Silver Birch is an impressive and unique detached property, enjoying a superb rural location along a quiet country lane, and benefits from open views and a substantial plot. The property is perfectly suited to modern lifestyles, and for those who entertain, it has a wonderfully spacious semi-open plan layout, with high specification finishes throughout.
The property is entered via twin doors flanked by glazed apertures, to a wonderful and spacious reception hall with a vaulted ceiling, Velux rooflights, oak flooring and a large storage cupboard. A square arch accesses the principal reception areas, all of which have oak flooring, and they are arranged in an 'L' shape, and are situated to the rear of the property comprising the sitting room, dining room and kitchen/breakfast room.
The sitting room has an impressive vaulted ceiling with concealed bulkhead lighting, a triple aspect with views to the grounds, and full width bi-fold doors to the terrace and garden. It is segregated from the dining area by an attractive partition, which houses a twin gas fire with remote control and glass panels. The dining area is particularly spacious, with a part vaulted ceiling and a pair of French doors accessing the terrace and garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is a stunning space with a part vaulted ceiling, and has full width bi-fold doors on the rear elevation accessing the terrace. It is extensively fitted with a German 'Schulleri' kitchen with 'corian' worktops, a substantial island unit with breakfast bar, preparation sink, wine chiller and two further sinks in the peripheral units. The majority of the integral appliances are all 'Neff' and include, two freezers, four ovens, a combi oven, 4 pull out draw fridges and two dishwashers. The hobs are all 'AEG' induction units, which include a wok hob, griddle and extractor. This layout has been designed with entertaining in mind, and is perfectly suited for large family gatherings and parties.
There is a practical utility room with a tiled floor, which is extensively fitted and has an integral washer and dryer. There is a large airing cupboard housing the boiler, a door to the rear garden, and a further door to a well-appointed cloakroom.
The living and sleeping components of the property are distinctly segregated, and if a new owner wished to create an integral annexe this could readily be accommodated to facilitate multi-generational living. The study is situated in this part of the property, and has views to the front, oak flooring, and a large built-in cupboard.
The principal bedroom is west facing with French doors to the terrace, and has a dual aspect, it is a generously proportioned room, and has a square arch to a fully fitted dressing room, beyond which is a lavishly appointed en-suite with a rectangular bath, large walk-in shower, vanity unit and a matching wc. It is worth noting that all the bedrooms have en-suite facilities, which are fitted in the same style with high quality modern finishes and sanitary ware.
The guest suite is situated to the front elevation, and has views to the grounds, a square arch leads to a spacious dressing room, beyond which is the en-suite shower room. There are three more spacious bedrooms, all of which have en-suite shower rooms, with one of these bedrooms at the rear elevation which has French doors to the terrace, and an en-suite with a bath and shower.
Silver Birch is approached via a large carriage drive with two pairs of electric ornamental wrought iron gates, there is extensive parking to the front, which approaches a detached double garage. A path leads to the front door and continues round the property to meet the rear terrace on both sides. There is wrought iron fencing to the front by the lane, behind which is a laurel hedge, silver birch and fir trees. There is a large semi-circular lawn flanking the drive and planting to the front of the property.
On the North side a five-bar gate accesses an extensive area of hardstanding which leads to a detached triple cart lodge which is equipped with electric roller doors, beyond here is a further gate accessing a further fenced area of hard standing where there is a stable building, which has two bays and a tack room, a dedicated washing area and adjacent to this is a manege.
The gardens comprise large areas of lawn, which abut extensive entertaining terraces which benefit from a south and westerly aspect, making them ideal for family entertaining. Large expanses of lawn are interspersed with native trees which include two impressive oaks, and a pond provides a focal point. On the southerly side is an enclosed area that the current owners use as a secure dog run. The remainder of the grounds comprise post and rail fenced paddocks with mature hedge and there is also a field shelter.
