with an Aga taking centre stage. A practical utility room, with front and rear access, lies adjacent with space for white goods. Completing the floor is a further family/TV room with double doors to the garden, and a practical cloakroom. Two sets of stairs afford access to the first floor where to one side the bedroom accommodation is found. This comprises five bedrooms, one of which is on the second floor, and of note three of these feature wash basin facilities set within built-in wardrobes. The master bedroom enjoys a front to back dual aspect with extensive wardrobes and luxurious ensuite facilities. The remainder are serviced by a separate family bathroom suite. From the top floor there is access onto a large roof terrace which arguably enjoys the best elevated views of the gardens. To the other side of the house, and accessed by the second staircase, is an open galleried area and a further versatile room measuring over 30' in length. This is currently used as his and hers study quarters but could also serve as a family/games room, or additional bedrooms if required.

One of the real features of this home are the beautifully landscaped gardens, both front and back. To the front, pretty pedestrian gates open to a pathway leading to the front door which is bordered by a variety of attractive planted shrubs and hedging. To one side there is electric gated access to a brick paved driveway which affords access to the detached double garage. The garage is currently used for storage with a partition wall in place behind the doors. Our clients advise this could easily be removed if required. The rear gardens are stunning and in our opinion must be seen to be fully appreciated. There are a number of distinct areas, one of which is a large flat lawn with plenty of space for a family to enjoy. Lying adjacent to one side is an attractive raised garden pond/water feature which offers a pleasant focal point. Beyond this is a garden shed and a large area laid as fruit and vegetable patches for home growing. Lying to the far end of the formal lawn is a beautifully shaped and tended topiary garden, set among which is a lovely gazebo which provides the ideal spot to sit and enjoy the tranquil setting. Of note, the gardens benefit from an automated 'Rainbird' watering system.
