Tenure: Freehold

With a sleek rendered finish with lead coloured windows and doors to match the re-slated roofs, this property has much initial kerb appeal, whilst internally has been planned to provide large and bright accommodation to suit the modern lifestyle. No 9 Lache Lane is approached via an attractive block paved driveway offering plentiful parking leading to an integral, larger than average single garage.

The internal accommodation is accessed via a grand reception hall with a lead coloured composite double glazed entrance door, with the front of the property enjoying triple glazed contemporary coloured UPVC windows and the vaulted entrance hall enjoying a ceiling atrium with floor to ceiling picture window, with its own remote operated blind. There is a solid oak and glass staircase providing access to the first floor with black limestone flagged flooring which continues to a fully fitted white high gloss closet/cloaks cupboard with oak and glass double doors providing access to the reception rooms. The two large open plan living rooms consist of a drawing room, which benefits from a cast iron wood burning stove on a granite base together with majority width UPVC bi-fold doors which provide access to a large timber decked seating area. There is a further square arch to a sitting room which has a front aspect and a combined area of 35ft deep overall. There is also a separate excellent-sized dining room and a sumptuously appointed ground floor bathroom with a modern contemporary suite complemented by 'Grohe' chrome bathroom fittings finished with porcelain wall tiles. A particular feature of this property is the heart of the home, a stunning-sized living kitchen, being over 25ft wide, with a central island and an extensive fitted range of contemporary timber units complemented by granite work surfaces and splashbacks. The kitchen benefits from a fitted double-width range with a separate 'Bosch' stainless steel edged electric oven, continued limestone flagged flooring and a pleasant living/family area which has further bi-fold doors which provide secondary access to the decked seating area. Off the kitchen is a utility room with access to the side of the property.

On the first floor, the property benefits from five double-sized bedrooms, with bedrooms one and two enjoying large en-suites which echo the high standard of finish found throughout this property. Bedrooms three and four share a Jack and Jill en-suite and there is extensive fitted bedroom furniture to four bedrooms, with bedroom five being fitted with attractive wood effect built-in study furniture and bookshelves.

Externally, the property has a front walled boundary with inset timber panelled fencing. The rear garden benefits from a southerly aspect with a large timber decked patio area overlooking an extensive lawn with Indian stone pathways, low maintenance shrubs and a summerhouse. The property is intended to be sold with no ongoing chain, and we would highly recommend an internal viewing to appreciate this eye-catching modern detached home situated so close to the city centre whilst being surrounded by high capital value properties.
