Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Constructed in the 1950’s, the property has been extensively improved and extended over the years, and now offers versatile accommodation that would adapt to occupation by relatives or staff if required.

Approached through electrically operated gates, there is a large block paved drive with a parking area to the front of the house, the drive sweeping around to the side to further parking and giving access to the garaging.  There is a triple garage and a double garage.  There are lawns to the front and side, with mature trees and shrubbery screening the property from the road.  There is a video monitoring system for the gates and for security around the outside of the property, in addition to the internal security system.

The reception hall welcomes you to the main part of the property, with European oak flooring, bespoke hand fitted cabinets and a traditional fireplace with real flame gas fire.  At the rear of the hall is an area used for breakfast to benefit from the morning sunshine through the French doors which open to the rear garden.  There are twin doors leading from the hall to the dining room which also has French doors to the rear, with further doors through to the lounge, both of which have open fires.

The heart of the house is the large, open plan kitchen with sitting and dining areas.  There is an extensive range of oak cabinets with granite surfaces, a four oven gas fired Aga and integrated appliances including full sized Siemens over, combination oven and five ring ceramic hob.  There is a walk in pantry off, and a lobby area with access to the rear garden and to the laundry/utility room.

The main stairs lead from the reception hall, with a cloakroom and office off.  On the first floor of the original wing of the house are a total of four double bedrooms all with fitted wardrobes, one of which has a dressing room.  The master suite has an en-suite bathroom, and his and hers dressing rooms.  One of the guest bedrooms also has an en-suite shower room, and the remaining two bedrooms share a bathroom and shower room.

A secondary entrance hall connects the original accommodation to the later wing.  There is a gymnasium with fitted mirrored cupboards, WC and hand basin with access beyond to the garaging.  An inner lobby has a fully fitted cloakroom off, a further WC, and an office with fitted office furniture, and a store room beyond.  This finally leads through to an impressive winter living room and games room, with wood panelling to walls and a traditional fireplace which makes it a cosy room despite its size.  There is a scullery off, and a secondary staircase leading to four additional double bedrooms and a single, the largest of which is used as a second guest room and has an en-suite shower room, walk in wardrobe and seating area. A separate bathroom and a shower room serve the other two bedrooms. All the double bedrooms are fitted with built in wardrobes.

Reached through the winter living room is the indoor heated swimming pool which has patio doors opening to the gardens.  The pool has a jet stream.  There are changing facilities including two shower areas and a WC, and a plant room housing the boiler, pump and filter, a heat exchange unit and the jet stream.

The rear gardens enjoy a south and easterly aspect.  There is a large paved terrace stretching the length of the house, with external lighting, a rockery with fountain and concealed lighting, and steps down to a lower patio area.  There are lawns with mature shrubbery to beds and borders, and a variety of mature specimen trees providing privacy and shade.  There is a gravel sitting area within a secluded secret garden surrounded by shrubbery.  An irrigation system serves many of the beds and borders around the property.  There is a greenhouse and lean to wood store.


We are given to understand that the tenure of the property is Freehold.


Mains gas, water, electricity and drainage are connected.  Gas fired central heating is installed.  Broadacres also has the benefit of a private borehole water supply in addition to a mains water supply.
