This four bedroom house is still of a recent construction and has been maintained very well. The current owners have done various upgrades to the property such as a ground source heat pump which the central heating works off of. It is a straight of the art equipment and is one of the most economical as well as ecological ways to run the heating.
If we enter the house via the ground floor which once was the basement. Obviously this space is the footprint of the entire house so it’s a big space. Half of it is a garage and the rest has been converted into living accommodation and storage. There is a living room, a bedroom, a bathroom and large room which could easily be divided into two as it is already prepared for this, as there are light switches to both side, two separate doors and radiators to each side so all you would have to do is put a plaster board wall up in the middle.
There is an internal stair case leading up to the next floor where the main living accommodation is. At the top of the stairs to the right there is a small cupboard which is perfect for a pantry as the door from the stairs opens up into the kitchen.
The kitchen is very spacious and has lots of cupboard space. There was a brand new kitchen fitted not long ago with top of the range Silestone worktops. From the kitchen there is access to a balcony with great views of the hills and the lake.
The property’s living room is a good size with two sets of patio doors, one to the front of the property and another to the back.
On this floor there are a further two bedrooms. One is the master suit which has a very good sized bedroom, a large bathroom and built in wardrobes. The other bedroom is also a good size and has a large window. There is also a room that is being used as an office but could be turned into a guest room. All of the bedrooms have lovely wooden floors.
To the outside, there is a barbecue area just beside the swimming pool. All of this area is tiled and walled. Here you can really appreciate the views. The property also has a piece of land further down so if you did want to have a vegetable patch or keep some animals, it would be perfect.
