Owner's Comments

“We love the flexible space in a private setting, the gated development appealed to us when we first viewed as we felt the setting provided the perfect environment for our new home.”

“We love that we are living in a city but you wouldn't know it! We are so close to the motorways and railways that make travelling so convenient, the location is great for easy access to so many places.”


Built to an exacting specification in 2013 this fine home offers extremely spacious accommodation exceeding 3000 square feet in size and has no forward chain therefore providing the opportunity for an early completion date. The property is superbly presented throughout and will appeal to the discerning purchaser seeking a stunning residence with generously proportioned rooms that are ideally suited to the growing family that also has the added advantage of a south-westerly facing garden with an attractive leafy outlook.

This area creates a favourable impression when entering this fine home and boasts quality wood effect flooring and a spindled American white oak staircase ascends to the first floor. A cloakroom displays a quality suite and is adjacent to the walk-in coats cupboard whilst a further door leads to the integral double garage. The elegant lounge is a comfortable sized reception room and the feature oak mantelpiece has a log burner and a marble hearth that is pleasing focal point for the room. A door leads to the study that has the added advantage of a side pedestrian door ideal for business visitors. Approached from the lounge via oak bi-fold doors, the family room is an outstanding feature of the property and boasts a vaulted ceiling. It has the option to be used as a dining room and is the perfect place to host formal dinner parties or informal family gatherings as bi-fold doors and windows overlook the rear garden and another door leads to the kitchen.

An additional freezer is installed together with a washer/dryer and a door leads to the side path. Featuring a distinctive corner window the further reception room was originally designed to provide a formal dining room but could be utilised as a home office/snug room if desired.

Twin automated up and over doors allow access to the larger than average integral double garage where pedestrian doors lead to the hall and the garden and a rubberised concrete floor is installed. The rear garden is approached from both sides of the house via paved paths with sensor activated lighting, an outside tap and a large custom built shed is found to the left. Measuring 76' x 50' the garden has a delightful leafy outlook and the south-westerly aspect ensures the best of the afternoon and evening sunshine. A large paved patio is approached from the family room and breakfast area and is the perfect place for al fresco dining and relaxing on sunny days and warm evenings. An electric sun canopy is installed to provide welcome shade in the height of summer. The garden has an attractive vista and is laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees whilst a brick wall defines the left boundary. Standing at the rear boundary looking back at the house offers an impressive view of this substantial family home.
