Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Ladywell is set to the south of Gowans Lane and enjoys an exceptionally private and mature plot totally approximately 1.4 acres.
Totally over 3500 sq ft, the accommodation comprises; four/five bedrooms, eye-catching vaulted living room, fitted kitchen through dining space, separate dining room, utility, family bathroom and two further shower/wet rooms. In addition there is ancillary one-bedroom accommodation/office/playroom above the detached four car garage.
This elevated position gives a unique vista to the south and west and over the main garden area. Originally built in the late 1950s but completely refashioned by the current owners, this part stone and part rendered detached dwelling has all its accommodation on a single storey. There are two entrance points from the public highway and ample parking and turning space on the gravel, cobbled and stone flagged driveway areas. The house has a formal front entrance with entrance vestibule opening into the hallway off which the living accommodation can be found.

The kitchen has a fully fitted SieMatic kitchen with full range of Miele appliances and granite work surfaces over. This living kitchen is ‘L’ shaped and has space for both seating and dining either side of the centrally set kitchen area.
Double doors then open into the amazing 32 foot by 20 foot living room which currently houses both dining and sitting and has the benefit of fully glazed aspects beautifully set off by the ash clad frame. The views over the private grounds, and in winter far further afield, are truly superb. This really is a spectacular space especially with the impressive vaulted ceiling. This is a room for all seasons, as the gas fired feature fire place and air conditioning unit allow all year round use.

The main house benefits from four/five bedrooms of which three are double. The main bedroom suite has a separate dressing room with a wonderful private view through a full length window as well as an en-suite shower room. The three other bedrooms share a shower room and a very theatrical bathroom with exceptionally high ceiling, stained glass window and Villeroy and Boch jacuzzi forming the feature part of this bathroom suite. Throughout, the bathrooms have ‘Philippe Starck’ fittings which fit well with the stylish property.
The property is completed by the library/bedroom 5 with twin aspects and a fine array of solid ash bookcases as well as a utility room with fitted units, washer and dryer, plumbing and stable door to the rear as well as a separate cloakroom comprising WC and basin.

The ancillary accommodation is accessed via the garage and to the first floor can be found a bedroom with en-suite shower room comprising shower, WC and basin. There is a living space with a kitchenette to one wall, velux windows and picture window back towards the house. This useful space could be utilised for a variety of purposes including a games room or home office. It benefits from having a separate central heating system.
The garage itself is a four car garage and could offer potential for further ancillary accommodation subject to planning. The garage is stone fronted and rendered to all other sides with a ’Hormann’ electronically operated door and separate boiler.
The grounds of the property are discrete to the front. The parking and turning area on the driveway give way to a timber shed and are shrouded in privacy from the mature vegetation to the front. Step around the property or view the remaining grounds from the amazing living space and wonderful natural space awaits.

The central lawn is flanked by mature trees and shrubs, there is also a pond area with timber duck house and a small summer house set centrally upon the lawn. Back up at the higher level can be found two patios, one either side of the main living space and each giving a slightly different vista but both benefitting from a south westerly facing aspect.

For those that enjoy easy access to the county motorway network, privacy and seclusion but yet wish to have a versatile family home that will serve throughout the years and change with the family itself then Ladywell has it all.
