IMG_14033_1_originalThe town versus country debate has been long-standing, but suppose you could have it all?  Offering the perfect balance of village life with easy access to amenities, this detached four bedroom family home is ideal for the commuter or the growing family, who want to lead a quieter, slower paced lifestyle.  A refined contemporary finish complements the interior of this detached home that has permission to be extended further.  

Tongham village borders the A331 and Farnham, with the Hogs Back running along the northern borders of the village.  The property could not be more practically positioned, as a selection of village shops, the local pub, a recreation ground and the church are situated only a short walk from this detached home.  At the same time, the A331 and A31 provide easy access to London and nearby towns, including Farnham and Guildford.  The semi-rural village has a delightful community feel, with the village hall that was constructed in 1897 for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, currently homing a number of social gatherings.  This striking red brick structure has been preserved exceptionally well, as have the many character properties that surround the village, providing a subtle reminder of the village’s heritage and history.

Being constructed in 2003, this modern home stands in an elite plot of just two properties within a popular residential setting. Internally, the home has been exquisitely finished to a high specification and has a trendy contemporary feel throughout.  Well-proportioned living areas can be found throughout the home that extends over 1520sqft and has already been enhanced by the addition of a conservatory.  Having obtained planning permission for a two-storey extension to the side of the home and single-storey rear extension, the home offers a high degree of flexibility.

Measuring over 18ft in depth, the kitchen diner is an exceptional social space ideal for families and entertaining alike.  A range of contemporary gloss effect units border the kitchen that seamlessly tie in with the granite worktop surfaces, producing a sleek contemporary design.  An inset sink and integrated appliances including dishwasher, five ring gas hob and fridge freezer have all been stylishly incorporated within.

The living room is truly the heart of this home and has been enhanced by the addition of a conservatory that tenders views over the landscaped rear garden.  A continuation of dark wood flooring and light neutral walls flows throughout both spaces and couples well with the minimalist styling of this room, to create a bright and spacious feel.  A dramatic feature wall takes centre stage within the living area, showcasing the spectacular TV display unit.  Also benefiting from an integrated sound system, you have all the equipment you need for a cinema night with friends and family – all you need to remember is the popcorn.

Sophisticated styling and a high specification of finishing continue to the first floor of the home, where there are four bedrooms and a luxurious Jack and Jill bathroom suite.  Neutral colours and warm tones complement all four bedrooms, perfect for you to put your stamp on.  The Jack and Jill bathroom suite duly steals the show across this floor being the tranquil escape for you to enjoy at the end of the day, as it features a built-in TV system.  Large contemporary floor and wall tiles infuse a minimalist continental feel, as the skylight enhances the light and airy ambience of the bathroom.  Offering both a grand glass enclosed walk in shower and a tile enclosed bath, you are definitely spoilt for choice here.

IMG_14033_5_largeAll this is set in a delightful private plot occupied by just two properties, providing a pleasant sense of privacy and seclusion from the surrounding homes.  The front of the home is low maintenance with a large expanse of block paving leading up to the garage and entrance. Small shrubs and freestanding flower pots add character and individuality to the property, as a side gate leads to the rear garden.  The rear garden makes a delightful addition to the home and benefits from a southerly aspect.  In doing so, the garden enjoys much sunshine throughout the day, making it ideal for both lounging and gardening.  Extending up to 70ft in length, the garden is well tended and has been beautifully landscaped with mature plants and shrubs bordering the boundaries to create a high degree of seclusion and privacy.  The garden is largely laid to lawn, with an area of patio running the width of the home forming the ideal space for entertaining or relaxing with the family.

Presenting well-appointed living areas to suit a growing family, this detached contemporary four bedroom home has ample potential.  If you would like to know more or arrange a viewing please contact our Ash Vale team on 01252 353030 or email, ashvale@mackenziesmith.co.uk
