An attractive family house in an elevated position in about half an acre.
The Main House
Buzzards Drift was built to a Scandia Hus design for the vendors in 2008 with particular attention to the generous proportions of the reception rooms and bedrooms.
From the spacious entrance hall, with stairs to the first floor, double doors open to the principal reception rooms. The sitting room, with its restored Victorian fireplace and timber surround has double doors opening to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room/family room is a wonderfully adaptable space and over 33ft long. The comprehensively equipped kitchen area with integral microwave/oven/grill, ceramic hob with stainless steel hood over and 1.5 ceramic sink is divided from the family area by a wide breakfast bar. A brick chimney breast houses a wood burning stove and triple folding doors (with electric canopy over) open to the expanse of sandstone terrace. At the end of the room double doors open to the conservatory.
The dining room with its charming southerly facing square bay window has a further restored Victorian fireplace housing a gas coal effect fire. The study opposite is shelved on two walls and at the end of the passage the practically fitted utility room, including a four plate gas hob, gives access through the back door to the drive.
On the first floor, the master bedroom is of generous proportions with fitted wardrobes and its en suite bath/shower room. Being above the dining room, the bedroom French doors open to a balcony to enjoy the aspect across to Bushy Leaze woodland.
There are four further bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms and bedroom five is currently a study/workroom.
A particular feature of the property is extensive storage space including eaves storage, fitted wardrobes and, the loft, with a pull-down ladder onto the galleried landing.
Built at the same time as the original house, the vendors converted the loft area in 2012 to a self-contained flat with its separate entrance, a 21ft x 21ft living/bedroom room with stainless steel sink. The focal point stones-effect electric fire is wall hung together with two radiators heated from a Calor gas-fired boiler. Below is the three bay garage with two up-and-over doors.
The original acre garden has been divided into two equally sized plots with the area belonging to 108 enclosed on the southern boundary by a post and rail fence. The house is accessed via a shared drive which leads up to the house and expanse of level parking area next to the garage.
Steps and the drive lead up to a further area of parking and the front door. To the western side of the house is an attractive expanse of Indian sandstone paving with further paving leading around the conservatory and beyond. The garden extends above this area with lawn broken by mature hardwood, fruit trees and conifers.
