Tenure: Freehold

A 1940s five bedroom detached property with a plot of approximately 0.5 acres and parkland gardens. The property provides flexible accommodation over two floors and has been improved and updated by the current owners. There are three reception rooms as well as a bespoke Amdega conservatory that has views over the rear garden. The screened front gardens have a driveway providing parking as well as access to the double width garage.

Accommodation 
The entrance vestibule leads into the reception hall which has moulded ceiling coving and ceiling roses and a full turn staircase to the first floor. The cloakroom has a WC and washbasin and there is an understairs storage cupboard.

Reception Rooms 
There are three reception rooms plus a custom built Amdega conservatory. The sitting room and dining room have Adam style fireplaces, ceiling coving and ceiling roses. The dual aspect sitting room overlooks the gardens and has a feature bay window. Double doors from the dining room provide access to the conservatory which has panoramic views of the gardens and access to the patio areas.

Kitchen and Conservatory 
The conservatory and dining room together form a useful entertaining suite. The kitchen has fully fitted limed oak units and complementary runs of work surfaces. Both the kitchen floor and worktops have Italian terracotta coloured tiles. The kitchen is dual aspect and overlooks secluded parkland style gardens. The bay window in the kitchen creates an informal dining area capable of seating six adults.

Study/Home Office 
A study/home office is accessed from the corridor adjacent to the kitchen. The study has a number of full height storage cupboards with adjustable shelves. The room has direct access onto the covered barbeque area and rear garden. There is an entranceway and separate corridor to the study from the front of the house. All of these areas are laid with the same Italian terracotta coloured tiles as the kitchen.

First Floor 
The staircase to the first floor passes a high stained glass window. There are five bedrooms, four of which overlook the rear gardens. Two of the bedrooms are interconnected in addition to having their own access from the first floor corridor. The master bedroom and guest bedroom have balconies with waist high rails. The master bedroom has a full range of built in storage cupboards and wardrobes each of which has separate internal storage. The en suite bathroom has twin wash basins and mirrors. There is a separate shower room and a separate WC adjacent to storage cupboards, and a boiler room which houses a Worcester Bosch condensing boiler. Above the bedrooms is a fully boarded loft space with access from the bedroom corridor.

Outside 
Access to the property is over a recessed entrance way on Biddenham Turn past high brick and stone capped pillars which support full height wrought iron gates. The plot is approximately 0.5 acres and is fully enclosed by high beech hedges to the front and mature bushes, shrubs and trees to the rear. To the rear there are three levels of patio and a three tier garden fountain adjacent to a covered barbeque area and a stone built bar. There are two full planning permissions to extend the property further if so desired.

Security 
Throughout the house there is a modern intruder alarm system which has over 30 detection points. The outside of the house is encircled by six high power flood lights on sensors.
