This modern, spacious, detached five bedroom family home has been completely renovated throughout. The fifth bedroom is situated on the ground floor and lends itself perfectly to a family looking for ancillary accommodation. A show stopping open plan kitchen dining area has been thoughtfully designed at the rear of the property to optimise the views out over the garden. From the dining room, you step out onto raised decking which provides the perfect environment for alfresco dining and entertaining. The Victorian style conservatory sits nicely at the end of the lounge providing panoramic views across the garden.
Originally built in the late 1950’s, this extensively refurbished property is situated perfectly on its plot within the sought-after area of Leverstock Green. From the carriage driveway and entrance porch, its open hallway provides convenient access to all other areas of the home. The principal reception room is the dual aspect large living room, with its centre piece, an ultra-contemporary Gazco fireplace. This is controlled by a thermostatic remote and provides mood-enhancing illumination whether set to natural amber or one of the other atmospheric colour choices. The study area is tucked away off of the living room providing a more peaceful working environment with views out over the driveway.
The main feature of this property is its fabulous kitchen diner providing an ideal environment for both formal and informal entertaining. The well-equipped kitchen has been completed in a contemporary style and comprises stylish eye and base level units with a contrasting quartz work surface. The kitchen offers generous storage and the design of the breakfast bar makes this a very functional space for a family to enjoy. The kitchen leads to a separate well-planned utility room and also provides access to the car port.
The spacious first floor galleried landing provides access to four of the five bedrooms and stylishly presented family bathroom. All bedrooms are flooded with natural light from the large windows allowing for a raised outlook either out onto the rear garden or across the front driveway. The bedrooms are extremely generous in size and either benefit from built in storage or most certainly have the space for storage to be either free standing and fitted to the specification of a new owner’s taste and design.
What was once the integral garage has been separated up into what is now the useful and well-designed utility room and a storage facility. This storage area is entered via the electric garage door to the front of the property and houses the gas boiler. Megaflo hot water system, water softener and fuse board. This space offers plenty of room to store less regularly used household items, bikes, golf clubs or other sports equipment depending on the needs of the family.
The garden is very attractively laid out with its large raised decking area with access down onto the large lawn area and summerhouse. Natural hedgerow surrounds the garden giving this outside space its privacy from its neighbours.
To the front, the property enjoys a carriage driveway entrance allowing off-road parking for numerous cars. To the side of the property there is a car port which also provides access to both the side and rear of the property. This area is currently used for storage.
