Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Versatile city house backing a golf course.


The house has been the subject of a programme of extension and restoration in recent years culminating in a three storey property with versatile accommodation, most of which is orientated to the rear of the house enabling lovely views and backing on to the gardens. The reception hall runs across the front of the house and opens up to a study area fitted with woodblock work benches. Adjoining is a home office finished with a pine floor with windows to the front. The hall extends to the rear of the house with double doors on to the garden and includes a feature staircase with glass balustrade. The rear hall separates a games room and living room which includes a splay bay with views of the gardens and golf course fitted with wood burner, wooden floor and with high ceilings. The principal feature of the ground floor is the beautifully designed kitchen/breakfast room extending the full depth of the property featuring a vaulted ceiling with exposed trusses. The kitchen is fitted with Shaker-style grey units with contrasting granite and woodblock tops anchored around an island unit, again with granite tops and incorporating a breakfast bar. There are many integrated appliances including a Neff double oven, microwave, coffee maker, AEG induction hob and cooker hood, Bosch dishwasher and Fisher & Paykel larder/fridge freezer. The dining area has bifold doors overlooking the gardens and swimming pool which provides a great deal of natural light to the room. There are two cloakrooms on the ground floor and one is incorporated within the laundry/shower room.

The first floor landing is retained by a glass balustrade and is a spacious area enjoying panoramic views of the golf course. The principal bedroom overlooks the gardens and golf course and has an en suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms on this floor, one with en suite, and the other two are served by a family bathroom.

The second floor is an extension to the house creating a great self-contained space ideal for the teenager with two bedroom suites comprising a bedroom, a sitting area and a study area with an adjacent bathroom/W.C.

The house has a wide frontage with an in-and-out drive which also provides parking for several cars. There is a detached double garage with roller shutter door and an adjoining undercroft linking the house to the garage which in turn gives access to the rear gardens. The gardens measure approximately 96 ft x 75 ft (29.26m x 22.86m) and are predominantly lawned with an in-ground trampoline and behind the house there is a large wrap-around terrace ideal for al fresco dining and incorporating an in-ground swimming pool with safety cover and an adjoining pool cabin. A hedgerow at the rear separates the gardens from the golf course with a gate leading into the golf course used by the current owners (this would need formalising for future owners if required).

Mains water, gas and electricity. Mains drainage. Air-source heat pump for swimming pool.
