This four/five bedroom detached house has undergone a high-specification modernisation and enlargement by its current owners, that makes it unrecognisable from its previous form. The house has been colour designed and decorated with Farrow & Ball, with colour coordinated hardwood shutters. On entering this immaculate home via the spacious entrance hall with bespoke functional storage and cloakroom, the accommodation is very versatile with two double bedrooms to the front of the house, both on the ground floor, both entered by concealed doorways and with ensuite shower rooms. These bedrooms could be utilised as a reception room and/or home office should the new owners desire. There are several amazing spaces to mention but the kitchen - dining - family room and adjacent utility room is certainly one of them and is truly the hub of the house and makes for an indoor/outdoor entertaining space with bi folds leading out to the garden terrace. Also to the rear is a sitting room that overlooks the garden and is a space to retreat to at the end of the day. On approaching the first floor from the entrance hall you arrive at a bright vaulted gallery landing which leads to a principal suite made up of a main bedroom, ensuite shower room and spacious dressing room that could easily be adjusted to be used as a separate bedroom. There is also the second bedroom with walk in dressing room to the first floor and a grand family bathroom. To the rear the secluded garden has been professionally landscaped which features a two-tier terrace hot tub, electric points and Mediterranean planting creating a splendid retreat. To the front of the property there is a spacious Cotswold stone drive with electrics ready for EV charging points. The property has many modern features including a smart home operating system by Control4, allowing for personalised control over lighting, audio, video, climate, intercom and security. Upon viewing what really sets this beautiful family home apart is the attention to detail that has been given by the current owners with the interior boasting high-quality fixtures, fittings and lighting including well known brands such as Fired Earth, Ralph Lauren, Heals and many more. This unique and bespoke property must be viewed internally to fully appreciate what has the feeling of a brand-new home with many relaxing spaces.
