A stunning home
We all crave a house that will provide space for the whole family - somewhere that we can open the door and instantly make it into our home. This three storey house, in the pretty village of Berwick, East Sussex is an ideal home that has been cleverly designed and beautifully decorated. From the moment you pull the car onto the large gravel driveway you appreciate that no expense has been spared and modern life has been considered.
When you walk through the front door the first thing you notice is the space. The entrance hall is wide and has room to dump bags, coats and shoes. The hallway leads to a vast open-plan kitchen that is worthy of the pages of an interior design magazine. We love the central island where you can stand and prepare family meals whilst looking out through the bifold doors to the stunning garden and countryside views beyond. From the kitchen you are connected to the rest of the downstairs and life flows through the kitchen, which gives the home a sociable vibe. There is space for a huge dining table and there are endless work surfaces and cupboards to hide everything away to allow you to live a clutter free lifestyle.
There are three further living spaces downstairs. The conservatory is bright and spacious with gorgeous garden views and an easy connection to the patio. The living room has a big sofa, large TV and a big log burner. We can imagine the whole family curling up with Netflix and a bag of popcorn each! The reception room at the front of the house is perfect for a study or a playroom. It could also have a sofa bed and double up as a guest bedroom for sleep overs.
A utility room is vital for modern life - you need somewhere to drop washing, dirty dogs, football boots and wet coats. This utility room is perfect. There is a door to the outside so you can come straight in if you have been out with the dog or if you want to hang the washing out. There are loads of cupboards and hooks to keep things neat and tidy. There is also a downstairs cloak room.
One of the many highlights of this home is the new garden building. This is no ordinary shed or boring garage. This is a beautifully constructed outbuilding with three rooms, clad in burnt larch and built to the highest standards. The first room has full width bi-fold doors and is currently used as a gym. There is a TV socket, electrics and all the mod cons to use it as an office, cinema, art studio or a yoga room. The other two rooms are great store rooms where you can hide everything from tins of Farrow and Ball paint to the kids bikes.
