Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The property known as Elkton enjoys an excellent location within Quarry Lane, Kelsall. Quarry Lane is renowned for individuality of property types and this stunning detached residence is an excellent example of its type. Significantly, the house has only had two owners in fifty years which bears testament to the desirability of both the location and the residence itself. In the past few years the present owners have completed a radical scheme of alteration, extension, renovation and improvement so as to create a high quality home that is spacious and versatile in equal measure. Set in grounds of two thirds of an acre, enjoying wonderful views and amazingly private gardens, the house also has the benefit of a good size single storey outbuilding of which more details will be found later in these details.

The property can truly be said to be deceptively spacious offering a breadth of quality and scope of accommodation far beyond what one may originally think from a drive by viewing or initial appearance.

The accommodation opens with an excellent entrance hall which provides a most welcoming introduction to the property. From the entrance hall access can be gained to a cloakroom, study, large utility room, two bedrooms (each with en-suite) and the magnificent open plan kitchen/dining/living area. The kitchen/dining/living area is the unquestionable highlight of the house extending in length to over 33ft and representing a layout and style perfectly equipped to cater for the needs of the modern day family. The kitchen is comprehensively equipped with a range of high quality appliances and units and the open plan nature of the space lends itself perfectly to having both a large table and chairs and a softer seating area. At the far end of the space in the living area double doors open out to a splendid south facing decking/balcony area. As already mentioned the utility room is separately accessed from the entrance hall and is of an excellent size.

At the other end of the house are the first two of the bedrooms. The master bedroom has a superb en-suite bathroom whilst bedroom two is also a spacious double, again with an en-suite. On the lower ground floor there are an impressive range of further rooms. Bedroom three and four both have access to the Jack and Jill en-suite which is of good specification. There is also a further bedroom which could alternatively be used as an office/music room and is of good proportion and has fitted wardrobes. The luxurious family bathroom is a substantial size and has a shower enclosure, bath, two wash hand basins, low level WC and a fantastic choice of tiling. The final surprise in the property is, what is described in these particulars, as bedroom six/family room. This lovely room has light from two sides and direct access to the garden via double doors. It could be used either as a luxurious bedroom or as an additional reception room or indeed could be adapted to suit differing needs through the years.

Externally the property has more than ample off road parking for several vehicles and lovely private gardens that are predominantly lawned but also have within them patio/terrace areas in addition to the south facing decked balcony that is located off the kitchen/dining/living room. The gardens enjoy good levels of seclusion and privacy and yet from the more elevated levels command fantastic and spectacular views.

There is an excellent single storey outbuilding that comprises a double garage and car port. Planning permission was previously in place to convert this to ancillary accommodation and should a purchaser be looking for a property with the potential to create an excellent high quality annexe, this is arguably the perfect opportunity.

This wonderful individual property is offered for sale with no ongoing chain and priced at a level that is sure to attract market attention. Property sales in Kelsall have in recent times thrived due to the increasingly popular primary school located on Flat Lane and the natural feed in to high quality secondary schools in the locality. In addition, some of the areas best countryside can be accessed within strolling distance of the front door and this, combined with the proximity to a range of day to day amenities really does make Kelsall the perfect location. An early viewing is strongly recommended.
