A beautiful home
This spectacular home will thrill house hunters who appreciate modern design and crave space and privacy.
Chestnut House not only boasts a discerning address, it ticks every box for even the most particular of families. There is the grand entrance and contemporary facade that will set your heart racing before you have even opened the front door. There are 1.5 acres of gardens - not too much but more than enough. Inside the main house there are expansive open-plan spaces for sociable family life, mixed with quiet intimate rooms for privacy. Guests will always be welcome to stay, although they won't want to leave their secluded guest house "The Dairy". There is a large detached garage block for precious cars and then there is The Barn with planning permission to link to the main house - so there is even potential to put your own stamp on the property. This is a wonderful home in a stunning location.
The downstairs is perfect for the modern family. The first thing you notice is the sense of space and the connection to the garden and countryside beyond. The vast entrance hall has been used as a dining hall and a sitting room because of its grand sense of style created by the vaulted ceiling. We love the wide trifold doors that can be flung open to create the indoor/outdoor lifestyle that we all crave. Off the hall there is a huge kitchen/dining/sitting room. The whole family can be in here at the same time doing their own thing - dad cooking up a culinary masterpiece, mum catching up on emails, the kids finishing off their homework and the dogs running in and out of the kitchen to the garden. This room is the central hub of Chestnut House.
There are two further reception rooms on the other side of the ground floor. The living room at the front of the house is ideal as a cinema room where you can curl up with the latest Netflix series. The sitting room at the rear of the house has a formal vibe with the open fire and doors leading into the garden. This room is currently one large space but was two rooms when the property was built and can be easily reverted.
If you want more space then you are able to create it - planning permission has been granted to link the main house to The Barn. The design for the link is for an oak framed walkway with glass, looking out to the garden, leading to The Barn. The extension could be for more living space, bedrooms or a gym and swimming pool and office (see plans and elevations). Planning Permission has also been granted for the addition of an Orangery off the Dining Area (see plans) and The Dairy has permission to be extended (see plans)The options are endless and can be bespoke to the new owners of Chestnut House.
