Description

Midmar is an imposing 'country manor' style residence constructed to an exceptional specification by Oakeve Limited, a prestigious award-winning local builder. The substantial
accommodation totals almost 10,000 sq ft of family living space arranged over four levels.

The welcoming hall, with wood panelling, fireplace and sweeping
staircase to the galleried landing, provides access to an impressive array of reception rooms, comprising the elegant drawing room, dining room for formal entertaining, study and TV/family room.

The stylish and sleek fitted kitchen incorporates top-of-the-range appliances including a large Britannic range, Miele microwave, oven, coffee machine, warming drawers and dishwasher. The large central island/breakfast bar houses a small secondary sink. The kitchen is a family orientated space for casual dining at one end, with steps down to the wonderful 'sunken' sitting room with its vaulted ceiling and large window and doors onto the terrace.

On the first floor leading off the galleried landing are the four principal double bedrooms, all with their own well appointed en suite bathrooms. The large master bedroom suite also has a fitted dressing room and luxurious bath/shower room.

In total there are eight bedrooms with a further staircase leading to the second floor and another four bedrooms, again all served by their own en suite shower or bathroom. The top floor could be utilised for staff or nanny for example, or additional family rooms.

The lower ground floor at Midmar is an exceptional space with a large central room, superb for parties and entertaining, with doors opening onto a sunken terrace. Open plan to this is a kitchen area for party catering, a home cinema and further games room with bar. To complete this fantastic area is a glass fronted gymnasium and wet room with changing facilities for both the gym and outside pool.

Midmar is approached from the lane via a pair of electrically operated wrought iron gates with a rising bollard for additional security. The driveway sweeps round to provide ample parking and turning in front of the double garage with electrically operated twin doors and store room above.

A further feature are the stunning extensively landscaped gardens providing large areas of terrace for al fresco entertaining. There is further space for sun loungers and relaxing around the heated swimming pool which has an electrically operated safety cover.

Beyond the terraces are expansive areas of lawn with well planted flower and shrub beds and a pleasant wooded backdrop.
