Over the past two years our client has undertaken a total refurbishment/renovation of the house. Fundamental alterations have included moving the driveway from the rear so that the property is now approached via the front through a stylish and imposing electronic gated entrance. The exterior of the house has been totally renovated, a substantial terrace has been installed immediately adjacent to the rear of the house with magnificent views over the landscaped gardens. The gardens themselves have been totally remodelled. Many of the older and overgrown bushes have been removed and a dead area has been created with a substantial timber garden shed suitable for storage of large garden implements. The lawn has been completely remodelled and now offers an expansive area stretching away to the rear of the property with far reaching views. The kitchen has been hand painted, retaining the top quality Smallbone units and some fundamental alterations at first floor level have included the installation of a laundry room, substantial re-decoration of the property and the installation of a Biomass heating system in short no stone has been left unturned. With 2300 square feet of Loft space ripe for conversion!
