A detached, individual property, styled in a contemporary manner with a wonderful combination of substantial living space, a private level plot, ancillary accommodation and recreational amenities to include a pool and spa room.
An individual home that has been wonderfully styled to create fabulous living accommodation with an open plan feel and an emphasis on bringing the outside in so that the private plot with pool and wide terrace, can be enjoyed to maximum effect. Set back off New Road and tucked away behind solid gates, the property is accessed off a sweeping driveway that leads to the front of the house and the garaging. A lovely wide stone porch with adjacent decking leads into the L shaped reception hall and the main living space. The first impression of Barnstone is one of space and light as the generous sitting room with open fireplace leads through to the open plan kitchen/dining room and is perfect for entertaining through the seasons as bi-folding doors open to the terrace and pool. The kitchen is well fitted with a bespoke range of units, central island with marble top, fitted Neff and Miele appliances, deep storage drawers and shelved larder and under floor heating. Off the sitting room is a large study or bedroom 4 with doors again to the terrace.
The bedroom accommodation is arranged to one wing of the property and the master bedroom is a particular feature with double doors opening out to a private decked area and open to a luxury spa room with bi-folding doors to the decking and pool, sunken bath and walk in, shelved and railed dressing room. Two further double bedrooms are served by a modern en-suite shower and smartly fitted bathroom and a block staircase rises to a large loft area. As well as having a flamboyant feel to the property, practicality has also been considered and a large utility room has been added for further storage and housing white goods.
Barnstone is situated on a large level plot with the garaging and driveway to the front and a well enclosed garden to the rear. The garden is arranged to a wide stone paved terrace around the high specification heated pool with electric cover. There is a wide level lawn with adjacent decking, seating area and a lovely backdrop of Cleeve Hill. The high fenced and conifer boundary ensures privacy and there are raised beds, privet hedging and attractive pleaching. The detached garage has been divided to provide storage to the front and a studio to the rear as well as a a neat one bedroom flat.
