An exceptionally well finished and spacious detached family home (3,472sqft/322.6sqm) set in wonderful grounds of nearly half an acre.


Orchard House is a contemporary detached home constructed by a local builder in 1982, with an emphasis on cavernous social space and enriching natural light. The triple glazed windows are Scandinavian. The five bedroom split level flexible accommodation is presented with an enviable attention to detail. Double front doors open to a welcoming marble floored entrance hall with an integral door to the garage and a vaulted dining hall. The large kitchen is German manufactured with a full bank of Miele appliances, it is a great family space with a breakfast bar and sitting area. A connecting utility room leads off. There are two bedrooms with an adjacent bathroom on the lower ground floor. Upstairs, a grand galleried landing leads to the 29ft (8.9m) vaulted drawing room with a fireplace & sliding doors to the rear garden. There are two further bedrooms, with an adjacent family bathroom. A spacious master bedroom suite overlooks the gardens.

The property is approached through a gated and walled entrance on to a tarmacadam drive providing ample parking. A large double integral garage has a workshop behind. Well manicured grounds, predominantly west facing, have been designed to create walkways through shrub beds that carefully divide separate lawned areas; two flanking lawns at the front have mature screening hedges. Leading from the dining hall is a sunken sun terrace with steps leading to the garden. A large range of unusual and interesting plants give colour all year round.
