DESCRIPTION Set in a tucked away position along a private lane, this unique property, with its external cedar shingle hanging tiles, captures the charm of a treasured holiday home, and would not look out of place on the New England coast. Inside, the flexible accommodation has been given a wonderfully warm, stylish look and feel, with the modern features and insulation standards required to create a comfortable modern family home.
The property is entered through a useful boot room which in turn leads you into the impressive kitchen which gives an immediate "wow" factor, an experience which continues throughout the house. With its vaulted ceiling and large feature window, the kitchen feels incredibly light and airy. The bespoke oak units, granite worktops, large butler sink and high spec appliances add to the appeal, as does the beautiful marble stone floor. At the centre of the house is the lovely living / dining area which is open to the kitchen. With its beautiful solid oak floor and fireplace, which we are advised could take a wood burner, this is a warm and inviting place to sit and eat with family and entertain friends. All the other rooms lead from this area, which gives the house a very practical layout. To one side, double doors lead to a charming sitting room. With its French doors that open onto the decked patio beyond and a fireplace which could be lined for a wood burner, this is a tranquil place to sit and relax both in the summer and winter.
To the other side of the property are the three bedrooms and bathroom. The spacious and very calming principal bedroom, with its luxury wet room and generous built-in storage, is somewhere to unwind at the end of a long day. French doors open onto the south facing decked patio from this bedroom, which makes a lovely spot for sitting with your morning coffee and papers. The two remaining bedrooms are beautifully presented, both with built-in wardrobes. An elegant and most luxurious traditional style bathroom with a freestanding double ended roll top bath completes the internal accommodation.
OUTSIDE A driveway at the front of the property provides parking for up to three cars. From this, paths both sides of the house take you through to two different areas of the garden, both of which have been designed and planted to maximise their southerly aspect and minimise maintenance. To one side, a pebble garden leads to a raised decked area which provides an oasis of privacy, calm and relaxation and is completely in keeping which the character of the property. At the other side of the house, a stone path leads you to a very neatly maintained lawn area with mature planting and a patio. Attached to the house is a timber store which could provide further potential, subject of course to the necessary permissions.
NB: "Byways" is approached over a private lane which is owned by a neighbouring property, but which this property has a right of access over at all times. There is also a turning circle at the end of the lane which we understand is for the use of each of the properties in the lane.
