Located within the heart of this vibrant town this quite wonderful home benefits from the unusual combination of traditional external design coupled with quite striking contemporary features and technology. The property itself was award winning when constructed in 2006 and contains many cutting edge systems that enable it to gain a prestigious and rarely achieved B rating for its energy efficiency.
The accommodation is currently arranged over three floors, with the ground floor boasting three reception areas, kitchen breakfast room and a utility room. The six bedrooms are divided between the upper two floors and are served by three ensuites, a family bathroom and a dressing room to the master suite. The most striking design feature of the property is the central hall atrium. This ‘open’ area extends from the ground to the top of the second floor where a bank of roof windows allow natural light to stream through the core of the house. The staircase that hugs the circumference of this area has been constructed of oak and glass – a theme that extends to both upper floor landings. The calibre of the fixtures and fittings throughout are of undoubted quality and durability, yet have been cleverly sourced ensuring that their cutting edge design has enduring influences of traditional styling.
The attention to detail of the property is extended to the garage building. At three bays wide, this building with its specialist security doors will offer peace of mind to those wanting to securely house their cherished vehicles. Above the garage is a large studio with W.C. constructed to the same quality as the main house. This area could make an exceptional home office or used informally as a teenagers’ den or games room.
