With the school holidays over and routine back in play, perhaps the realisation has set in that the family could do with more space; private spaces, not so open plan spaces, soundproof spaces, and not least, room to breathe spaces. This is exactly what Lubina, a modern five bedroom detached home, delivers generously.
Set beyond a gated development, this privately positioned home promises functionality to suit the whole family. While the little-known location of Hawley is practical for families, let’s begin by elaborating on the grand interior which presents almost 3000sqft of versatile living space across two floors.
Built by a local developer just 15 years ago, Lubina presents a unique home that has been designed with modern living in mind. A grand entrance hall guides you into the generous interior, where well-connected living areas complement the ground floor, while the soundproof first floor presents five good sized bedrooms and three bathroom suites.
The sociable ground floor is made up of three versatile reception rooms, in addition to an open plan conservatory/kitchen/breakfast room, which will certainly form the heart of the home. Quality finishes complement this light and airy space that has been practically arranged to fulfil the fundamental family functions of seating, eating and dining. Resting to the rear of the property, this open plan living area opens to the mature private garden, drawing in plenty of natural light, while offering versatile use of the outdoor area; ideal for entertaining in the summer months. The designer kitchen makes a stylish addition, offering a range of integrated appliances while adjoining a utility room with further space for appliances.
The three further reception rooms present versatile additions to the home, offering use as a study/office, dining and living room. Both the dining and living room enjoy a welcoming sense of character, as bay windows introduce plenty of natural light. These sizeable living areas are connected by double doors, giving you that desirable sense of privacy when you just need a break from the rest of the household. The opulently styled spaces are indeed relaxing, with a feature fireplace forming an endearing focal point of the lounge, while the dining room opens to the outdoors and open plan living area.
Talking of relaxing, the first floor makes a rarely found contribution to the home. Finished with concrete flooring, this level presents soundproof spaces, so you can be rest assured that the stamping of feet and slamming of doors won’t echo in your ears. The sizeable first floor continues to deliver the premise of practicality, offering five bedrooms and three bathroom suites. Four of the bedrooms are good sized doubles with built-in wardrobes, two of which also contain en suite shower rooms. The third bathroom forms the main family bathroom, fully tiled to offer a four piece suite, including a panel enclosed bath and glass enclosed shower.
Evidently, the interior proves to deliver something for the whole family, but the external grounds and location is equally comparable. The attentively landscaped grounds, set within a private gated development, give the home a wonderful outlook, with the front accommodating a triple garage and plenty of parking. An established setting continues to the private rear garden, which sweeps along the rear and side of the home. This private outdoor space has been practically arranged for families, with areas of lawn and a choice of seating areas for entertaining. Mature hedges and plants enclose the outdoors, giving you and your family a pleasant sense of privacy and seclusion.
And finally, onto that all important location. The private semi-rural location would work perfectly for families and commuters. Set along a quiet country lane, this family friendly development is made up of similar detached family homes, all by the same developer. The gated development enjoys an established setting, just a short drive from the A30, A3 and M3 connecting you to London and the southern regions. Blackwater station is another commuter’s aid, serving regular links to Gatwick and Reading. Schools prove another bonus to the setting, with many reputable schools complementing the location, including the highly regarded independent school Hawley Place, that is just a stroll away.
Along a quiet country lane lies an exclusively gated development, within this gated development lies a modern five bedroom family home with an established private garden, within this modern family home lies masses of family spaces….how the rest of the story unfolds is now up to you.
