Amberstone House is a detached property which stands within about 0.52 acres of landscaped gardens, mainly laid to lawn over split levels. There is a small orchard area available by separate
negotiation adding intrigue and views can be enjoyed over the Amber valley and open countryside beyond. Amberstone House was very thoughtfully designed in the 1970's with all principle rooms taking in the superb far reaching views, creating a spacious family home with very well presented flexible accommodation. The front door leads into the reception hallway off which is an underfloor heated kitchen which is the hub of the house. There is a good range of wall and base units, Rangemaster oven, Bosch dishwasher, Samsung fridge freezer and CDA microwave. A large island unit is surmounted by a granite work
surface and incorporates a wine cooler. There are French doors that open onto the raised decking area and garden beyond and another door for easy access to the side of the property. From the hallway there is an impressive family room (39'11" x 19'10") which is currently used as a sitting / dining room with a fitted oak bar area. The room was previously used as a swimming pool which still exists beneath the oak effect flooring and can be
reinstated if required as the boiler room continues to house the pump to the swimming pool. There is a convenient shower room with WC adjoining the room and a conservatory/utility room adjoining the room, providing additional storage space and an
external door to the back of the property. Completing the ground floor is a secondary sitting room with a large fireplace with a wooden surround and study area. The first floor accommodation includes a large master bedroom
with wonderful views, an en suite bathroom, fireplace with stone surround, fitted wardrobes and storage cupboards. There are four further bedrooms, two with en suite shower facilities and a family bathroom.
Grounds and gardens

A side gate leads through to the front garden which has been extremely well designed by the current owner and has matured very nicely to create a wonderful display of colour and foliage throughout the year.

The garden is split over multiple levels with gravel pathways and lovely seating areas, from which to enjoy the private sunny garden with stunning far reaching views.
