Embracing its heritage, the property has been conceived with a discernible industrial aesthetic in mind, which is consistently echoed through the building down to the smallest design detail. Crisp, clean lines are married with durable, high-quality materials to include solid oak joinery, whilst a laid-back, flexible layout unifies the light-flooded interiors. A ground source heat pump and the latest generation of thermal efficient Crittall style glazing, ensure that the eco-credentials are equally sound.
Impressive full height double doors open into an arresting vaulted entrance atrium providing access to the principal reception rooms and a staircase rising to the first floor. An inner lobby space leads to a separate cloakroom and luxurious full bathroom with sleek glass wall tiling, painted panelling and decorative ceramic flooring.
Oak block flooring laid in a striking herringbone pattern flows seamlessly through to the triple aspect reception room. Subtly divided into two interconnected ‘zones’ offering inherent flexibility of use, the sizeable proportions are bathed in natural light via large picture windows, with two sets of French doors cleverly bringing the outside in.
The dual aspect, open plan dining kitchen forms the heart of the home with its striking roof lantern, stylish island breakfast bar and French doors opening directly to the garden terrace. The kitchen has been comprehensively fitted with a bespoke range of timeless, Shaker style wall and base cabinetry in an ink blue colourway by Ruach of Westerham, combined with Silstone quartz and solid oak counters, a full gamut of Miele and NEFF integrated appliances and a ceramic Villeroy & Boch sink with a Quooker ‘Fusion’ tap in patinated brass.
An adjoining utility room offers space and plumbing for both a washing machine and separate tumble dryer, together with additional storage cabinets and a ceramic sink with mixer tap and practical integral drainer. A deep walk-in cupboard is the perfect place to store an ironing board and vacuum amongst other daily essentials.
To the first floor a generously sized landing with internal balcony and glass balustrade adds an exciting additional dimension with its aspect over the entrance atrium. The versatile bedroom accommodation comprises two double bedrooms with en suite wet rooms and useful eaves storage, to include the principal suite with vaulted gable window and Juliet balcony harnessing the delightful outlook over the grazing paddocks to the front. A third single-sized room is ideal for younger family members or could be similarly useful as a dressing room or study.
The accommodation continues externally, with a large self-contained studio - complete with accompanying shower room - equally perfect as a home office, gym or teenage den.
Externally the property is set behind electric five bar gates with entry system, whilst laurel hedging has been planted to provide further screening. To the rear of the property is an elevated lawn with surrounding raised beds and fenced boundaries. A mix of shrubs and herbaceous perennials defined by outdoor lighting enlivens the landscaping scheme and a limestone paved terrace stretching the length of the property is further enhanced by an indulgent outdoor kitchen - complete with oak pergola and antique water feature - provides the perfect area for al fresco entertaining.
A wide crunch gravel driveway accommodates several cars and leads to a detached oak framed carport with lighting and power.
