Quidington is a much improved, extended and refabricated detached family house offering beautifully finished, light and spacious accommodation for modern family living.
Points of note in the main house include:
French limestone and English oak flooring; impressive reception hall with spacious galleried landing above; decorative coving, skirting and door architraves; sealed unit double glazing throughout; open fireplace in the drawing room; French doors leading out from the principle ground floor living rooms; excellent family kitchen breakfast room with view over the garden and an electric 4 door AGA; four modern white en suite bath/shower rooms and two ground floor cloakrooms; and comprehensive fitted bedroom and bathroom furniture.
The detached garage building has a ground floor kitchenette with stairs leading up to a spacious double bedroom with en suite shower room, ideal for au pairs / teenagers / guests. There is also a shower/wet room and changing room on the ground floor and a single garage with workshop / storage space to the rear.
There is lapsed planning permission (SE/10/00062/FUL) for an outdoor swimming pool and terrace to be built in the garden to the rear of the house. A former stable building would need to be demolished if this were to be re-instated but there is a further detached outbuilding that could be used as a pool house to the west of the proposed pool site and the garage block wet room and changing room was intended for this purpose.
The property is approached via electric, telephone entry iron gates, which open onto a substantial brick paved parking area that wraps around the front and side of the house. There is ample parking for several cars, making the property ideal for large families and entertaining. The block paving continues around to the rear of the house where it becomes a broad terrace overlooking the gardens and woodland. Steps lead up to a further driveway and terrace by the garage and studio flat outbuilding, with a separate gated entrance from the private lane.
The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with a few mature trees dotted around the perimeter. The private woodland provides a beautiful backdrop to the secluded garden setting.
Services: Oil fired central heating. Mains water, electricity and drainage.
