A beautifully presented & sympathetically extended Y J Lovell-era 5 bedroom detached family home situated close to Gerrards Cross town centre with accommodation over three floors. Generous 1/3 acre plot (in all).
The property approached via a pair of attractive metal gates which open onto a large gravel forecourt leading to the covered porch and front door. The bright and spacious reception hall has
a light and welcoming feel to it with a fireplace and views through the double doors to the dining room and garden beyond. The reception rooms open off the hall and the layout of the house lends itself to entertaining both in winter and summer,
in large part thanks to the clever design of the three rooms at the rear of the property. Double doors open from the dining room to the drawing room on one side and the kitchen on the other,
creating a wonderful sense of space. The kitchen/family room extends onto the terrace at the rear of the house, with two pairs of French doors to the garden and outside dining area. The house was originally built in the 1930s and has been significantly modernised and improved over the years. Today, it is perfectly suited to family living in luxurious style. Interesting features include the oak panelling in the study, high quality oak
doors, many of which have glass panes, and the abundance of bespoke bookcases and storage throughout. Two of the reception rooms also feature louvered oak shutters at the windows and the ground floor rooms have warm, oak flooring
with the exception of the kitchen and family room where large porcelain tiles are found. The state-of-the-art kitchen is home to Miele and Wolf appliances and a large pantry adjoins. Rising to the first floor, there are four bedrooms and the
master has a large bay window overlooking the garden as well as a spacious bathroom and dressing room. Three further bedrooms (one of which has an en suite shower) and a family
bathroom complete the accommodation on this level. On the second floor, the fifth bedroom is currently being used as a gym and has an array of hand-crafted bookshelves at one end.
