Beth thinks:
Generous proportions and attention to detail make an enviable combination

Set way back from the road, behind a gated entrance, stands Chimneyside; an extended 1940's family home, which beautifully combines timeless elegance with contemporary style.

Beth loves:
The elegance, décor and stylish touches

Pull into the incredibly spacious driveway and you’ll find plenty of parking for all the family, as well as guests, and there’s a garage to keep a vintage little number warm and dry.

Cream render and smart grey windows set the modernity tone. The stylish front door, incorporating glazed sidelights, provides a stunning entrance to the bright hallway. There’s a refitted cloakroom here and a utility room just off the garage, for all manner of household essentials.

Decorated in sophisticated tones, the muted hues will have your shoulders dropping in no time. Chimneyside has been lovingly finished to the highest of standards throughout, and it shows.

The luxurious breakfast kitchen will knock your socks off. Clean lines are facilitated by the extensive array of chic cabinets and complementary granite worktops. White tiles contrast with the slate grey units, and there’s tiling underfoot as well. Meanwhile, a range of integrated appliances, including an eye-level oven and combi microwave oven, making cooking just that bit easier.

Kick back and relax or enjoy supper together at the dining table. Either way, you won’t miss any of the action. Open plan with a seamless flow, it’s simply a gorgeous space you’ll gravitate towards at any time of the day. There’s ample room for an American-style fridge freezer to keep those sodas chilled and double French doors open onto the extensive patio outside, streaming light and air into the home.

The log burning stove emits a warm glow as you enter the bright family room, with its curvaceous bay window. Curl up with your favourite novel, a four-legged companion in tow, and let the world go by.

In the capacious lounge, a contemporary fireplace with a further electric stove takes pride of place whilst picture windows and central French doors lead out to the picturesque garden. There’s an adjacent study, with ultrafast broadband, making an ideal home office or just somewhere quiet to catch up on the admin.

A central landing on the first floor features a stunning atrium-style roof with natural light radiating from the inset sun pipe. There’s access to the loft here – a great, warm space thanks to swathes of insulation and there’s lighting too.

With a choice of five good-sized bedrooms, you are spoilt for choice. The two largest can be found at the rear and boast Juliette balconies to make the very most of the views across the garden and vista.

The master bedroom is sublime and features fitted wardrobes and a luxury en-suite with generous shower and contemporary white suite. Next door, the second bedroom also features an equally lovely en-suite, and the three additional bedrooms are to the front.

There’s a spacious family bathroom, again with a contemporary suite, which includes both a bath and a shower for either a long soak (just add bubbles) or a quick ‘I’m in a hurry’ refresh.

Outside, the rear garden is wonderfully private, with just the occasional neigh from the horses in the paddock behind. Take the weight off your feet on the garden swing underneath the pergola or just potter about tending to the shrubs and trees. There’s a full width patio area for those all-important summer soirées and a long lawn for games, fun and good times.
