4 Bedroom Detached House Sold STC
DESCRIPTION Guide price - £1,650,000 - £1,750,000
The Courtyard is a cleverly designed, eco-friendly family home that enjoys an elevated position with wonderful far-reaching views across the town and beyond. With private electric gates to the front and total privacy within the gardens, this remarkable contemporary build is a one off and undoubtedly one of the best houses we have had on our books.
A large Urban Front bespoke Iroko front door leads into an exceptionally spacious entrance with a bespoke German manufactured Iroko staircase taking centre stage. There is room for seating and furniture and to the right-hand side you will find three spacious double bedrooms, all of which enjoy en-suite shower facilities and indeed fitted wardrobes. There is also a ground floor WC and a large storage cupboard off the entrance which provides space for coats and shoes. Porcelain tiled flooring to all bathrooms, hallway and utility room.
The stairs lead firstly to the galleried landing which is currently used as an office, enjoying spectacular views across the chimney pots of Frome town. A room off the landing is used for files and office equipment as well as giving access to the boarded loft space. There is a remote controlled solar powered Velux window with rain sensor automatic closure function.
The master bedroom was deliberately placed on the first floor, in order to take full advantage of the South Easterly views across the town and over to Cley Hill and Longleat woods. An entire corner of this bedroom is glass, filling the room with natural light, whilst slider doors open up to a Juliet balcony. There is also a Velux window on the ceiling, with remote controlled solar powered blackout blind, allowing you to stargaze at night time.
Off the main bedroom is a very large dressing room with a vast amount of built-in wardrobe space and an island with further drawer storage. A door in this room similarly opens to a second Juliet balcony. Finally, there is a fabulous en-suite bathroom off the dressing room which includes a bath, separate shower, floating Iroko shelving housing the sink and a door onto another Juliet balcony. As far as master bedrooms go, this truly is a magnificent use of space.
The first reception room that you will find is the living room which is also filled with natural light and like the rest of the house, enjoys tall ceilings. Slider doors open onto the entertaining part of the garden which has a paved floor, total privacy and a wood burning oven in one corner. The most amazing space to enjoy family occasions and to entertain guests. Engineered oak flooring features under floor heating beneath, which runs throughout the house.
The main reception area incorporates the kitchen, dining area and second living area. It's a spectacular space with a huge amount of light, access onto the gardens and views across the Town. Engineered oak is under foot and a contemporary wood burner provides a focal point for the living area. The dining area comfortably takes a large table for 10 to seat and the kitchen includes a huge amount of fitted storage, a large island, granite work tops and integrated appliances to include an induction hob, fridge/freezer, plate warmer, eye level microwave and two ovens. There is a remote-controlled electric Velux window on the ceiling with rain sensor automatic closure function. Off the kitchen is a utility room with further storage, plumbing for the washing machine and dishwasher, granite worktops and access to the back garden.
OUTSIDE The Courtyard occupies a plot that measures approximately 0.37 of an acre. Access off a private road leading from Innox Hill that is shared with just a handful of other houses, electric gates to the front give complete security and privacy. Moving into the grounds you can comfortably park around 8 vehicles in addition to the oak framed double car port that houses PIR lights, a double power socket and 7kw EV charger for anybody that owns, or hopes to own, an electric car. The South Westerly facing gardens have been very cleverly landscaped with maximising enjoyment and minimal maintenance in mind. There are lawns across three separate levels that are decorated by a variety of plants, shrubs and fruit trees. There are also two sheltered seating areas in addition to the entertaining garden which lies between the slider doors from both reception rooms. There are two external water taps, courtyard lights and garden lights, PIR lights around the house and back and front doors. There are two solid sheds in the back garden.
VENDOR COMMENT The house has been built to a very high standard of energy performance. The house is run purely on electricity. An air source heat pump provides the energy to deliver hot water which feeds the underfloor heating as well as supplying showers, hand basins, sinks and the bath. Solar photo voltaic panels on the roof generate electricity which is used during the daylight hours to power the house whilst any surplus is sent to the National Grid. Because the house is very well insulated with double and triple glazed windows it is possible to programme each room to pre- set to temperatures. Overall due to the efficiency of the set up the net cost of powering the house for all its needs is less than 50p a day. This is due to a Feed in Tariff payment for each KWH generated by solar PV and renewable Heat Incentive payments for the ASHP.
