The front of the home is approached by a large stone-chipped driveway, the stone chipped areas to the left & right (before the courtyard entrance) allows private parking for multiple cars. There is access to the main door to the steading via the courtyard area.
Stepping into the bright and open reception hall which sets the stage for the sense of sumptuous luxury found throughout, characterised by the bespoke finishings such as the Amtico flooring that cohesively links the ground floor, farmhouse style doors and a statement staircase with cast iron detail. Starting with the lounge which forms part of the free-flowing reception areas and features panelled windows across the peaceful courtyard. Adopting a natural decorative design with light toned walls and French doors to the side garden, this allows the exquisite stone surround fireplace with inset wood burning stove to be the hero of the space. Steps take you down into a further impeccable public room that is set out as a recreational family snug, but would equally serve well as a study/home office or perhaps a playroom. Finishing this wing is a handy utility room housing units with solid butcher's block worktop, a large pantry cupboard and plumbing for white goods.
Off the hall lies a spacious double bedroom which is bathed in warm light, and a contemporary family shower room boasting a triple walk-in shower enclosure & rainfall shower, low-level WC and sleek vanity with a curved glass basin and storage underneath.
Completing the ground floor is a highly polished dining kitchen and an inviting sitting room with a welcoming wall-mounted feature fireplace, which could easily be utilised as a formal dining room. The kitchen is crisply accented with high gloss base and wall cabinetry, sharp white worktop and deep pan drawers. There is an integrated dishwasher and high specification Rangemaster cooker, Raeburn stove with Smeg extractor hood which will all be included in the sale. An appointed area for dining table and chairs is highlighted by two skylights and inset spotlights to the ceiling, creating a sunlit space for restful Sunday brunches.
Continuing up to an exceptionally bright and open first floor landing containing useful cupboard storage, and complemented by three Velux windows and premium flooring giving a smooth, seamless feel. The stylish master suite incorporates steps down into a flawless double room that is also accessible via the external staircase, accompanied by a high ceiling and Velux windows flooding the room in natural light. Ample storage is also given in four sets of fitted wardrobes. An immaculately tiled en-suite bathroom comprises of a deep Jacuzzi style bath & shower attachment, WC and traditional wash hand basin. Bedrooms two and four are respectively a spacious double with coombed ceiling, and a comfortable single benefitting from triple fitted wardrobes.
It's fair to say that the 'pièce de résistance' of the property is the extraordinary garden that has been lovingly tended over the years and offers a large green area with an array of mature shrubs and trees. Off the kitchen lies a beautiful sandstone patio which is ideal for summery seating, and then a stone-chipped drying area and additional paving that extends down the side of the home. Continuing up to the substantial lawned garden that is brimming with a delightful selection of mature foliage including fir, silver birch and distinctive monkey puzzle trees, that not only offer a wonderful backdrop but also giving a secluded country feel. There is an array of areas to be appreciated for all the family, and a perfect outdoor space for kids/grandkids to run about and play.
Extras: all floor coverings, blinds, light fittings, integrated appliances, free-standing fridge/freezer, Rangemaster cooker, Raeburn stove and the 4 garden sheds & a potting shed, used for wood stores and garden storage. Please note no warranties or guarantees will be given with these. (please note the courtyard area is predominantly private with only access to the steading front)
