A beautiful detached family home set in this popular village. With four generous bedrooms and sizeable living space, this really is a great home in the country for a modern, growing family!
Set in this thriving and popular community, 13 Barnshill Close sits on the North East edge of the village. Elevated from the village road, it sits prominently and proudly at the entrance to this well-liked close.
Built just twenty years ago, this really is a super four bedroom family home in a lovely position, with village amenities and fabulous country walks right on your doorstep. The property has great kerb appeal and I was really looking forward to stepping inside…
To the front of the property is a driveway offering ample off road parking, leading to the single garage. Lawns edge the front of the house, bordered by some pretty shrubs and planting.
The front door leads into a really nice entrance hallway prettily painted in a soft duck egg blue, it is very welcoming and has doors to the principle rooms, a cloakroom, under stairs storage, a practical tiled floor and a good sized utility room with units, work surfaces, sink and space and plumbing for your laundry appliances and dishwasher.
In my view, the kitchen here really is lovely and the real heart of this charming home. It expands the full width of the property and as such, gives generous space for dining and family space, with double doors leading through into the sitting room and also doors to the garden. What an incredibly sociable space and flooded with natural light from the double aspect windows and glazed doors.
The quality oak kitchen was fitted approximately 7 years ago. With solid wood units, soft closure doors and contrasting marble effect work surfaces, it really is very smart. There is an integrated induction hob, an eye level double oven and fridge. I love the white ceramic sink set under the window and our vendors have a coordinating island unit centrally for further storage and worktop space all adding to the modern country theme. The dining area could host the largest table and chairs, or even a sofa if desired.
The sitting room complements the modern, yet classic county feel with the chimney breast painted a deep period green which accentuates the inset AGA log burning stove and slate hearth. A lovely, long room, our vendors have had bookshelves and cupboards hand crafted either side of the fireplace a fabulous place to display books, ornaments, and pieces of interest. Again, this room is brimming with natural light from its three windows and I really like the small alcove under one which is presently edged with small pews and stowed with children's toys a perfect play corner and thus keeping the main sitting room very grown up and sophisticated!
The stairs lead up to the largest galleried landing space I have seen in a modern property! It is almost like another room and certainly room for a desk or sofa. There is also a large airing cupboard and access to the part boarded loft.
I was very pleasantly surprised at the space on offer here, with three double bedrooms and a very nice single room with a super view towards the village. These are all served by the family bathroom.
The master bedroom really is lovely, awash with natural light from its dual aspect and benefits from countryside views. There is a fitted wardrobe and a nice size en-suite shower room.
I love that the garden is accessed from the dining area and kitchen. I can imagine balmy Summer evenings sitting there with the doors open. There is side access to the front of the house and also a door into the garage, which has light and power and is part boarded for storage. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and is nice and level, with a patio area for dining furniture. The garden is surrounded by trees and shrubs. A garden shed is tucked away in one corner and a gated fence hides the oil tank, giving additional storage space for garden tools and toys.
All in all, properties like this are few and far between the dream of village life yet in a substantial, modern family home on a friendly development. I am sure you will be impressed by the generous room sizes and of the homes flowing layout. In my opinion, this will make a lovely family home and create a very pleasurable lifestyle in this sought after little village.
