Introduction

A stylish and beautifully presented home that has been the subject of the most impressive and comprehensive programme of refurbishment and extension to create an exceptional family residence. The attractive accommodation extends to a sizable 2800 square foot and is centred around the fabulous kitchen living room which enjoys bifold doors to the large sun terrace and is from where the many other rooms radiate. In addition to its quality finishes and surprisingly large living space the property has also been designed with consideration to energy efficiency including solar panelling, feeding rechargeable batteries and significant contribution to energy costs. Situated in the popular village of Shootash, Newlands occupies gardens of quarter of an acre which are particularly private, backing onto Woodland which facilitates immediate picturesque walks through local countryside.

On the first floor are four substantial bedrooms served by 4 contemporary bath and shower rooms and there is also the potential to utilise the ground floor study as an additional fifth bedroom, hosting an en-suite shower room.
