Offered to market for the first time in over 40 years, Alohn presents an exciting opportunity to purchase this glorious and substantial family home occupying an envious location and boasting beautiful farmland views and an attached annexe that could easily be absorbed into the main home.
Originally a discreetly positioned bungalow, the home has been vastly extended, creating the much cherished, imposing country home you find today, ideally suited as a multi generational home or family residence with income potential.
Alohn has been thoughtfully designed and finished offering modern and characterful accommodation with wonderful farmhouse features which seamlessly blend with light and open modern living.
The accommodation in total, including the annexe, approaches 4860 sq.ft. and is arranged over two floors.
The main home was constructed in 1998 as an attached dwelling to the original bungalow. This imposing home has been carefully designed to seamlessly fit in with the original dwelling, creating a sizeable modern yet characterful residence. When approaching the home you are greeted by the wonderful wrap around veranda, complete with draped Wisteria and a tranquil swing seat. Upon entering the home the size and quality is immediately apparent. The sizeable welcoming entrance hall gives way to all principal reception rooms with stairs leading to the first floor. The flow and usability of this versatile home is a particular feature. A particular room of mention is the stunning ‘heart of the home kitchen/breakfast/family room. This wonderful room has a spacious, well appointed farmhouse kitchen area with ample wall and base storage, built in appliances and breakfast bar. There is a further utilities area, breakfast table and ample space for a further formal dining table. Beyond there is a family area with French doors leading to the gardens and grounds, creating the perfect space for entertaining and busy family life.

The home is perfectly suited for use as a home with annexe, having separate driveways, garages and heating systems or could be reimagined as one expansive home.
The self contained two-three bedroom annexe can be accessed through the family room, but also has a separate formal access from the outside via its own private driveway with ample parking.
