Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This very impressive family home originally built in the mid 1920s provides something for everyone. If you have a large family there are five delightful double bedrooms. If you enjoy leisure and pleasure activities there is a stunning gym complex. If you want to work from home there is a well fitted study as well as a brick built outbuilding that could become a separate office. However if you need to commute to London it is only half a mile to the station that can whisk you to St Pancras in under an hour and it is not far to the Channel Tunnel.

Two sets of handcrafted electronic wrought iron gates lead to the double garage and block paved frontage where you can park half a dozen cars. The property exudes a warm and friendly ambience that continues once you walk into the hall with its natural stone flooring that flows into the breakfast area and kitchen with its handmade pine units, inset Aga and adjacent utility room.

The stunning ‘all- year-round' conservatory has access to the terrace and an amazing koi carp pond that continues into the garden. There is a large formal dining room and an elegant sitting room with an ornamental cast iron fireplace, the study and a cloakroom. Upstairs is a family bathroom and three double bedrooms including the main bedroom with its fitted bedroom furniture and contemporary en suite shower. On the second floor there are two double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and a shower room.

The easy-to-maintain secluded garden includes large block paved patio areas and a pathway around the lawn and shrub borders to the double wood gates leading to the front of the property and the separate brick built building. The leisure complex includes a large gym, therapy pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, a steam room and cloakroom. There are alarm systems and fast broadband as well as solar thermal panels heating the house and gym complex plus an automatic feeder and sophisticated pond filtration system for the carp.

What the Owner says:

We have lived here for 21 years and have thoroughly enjoyed bringing up our family in this lovely house. However the family have grown up so we feel it is time to downsize. Over the years we have built the conservatory as well as the gym which has been a real delight for friends and family alike.
