This lovely family home occupies a prime plot, tucked off a spur of Folleigh Lane and from its elevated position commanding exceptional and far reaching views over rooftops to the rolling hillsides beyond. The wide range of amenities in the village are within easy reach with great transport links to the city centre and a path from the foot garden directly down to a nearby bus stop. The home sits virtually centrally within its very large grounds which have been very thoughtfully designed and beautifully planted to create a series of seating areas to capture the sunshine throughout various times of the day. A long gated driveway provides parking for many vehicles in addition to a substantial detached double garage with staircase to the first floor level offering wonderful potential for those seeking to create an annexe, gym or home office suite. The home has been significantly remodelled and improved since being first built in the 1960s. The property offer truly first class accommodation that such a fine location deserves.
To the front of the house, a sweeping pathway leads up to a gentle flight of steps to the entrance hallway with staircase to first floor and useful storage cupboard under with cloakroom. Original parquet flooring adds a sense of warmth and interest to the house that runs into the adjacent sitting room. This has a wonderful outlook with a dual aspect and sliding doors on to the sheltered rear terrace. A Chesney multi fuel stove with an elegant slate hearth with carved stone surround is a pleasing focal point to the room. Set to the far side of this sitting room is a substantial home office which incorporates a shower room with elegant fittings and marble work tops. It should be noted that this area of the house was designed as a ground floor bedroom suite with its own entrance from the side making it perfect for a dependent relative or fully independent teenager. It also offers great opportunities for those seeking to generate rental income without compromising the privacy of the main part of the home. A good sized dining room is located to the rear of the entrance hallway with a nice outlook across the rear garden. As with many families, the current owners tend to use their open plan kitchen/family area as an informal hub at the centre of the home. It is well designed with two distinct areas – a cooking and food preparation section with built AEG appliances including a stainless steel oven, microwave cooker, five burner gas hob and dishwasher. A cupboard houses the gas central heating boiler and security system. The kitchen is fitted with a range of smart built in cupboards painted in subtle muted tones, granite work surfaces and plenty of space for both relaxed seating and dining. The adjacent utility room is a much larger than average size and has a doorway leading in to a useful covered passage way which is the perfect area for storage of muddy boots and outdoor wear.
In addition to the ground floor bedroom/office, there are four further bedrooms at first and second floor level. Every one of the bedrooms enjoys a lovely outlook over gardens or across rooftops and houses to the Dundry hills and the open countryside beyond. The house offers a choice of a principal bedrooms. The first floor en suite bedroom offers a full run of wardrobes the length of one wall and the second floor has been tastefully converted to create a most impressive bedroom suite with a number of windows allowing the room to be flooded with natural light. This room features a dedicated wet room with his and her basins and finished in fashionable natural tones with marble tops and underfloor heating. The family bathroom and second en suite have smart marble finishes to floors, wall panelling/tiles and vanity units.
Without doubt, the gardens are a very special feature of this property. To the front of the property, a few steps lead up to a pedestrian gate opening in to the raised lawned garden with a sandstone flagged pathway winding its way to the front of the property. Wide well established shrub boarders provide interest and privacy and immediately adjoining the property is the sunny terrace from which to enjoy not only the garden vistas but a glimpse of the distant countryside. The gardens to the rear are equally attractive, perfectly safe for those with young children or pets and cleverly designed to create a number of outdoor “rooms” in which to sit and capture the sun at different times of the day. The garage is situated at the head of this garden. Further sheds supplement this storage in additional to yet further space including a log store to the side of the property.
