Discreetly tucked back from the road in a peaceful and highly private setting, the extensive ground floor of Chylowen generates a superb sense of space, and a hugely open plan feel. A striking open fireplace with its curved brick chimney breast provides an instant focal to the double aspect sitting room, while the easy flowing layout leads you into a dining room that opens onto the broad patio. The triple aspect kitchen is tastefully appointed with a wealth of Shaker-style cabinets and granite countertops, along with a range of appliances that offers every convenience. A broad central island with a breakfast bar delineates the space, and the patio doors of a seating area with underfloor heating make it easy to step outside. The accommodation includes an additional playroom and a study/snug along with a utility room with access to the garden and integral garaging.
Upstairs a superior double aspect principal bedroom produces a luxurious feel with an abundance of fitted wardrobes and an outstanding en suite shower room. Four further bedrooms are equally well-presented and while two benefit from walk-in wardrobe/study areas, one has a cleverly hidden en suite shower room. The contemporary suite of the family bathroom includes a stylish bathtub and large rainfall shower.
Behind an enviably sized garden, the red brick facade of Chylowen with its distinguished chimney stack and covered entrance offers a picturesque first impression. A sweeping driveway and integral garaging with loft space supply parking for several vehicles. At the rear of the house, a glorious garden with an expansive lawn provides an idyllic amount of outdoor space. Its paved patio is ideal for al fresco meals and a lovely selection of tall hedgerows, border trees and shrubs give colour and interest throughout the year.
