A superb family house with a contemporary finish, located close to Blundell's School, nicely hidden but with an open outlook. This house has it all!
Newte House is a superb family home, nicely hidden away from passing traffic, overlooking green marshland and backing onto one of the playing fields of Blundell's School.
Rarely does a property become available so close to Blundell's School. A gate in the rear garden leads onto the playing field and makes the perfect traffic free route for children to walk to school.
The house is well-designed and has a contemporary feel to it; the modern style kitchen/diner is a clever blend of modern units and appliances with a cosy wood burner and bi-folding oak framed glass doors opening to an attractive patio with a Japanese fishpond. Large bedrooms benefit from en-suite bathrooms and a balcony offers a superb view over the adjacent Tidcombe Fen, a protected SSSI land. There is plenty of space with three reception rooms for a working-from-home-office or a children's play/game room. The house has ample storage space. A good size porch with fitted cupboards, a double garage and an additional outside utility room, as well as a large loft, can store all the trappings of a large family. The house is surrounded by a private garden and offers a relaxing outdoor space. This is a fabulous house and family home truly worthy of a viewing.
The kitchen offers a comprehensive range of fitted Miele appliances and underfloor heating and is adjoined by a functional utility room. There is plenty of dining space with seating at the breakfast bar, room for a large dining table and a further sociable seating space next to the wood burner, or directly out onto the patio for a summer lunch/dinner. There is another glass door leading to the vegetable/herb garden with a little seating area, which catches the morning sun.
A light and large sitting room with bi-folding doors looks out over the patio and the front garden and the Fen beyond. The oak floor with up-lighting, a contemporary gas fireplace and its spaciousness makes it the perfect space for entertaining guests. Two further rooms on the ground floor are used as a large office and a snug, and a cloakroom completes the tour of the ground floor.
The first floor does not disappoint. The master bedroom is nothing short of impressive. The room is very spacious, has an oak floor with underfloor heating, and the vaulted ceiling adds to the feeling of grandeur. The large en-suite shower room completes the feeling with a modern slate finish, double sinks, and a large walk-in shower. The second bedroom, originally the master, also benefits from an en-suite shower room. The room is 'extended' with a large balcony that looks out onto the adjacent Fen and really is the perfect position for a summer breakfast and to spot a deer and other wildlife. The third and fourth bedrooms are both doubles, served by the family bathroom.
The property is approached along a small private lane that serves four houses (incl. Newte) The drive offers plenty of parking and leads to a double garage with room for one car and a workshop/storage space. The garden surrounds the property, with a level lawn to the front, and a vegetable borders to the far side. The garden to the rear is private and of a good size for a family and a gate leads out onto Mayfield, one of the playing fields of Blundell's School. It is primarily used for maintenance of the hedge but this has also been used as shortcut or for children to walk to school. An attractive patio lies to the side of the house, with pretty boarders, a Japanese style pond and bi-fold doors to the kitchen/diner the perfect spot for enjoying the sunshine and bringing the outdoors in .
Newte House is located within walking distance of the town centre to the west and the golf course to the east. Blundell's School and associated preparatory school are both within a stone throw and country walks are easily accessed along the Grand Western Canal. For travel further afield, junction 27 of the M5 and adjoining Parkway Train station are just a few minutes' drive away at Sampford Peverell.
