An outstanding family house, beautifully appointed and extensively renovated during the last couple of years. The property, which was originally constructed during the mid 1930's, provides a significant family footprint with a versatile interior and stands within a generous plot with a sunny east/west orientation. This family friendly house has been systematically restored with a comprehensive heating system, double glazed windows throughout and newly installed kitchen and bathrooms. The décor is tasteful with a vibrant and chic interior, whilst some original detail has been retained which complements the more contemporary additions.

The property is approached to the front elevation via a tiled porch leading through to the reception hall with solid oak front door and stone floor and a generous galleried landing above. The principal room spans the rear elevation with a beautiful vista over the west-facing garden and the focal point is a contemporary fireplace with open flue and ornate limestone surround. Adjacent is the loggia with a tiled floor and glazing on three sides which could be adapted for a study room. The more intimate sitting room is dual aspect with an oak floor mirroring those in the hall and drawing room. The dining room is a continuation of the kitchen with double doors opening onto a balustraded balcony over the rear elevation with down-lighting and contemporary wall mounted radiators. The kitchen has the benefit of electric under floor heating and was designed and fitted by Boulevard Kitchens. High gloss units with stainless steel furniture are complemented by composite stone surfaces with a wide array of integrated appliances. These include an induction hob with an Elica extractor over, double oven, dishwasher, larder fridge and microwave all by Neff and there is an oak door with pedestrian access to the side elevation. Located off the hall is a cloakroom with low level lighting and steps down to the lower ground and the garden room. This versatile space could be adapted for a gym, cinema room or home office - its sheer scale offers a myriad of uses. Beyond lies the boiler room with newly installed gas fired boiler and doors to the garden. There is an additional under floor storage area with restricted height and a utility room with plumbing, base units and a stainless steel sink. A gardener's w.c. and a timber door giving access to an under-croft below the balustraded balcony for the storage of garden machinery.

There are six bedrooms located on the first and top floors. The master bedroom is beautifully appointed with built-in wardrobes, a door to the terrace over the loggia and there is an en suite facility with generous shower, w.c. and contemporary vanity unit. The three remaining first floor bedrooms are well served by the family bathroom with a contemporary white suite which includes a bath, shower cubicle, pedestal basin and w.c. The top floor bedrooms are surprisingly large and offer scope for the inclusion of a further bathroom or shower room subject to the necessary consents and regulations. Elevated views take in the surrounding gardens, woodland backdrop and lake which is well stocked and rich in flora and fauna.

The Brake stands within a generous and established plot. The front garden is more ornamental with a gated and block paved drive with ample off street parking. The rear garden, which has a westerly-facing orientation, offers extreme privacy and a large level lawn which is shaped and has well stocked flower borders around the curtilage. The balustraded balcony and terrace provide an al fresco dining space whilst the lower terrace adjoins the formal garden. A large rockery and a randomly paved terrace separating the formal lawns and are well stocked with alpine plants and evergreens. Beyond lies a further large and sloping lawn, with a smattering of planted trees which are bounded by a heavily planted evergreen curtilage.
