Set behind electric gates that open onto a gravel drive, Auburn is a beautifully presented and characterful five bedroom detached house built circa 1895 which measures over 4200sq feet and set on a plot of almost 1/2 an acre. It offers a wonderfully private and sunny south west-facing garden with patio area facing a heated swimming pool and pool house, perfect for entertaining and alfresco dining. One enters the house into a spacious and light entrance hall which leads into various living rooms including a grand reception and dining room, the first of two family rooms which is currently used as a TV room/snug, and a stunning kitchen diner. This in turn leads into the second family or sun room with access into a spacious utility room and study. The bedrooms on the upper floor are all a good size, the master of which opens into a dressing room with banks of built-in bespoke wardrobes; this could be converted into bedroom six if required. Both bathrooms are extremely contemporary and service different sides of the house, the largest of which has a separate shower and rolltop bath. With a light, neutral decor throughout, period features such as large windows and fireplaces and an unmistakable charm and elegance, Auburn is the ideal long-term family home for any discerning buyer who loves to entertain and impress.
