Words are not enough to describe this home. It is incredible.
Can a house be clever? This one is. Modernised, improved and styled throughout, 11 Bellfield is now a spacious and beautiful home with every mod con you could desire. You will be proud to call this home.
We aren’t often speechless when we go into a home but our jaws literally hit the parquet floor when we saw what the team of crafts-people had done to every aspect of the space and garden. You can see the home is special as you pull up onto the gravel drive (the kerb has even been dropped to ensure parking is easy). The new porch, the smart grey front door and the double glazing set this house apart from the crowd. It’s inside that things start to get exciting…
The newly built porch has a tiled floor, lots of hanging space for coats and lots of room for wellies, push chairs and the dog. Open the internal door and WOW! The solid oak parquet floored hall way is bright and spacious. There are cleverly installed cupboards in every nook that keep the home clutter free. The walls are painted in Farrow & Ball Wimbourne White and Downpipe and the wallpaper is Cole and Son Cow Parsley. It’s the little things that count.
When you finally get into the kitchen you need a sit down to appreciate the space and the quality of the finish. Mandarin Stone slate floors with underfloor heating to keep the toes warm. The kitchen units have all been handmade and finished with beautifully painted doors. There are cupboards everywhere, a floating island and a large, bright dining area with space for a table to easily seat six people. The glass, French doors and full width windows looking out to the beautifully landscaped garden frame the kitchen and there is that much coveted feeling of bringing the outdoors in.
The garden is south facing and so lovely and warm even in the winter and so, so peaceful. The landscapers have filled the garden with beautiful plants, our favourites are the erysimum, which flower 10 months of the year, Annabelle hydrangeas, which are beautiful pendulous cream blooms. Lots of lavender and salvia for beautiful smells and all plants have been selected to encourage wildlife into the garden. It was all selected around a colour scheme so everything flowering is either purple, lime green, yellow or white.
The garden is split into several areas; “Living Room” with pergola, decking and space for outdoor sofas. “Dining Room” with stone patio and space for an alfresco dining table. “Lawn” with path to the shed of all sheds. The shed is better than a shed, it has a concrete and brick base, wood clad and insulated walls and a tiled roofed room. It could be office, playroom, gym or a store or workshop.

The living room has the must have accessory; a log burner. This particular log burner is a top of the range English Manufactured Firebelly with the biggest clean burn viewing window so it feels like an open fire with all the benefits of the log burner. The slate hearth in Cornish slate was made to order and looks stunning. The floor Atkinson & Kirby Oak engineered floor boards. The walls are painted Slipper Satin and Off Black. There are big trifold doors leading to the garden and wide windows at the front, which flood the room with light.
The clever theme continues through a small door off the living room, where you find a study, a utility area and a downstairs WC and more storage. While the Kitchen and living room steal the show, these three spaces allow for modern living and have so much storage that the rest of the house can be tidy. Every space has been brilliantly utilised and the interior styling and decor are straight out of Living Etc. magazine.
