No 3 The Hamlet is a substantial modern property built circa 2008 by a local developer, to a high specification and standard throughout. The property offers free-flowing accommodation over three floors; the top floor offering adaptable accommodation, including extra bedroom space, games rooms, home office facilities or simply elaborate storage.
A canopy porch frames the front door with access into a central reception hall, having porcelain tile flooring which runs throughout much of the ground floor accommodation. Double oak glazed doors open into a particularly spacious sitting room featuring a living flame whole-in-the-wall fire within a marble surround, engineered oak flooring and glazed French doors open to the rear garden.
Across the hallway is a fabulous dining kitchen fitted with a range of high-quality gloss cabinets, including display cabinets, under granite work surfaces. High-quality Neff appliances include a five-burner gas hob with extractor hood, double eye-level fan assisted oven, microwave oven and an integrated coffee machine. Integral appliances include a dishwasher, fridge, freezer and a dual temperature wine cooler. The kitchen enjoys a wealth of space allowing for a substantial breakfast table. Off the kitchen is a utility room with a range of cabinets, including a one and a half drainer sink unit and plumbing for laundry appliances. Off the utility is a cloakroom with two-piece white suite, and a further door opens to the double garage. Adjacent to the kitchen is a well-proportioned dining room, perfect for formal gatherings, with views to the rear garden.
A contemporary light oak spindle staircase rises to a spacious first floor landing giving access to all bedrooms and includes a large heated linen store. The master bedroom is particularly noteworthy with its semi-vaulted ceiling and arch-topped French windows with Juliette balcony. This room features a range of bespoke high gloss fitted wardrobes with matching dresser unit, drawers and bedside cabinets. A beautifully appointed en suite shower room features an oversized shower cabinet with Aqualisa thermostatic shower with remote stop/start facility and full tiling; the floor tiles warmed by electric underfloor heating. The guest bedroom also features bespoke fitted wardrobes and an equally well-appointed en suite shower room, also warmed by underfloor heating. There are three further double bedrooms; two of which have bespoke fitted wardrobes. The main family bathroom is fitted with a contemporary white suite, including a “Victoria Albert” bath with side-fill, chrome heated towel radiator and underfloor heating.
A spiral staircase ascends to the second-floor accommodation comprising two substantial semi-vaulted rooms with Velux windows and eaves storage. Whilst currently being used as a games room and general storeroom the second floor could equally serve as an additional bedroom with en suite facilities (subject to the necessary building control approval), hobby rooms or home office facilities.
The property is approached through a communal gated entrance leading to a private driveway offering parking for four vehicles, in turn giving access to a double garage with remote door. The rear walled gardens offer supreme privacy, mainly laid to lawn and bisected by a natural stone pathway leading to a substantial brick-built outbuilding, currently being used as a garden store. The gardens are beautifully landscaped, including silver birch, a bamboo shrub and a pergola supporting a clematis. To the rear of the house is a natural stone paved terrace with paths to either side of the house.
