Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Every once in a while a very special property comes to the market and Nyumbani, lives up to this accolade. The name Nyumbani, derives from the Swahili for “home” and this beautiful bungalow was built in the 1970’s to a high specification with a number of craftsman’s touches that adds to its charm and character. An example being the twin barrelled natural wood ceiling in the living room that was hand crafted by a boat builder, giving that nautical nod to the property’s position adjoining Shepperton Marina. The generously proportioned accommodation has a lovely calm, sophisticated atmosphere and its open plan layout is ideal for entertaining with its easy flow and large reception space. However, this is not at the expense of the practicalities for modern day living with a useful boot room off the hall, guest shower/cloakroom and a separate utility room. The outside space plays an integral role within the original design and the extensive use of large windows and doors help create a seamless transition, as well as flooding the rooms with natural light. This is evident from the moment you step through the front door into the wide reception hall that looks straight through to the beautiful rear garden. The 28’ open plan reception room is a stunning room and forms the hub of the home; in the summer the patio doors slide back allowing the large terrace to become an extension to the room. The kitchen has been attractively fitted with a range of contemporary units complemented by light composite worktops that echo the clean uncluttered lines. The ceramic hob, stainless steel cooker hood, and matching Neff Circotherm and separate combination microwave ovens are integrated, along with the dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer. There are three bedrooms; the smallest is currently being used as a study. Both the principal bedrooms are generously sized double rooms, each with its own character. The main bedroom is a lovely light room overlooking the garden with a bank of wardrobes to one side and a beautifully appointed full en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom makes an ideal guest suite being very spacious with extensive built-in wardrobes and a large en-suite shower room. Council Tax Band: G

Garden & Exterior
The grounds and secluded gardens are a spectacular feature of the home, extending to 0.345 acre and enjoying a sunny south westerly aspect. A large terrace runs across the rear inset with a heated and filtered swimming pool and a pool shower/cloakroom adjacent. Adjoining the side of the property is a useful covered patio, which is the perfect area to sit and admire the garden. To one side is a garden chalet that would make an ideal office or gym. The main body of the garden has been beautifully landscaped with extensive lawns bordered by well stocked and established shrub beds planted with a wide variety of specimen shrubs and trees. To the rear is a two tier pond set in a rockery. To the side is a gate that opens onto the private meadow and lake owned by Shepperton Marina. To the western side of the plot is a further arbour covered patio. Next to this is a shed housing the pool equipment with the utility room adjacent. To the front there is extensive parking on the shingle drive, which is enclosed by mature evergreen boundaries. To the side is a double garage with power and light.
