Full Details

Perfectly aligned for family life, this spectacular five-bedroom residence spans substantial proportions throughout, joined wonderfully by the south-facing garden, a tandem garage and a driveway for multiple vehicles. Built in the late 1940s, the home unites a modern yet classic aesthetic, beautifully implemented, maintained and presented.

Purchased in 2015 by a young family of three, over the last few years, they've grown into a family of four. Settling down in this remarkable house, they've appreciated the ability to easily watch the children across the open plan space, smoothly cycle to the local school, and comfortably accommodate play dates for the children-as well as parties for the adults!The owners "love being part of the idyllic village" of Biddenham with its "real community feel". The address offers nearby local amenities such as shops, The Three Tuns newly refurbished pub, tennis courts, the Towers health club and Harpur Trust Schools. Situated within a 20-minute walk or a 5- minute cycle to the mainline station for commuting, the home office set-up options are also a big benefit for remote working too.

Internally, through a stunning stained glass front door, there are pretty traditional elements such as herringbone parquet flooring and attractive coving, alongside contemporary aspects such as the light fittings and décor (painted in Farrow & Ball). From the hallway are doors to all ground floor rooms. The cloakroom and a cupboard are positioned under the staircase, and the playroom/study is to the right. To the left is the lounge, a vast and superbly presented room to relax or entertain, with inglenook fireplace, and open into the dining space for fantastic eating-to-chilling flow.

The open plan kitchen/dining room is just gorgeous. Fitted in white gloss units with unique granite worktops and brick-tiled splashbacks, there are integrated Bosch appliances including a five-ring gas hob with extractor, two ovens, a grill and a dishwasher. The fabulous central island has seen lots of family baking sessions, and the kitchen/dining room also has underfloor heating too, ensuring your bare feet are kept toasty and warm. An adjoining utility room allows for the separation of laundry duties. The dining space has bi-fold doors onto the garden, giving an exceptional inside-outside environment-and a prime wildlife-watching spot. Of particular note is the covered pergola, where there's the opportunity to enjoy the garden come rain or shine. The owner has even utilised this at Christmas time, staying warm with the overhead heaters (and mulled wine).


Upstairs, all five bedrooms are considerably sized doubles, with the three to the rear affording lovely outlooks over the garden. We really love the Cole & Sons wallpaper to bedroom three, as well as the capacity for dual desks to bedroom five. The en suite to the master has a five-piece suite, and the family bathroom and second en suite to bedroom four have four-piece suites. All bathrooms are immaculate, spacious with underfloor heating and equipped with modern fixtures and fittings with period-style features.

Outside, the handsome frontage is well-screened from the road by mature trees. The driveway and tandem garage provides off-road parking, and there are pillars to add gates if desired. The enclosed south-facing rear garden is a real advantage to the property. In spring, "there's always something flowering", and in winter, there are lots of evergreens. The neat central lawn is combined with the patio to the back of the house, a hot tub area, a pond with surrounding planting, a tool shed/lawnmower port, and a playground with a swing and slide. Hidden in the back corner is a secret treehouse-an additional first-floor property with an open-air kitchen for making mud pies.
