General Description


Meticulously designed to provide spacious, bright, and versatile accommodation over two floors, this beautifully presented modern detached villa nestled in landscaped gardens complete with a driveway and double garage, offers an exceptional lifestyle. Completing a full renovation with the addition of a brand-new boiler, the neat east-facing lawn flanking the driveway and double garage leads you to a porch framing the front door. Upon entering, the light and airy hallway decorated in soft neutral tones and with chic parquet flooring sets the scene for the whole property. Passing a classically-styled WC you enter the spectacular west-facing kitchen/dining/sitting room. Beautifully finished it benefits from a picturesque view of the rear garden as well as access through elegant French doors, making it a wonderful space for family life and entertaining. The generous and refined L-shaped kitchen showcases handcrafted wall and floor cabinetry finished in a sophisticated sage green with solid brass and complementary white stone worktops. Alongside the Belfast sink there is a full suite of high-spec AEG integrated appliances including an American-style fridge/freezer, eye-level oven and grill, and an induction hob built into a focal kitchen island. An open layout ensures a seamless flow between the kitchen, dining area and sitting room, with the latter a light-filled space perfect for relaxation that leads to the garden. The good-sized utility room is equipped with further storage ensuring that the kitchen/dining/sitting room remains streamlined, and it also allows direct entry to the double garage. Returning to the hallway, the light-filled living room enjoys a westerly aspect over the rear garden and with French doors opening up to the alfresco area offers a wonderful connection between the indoors and outdoors. Showcasing plush carpeting, a living flame fireplace set into a striking stone mantle and a calm colour palette the room exudes an elegant ambience making it ideal for relaxing as well as more formal gatherings. Completing the layout on this floor is a cosy double bedroom or peaceful home office overlooking the front garden. Ascending the carpeted staircase to the first-floor galleried landing, five magnificent bedrooms await. With its easterly outlook, the impressive principal double bedroom is bathed in plentiful natural light from triple windows. Bespoke built-in wardrobes and an indulgent en-suite shower room equipped with a WC and washbasin built into a wall-hung vanity are set against an opulent turquoise and gold interior, the result is understated modern luxury. The remaining bedrooms, four doubles and one single, each boast a tasteful interior design along with built-in wardrobes, with one also boasting an en-suite mirroring the style of the principal. Each also share access to a striking design-led bathroom housing a freestanding oval bath, rainfall shower enclosure, towel radiator, WC, washbasin built into a wall-hung vanity and underfloor heating. A versatile dressing room finishes the first-floor layout. 


The beautifully kept gardens include the charming easterly front garden with a neat lawn and borders flanking the driveway and double garage. Fully enclosed the west-facing rear garden has been thoughtfully landscaped and perfectly combines sandstone paving, a manicured lawn, and raised sleeper beds to create an idyllic haven perfect for family life. 

The four-car driveway and double garage allows for ample off-street parking.
