This is a new build property
The quality of this house hits you from the minute you walk into the welcoming reception hall.
You step through the front door onto wood effect Italian tiles that are warmed by the underfloor heating that runs throughout the ground floor. To your left the staircase, with solid oak balustrading and handrail, leads to the first floor. On your right is a cloakroom with a stunning Bauhaus hand basin on a bespoke made, solid oak stand and a w.c. The hallway leads on to a bright and airy dual aspect sitting room with French doors to the patio and garden. Ahead of you, also overlooking the garden is the study. The impressive kitchen is triple aspect with 2 sets of French doors leading onto the patio and allowing you to fully appreciate the garden and bring the outside in. The kitchen comprises top quality units that include a striking oak mantle and NEFF appliances. A door from the kitchen leads to a good size utility room with a separate sink and plenty of additional cupboard space. The kitchen also leads to a versatile dual aspect dining/family room that is light and airy and overlooks the raised flower bed to the side of the property.
Upstairs the quality continues. On the first floor the master suite comprises a fully fitted dressing area and indulgent ensuite bathroom with a bespoke made, solid oak double vanity unit, contemporary freestanding bath and Merlyn shower enclosure. There are 3 further double bedrooms, 2 with fitted wardrobes, one with an ensuite shower room and a sumptuous family bathroom. A second staircase leads to a further double bedroom and a spacious bathroom that would be perfect for guests or teenage children.
Why is it called Deormed’s House?
According to the owners the name ‘ Deormeds’ dates far back in history. The land on Barnards Lane was gifted by King Alfred the Great to his most loyal servant, Deormed.
Over the years, as parcels of the land were sold off and the new properties were bestowed with names chosen by the owners, the last connection to King Alfred’s Deormed was lost when ‘Deormed’s Croft’ was shortened to simply ‘The Croft’. The owners wanted to restore the historical link to the area and thought the opportunity to call the new house Deormed’s House was the right and fitting thing to do hence Deormed’s House. So now you know and can tell your friends when they ask.
