DESCRIPTION Having undergone extensive renovation and extension work of the highest quality, High Banks, a most impressive detached family home, is offered for sale with no onward chain. The property has been thoughtfully refurbished throughout, providing a very well proportioned family home, measuring approx. 1920 sq. ft. There is a superb mix of characterful features, such as the beamed ceiling in the entrance hall, coupled with contemporary design.
When entering the property, there is a hall with staircase to the first floor accommodation and useful storage cupboard underneath. An opening from the hall provides an intriguing view through to the extended kitchen / dining room and the rear garden. At the front of the property, either side of the entrance hall, are two good size reception rooms, both with large double glazed bay windows and wood burners.
The kitchen has been tastefully fitted with a range of matching floor and wall units in a traditional style, providing ample storage and finished with 'soft-close' doors and solid wood work surfaces. The kitchen also includes an inset ceramic sink unit with stainless steel mixer taps, integrated dishwasher, fridge-freezer and brand new freestanding oven with modern extractor over. Enjoying plenty of natural light, the vaulted roof extension to the rear provides a wonderful dining / family area, with space for large a table and chairs. Double glazed bi-fold doors then open fully to the rear garden creating a excellent entertaining space. Located off the kitchen is a separate utility room with further sink unit, plumbing for washing machine, floor-standing boiler for the oil central heating and door to the garden. In addition, there is a downstairs cloakroom, with low level WC, wash hand basin and double glazed window to the side of the property.
On the first floor, there are four bedrooms and a spacious, modern family bathroom. The Master bedroom has two sets of built in double wardrobes and a well-appointed en-suite, with double shower. There are three further bedrooms, two of which are nicely proportioned doubles. The family bathroom, which measures 12'1 x 12, comprises low level WC, wall-mounted wash hand basin, double shower cubicle and a contemporary free-standing bath with central taps. The bathroom has been finished with a polished tiled floor, modern tiled splash backs and two double glazed frosted windows.
We understand the property also benefits from a cellar, which provides additional storage, if required.
OUTSIDE Access from Binegar Lane leads into an open, private driveway which provides off road parking for numerous vehicles and is enclosed by stone walling. The parking area also includes a detached double garage, which has an electric 'up and over' door, light, power and personal door at the back. There is an area of front garden which is soon to be laid to lawn and gated side access through to the generous size rear garden. Enclosed to each side by fencing, we understand the garden will be predominantly laid to lawn. The property has also been fitted with outside lighting.
