Description A fabulous family home which has been much extended in recent years, including the conversion of the double garage into an additional reception room. The property boasts a modern and stylish finish throughout including the fixtures and fittings in the bathrooms and the kitchen, and the versatile accommodation is such that two of the bedrooms are designed so that it is very easy to convert or merge extra rooms to make larger bedrooms, or further en suites, if so desired. The property is situated on a larger than average plot with immaculate and landscaped gardens, particularly to the rear, combining a children's playground with a soft fruit and vegetable garden, and a more formal level area of lawn. Our vendor comments - 'We moved into this property from Switzerland in November 2011. We were at that time a family of five, together with a Swiss Burnese mountain dog and two cats so needed a relatively large house and garden, plus access to a good walking area and international airport. The location was for us perfect: five minutes to the moors to walk the dog; fifteen minutes to Sheffield; easy access to Manchester airport via the beautiful Snake Pass and the local Dore village provides most daily shopping needs. We absolutely love living here as it is a very friendly, safe and quiet neighbourhood. The property has simply worked for us because of the design, with a large open family living/kitchen/dining area, great storage space in all rooms including a large boarded loft, the bedrooms are all very good sizes allowing double beds in each kids room together with wardrobes, and the house has an additional "games room" on the upper floor, which is perfect for the kids and sleepovers. The double garage was previously converted to an additional downstairs reception which we use at present for a combination of fitness and hobbies. The outdoors is a very nice space indeed with pond having lots of wildlife, mature planting throughout and a really large vegetable garden with raised beds. The storage in the garden is also excellent, with a large summer house and garden shed for everything from mountain bikes and garden tools to the storage of garden furniture. The garden is simply vibrant in the spring and summer months and is a gem for any keen gardener. The potential for this property is easy to imagine, all the upstairs rooms are designed such that it would be very easy to convert extra rooms to make larger bedrooms with en suites, and the garden would allow for extension to build an orangery of conservatory if so desired. We are moving back to our house in Switzerland, there is therefore no chain involved and we will move hopefully during the first week in July.'

From the block paved drive at the front of the property, which provides off road parking for two vehicles, access is gained to the fabulous reception hall which features glass balustrading to the contemporary staircase rising to the first floor, and galleried landing. There are also floor to ceiling oak bookcases across one wall giving a great first impression. There are also fitted cloaks storage cupboards in the hallway. The dining room features walnut flooring and extends to the front elevation, an double doors lead through to the snug which is currently used as an office, having a rear facing aspect with door to the garden. Beyond both these reception areas the large living kitchen is sure to impress, again having walnut flooring and the fitted kitchen features granite worktops. This room has both front and rear aspects, including oversized patio doors leading to the barbecue terrace and garden. On the other side of the hallway there is a modern ground floor wc, a large utility room with additional oven (ideal when entertaining, and particular at Christmas) and further preparation surfaces alongside plumbing and recesses for the usual white goods. The original double garage has now been converted into an additional reception room and provides versatility in its use and features two good built in storage cupboards. Beyond this reception area there is a large boot room ideal for the busy family with external access to the rear garden and in here you can also find the boiler and tank system.

On the first floor there are both low and high level LED lights on the smart galleried landing, a separate wc situated opposite the family bathroom, which has a lovely finish including a modern suite with separate shower enclosure, all framed by elegant tiling. The master suite includes a large double bedroom with floor to ceiling front facing window giving a lovely feel to the room. The walk in wardrobe will certainly prove useful and this is situated to the side of the luxurious en suite shower room. Leading off the landing there are further bedrooms, the one to the side of the family bathroom is actually split into two rooms providing versatility in its use, ideal for a larger child and utilised at present as a double bedroom with study area on the rear elevation, and a large walk in wardrobe area. Opposite this room there is a generous front facing double bedroom and further down the landing a rear facing small double/large single could easily be utilised as a home office. The "games room" that our vendor refers to is actually a large front facing room, currently utilised as a sitting area, to the remaining rear facing double bedroom which overlooks the garden. These rooms certainly provide a good degree of versatility in their use.

Externally, our vendor was correct in his comments about the gardens, they truly are magnificent: beautifully landscaped and providing areas of interest to all with a central level lawned garden area leading to a children's fort/playground. There is a barbecue deck with pergola situated outside the living kitchen and to the side of the children's area there is a quite substantial vegetable garden with raised beds and netting protecting the soft fruits. On the other side of the lawned garden there is a meadow with a number of different species of grass and bamboo, a pond with a bridge over and large summer house/garden store.

All in all an outstanding property which will not fail to impress.
