A refreshingly distinct and exemplary remodel of a 1950 s cottage to a substantial detached home which blends effortlessly into its village surroundings. The clever addition of a contemporary French oak frame to the interior provides stylish open plan living and serves as a key feature throughout. The current owners had a clear lifestyle vision to create their ideal family home with an everyday "feel good factor" akin to waking up on holiday and they certainly have successfully achieved this and more.
Stepping through the solid oak front door, the journey begins in the hallway with a feature wood and glass balustraded staircase which instantly sets the scene. The presiding theme throughout the house is the use of oak and glass to give a contemporary barn style feel with an abundance of natural light. Attention to detail such as the oak doors with brushed steel handles together with traditional column radiators and pale wooden floors all contribute to a truly bespoke design.
The kitchen/diner/family room is simply stunning. An impressive space with double bi-fold doors opening onto the decking and garden beyond. The kitchen area has a vaulted ceiling which creates an instant wow factor along with the recently installed hand made, and hand painted, kitchen units, quality integrated appliances and a beautiful Belfast double sink. On the ground floor there are two further side by side reception rooms, a utility/downstairs shower room and a cloakroom/WC.
Upstairs, the huge oak frame continues to provide interesting vistas, particularly in the master bedroom, which again, has a spectacular vaulted ceiling and the landing really shows off a beautiful oak collar and purlins. The en-suite bathroom to the Master bedroom boasts a feature wash basin recessed into an original butchers block as well as underfloor heating. Adjacent to the Master bedroom with a connecting door is bedroom 4, which may also serve well as a nursing or dressing room. Furthermore, the three remaining bedrooms are all doubles, with the second floor space making an ideal teenage or guest room.
