A spacious, contemporary five-bedroom detached family home arranged over three floors set in beautiful landscaped gardens within the heart of Shamley Green.
Blendelm was built 18 years ago and has been occupied by the current owners for the past 15 years. It offers truly flexible and versatile accommodation over three floors.
The house is hidden from the road by a bank of mature oak trees and hedging and you pass through a leafy arch to a private drive which also has ample parking.
A contemporary styled arched oak double front door leads through to a vaulted entrance hallway.
The beautiful open plan reception space runs the full width of the house with five double doors opening to the terrace and is cleverly separated in four distinct areas. At the south end a seating area is arranged and centred by a contemporary white stone gas fireplace with a long black granite media bench; the dining area sits in the middle of the room facing the garden; the kitchen area is positioned to the north end of the room and, finally, a family/TV area is positioned off to the front of the house but is still open to the kitchen and main reception area. This really is a fantastic space for entertaining and staying connected as a family.
The kitchen has a bespoke stainless-steel island that houses an inset four burner gas hob with a curved glass and stainless-steel extractor overhead. The island also serves as a breakfast bar with plenty of space for seating. The kitchen wall units are finished in a high gloss cream unit with stainless steel worksurfaces below. Other features include an integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher and clever hidden drawer pack units. Smart lighting can be adjusted according to the atmosphere required. To the right of the kitchen is a walk-in pantry with shelving and a range wall of units. A separate prep kitchen/utility room has plenty of cupboard space, beech worksurfaces, a sink unit and space for laundry appliances.
Leading from the entrance hall is an inner hallway that gives access to the downstairs shower room and playroom/home office/gym.
A beautiful cherry turning staircase with tread lighting leads to the first floor where a broad, part galleried landing provides access to the upper floors.
The master bedroom suite has very generous proportions and enjoys lovely views across the gardens and the matures oak trees beyond. The large en-suite bathroom includes a full-size Jacuzzi, a shared vanity unit with his and hers circular basins and an oversized shower tray with a rain water shower over.
The guest suite is also well sized with a specialist Japanese deep soak tub and bespoke turned wooden wash hand basin.
There are a two further spacious double bedrooms and the family bathroom on this floor.
A second staircase leads to the upper floor which is given over to a fifth double bedroom with en-suite shower room.
Throughout the property you will find specialist feature lighting which highlights small architectural features, alcoves, hallways, landings and stair treads. All controlled by a Lutron lighting system.
The front garden is afforded a great deal of privacy and screening from the road by several mature oak trees and mature hedging. A gravelled driveway provides ample parking for six cars and leads to a detached garage with barn style doors.
The rear garden has been meticulously planned and is planted with an array of herbaceous shrubs, spring bulbs and summer blooms offering a different scene every season. A westerly facing, full width terrace offers the perfect place for a sun loungers and alfresco dining.
There is a circular lawn with flower bed borders.
A wooded play area is separated from the main lawn by mature beech hedging.
