What a spectacular house in a superb location!
Built with contemporary lines in mind, this road in Failand is sure to be one of the favourites. With vendors who have enjoyed every second of living here, you can understand why it's so difficult to make the decision to downsize, but this house is big and spacious and ideal for a growing family.
Currently comprising an extended hallway which gives you immediate impression of space, from here is the downstairs cloakroom and for those needing to work from home an office with access to the garden. The hallway features a staircase wrapping up to the first-floor landing. To the right is a stunning sitting room, with an open fire that can burn wood or coal for those cosy nights in and door leading out onto part of the very private garden. From here, is a gorgeous kitchen/breakfast room which is perfect for those who love to experiment in the kitchen with some company, who can make themselves comfortable at the breakfast bar, whilst there is still plenty of space for an additional table and chairs. The base, drawer and wall units are all contemporary in design with work surfaces over, there are also some built-in appliances such as a dishwasher and drinks cooler, from the side of the kitchen is also a fabulous utility room with plumbing for washing machine and access to the driveway. The rear of the house benefits from an additional reception room, which lends itself to being a lounge, playroom or summer room, ideal for parties and leads directly out into the garden.
Upstairs are four double bedrooms, the master having its own shower en-suite, and built in wardrobes. The family bathroom is very generous in size having both a panelled bath and a separate walk in shower which mains power shower. The whole benefits from a gorgeous, glorious wrap around garden which is perfect for families to play and relax together, the double garage is attached to the house and has light, power with electric up and over door and loads of storage, whilst everything inside the house is presented really beautifully.
This is a house where you may never want to downsize from.
