Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale this simply stunning detached Edwardian home that has been updated throughout to an exceptional standard by the current owners in the last few years. Delightfully positioned with views over open countryside to the rear and on a generous plot, offering yet further potential to extend if desired, subject to planning. A viewing of this home is absolutely essential for full appreciation.
Approaching the property, you will see that it has an abundance of kerb appeal. A driveway provides you with off street parking for multiple vehicles and leads to a detached double garage with power and light connected, a timber construction and an example of just some of the period features this home has retained.
Entering the property through the main front door you will immediately be wowed, here you will see the contemporary updating that has been done yet still with a sympathetic period feel, this is a theme throughout the property. The ground floor accommodation offers a great degree of flexibility in how you use the space. On one side you have an open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen which feels exceptionally spacious thanks to the high ceilings and dual aspect windows. There is a fantastic combination of wooden floors and modern polished concrete floors and features include a feature fireplace with wood burning stove and contemporary downlighting.
The kitchen area is fitted with a range of wall and base units with a work surfaces over with an inset ceramic bowl sink and drainer unit, positioned under the rear window to benefit from the stunning countryside views to the rear. Integrated appliances include an oven and electric hob with extractor over and you also have space and plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine and space for a fridge/freezer. Off the kitchen is a rear lobby with a door to the rear garden and useful cloakroom toilet.
To the other side of the ground floor accommodation, you have an open plan living room and snug with double doors to the rear garden. Once again, you have contrasting floors and another feature fireplace with wood burning stove. This is a fantastic room if you want to shut yourself away and have private time or perhaps you have kids and want a separate living area for them or you.
Going to the first floor this home continues to impress. Off the landing you have 3 double bedrooms, an extremely generous master bedroom with strip wooden flooring and that actually used to be two bedrooms previously, and the two further bedrooms benefiting from built in wardrobes. The bedrooms share the use of a luxury re-fitted family bathroom, fitted with a four-piece suite in white and includes a walk-in shower with rain head shower, free standing bath and wash hand basin. This is one of the most impressive bathrooms we have seen as an agent, again a perfect feel of old and new.
Going outside, to the rear, you have a very generous rear garden than benefits from a high degree of privacy and feels even more generous thanks to the open countryside views beyond. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees, a large paved patio area, raised decking and useful side gate giving access to the front.
