An elegant 1930's detached house that has been subject to a meticulous refurbishment by its current owners to create a sophisticated and stylish family home.
Monymusk occupies a delightful elevated position, set well back from the road behind an attractive five bar gate and recently laid Cotswold stone driveway. The traditional façade of the property features vertical hung tiles to the bay window, painted rendered elevations and a pretty brick surround to the entrance doorway. Entering the property there is a useful entrance vestibule for decamping boots, shoes and cloaks before continuing into the inner hallway. The beautiful entrance hallway gives a first glimpse of the impressive interior design acumen that has been afforded throughout the house from its smart polished stained floorboards to the painted tread staircase rising to the first floor, the attention to detail is already hugely apparent. There is a useful boot cupboard and separate boiler cupboard in the hallway which houses the recently installed central heating boiler.
The sitting room has a glorious bay fronted south aspect and benefits from a contemporary feature fireplace with cast iron wood burning stove and matching polished floorboards. The soft paint palate of the room strikes a lovely contrast with the floor and refined details such as Bakelite light switches and pendent light fittings add a touch of quality. To the rear of the sitting room an open square arch leads directly though into the impressive family kitchen. Spanning the full width of the house the kitchen features a substantial range of stylish floor units, complimented by hidden lighting features above the superb solid Ash counter-top, and the discrete oven hood. The kitchen comes complete with an integrated dishwasher and provision for a range cooker and fridge/freezer. There is ample space within the kitchen for a breakfast or dining table and the theme of the polished floorboards continues to unify the ground floor rooms.
To the rear of the kitchen is a lovely garden room, with an Oak framed pair of Bi-Fold doors leading out to the garden, there is also a well appointed utility room and ground floor cloakroom situated off the garden room.
On the first floor off an attractive landing area are the three bedrooms and family bathroom, two of the bedrooms are good doubles in size with ornamental cast iron fireplaces, whilst bedroom three is a good single room. The family bathroom is fitted with a chic period style suite with shower over the bath and a heated towel rail.
Outside, along with the aforementioned recently laid driveway, which has space for a good number of vehicles there is also a single garage and wood store. There is access to both sides of the house with plenty of potential (subject to the necessary consents) to extend to the left hand side. The rear garden is a generous space with a raised patio area adjacent to the house with a step down to a lush level lawn, bounded on both sides and to the rear by fencing.
