Manderley is a bespoke-built property built for the current vendors, in 2012. The property has been constructed to a particularly high standard of specification and finish throughout and sits in excellent sized private gardens with south and easterly aspects across open countryside.
An imposing canopy porch gives way to double doors opening into a welcoming galleried reception hall with polished porcelain tiled flooring, running through to the kitchen. To the front of the property are two well-proportioned reception rooms with the lounge featuring a “Stovax” multi-fuel enclosed fireplace within a tiled surround.
The hub of the house is without doubt the superb open-plan family kitchen, fitted with a range of high quality high-gloss shaker style cabinets including a central island and breakfast bar under oak block work surfaces. Comprehensive integral appliances include a Bosch double oven, microwave, gas hob and extractor fan, additional integral appliances include two fridges, a freezer and dishwasher. Attractive porcelain flooring runs throughout the kitchen into the family and dining areas, featuring a “Stovax” multi-fuel enclosed fireplace and twin French doors opening to the gardens. Of particular interest, there is a walk-in humidity and temperature-controlled wine cellar currently having a 400-bottle capacity.
Off the kitchen is a utility room with base cabinets with plumbing for laundry appliances. From here a door leads off to a WC with a further door giving access to a study having superb easterly views through French doors to the gardens.
