Aspley Heath




Alderman's Place offers a very rare opportunity to acquire a stunning family home nestled at the top of Aspley Heath with potential. The house enjoys a most idyllic position enclosed within a horseshow of mature trees and backing onto woodland. The house is approached over a sweeping in and out drive and enjoys a central position protected by grounds that surround on all sides. The house currently provides generous family accommodation over two floors with all rooms having picturesque views over the gardens and woodland beyond. The original house has been sympathetically extended and there is clearly further potential to incorporate the integral garage into the main accommodation. Alternatively, a number of precedents have been set locally and having regard for the plot's amazing position potential purchasers may consider the merits of a more substantial dwelling, subject to planning. Neither pictures or words can adequately portray the atmosphere and setting of Alderman's Place and a viewing will be essential to appreciate the lifestyle and development possibilities it offers. THE ACCOMMODATION A brick porch leads to the part glazed front door with glazed sidelights opening into the Amtico floored reception hall lying in the heart of the house with main reception rooms radiating off the dog leg staircase gently rising to galleried landing. The sitting room benefits from a double aspect and offers a great entertaining space with brick fireplace and sliding door onto rear terrace. Double doors open into the study with cloakroom and coat lobby adjoining. The dining room with matching sliding door overlooks the terrace and conveniently located adjoining the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is well equipped with bespoke range of base and eye level units with mottled black granite worksurface with inset 11/2bowl Franke stainless steel sink. The appliances are all by Siemens including oven, grill, microwave, five ring gas hob, dishwasher and American fridge/freezer. A Miele drinks fridge is well located next to the sliding door opening onto the main terrace. An archway divides the kitchen from the breakfast room with brick fireplace. The rear hall allows access to the larder, fitted utility room, second cloakroom and pedestrian door to the integral double garage which is currently being used a fitness studio with stairs rising to the gym above. FIRST FLOOR The master bedroom lies at the end of the galleried landing and is of generous size enjoying a triple aspect with en suite shower room. Four remaining double bedroom all benefit from views over the front or rear grounds and are served by the family bathroom with corner shower cubicle. OUTSIDE Alderman's Place is approached over a sweeping in and out private drive with electrically operated security gates. The delightful grounds surround the house on all sides offering a high degree of privacy. A close boarded fence defines the external boundaries with the main grounds laid to lawn. Mature oak and scots pine trees grace the boundaries and provide an excellent backdrop. Lying to the rear of the house is a west facing block paved seating and dining terrace along with a decked area, all overlooking the rear lawn that gently falls away to the boundary and mature woodland beyond.
