Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Hidden away behind wrought iron gates on an exclusive plot offering complete privacy, Beechways is a special secret. Its single storey construction and the privacy provided by mature trees add to the discreet feel, yet once inside it's a property that's anything but modest. During the last 20 years it has undergone significant extension and modernisation giving outstanding family accommodation, leisure facilities and space for entertaining. However, the size and scale of the property means there is still plenty of potential for further development. In addition to the main house, there is a detached two-bedroom bungalow providing self-contained accommodation for family/visitors, work/studio space or alternately generating additional income. All the family can enjoy the superb indoor swimming pool, which is part of an amazing and complete leisure wing that includes a hot tub, sauna, steam room, a gym, bar, a relaxation area, changing facilities and a games room, also a side door conveniently leads onto the decking, bbq area and garden. The principal rooms in the main house are of generous proportions, with maple flooring running throughout. The lounge is particularly large with several sitting areas and both a gas fire for quick heat and an open fire to create cosy warmth. It leads open plan into the dining area. The double aspect space can be divided but can also be utilised as an enviable entertainment space. To the front is a similarly large conservatory that leads out to the garden and extensive block paved area. The contemporary dining kitchen is fitted with an excellent range of white, high gloss units and built-in appliances, and has direct access to the leisure area. The five bedrooms are all large or good size doubles. Two bedrooms are positioned to one side of the house and share a bathroom, while the others are located together near the leisure suite. The master benefits from a bay window to the front and a generous en suite bathroom. There is also a study or playroom and a third bathroom. The gated entrance opens onto an extensive drive and block paved parking and turning area, lined by trees with gardens to either side and leading to a car port and double garage.
