Step into the lap of luxury with this elegant Edwardian gem nestled on the exclusive Charles Dickens Avenue. This swanky detached house, one of only eight on this private road, exudes timeless charm with its classic Tudor Bethan style. You'll be thrilled to know that the natural stone used in the construction hails from none other than the original London Bridge. The current owners have worked their magic, blending contemporary elements seamlessly with the period features. The grand entrance hall sets the stage with its soaring ceiling and a chandelier that's sure to impress. The triple-aspect reception room is a showstopper, boasting a feature fireplace, beautiful oak flooring, and French doors that spill out onto a west-facing patio and garden overlooking serene farmland. Prepare to be wowed by the bespoke kitchen by Swanns, featuring luxurious granite work surfaces and top-notch appliances. Completing the ground floor is a handy downstairs cloakroom/wc.
The first floor beckons with four generously-sized bedrooms, all outfitted with fabulous wardrobes by GPM Designs. Pamper yourself in the quality bathroom and enjoy the convenience of a separate cloakroom/w.c.
Outside, you'll find ample driveway parking, a recently laid block paved driveway, and a garage to accommodate your fancy rides. The front gardens are a delightful sight, with lush lawns and charming flower borders. The rear of the property is a true haven, featuring a wide patio terrace where you can unwind in your very own hot tub while relishing uninterrupted countryside views. And there's more! A pergola with a retractable roof awaits, perfect for leisurely hours spent basking in the breathtaking scenery.
