Tucked away at the end of a private residential cul de sac off Harestone Hill, Michaelmas House is a 4/5 bedroom house that has flexible and spacious accommodation with a modern interior and extensive living space to suit the needs of a growing family. The property was a quality build circa 1989 by Berkeley Homes and has recently been improved and updated.
This property comprises an entrance hall with coat cupboard, under stairs storage and a cloakroom with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware, all with under floor heating.
The light and elegant sitting room has a triple aspect, a limestone fireplace, handmade radiator covers, window blinds/curtains and tri-folding doors opening to the patio and garden. In addition, there is a separate study, and a well-placed entertainment/family room which leads to a conservatory. Both overlook the garden, and have handmade radiator covers, window blinds and underfloor heating.
(Note: there is full planning permission to incorporate the conservatory into the kitchen)
Of particular note is the open plan kitchen and dining room, both of which have underfloor heating, handmade radiator covers and window blinds, and meet all the requirements of a modern family. This L shaped, sociable space combines an entertaining area with ample room for a large dining table and a front aspect allowing plenty of light, with an adjoining kitchen that has an extensive range of fitted units topped by granite work surfaces. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, 5 ring gas hob, extractor, twin ovens, microwave and fridge/freezer.
Completing the ground floor is a utility room with space for washing appliances, and access to a fully insulated, boarded, storage area.
On the first floor are 4 bedrooms all with fitted wardrobes, handmade radiator covers and window blinds. The landing allows access to a fully insulated, boarded, storage area.
There is a sizeable and most impressive master bedroom suite which includes a dressing room with extensive fitted wardrobes leading into a modern en suite with a walk-in glass shower enclosure, Villeroy & Boch, Vola and Grohe sanitary ware, modern units and underfloor heating.
Bedroom two is equally as attractive. Originally built as a five bedroom home this property has recently seen bedroom 5 incorporated into bedroom two to create a second bedroom suite. This suits the needs of the present family, but would be simply reversed or extended (see below) by the new owners if desired. There is a dressing area, and en-suite with Hansgrohe and Geberit sanitary ware, and modern units.
(Note: There is full planning permission for a side and loft space extension)
There are 2 additional double bedrooms of equal decorative quality and a family bathroom with Villeroy & Boch and Vola sanitary ware, modern units and underfloor heating.
