THE PROPERTY

Imposing and double gable fronted it is easy to appreciate the impressive style of Sycamore House from the moment you arrive.

The aspect at the front of the property is open and offers a far reaching view across farmers fields and rolling countryside towards the horizon. At the rear a post and rail boundary fence has purposely been established at a lower level to retain an outlook over neighbouring paddock land at the rear. Views, especially from the first floor are captivating and ever changing with the seasons.

The frontage of the plot is a generous 23m and it is here that you will find a large block paved driveway with turn that leads to the detached double garage. As you approach the property's entrance you are greeted with a well-kept-lawn and manicured flower borders before taking shelter under the open Oak framed porch.

A large reception hallway leads through to the heart of the house at the rear, an extensive open plan kitchen/diner. This has an impressive footprint and is packed full of high-end appliances within its professional design. It is an extremely social space that opens out to the South facing rear garden and includes moulded Corian work surfaces, a large central island and integral NEFF appliances such as two ovens, a combination microwave/oven, coffee machine, tall fridge, tall freezer, dishwasher, wine cooler, undermounted sink with chrome tap and a five ring hob with extractor fan over.

Also at the rear of the house is an elegantly dressed dual-aspect living room that also opens out to the sandstone patio at the rear of the property. Luxury carpet is underfoot here and the central focal feature is the log burner with sandstone heath and mantle.

At the front of the property there are two further large and flexible reception rooms currently utilised as a playroom and a study. Both rooms have sash bay windows to the front elevation and engineered Oak flooring. These rooms alongside a ground floor cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.


Upstairs you will find five double bedrooms, two of these with their own splendid ensuites. The principal bedroom incorporates a dressing area too with built in mirror fronted wardrobes.

Each bedroom frames its own unique elevated perspective of the surrounding countryside.

As you would expect to find on the first floor, there is an excellent specification of family bathroom and all accommodation on this floor is served by a light and airy galleried landing.



OUTSIDE

The south facing rear garden is approximately 26 meters at its widest and begins with a sandstone patio and terrace that exacts to the width of the property. The garden wraps around the western side of the property and offers a private and secluded space for your children to play or for your guests to be suitably impressed and relaxed.

To the eastern side of the garden you will find a potting area and behind the DOUBLE GARAGE (of 5.28m x 5.47m with two up and over doors, light + power connected, personal door to the side and eaves storage above) you will find a workshop of 5m x 1.77m. Both the garage and workshop have electricity supplied by individual RCD's.
