Fairmead is a substantial detached family home which is understood to date from the early 1950’s and provides exceptionally spacious and light accommodation arranged over two floors. The welcoming partial galleried entrance hall gives an instant sense of space. The reception rooms are ideally arranged for modern day living and entertaining. The drawing room has a bay window, attractive fireplace with coal-effect gas fire and glazed doors leading to the garden. The dining room is a generous room, again with a bay window and further doors to the garden.
Adjacent to the dining room is the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with an extensive range of units including a central island unit with a polished granite work surface. There are two AEG ovens, integrated Neff dishwasher and a De Dietrich American style fridge. There is also a walk-in larder cupboard and a part glazed door giving further access to the garden. A spacious sitting room and study with extensive built-in book shelving and cupboards complete the reception space. Also located on the ground floor is a guest suite comprising bedroom and bathroom, a utility room and two cloakrooms. On the first floor there are five double bedrooms, two with ensuite shower rooms and a well-appointed family bathroom. All of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and are particularly spacious.
The property is approached from the no-through road via two wooden five-bar entrance gates which give access to the sweeping carriage drive with extensive parking to one side. The front garden is laid predominantly to lawn and is enclosed by a mature beech hedge. Attached to one side of the house is a substantial garage with adjacent workshop/store area.
The principal garden lies to the rear of Fairmead and immediately adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room and the dining room is a wide paved terrace/seating area. From the terrace a paved and gravel path winds across the garden, bound on either side by two large lawns to the substantial summerhouse which is located at the end of the garden, has light, power and heating, wine fridge, two bench seats and a circular table. There is external power and ornamental lighting.
Screened from the main garden area by a mature clipped yew hedge is the kitchen garden with greenhouse, timber garden store and three raised beds.
The garden at Fairmead provides a lovely setting for this substantial and much loved family home. About 0.24 acre.
