Description of Property
This wonderful five-bedroom property is an ideal family home offering spacious living and entertaining accommodation.
The property is approached via the block-paved driveway and surrounded by mature trees. The porch entrance leads into the welcoming reception hallway.
The re-fitted kitchen/breakfast room is located immediately on the left and features a stunning range of cream shaker-style wall and floor cupboards providing ample storage space. There are various high-quality built-in appliances including a double oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, and gas-fired hob with extractor hood above. The stunning granite worktops are beautifully complemented by the cream cupboards and there is space for an informal dining area.
The home flows from the kitchen into the dining room, ideally located, and on into the drawing room. Both spaces offer ample space for entertaining and are flooded with natural light. The wonderfully appointed drawing room leads out onto a private balcony via double doors and looks out over the rear gardens and Sutton Park beyond. This is a lovely quiet spot where you can fully enjoy the private position of the property close to the Park.
An inner hallway on the other side of the reception hallway leads to the master bedroom at the far end, which features a spacious en-suite bathroom with beautiful corner bath and separate shower, all in a lovely neutral cream, as well as a private balcony overlooking the garden. Double glass doors and full-size windows ensure the master bedroom is a light and airy space and built-in wardrobes allow for plenty of storage.
Opposite the master bedroom is the study, which features a lovely bay window and front aspect. The study is ideally situated away from the main living accommodation and therefore is a perfect spot for working from home.
