The Property
Westwood is a generously-proportioned, stone detached house situated in an exclusive development close to Mowden Hall. The property offers an excellent layout with flexible accommodation ideal for modern-day living. Many of the rooms are dual aspect and the everyday garden room and drawing room enjoy views over the private garden.

The front door opens into a porch that leads into the welcoming entrance hall that has wood flooring, stairs leading up to the first floor, gives access to the formal reception rooms and has a door to a cloakroom and WC. Glazed double doors open into the generously-proportioned, dual aspect drawing room which enjoys views over the garden and has a marble fireplace with multi-fuel stove. The dining room, which has a feature marble fireplace fitted with a gas fire, attractive fitted open shelves and cupboards below to both alcoves and a window to the side, provides a superb room for formal entertaining. From the hall steps lead down to the fabulous kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a good range of limed oak units with complementary work surfaces with a 1 bowl stainless steel sink and drainer. An exposed stone inglenook offers space for a range-style cooker and there is plumbing for a dishwasher, space for an American-Style fridge/freezer and ample room for a table and chairs for everyday dining. Attractive slate flooring in the kitchen continues through to the utility room which is fitted with a range of units and Belfast sink; there is a boiler cupboard off the utility room and a door that gives access to outside. To the other side of the kitchen there is an everyday sitting room which is dual aspect and offers flexible space as it is currently used as a home office; high-speed wireless broadband is available. The delightful garden room, which is accessed from both the sitting room and hall, has terracotta tiled floor, glazed French doors leading out to the terrace and a glazed roof lantern that floods the room with natural light. There is also an internal door from the garden room into the attached garage.

Stairs lead from the hall to a half landing with feature arched window and continue to the main landing area which is bathed in light from two windows and a further Velux window. The landing, which gives access to the bedroom and bathroom accommodation, has a shelved airing cupboard and two further storage cupboards. The dual aspect master bedroom has windows offering elevated views over the garden and benefits from an en-suite bathroom with panelled bath, walk-in shower, wash hand basin and WC. There is a further double bedroom with windows to the north which also has en-suite facilities with panelled bath, wash basin and WC. Steps from the main landing lead to two further dual-aspect double bedrooms, both of which benefit from a range of fitted bedroom furniture. These bedrooms are served by a spacious shower room with large shower, twin wash hand basins set in a marble-topped vanity unit with storage below and a WC.

Externally a block paved driveway offers private parking to the side of the house. The attached tandem garage has an electric door and benefits from power and light.

A path leads to the side of the house where there is a paved terrace with border planting, while stone walling and fenced boundaries offer privacy. The main garden, which is south-west facing, is largely laid to lawn with an herbaceous border, together with a selection of mature trees and shrubs. A generous flagstone terrace, which can be accessed through double French doors from the garden room, offers an area to sit and enjoy the peaceful setting and for outdoor entertaining.
