Description

Most conveniently placed just a short drive from the city centre within a quiet and leafy residential cul-de-sac, this exceptionally fine modern home was first built in 1995 and is beautifully presented with under floor heating throughout. The house has the benefit of a long private driveway leading to a turning area and garaging providing combined parking for numerous vehicles. The property enjoys the most magnificent views across open fields to the rear. Included in the sale is part ownership of the field behind. A notable feature of the house is the exceptionally spacious and bright accommodation with many of the rooms flooded with a good deal of natural sunlight. An enclosed entrance lobby with oak flooring opens to the generous inner hallway with cloakroom and doors to the kitchen and the principal reception rooms. The house has a simple and uncluttered elegance with the natural wood theme on the ground flooring incorporating matching oak skirting boards, architraves and internal doors. During the course of their 15 year ownership, the current owners have ensured that the house is kept to a very high decorative standard and external maintenance will be minimal with double glazed windows throughout. The dual aspect drawing room has a living flame gas fire with decorative oak surround and granite hearth and the room enjoys a very pleasant and private outlook across the gently sloping lawned front gardens. At the far side of the hallway is a formal dining room again with outlook to the front. A delightful third reception room can be accessed from both the kitchen and drawing room with double doors opening to a large half glazed garden room. The accommodation within the house flows exceptionally well and is perfect for those that enjoy entertaining large numbers of family and friends with the ability for guests to circulate freely between ground floor receptions or close off as separate areas if so desired. The solid oak kitchen is well appointed with an extensive run of wall and base units with a range of modern appliances including an integrated twin Bosch oven, dishwasher and ceramic glazed hob set into the granite work surfaces. An enamelled Villeroy and Boch sink is set beneath a large picture window which commands far reaching views across the gardens and fields towards distance townhouses on the Clifton hillside, Cabot Tower and the Wills Memorial Building. To the rear of the kitchen is a dedicated utility room, again with plenty of storage and work spaces and half glazed doorway to the rear patio and garden. As a perfect space for those that value their independence and peace and quiet, the large study is hidden away to the rear off the utility and the garage with the option of visitors to the office entering without having to go through the main family areas of the house.

A most individual and substantial oak staircase leads to the wide first floor landing that runs almost the full width of the property. Set off the landing is a huge walk in drying room/airing cupboard that also houses the Villavent circulation system, the Vaillant wall mounted gas central heating boiler and a megaflow hot water tank. The house also has a water softening system. The master suite is most impressive with dual aspect windows to both front and rear of the property - the panorama across the countryside and city is simply breathtaking. A five piece en suite is fully tiled with a hand basin set into bespoke vanity storage units with separate bath and shower cubicle with Hansgrohe shower. The guest suite is located at the opposite end to the master also enjoying fine country views and again with a large en suite bathroom. This bathroom may also be accessed from bedroom three providing the option of a Jack and Jill suite. Bedrooms four and five share the third bathroom to the front of the house.

Highfield is set within lovely mature gardens, the perfect size for a house of this stature, providing colour, shape and privacy. There are a series of very well pruned mixed shrubs that include Hebes, Conifers and Choisya and a wooden storage shed supplementing the large detached garage with electric roller shutter security door. The paved patio adjoins the rear elevation and is a delightful space for al fresco dining, largely sheltered from prevailing winds and the perfect spot for enjoying the country views. The house benefits from pedestrian access to either side.

Given how close to the city the property lies, the sense of openness and extent of the views will undoubtedly come as a surprise to many on first visit and was without doubt the most significant selling factor when the current owners viewers themselves having deciding to buy virtually on the spot!

A special home and a fine alterative to city living without compromising on convenience for day to day living.
