The Gables is a superb detached family
home built in 1998 to an exceptionally high
standard and well designed to maximise on
space whilst positioned to perfectly capture
the south facing aspect and open views
across the rooftops. The accommodation
is exceptionally spacious with an excellent
balance of large family living space and
equally generous bedrooms, to create a
wonderful versatile home. The beautiful
tended garden grounds surround the entire
property and offer lovely outdoor space
including a large patio and the driveway leads
to the impressive detached double garage.

The main entrance to the property is to the side
and you immediately enter into the vestibule.
This in turn leads through to the impressive
reception hall which provides individual
access to all the rooms on this level and has
stairs leading to the upper accommodation.
A cupboard in the hall provides storage
space. The lounge is beautifully present and
exceptionally large with two windows to the
side and French doors opening out to the
front garden. There is plenty space for both
lounge and dining furniture within this room
and providing a focal point is the gas living
flame fire. The kitchen/dining/family room, all
on open plan, creates a superb ‘hub of the
home’ for families and is again very spacious
with both windows and French doors opening
out to the garden. The kitchen area has
recently been refurbished with contemporary
white units and stylish work tops. There
is ample working & storage space within the
kitchen and also space for a family dining table
and chairs. The family area is a comfortable,
versatile space and enjoys a gas living flame
fire set within a beautiful wood mantle piece
with tiled detailing. The master bedroom is
a charming double bedroom of exceptional
proportions. French doors again open out to
the garden and excellent storage facilities are
provided by two double built in wardrobes
and two further single wardrobes. The ensuite
shower room has a white two piece suite and
walk in shower area. Bedroom two is located
to the rear with a corner position and two
windows. There is built in double wardrobes
and access to the main shower room, creating
an optional ensuite facility. Bedroom three is
also to the rear with a corner position and
two windows. It’s a further large double
room and has built in double wardrobes. The
shower room is fitted with a white two piece
suite and double shower cubicle. This shower
room can be accessed from the hall and from
bedroom 2. Completing the accommodation
on the ground floor is the utility room with
space for various appliances, worktop, sink
and access to a separate cloakroom. A door
leads directly out to the rear garden and
there is a storage cupboard with the hot
water tank.

Stairs in the reception hall lead to the upper
level where you will find one very large
bedroom. This is a very bright area, given the
two velux style windows, and a large amount
of storage is accessed within the eaves. There
are also two separate large storage cupboards.
The size of this room creates an extremely
versatile space, and although currently used
as a bedroom, it has also proved ideal as a
further family space or games room. It’s also
though very easy to divide into two separate
bedrooms with additional bathrooms.

The beautiful garden grounds surround the
property entirely. There is a large grass lawn
to the front encased by well stocked flower
beds and a walled patio area lies closest to the
house. A path leads right round the property
and to the east side there is steps, flanked by
flowers beds, leading to a further garden area
perfectly position to capture the morning
sun. The large driveway provides parking for
many cars and leads you to the detached
double garage. The garage is approx 55sqm,
and is certainly larger than average with
plenty space to have a workshop or simply
as additional storage facilities. There is light,
power and water connected to the garage.
A private road lies to the West side of the
house leading to an area of land beyond the
garden which is around 23m x 7.5m. Please
note that a neighbouring land owner has a
right of access over the private road to access
the field to the North of the property.
