5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
Located in the ever-popular village of Mattishall, hidden down a private cul-de sac and occupying arguably the best plot on this small bespoke development, which was originally built by the much-respected Abel Homes in 2000, we find 1 The Beeches.
Entering the property you step into a grand, but welcoming, double height entrance hallway, which all the primary ground floor reception rooms bar the orangery stem from.
The modern, high specification kitchen boasts marble worktops and a large kitchen island, creating a sociable and family friendly space. There is also the always useful utility room, with direct access to the garden. To one end of the kitchen there is ample room for a dining table and double doors lead into the orangery, offering spectacular views of the garden and an equally spectacular roof lantern, which allows this space to always be filled with natural light.
The orangery has been cleverly designed, not only to be a bright and airy space but also with usability in mind and double doors leading out to the garden. The addition of underfloor heating means the room, which is one of our vendor's favourite spots in the home, can be enjoyed year-round.
The spacious dining room has glass double doors, which open into the sitting room. This has always been a much-loved area of the home, especially over Christmas time with the fire roaring and a large spread of food on the table, it holds many lovely memories and now the potential for a new owner to create many more.
On the first floor you will find five bedrooms and the family bathroom, all of which are arranged around an impressively bright and spacious landing. The principal bedroom also benefits from an en-suite and a walk-in wardrobe.
To the front of the property is a large shingle driveway with ample parking in addition to the large triple garage. Behind the garage is what was once upon a time a well-used vegetable plot. With a little bit of love and hard work this space could be transformed back into a productive space or given a new lease of life with a different purpose.
To the rear is a large, west facing garden with many mature trees and shrubs. A hidden paved area, located behind a hedge, has been used to host all sorts of family gatherings, but is currently 'the stage' for a range of dance and make believe dramas performed by a much-loved granddaughter.
Nestled discreetly in one corner, looking back on the property, is a sweet little summer house of which the current vendor has shared many a happy memory.
