Description

Built by the current owners in 1989, Dalarna House is named after the Swedish town in which the components for the house were constructed. The property has been designed to exacting standards and has some interesting design details to include tilting windows and liberal use of hard wood.

The property is approached off River Lane, where there is access to the double garage and driveway parking. There is a side entrance to the property at this lower ground floor level (accessed via the garage), which, if required, would enable the owners of the house to create a self-contained floor.

From the driveway a short flight of steps lead to the ground floor level where the main entrance hall is located. On the right of the hall is a large sitting room which has doors to a decked area and path at the side of the property.

On the left there is a dining room and adjacent study, both of which have access to a balcony overlooking the front of the property. The kitchen and utility are at the rear of the house, and have excellent storage in the form of base and wall units. A family bathroom completes the accommodation on this floor.

On the first floor (in addition to a snug off the half-landing) there are three bedrooms, a family bathroom and large landing (with airing cupboard). The master bedroom features a walk-in wardrobe and has windows overlooking the side and front of the property. Bedrooms 2 and 3 also have built-in cupboards providing excellent storage.

The lower ground floor (accessed via the main staircase or through its own entrance in the garage) comprises a fourth bedroom, a shower room and a kitchen. This space could easily be incorporated into the main accommodation or used as a separate suite.

The gardens at Dalarna House run from a tiered terrace at the rear of the house, to the side and wind round to the front. The elevated position makes the outside space a wonderful spot in which to relax or entertain.
