Privacy - of course that's what you're looking for and here the owner found it nearly 12 years ago!
Privacy: 'a state in which one is not observed or disturbed by other people.'
It's a powerful motivator and one that drew the owner to this home over eleven years ago.
It was a property that felt very different back then, the potential was obvious and so was the delightful feeling of seclusion inside the home and garden. You can change a home but not where it is.
Now you find somewhere that has a distinct charm, one elevated from the original building. Pull up outside and there is a softness of line accentuated by the 'eyebrow' to the roof, an architectural feature we always have a fondness for.
Inside this home has been 'opened up' to create balance between the main rooms that suits modern life. The L-shaped living room provides a unique space that provides a lovely family space with room for novelty, to furnish in a wholly different and very stylish way; we love intriguing space.
The kitchen is a delightful centre point, throw open the bifold doors and you step seamlessly from home to garden and back again. The main working area is wonderfully designed to be easy to engage with whilst the island draws family and friends to it, provides a stage for sharing food and drink and will be a place you find yourself wedded to much of the time.
For those 'sit down at the dining table' moments you have a room that is in proportion with how the rest of the home now feels and is a stand out room in its own right.
For the practical elements of life there is the essential downstairs cloakroom and, tucked away in the utility room, a downstairs shower that is there as a perfect way to clean muddy paws before letting them loose around the house.
Upstairs there are three ensuite bedrooms, yes three! All individual, all special and a fourth bedroom can become a lovely study looking out over the rear garden if desired.
That garden is a lovely feature, big enough to enjoy, not too big to become a burden. Neatly designed for entertaining or just to sit and enjoy time with yourself, undisturbed.
The garage is another surprise here, not just a double garage, it is more, a space for a workshop, extra storage, incredibly useful and easy for you to utilise in a way that suits your lifestyle.
We love this home for so many reasons.
