Property Details

Make no mistake, this exceptional family home is full of surprises. As you open the gate and step onto your large block paved driveway, you can't help but smile as you realise it's a property that you've driven past many times and never realised was there.

The parking is expansive, the garden is immaculate, and the plot is quiet and private. It's immediately obvious why the current owners have chosen to call this home for over 30 years.

As you step into the hall, the gentle echo of your footfall on the Amtico floor reverberates up the staircase. This is a home where more than just memories have been carefully carved out.

To our left and into the living room. A beautifully presented room with large windows allowing the light to burst in.

Through to the snug with two sets of French doors inviting you out into that immaculately presented south facing garden. It's easy to imagine sitting with a well-earned cup of tea, watching the wildlife as the evenings start to draw in.

Out into the immaculately presented garden. Here on the patio is where you can sit back with a crisp glass of Sancerre on a balmy summer's evening and watch the bees hum lazily amongst the flowers.

Once suitably rested, back inside and continue into the kitchen. With an array of quality units and integrated appliances offering everything for an enthusiastic 'foodie' through to the 'ping and go' kind of chef!

Back into the hall and here we find the dining room. This gorgeous addition to the house was extended in 2003 and is so seamless that it feels like it's been here all along. Whether it's dinner for the whole family or you simply need a large additional reception, this room provides for it all with consummate ease.

With still much to uncover, back through the kitchen and now into the utility room with access to the garden and garage and here we find the guest staircase. Up we go and find two bedrooms. Both offer exceptional space and are perfect for children that want their independence but also want to be close enough to Mum and Dad! Alternatively, this lends itself to multi general living as this exceptional space can be self-contained.

It's here that we find our next surprise. With a gentle nod to Narnia, the secret access has been crafted through the wardrobe. Whilst easy to reinstate, this quirky feature has kept children and their friends amused for generations.

This brings us to the main bedroom. The same flawless quality of finish follows us throughout the tour, past the ensuite and into the hallway.

Allow yourself a peek into each of the double bedrooms on your way to the top of the staircase to then descend the stairs back to the hall.

We feel that this exceptional house really does take the term 'Hidden Gem' to the next level but the best way to find out is to see it for yourself.

Call now to view.

We Love: The combination of its prime but private location coupled with the outstanding living space and quality of finish gives a true 'turn key' property. However, who doesn't love a secret door....
