Owner's comments

"We loved the size and space when we first viewed this large house that was to become our family home. The peaceful setting and lovely friendly neighbourhood have been a constant joy and we hope the new owners love it as much as us. The Sports Centre and Golf Course are right on your doorstep, within a short walk. The house is also great for the motorway, airport and railway station so travelling further afield is as easy as possible"


Holly Hill is a leafy established neighbourhood that was developed in the early 1960's and offers an appealing range of properties that have proved ever popular with generations of homebuyers. This particular home boasts an amazing 28' x 23' open plan kitchen/dining/family room that is one of the finest we have seen in the area. The spacious master bedroom features a vaulted ceiling with a raised mezzanine area that could potentially be sub-divided to provide an additional fifth bedroom.


The enclosed porch has an internal glazed panel and door opening to the reception hall that is served by a cloakroom. Quality oak flooring flows seamlessly throughout the ground floor and stairs ascend to the landing. Positioned on the right of the hall, the lounge benefits from dual aspect windows that allow natural light to flood in. The stylish wooden mantelpiece has a coal effect gas fire with a metallic surround with an adjacent cupboard providing useful storage space. Sliding doors lead through to the amazing open plan kitchen living room that measures an enviable 28' x 23' and is an outstanding feature of the property. The kitchen area is found to the left and comprises an impressive range of cream finished wall and base units with oak work surfaces that incorporate a sink unit with a cutlery drainer and a mixer tap whilst high level glazed panels emanate natural light. The matching central island unit creates a central hub for this superb living space and provides a breakfast bar. Two side aspect windows and glazed doors overlook the garden ensuring an excellent degree of light.

The sizeable utility room has a further range of wall and base units with a complementary work surface that incorporates a sink unit and a mixer tap. The glass roof creates light whilst a door leads to the driveway. The study is approached via the dining area and has a view over the garden with a door permitting access to an additional reception room that is suitable for a number of uses such as a gym or hobbies area and a door opens to the single garage. On the first floor, a window positioned over the staircase allows natural light, a cupboard houses the boiler and oak doors lead to all rooms. The more than generous master bedroom features a high vaulted ceiling with a secondary staircase leading up to the high level mezzanine area that provides extra storage and has a door opening to the spacious loft. Twin sets of glazed double doors with Juliet balconies enjoy attractive views over the garden and there is also a side aspect window. The en-suite shower displays a modern white suite with fully tiled walls and a chrome heated towel rail. Located at the opposite end of the landing bedroom two is a large double and benefits from an open arched doorway leading to a walk-in wardrobe. Bedroom three is also a spacious double and bedroom four is larger than average. The provision of a family bathroom and a separate shower room is a rare quality and is ideal for the growing family. Both suites are modern in design and have fully tiled walls.


Creating a favourable impression from the street, the brick paved in and out driveway offers parking for up to ten vehicles. A five bar gate on the right leads to the side area that has sensor activated floodlighting and an up and over door permits access to the attached garage. The rear garden has a pleasant established outlook with a south-easterly orientation enjoying a leafy backdrop. The large paved terrace has a raised stone fishpond being perfectly positioned for best of the summer sun and approached from the kitchen area is the ideal place to relax and enjoy al fresco dining. An outside tap, power points and sensor activated floodlighting are provided. The remainder of the garden is predominantly laid to lawn with shrubs and trees that create a pleasing vista and a large sun deck is found in the top left corner.
