Set within a generous, leafy plot of 0.17 of an acre, "The Villa" is a triumph of creativity and craftsmanship where beauty, comfort and functionality all come together, to provide wonderful living spaces for a family to interact and enjoy. The property is exceptionally comfortable and spacious, extending to 294 sqm (3169 sqft), with accommodation set over three floors. There are four very good bedrooms and the master suite on the top floor benefits from an unrivalled level of privacy and seclusion, together with a luxurious en-suite bathroom, private sitting/dressing area and a large roof terrace offering fabulous, far-reaching views.

The contemporary design of the property utilises large glass panels, floor to ceiling windows and walls of sliding glazed doors to maximise the light within the building. The rooms are elegantly proportioned and there are thoughtful features including an impressive entrance hall with bespoke fitted storage, and on the first floor there is a library/sitting area off the second bedroom, making a wonderful guest suite for long term visitors or for grown-up children to enjoy.

Outside the principal garden to the rear of the property has a sunny aspect, ideal for entertaining or enjoying a drink at the end of a busy day. The garden has an unexpected sense of maturity, having been professionally landscaped, whilst always respecting the many mature trees that provide a natural, leafy backdrop and add to the sense of privacy and seclusion that the plot has always enjoyed. To the side of the house raised beds provide a perfect spot for a vegetable or herb garden and there are further raised beds that extend along the boundaries to the front. The front garden is predominantly hard landscaped and has Indian sandstone paving as well as a striking resin-bound pea shingle driveway, which is both practical and beautiful and provides access to the large, heated garage.
