There’s a clever little secret at the heart of this roomy, neatly-designed four-bedroom home with its distinctive roofline.
But before we get there, let’s talk about the sense of arrival that Stonewood’s designers have created for when you walk through the front door. The generous open hallway feels as spacious as a hotel lobby, with room enough for furniture, such as a hall table or cabinet, without making it feel cramped.
Look up and there is natural light pouring from a skylight above the stairs to the first floor.
At the end of the hallway, the bright and busy kitchen/family room is where the hubbub from dinners and other occasions will fill the house with life. Open the sliding doors to the garden and you can let the fun spill out there as well.
The utility room just off the kitchen is ideal for tucking away the washing machine and tumble dryer, and has additional space to keep your kitchen clutter-free. There’s also a link door to the garage to make storing and retrieving things out there easier.
Back down the hall past the understairs storage cupboard and downstairs WC, the living room is another entertaining space, or just somewhere to relax together and take in a film. Two windows fill the room with light and the high ceilings add to the sense of roominess.
But what about that secret? Walk up to the first floor landing and discover a light and airy space at the top of the stairs plenty big enough to house extra storage or even a home office. The light streaming from the skylight makes it a calm, welcoming space that is perfect for working from home. It means you can have a home study without sacrificing a bedroom.
The master bedroom looks out across the back garden and has an en-suite with a shower. The second and third bedrooms are both big enough for double beds, while the fourth has space for a bed and a desk. There’s also a generous family bathroom.
Intelligent design and modern flexibility are the hallmarks of this ingeniously crafted family home.
