Property description

Tenure: Please confirm if this is a freehold or leasehold property with Foxhall Estate Agents

A well presented and extremely spacious extended four / five bedroom detached house in one of the most secluded locations on the whole of the Grange Farm development. The property benefits from a westerly facing 60' plus rear which is extremely secluded and unoverlooked getting the sun from lunchtime onwards.

This large family house benefits from a single storey pitched roof side extension which has created a 13'5 x 12' double aspect study / bedroom five with windows to the east and southerly aspect making a very sunny room. It has also created a 11'11 x 7' utility room with plumbing for washing machine. There is also an en-suite shower room and separate walk through dressing room.

Additionally, this home has one of the most impressive entrance hallways that the valuer has seen, 17'3 x 9'1 maximum with Karndean flooring which also continues throughout the kitchen and the dining area.

In addition to the extension and the excellent re-configuration, the current owners have overseen an extensive programme of upgrading.

This includes a new boiler in 2009, a new bathroom suite 3 years ago with feature tiling, oak doors, a modern fitted replacement kitchen with extensive range of units and integrated appliances and replacement double glazed windows, doors, soffits and fascias. The current owners have installed a large bespoke built 18' x 9'10 timber cabin / office by Nelson Potters of Woodbridge. This has it's own consumer unit and is supplied with light and power.

The westerly facing garden, much larger than average, also accommodates a timber covered seating area with it's own wood-burner and a decked area currently occupied by a hot tub with it's own 32amp feed from mains.

The property is set at the end of a private driveway off the main part of Butler Smith Gardens. There is driveway parking for upto four vehicles in front of the property and there are a pair of wooden gates to the left which could be moved further back to create additional parking room.
