This unique home was designed by the current owner, an established local architect, in the early eighties and is now coming to the open market for the first time.
The house was designed by the family, for the family, and as such has an enviable position within the Courtmoor catchment area of Fleet. It was designed with the traditional North Hampshire building style in mind with tile hanging detail to the external walls and a low ‘cottage’ type pitch to the tiled roof; with internal design leaning to a ‘soft contemporary’ style, modern but without being sharp or clinical.
The spacious extended ground floor accommodation was planned with flexibility in mind, providing four reception rooms and a quirky studio/office with a distinctive glazed vaulted ceiling and double doors to the garden, creating a delightful space. Stunning Maple flooring continues throughout the ground floor reflecting the light from the large windows and adding an inviting warmth to the rooms.
The well proportioned lounge has a simple open fireplace and the dual aspect allows views across the grounds. Double doors lead through to the impressive dining room, benefitting from two sets of floor to ceiling windows with casement doors to the rear and side gardens.
The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with space and plumbing for appliances; the current owner suggests one of the opportunities to update this property would be to knock through from the kitchen to the dining room to create an extensive kitchen/dining room as is the current mode, if the new owner so wished.
The four bedrooms are on the first floor and enjoy delightful views over the private surroundings. The superb master suite features an extensive range of wardrobes, bespoke lighting and an en suite bathroom with ornate finishing touches including a glass wash hand basin on a granite top and an elegant spiral heated towel rail. One of the three further bedrooms features built in wardrobes and all share the use of the family bathroom with attractive natural tiling.
Perfect for families the ground floor and garden provide an excellent entertaining space, well oriented for barbeques and garden parties. The outdoor space is particularly good for the children with lots of space to play and use their imagination in a safe, quiet, private and enclosed environment.
Although this property is very personal to the current owner and will be hard to leave, the family are looking forward to moving on and building a new family home from scratch.
