This is a rarely available fine detached family home, one of five substantial houses built in charming design. It is set back from the roadway with a large drive to its approach affording ample parking space and access to a good-sized integral double garage.
On entering the wide hallway of this spacious and immaculate house one encounters a good-size study beyond which is a shower/utility room equipped with wash basin, sink, WC walk-in shower and plumbing for a washer-dryer. The large kitchen-breakfast room has granite worktops, underfloor heating, ample drawers and cupboards. Built in appliances including an induction hob. In short, it is a chef's delight.
There is direct access to the dining room and also to the pantry which in turn leads to garage and garden. The well-proportioned dining room has sliding doors to the conservatory and folding wooden double doors leading to the main reception room, thus creating a fluid, pleasant social space for entertaining. The main reception room has a lovely marble fireplace and sliding doors to the conservatory which runs the full width of the house and offers amazing views over a south-facing garden.
Steps from the conservatory lead to an extensive, tranquil and secluded garden which has been imaginatively designed and carefully maintained. Lawn leads to pond with water feature and then to terrace with cedar summer house, further lawn, workshop, well-equipped studio and even a small green house. Abundant space exists for vegetable growing. Many mature fruit trees, plants and shrubs are to be found in these pleasant grounds which extend for some 150 feet from the house.
From a wide upper hallway one has access to four fine double bedrooms three of which have en-suites. The master bedroom has built-in wardrobes, a door to a balcony running the full width of the property, and to an en-suite with underfloor heating, large shower and Philip Starck sink, vanity unit, bidet and WC. Bedroom 2 also has access to the balcony and its wonderful views over garden and city. The family bathroom is fully tiled and comprehensively equipped. The landing and stairs have been designed to facilitate an easy loft conversion, subject to necessary consents.
The property has full internet provision, comprehensive security, and ready access to A23/M23 and to British Rail. Frequent local bus services give direct access to city, seafront and beyond. Local schools have been judged among the best in the region. It is indeed rare to find home of such quality and specification.Reference: 232179
