An utterly charming five-bedroom detached Edwardian family home, beautifully appointed with exceptional reception space and all immaculately presented.
Swinley House is a delightful Edwardian family home that has been meticulously designed throughout whilst retaining many original character features. Approached via twin sets of electric gates that open to a substantial gravel parking area. Entrance to the house is via a covered porch that leads to a substantial reception hall with Italian marble flooring. The main drawing room has wonderful floor to ceiling box bay windows overlooking the gardens; the southerly light coupled with high ceilings add a real sense of volume to this opulent reception room. Double doors lead to the dining room with a central fireplace and fabulous box seated windows.
A bespoke classic styled kitchen sits to the rear of the house and hosts ample cabinets, a central island, and a six-burner range style cooker. A few steps down lead to the breakfast room and around into the family room. The study has been fully fitted with bespoke cabinetry, shelving and fitted desk unit making the perfect space to work from home. A utility room, boot room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.
An elegant low rise and broad staircase leads from the reception hall to a wide half landing with a substantial picture window, and further up to a spacious galleried landing. The Master bedroom enjoys a southerly aspect with a separate dressing room and full en-suite bathroom. Three further double bedrooms and family bathroom are all accessed from the landing. The fifth double bedroom and 2nd shower room can be accessed either from the back stairs via the kitchen area or via the fourth bedroom. This can be completely separated creating the ideal space for an au pair or guest accommodation.
The gardens wrap around Swinley House and have been beautifully landscaped with very well stocked flower bed borders, mature shrubs, and specimen trees. A variety of raised deck areas and patios offer plenty of places to sit and entertain throughout the day. The main aspect of the garden is facing South. On the Eastern side of the house a substantial decked terrace has two large raised Koi Carp ponds and a wonderful area for garden dining.
A detached brick-built garage and gym can be accessed from the garden or main driveway. In addition, there is a timber-built car port and garden store. The main driveway offers ample parking for six plus cars.
