    5 bedroom detached house for sale
     
    When architect Roger Trigger built the house in 1984, he included characterful details such as Mediterranean-style archways that repeat in the extensive mature grounds of the property. Big rooms with high ceilings are also part of the design, while double-glazed windows to all aspects capture the sun from dawn to dusk, enabling you to soak in the rich scenery.

    Spread over three storeys, the house features an open plan kitchen-breakfast room with a separate large utility room, several reception spaces, a master bedroom with balcony, dressing area and en suite, four further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and downstairs cloakroom.

    The current owners have made many improvements during their time here. This includes replacing the heating system, gutters, soffits and facias, and installing new doors and low-energy LED light fittings throughout. Overall, the house has enjoyed a high level of maintenance to ensure full functionality and presentation.

    Cavity-filled exterior walls and fully insulated boarded lofts with built in ladders, provide a greener footprint, more warmth and storage space. Unique features such as the walk-in airing cupboard and downstairs coat/shoe room, lend a practical touch to a house which will overwhelm you with its incredible views.

    Welcome to Silverdale

    From the road, a tree-lined driveway sweeps round to the front, where you’ll find space for several cars and a sizeable double garage. With new roll-up electric doors plus electric, lighting, water supply and ample loft space for storage. There are useful cupboards and worktops too. An internal door provides direct access through the practical coat/shoe room, to the rest of the house.

    For now, pause to appreciate the handsome stone and part-rendered exterior before stepping through a wide front door into a bright and generously sized split-level entrance hallway.

    To your left is a modern, fully tiled cloakroom with a close-coupled toilet, basin and frosted window giving light and privacy. Just ahead lies a peaceful snug or TV/gaming den featuring lit glass alcove shelving, a white modern vertical radiator, and lovely views from the window.

    Lower Level Living

    Returning to the hallway, take the wide staircase down to the lower ground floor. A double bedroom sits just to your left, which equally lends itself to use as a study or home office. Integrated shelving and a walk-in cupboard provide yet more usable space.

    From the lower hall, enter a capacious living and dining room, connected by an archway. Soft natural tones to the walls and cream carpeting reflect the ample natural light pouring in through dual French doors and a grand bay window. A single impressive raspberry red wall provides a striking backdrop to the Hwam wood burner, while an ornately coved decorative ceiling completes the sense of luxury.

    Returning to the hallway, you’ll pass a generously sized, fully fitted utility room with space for a variety of useful appliances, before arriving in the triple-aspect breakfast room and fully fitted kitchen, with underfloor heating. Here, gorgeous mandarin orange paintwork and stylish under-cupboard and low-energy ceiling lighting, offset bespoke solid oak wrap-around cabinetry, handmade by a local carpenter.

    You’ll find lots of deep drawers for pots and pans, and concealed storage, plus a breakfast bar to a central island with matching worktop and a Neff 5-ring mains gas hob with cooker hood providing full external extraction. Other integrated appliances include a Neff double convection oven, microwave, steam oven, and dishwasher, a Liebherr fridge-freezer with ice-maker, and a Franke double sink.

    An archway through to the breakfast room offers opportunities to entertain whilst cooking for your family and friends. The porch leading off the kitchen allows access to the sun-drenched terrace for evening drinks or early morning coffee, to a backdrop of shrubs and flowerbeds, while enjoying long ranging views over pastureland.

    Upstairs

    Back in the main entrance hallway, a second staircase rises to the first-floor landing, which has space for a seating, music or play area. In the walk-in airing cupboard, you’ll find an immersion tank, shelves and space for hanging clothes, and access to a further loft storage area.

    Left of the stairs, the master suite is fully fitted with uniquely designed solid oak wardrobes, offering practical features such as shoe racks and long hanging space. Hollywood style lights and a matching Ottoman stool complete the built-in dressing table. Double balcony doors draw in the rolling green hills and fields to enrich this peaceful, subtly decorated room.

    A matching oak Dressing Area leads to the underfloor-heated en suite, where you can relax in the wet room-style rainfall shower, partitioned by a curved glass screen. A fitted corner cabinet housing a countertop basin, a tall chrome heated towel rail, and close-coupled loo, complete this decadent area.


    Two further doubles with high ceilings, generous proportions, fitted wardrobes plus a further dual-aspect double bedroom, complete the accommodation. These rooms are served by a contemporary, fully tiled family bathroom with a luxurious double-ended bath, a recessed electric shower, basin vanity unit and a close-coupled toilet. There is also fibre to the property providing fast broadband.

    Step Outside

    Silverdale’s tranquil, private, south-facing garden benefits from an infusion of texture and colour – from stunning silver pampas grass, magnolia, eucalyptus, sycamore and cherry plum trees to a serene rose garden and a wide variety of trees, shrubs, hanging baskets and raised beds.

    Feature outdoor sensor lighting surrounds the house, creating instant evening ambience for those summer parties and drinks on the expansive sandstone terraces. Secure enclosed fencing and lockable gates provide extra security, creating a safe play space for children and animals.

    Gardeners will be keen to get to work in the vegetable plot, which is served by a peat-free composter and a new Rhino 6x8ft glasshouse with self-correcting temperature, air vents, and staging for potting plants.

    Leading off from a square walled, barbeque area with built-in seating, the double glazed summerhouse is the perfect place to enjoy parties with friends or read the morning paper in the peace and quiet.

    Padlocked double stone arches under the terrace area, make ample room for a mower, garden tools, and outdoor furniture.

    The garden is perfect for nature lovers too. Spot fish and frogs in the lined pond, which has a modern chrome sculptured water feature and built-in fluorescent lighting with aeration filters. The generous lawns and terraces to all aspects, allow a perfect view of the fields dotted with lambs and calves in the springtime. Look down towards Flemingston Moor, which transforms into a lake in winter creating a birdwatcher’s paradise. Keep your eyes peeled for swans, geese, herons, and buzzards.
