Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac, 10 Beech Close stands proudly in a generous corner plot. Skilfully extended by the current owners in an architectural style which compliments the natural brick and clay tile of the original property, this is truly a character family home which presents superbly. There is a lovely extended entrance hallway which has travertine flagstone tiles and underfloor heating. The original staircase runs perpendicular and there is a large custom made cupboard for storage. At the rear, the double storey wing extension provides a stunning vaulted kitchen/diner and family room with the master bedroom suite above. Huge green oak beams and posts frame the structure and exposed oak ceiling joists all go to create an attractive barn style atmosphere. Natural light pours in from glazed roof panels crafted into the oak frame. Substantial oak joinery doors and windows provide vistas and access to the patio and lawned gardens. The floor is oak boarded, again with underfloor heating. Painted in contrasting shades of grey to compliment the dark granite worktops and inset glass 5 burner hob, the handmade kitchen further adds to the overall traditional yet contemporary feel. There is a central island/breakfast bar housing a double butler’s sink, concealed bins and a built in dishwasher. There is also a stainless steel double oven/microwave and warming drawer, space for an American fridge/freezer and a generous built in larder cupboard. The separate rectangular sitting room to the right of the hallway has the original parquet flooring and recessed fireplace and has been modified with the same oak doors and windows to create a uniform look on the rear elevation. To the left of the hallway is the study with views to the front.

Upstairs, a large landing gives access to the first floor bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom is spectacular, continuing in the same theme as the kitchen/diner below with a high roof vaulted ceiling, oak floorboards and huge oak framed corner window allowing again for plenty of natural light and continuing in the barn style theme. A well designed dressing room leads into the private en-suite shower room. The family bathroom is light and spacious with a generous sized recessed bath and separate walk in shower. A neatly curved staircase from the landing leads up to the second floor and opens out immediately into a landing/study area from which one can access the fifth bedroom again with vaulted ceiling and dormer windows.

Garden & Exterior 
The approach to the house is welcoming with a wide drive way nicely landscaped with mature shrubs and space for a curved bench under the oak framed porch. At the rear, the patio extends away from the house with an ornamental pond complete with water feature and rockery. The garden has an extensive area tapering at the furthest point where a substantial double glazed timber clad storage cabin with cedar shingle roof and a pretty summer house with electrical power can be found. In addition, there are two further garden sheds all in all, providing comprehensive outside storage. The garden is very well maintained with mature fruit trees, silver birch trees and bamboo plants together with well stocked flowerbeds. Also worthy of note, is that the sale of the property a share of the ownership of a field of c10 acres adjacent to the Close and in view from the upstairs front aspect which has now been tied up in perpetuity to protect it from development.
