Woodhayes is an elegant, Georgian-inspired detached house offering flexible and spacious accommodation extending to over 4,000 square feet. The house was built approximately 28 years ago and has been extensively improved by the current owners who have created a beautifully-finished family home. Every room is spacious, light and well-proportioned, with high ceilings, cornicing and sash windows throughout.
At the heart of the ground floor is a spacious entrance hall, with a limestone floor, from where the reception rooms are accessed. To the left of the entrance hall is a very spacious kitchen/breakfast room, also with a limestone floor and French doors leading out to the gardens. The bespoke Neptune kitchen is well-equipped with granite work surfaces, a central kitchen island, double ceramic Butler sink, Neff warming drawer and microwave, wine cooler, Falcon range with induction hob, extractor fan, integrated freezer, two integrated refrigerators and a Neff dishwasher. There is also a separate utility room, providing further storage and worktop space. To the rear of the house, looking out towards the gardens, is a double-aspect sitting room with a Chesney wood burner and attractive fire surround as its focal point. The large, open plan dining room/family room is located to the right of the entrance hall, accessed via double glass doors. This striking reception room provides a wonderful space for dining and entertaining, featuring a contemporary wood burner, slate tiled floor and large bi-fold doors which open out to the gardens. A study/snug with bespoke fitted bookcases and a cloakroom with a marble basin complete the ground floor.
Upstairs there are four good-size double bedrooms accessed from a galleried landing. The double-aspect master bedroom benefits from lovely views of the gardens and neighbouring fields, as well as a dressing room and en suite shower room with a large walk-in rain shower plus ‘his and hers’ twin basins. The remaining three bedrooms are all double-aspect, light and spacious, two with stylish en suite shower rooms and one with an en suite bathroom.
Woodhayes is approached via automated electric gates which lead to a gravelled driveway, providing ample space for multiple vehicles to park. There is also a triple garage with automated remote-operated doors, providing further parking space. Adjacent to the garage is a studio with sound-proofing glass windows, which has been used as a music room in the past, but is currently set up as a gym.
The gardens are beautifully maintained. There is a formal walled garden with established flowerbeds, featuring a variety of colourful foliage including lavenders, roses and climbers which prettily ascend the surrounding walls. A central paved patio provides the ideal space for al fresco dining and entertaining. A gate leads to a tucked-away area of lawn and a log store. The remainder of the gardens are mainly laid to lawn, surrounded by mature shrubs and trees, providing a high level of privacy. There are areas of woodland towards the boundaries, an orchard with plum trees and a large gallery/treehouse in the centre of the gardens that provides wonderful views.
