petty-3Are you looking for a stylish family home with generous proportions and an accessible location? Well, we may have just found the one for you…

At first glance, you could be lured into thinking that this detached property is a conventional, new build, three bedroom home. In actual fact, it has been spruced up with a sizeable extension, a clever reconfiguration and a chic vintage flair to establish a welcoming family home.

The pastel hues and chic interior synergise with the natural surroundings of Petty’s Brook, Chineham which is suitably located for the whole family; close to amenities, schools and major road links.  

Taking its name from a small stream that runs through Chineham, Petty’s Brook is a modern residential cul de sac that rests along the north eastern fringes of Basingstoke. Formerly open green land, the area today offers families everyday conveniences. Great play areas and schools for the children are within close distance, whilst the A33 and M3 provide great connections for commuting. Chineham retains footpaths and areas of green offering a suitable backdrop for family walks or a morning jog and a haven for local wildlife. You are also just a short distance from the bustling centre of Basingstoke, offering a multitude of shops and recreational facilities, including Anvil Concert Hall and Haymarket Theatre.

petty-5We often seek out the heart of the home, a room to relax with family and use extensively on a daily basis. This home offers the entire ground floor for this, as the open plan arrangement unifies the spaces, As such, the overall living space across the ground floor extends over 38ft in depth.

Sitting to the front of the home, the spacious kitchen/breakfast room extends the width of the property and measures over 19ft in depth. Tiled flooring complements the bright dual aspect room, which enjoys a view over the rear garden and also benefits from direct access to the outdoors. The sociable living space has plenty of room for a breakfast table and other furnishings, which marries well with the country cottage décor to establish an inviting and restful space. Classic white units and solid oak worktops border one end of the kitchen, with the butler’s sink suitably completing the style. A walkway offers an open view through to the dining room and in turn the living room, both of which emulate the generous proportions of the kitchen.

img_20434_8_largeThe traditionally styled rooms are light and bright spaces that offer versatility in use. It is, however, the living room that sets this home apart. The distinct vaulted ceiling gives a pleasant sense of space, whilst the bi-folding doors allow for a casual flow out to the garden, making it a functional space, ideal for families and entertaining guests.

These charming attributes carry through to the first floor landing, which presents another layer of stylish spaces. It is clear from here that a lot of hard work has gone into creating this family home. This former four bedroom property has combined two bedrooms to create a spacious master bedroom with an en suite shower and built in wardrobes. Two further bedrooms and the refitted family bathroom complete the offerings of this level. The family bathroom continues to draw on the vintage styling, with the freestanding roll top, claw foot bath forming a predominant feature of the room.

Yet more effort has gone into the surrounding outdoor spaces, which harmonise with the simple styling that flows throughout the interior of the home. An expanse of lawn fills the garden, which has been supplemented by an area of raised decking that adjoins the rear of the home. Freestanding pots and img_20434_17_originalplants complete the garden suitably, adding character and interest that present an attractive backdrop. The front of the property is thoroughly functional, offering a double garage and off road parking.

With top marks for style, generous proportions and versatility in use, it would be fair to say the vendors have optimised the space well to deliver an ideal family home.
