Why you’ll like it:


Preston Village is a conservation area popular with families and professionals. This unique development was built in the 1950’s and many of the first residents stayed – this maisonette is only on its second owner- which speaks volumes about this welcoming but not intrusive community and its convenient location. Set in leafy gardens, this beautifully designed block is only three storeys high and divided into two halves, so each side has two, two storey apartments with only one below, making it all private and peaceful. The stylish, bridge like entrance is through lovely lawns and opens into a communal hallway which is clearly cared for and the front door to this maisonette is on the right.


Inside is full of light. In a prime position on the south corner, big broad rooms, glass doors and windows in all three external walls combine to ensure that the fabulous orientation of this spacious home is made the most of. A gleaming parquet floor in the hall gives an indication of the quality of the finish and on a practical note, there is a vast cupboard for coats and bags. To your right, at the front of the building is a spacious kitchen/diner with contemporary ivory units topped by sandy Corian, reminding you that the beach is not far away, and the glamorous splash back behind the integrated gas hob and electric oven glitters gold. All of the appliances are integrated for you, so this is a kitchen ready to entertain and two levels of lighting mean that you can choose your mood!


Across the hallway, the parquet floor continues into the sophisticated living room which completely connects with the outside as leafy views over the communal gardens, made private by trees as well as an open vista across this abundantly green valley are brought into the room by the generous floor to ceiling glass doors which slide open to a Juliette balcony ideal for resting elbows on after a hot day at work, whilst you listen to the birdsong. For cooler evenings, there is a fireplace with an open chimney which has fabulous tiles very much of the period.


Upstairs a bright landing has ample storage and at the back, the master bedroom has a wonderful forest feel, looking out across tree tops studded with stately buildings rather than the other way around, which also makes the room very private of course. The restful guest bedroom gazes over the front garden and with the windows wide open you can hear the occasional, comforting rumble of passing trains in the distance, but it is not intrusive. Next door, the bathroom is light and airy with buttercup toned tiles and a modern white suite which has a Mira shower above the bath, and should you wish to change it, the owner has moved the boiler into the hall up here so you could even have an extravagant power shower – think Aqualusso perhaps...?!



Bear in mind:


This bright and spacious home is beautifully convenient and ready to move into.
