Ensum Brown are delighted to offer for sale this stunning individual detached home that is just 12 months old and located on a generous plot in the village of 'Highfields Caldecote' on the outskirts of Cambridge. Completed with no expense spared and with great thought and careful consideration throughout, this property must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
Situated off a quiet no through road and set back off West Drive, this nearly new home was commissioned by the current owners and it is a true reflection of their time and love for this home. You approach the property by a long block paved driveway where you have electric gates with a video entry system. The block driveway continues as you approach the property where you have ample parking for multiple vehicles. When you first see the property it is very deceptive of the size of both the property and plot you are about to see. The positioning is just fantastic and very private, with only gardens surrounding and with paddocks and a woodland area to the rear, you feel you like you are in the middle of the countryside not that you are only a short drive or even cycle away from Cambridge city.
You step in to the property in to a large entrance hall and you will immediately get the sense of light and space, this is the style of modern home that many desire, a great amount of open plan living, light and space but also areas of separation. It should also be noted that this is both a highly energy efficient home and a home with long term living considered, with the availability of bedrooms both upstairs and down.
The show piece and heart of this home is simply spectacular. To the rear you will find an open plan living room, dining room and kitchen/breakfast room that feels even more spacious thanks to the feature vaulted ceiling area to the living area and the high volumes of glass used right to the roof line and then with twin 'Schuco' bi-fold doors that open the whole room up to the landscaped rear garden. This is the room where you can spend all day as a family and is a fantastic space to socialise and entertain with friends and family well in to the evening.
There are so many features to this property and this main reception room that we must highlight, demonstrating its rarely found quality and you can very much tell this was a home built to live in, not for pure development purposes. The ground floor entrance and main reception room has high shine Italian porcelain 900mm large format tiles with underfloor heating. The underfloor heating is on both ground and first floors and with each room being individually controlled. The internal doors, architraves and frames are all American white oak, there is a contemporary 'Rocal Drop' fire in the living area which is a lovely focal point and perfect for the winter nights and the kitchen area has all the built in appliances you could possibly desire. These include a 'Miele' induction hob in the central island with 'Neff' rising extractor, a 'Neff' single oven and 'Neff' combination oven and microwave oven, a waste disposal system, 'Quooker' instant hot water tap, two wine cooler fridges, 'Neff' dishwasher and fridge/freezer and the work surfaces of both the kitchen surfaces and large breakfast island are a Brazilian granite.
Completing the ground floor is a utility room with space and plumbing for further utilities, cloakroom toilet, storage cupboard, a delightful snug to the front room with European engineered oak floor with a feature double burning 'Rias Bionic' contemporary wood burning stove and two double bedrooms both with luxury en-suite facilities and again with the European engineered oak flooring.
Taking the European Oak with glass balustrade staircase to the first floor you will find a further two double bedrooms, again both with luxury en-suite facilities. All four en-suites are again finished to the highest standard possible, with 'Villeroy and boch' sanitary ware, porcelain fully tiled walls and floors and the one of the ground floor bedroom en-suites features a jacuzzi bath. The master bedroom is another showcase of this home, with vaulted ceiling, plenty of space for wardrobes and a feature privacy glass window overlooking the living area with mood lighting. The whole first floor has the European engineered oak flooring. The final area of the internal accommodation to mention and highlight is the first floor landing area which has been made the best use of possible. Currently used as a study area, this could also be a quiet reading or seating area and with the glass lantern roof window above it is just one more stunning feature of this home.
Going outside you have gardens to multiple aspects of the property which like the inside have been completed with much expense and care. Finishing outside includes Russian Larch cladding, 'Sto' render and a 'Philip Hue' lighting system, makes the gardens a great space both day and night. You have large traditional lawned areas with flower and shrub planting, a patio directly off the living area accessed from the bi-fold doors, another quiet seating area with water feature, a hot tub and an timber outbuilding with tiled roof with power and light connected. Finally, to the front you also have the possibility of a double garage and additional joining workshop. This has been left for the new owners to decide what this existing building is used for as its recognised there are many options that are personal to each potential new owner. As well as a garage this could be a home office, annexe, gym or more.
Call Ensum Brown today to arrange your private viewing of this home, you won't find another out there like it and we doubt another of such quality on the market today.
