The Property
Originally built in the 1960s, Chartwell has been substantially extended and remodelled over the years to create a truly magnificent home, in a picturesque setting and a much sought after location. The home is of solid traditional construction with locally sourced Michelmersh bricks, hardwood windows with toughened glass, a clay tiled roof with bonnet hips and swept valleys. The accommodation, which is laid out over three floors, extends to just over 6,000 Sq. Ft. (557.4 Sq. Mt). The ground floor flows in such a way that it is perfect for entertaining and family alike, the perfect space for modern living. The majority of the rooms have views over the beautiful grounds, the sitting room and main family room enjoy open fire places, the kitchen/breakfast room features granite work top surfaces and integrated appliances, the study is a fantastic space for working from home. An oak staircase from the main entrance hallway and a further oak staircase from the study lead to the first floor. The large and wonderfully light landing provides access to the family bathroom, double airing cupboard and five double bedrooms, all of which benefit from built in wardrobes and none of which adjoin each other. The principle bedroom has access to a walk in wardrobe with ‘his and hers’ hanging space and drawers, access is also provided to a five piece en-suite and two sets of double doors open out to a balcony enjoying views over the south facing rear garden. One of the bedrooms would serve perfectly as a play room/family room, as would the bedroom/hobbies room on the second floor which also benefits from a balcony overlooking the garden. The large double garage has two electric up and over doors, power, lighting, a utility area and ‘Vaillant’ boiler installed in 2021.
