4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
Once you enter the property you are greeted by a large and welcoming hallway, it is here that you first notice the high quality that is expected in a Potton home. Walking through the door almost directly in front of you, you arrive to what is the current vendors' favourite room in the house, the kitchen/dining room. It is not until you sit down at the table and look out the large windows overlooking the garden that you really appreciate why this room has such a special place in the owner's heart. Firstly, it faces south, so it is always naturally bright. The room is designed to entertain and has held many family meals and games shared. The doors open to the garden where the Indian runner ducks might be having their breakfast, if the black birds haven't pinched it, or any other number of native birds that frequent the area that have come in to explore the garden.
The current vendors love to entertain, and this house has been designed just for that. Take the formal dining room and formal sitting room for example, they have been a favourite for Christmas Day. The meal starts in the dining room, with the fire roaring, the turkey being cut at the table and the kids running around with their new toys. Once the plates are empty, the family would walk around the corner and retire in the formal sitting room packed with character and a large inglenook open fireplace. It is a perfect place to have a drink and see the night out. Over the course of the life of the property the owners would often split the house down the middle with the parents in the formal side and the children entertained in the family/TV room with attached art room.
The previously mentioned art room has been an extremely versatile space over the lifetime of the property, at one stage it was the playroom which evolved as the kids grew from small children to teenagers. It's been used as a granny flat for the vendor's elderly mum and now with its large south facing windows it makes a wonderful art room.
Upstairs there are four double bedrooms; the primary bedroom is a good size, with vaulted ceilings and large impressive beams being featured throughout many of the rooms upstairs.
The real jewel in the crown must be the garden. The current owners have spent much of their 20 years at the property creating what is now a gardener's paradise. It has been cleverly planted with a lovely mix of mature shrubs, trees and flowers. It has been expertly designed so that as one bed dies down another starts to flourish, so there is always an area of interest or some bright spark of colour. Dedicated seating areas where breakfasts are taken, and barbecues in the evening, for the sun worshippers a decked area or relax in the shade in the hammocks.
