Oakfield house is largely hidden by well-tended hedges that create a sense of occasion as one sweeps onto the gravel drive and gets the first impression of the sheer scale of the building.
At the centre of the home is a large kitchen well designed to cater for entertaining with a five-ring gas hob above a double width oven (with additional eyelevel oven and microwave) as well as a 12 place dishwasher, two separate fridge/freezers and a wine cooler. The expansive granite work surfaces continue over the central island between the kitchen and breakfast area.
The formal dining room has French windows to the garden and a pair of glazed doors lead to the drawing room. This impressive room naturally divides into two distinct areas: the comfortable carpeted sitting area is arranged around a gas coal effect fire. The far end of the room has a high, eye-catching vaulted ceiling above a hardwood floor creating the ideal acoustics for a music area that is large enough to comfortably accommodate a grand piano.
At the other end of the house are a suite of rooms that, with minimal alteration, could become a self-contained annex. There is a third impressive reception room with a glazed wall and gable on the southern side with views across a tranquil gravelled garden. A spiral staircase opposite leads to a further bedroom (previously used as a study) and ensuite shower room. The utility and adjacent storeroom have the makings of a good annex kitchen.
The main staircase rises to an elegant, wide landing off which there are four double bedrooms (all with built-in wardrobes and views across the wonderfully mature gardens) and a modern family bathroom with a deep bath and wide shower cubicle.
The master bedroom leads to a vast ensuite designed to be a haven for self-indulgent pampering. There is an open shower beside a corner spa bath, beautiful mosaic tiling and generous hand basins with storage below.
Two of the garage doors visible from the forecourt are electrically operated and lead to a double garage with light and power. The loft room above is used as a gymnasium (equipment to be included in the sale) and is accessed by a loft ladder. A small doorway has been created to one side to allow stair access from the music room (subject to consents). The final garage door leads to a useful store room and there is secure gated side access to the rear garden.
Oakfield House has the rare distinction of being equally attractive from the rear as it is from the front. There are three main areas garden on the southern side of the house.
The first of these is a gravel garden lined with a row of specimen trees opposite elegant scalloped trellising. Stepping stones meander past a pair of wrought iron gates on the way to the substantial outhouse. This has an enchanting 'fairy tale' appearance with a pair of picturesque arched doors and a homely chimney above the wood burner inside. Adjacent to the house is a paved terrace leading to the main area of garden that is framed by a mixture of topiary, ornamental trees, shaped terraces and a neatly clipped hedge with central arch leading through to a less formal area of lawn - ideal for owners of dogs.
The garden has a bright, sunny south easterly aspect and is afforded a high degree of privacy by a mixture of walling and carefully chosen mature trees.
It is the agents opinion that this may sensibly be described as a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a truly individual high calibre home
