A fine and distinctive contemporary family home set in landscaped gardens with paddock/meadow.
Woodcutters is an architecturally interesting detached house built for the vendors in 2003. The property was specifically designed not only to take advantage of the east – west elevations to enjoy the rising and setting of the sun but also the ease of enjoying outdoor entertaining. The modern accommodation is beautifully presented and on entering through the impressively glazed gabled front porch this is immediately evident in the dining hall with vaulted ceiling, overlooked by the galleried landing, with its double French windows opening to the rear garden.
The bespoke kitchen has been hand crafted by ‘Berkshire Kitchens and Bathrooms’ has an excellent range of cabinets surrounding an island unit. The worktops are granite and there is space for a table to one side with French windows to the ‘breakfast patio’/sitting area.
The room has a spacious feel and is open plan to the family room also with doors to the garden. Apart from the appealing and beautifully appointed reception rooms on the ground floor the accommodation is also adaptable with the sitting room/cinema originally designed as a bedroom with adjacent shower room. A particularly noteworthy feature is the galleried landing with its seating area. Beyond the master bedroom suite has his and her dressing rooms and a large separate bathroom.
The far north wing of the house and accessed via a separate stairway is a bedroom suite (over 27’ overall) with en suite shower room and bedroom/study off.
Woodcutters is set back from the lane and approached through electrically operated double gates onto a sweep of gravelled drive with the double garage flanking it to one side.
A fine ancient oak is at the heart of the front lawn and from the drive a stone path leads up to the double front doors.
The garden is specifically designed to encourage outdoor living and entertaining with a considerable expanse of stone paving and a raised timber dais overlooking the lawn. There is a side door linking the sauna with the hot tub on the terrace.
The main lawn to the rear is broken by a kidney shaped reflection pool (housing grass carp). To one side is a herbaceous and shrub border and the other a bed with semi-mature conifer trees. The main garden is enclosed by timber fencing.
The adjacent paddock, bounding the northern side of the property, is enclosed by post and rail fencing and planted with a variety of trees including silver birch, oak, sugar maple and liquid amber some especially to give autumn colour.
To one side is also a netted fruit cage and vegetable patch with a substantial timber garden shed.
