A hidden gem set within over ½ acre of stunning gardens, less than a mile from Hale village. Originally constructed in 1922 of stone elevations, this highly impressive, one of a kind house has been subject to a complete refurbishment programme during 2019/2020 to form a stunning family house which pays attention to fine detail and a high specification. The vibrant colour palette has been meticulously chosen to seamlessly complement one another to form a warm and inviting home of exceptional quality. The entrance foyer opens to a spacious reception hall which leads to the principal reception rooms. These include a formal drawing room with a modern gas log effect fire contained in a hand carved stone fireplace, a TV/Living room with a built-in wall unit with a 65'' TV, soundbar and modern electric log fire, and a study, again with an electric log fireplace. To the rear of the property there is a substantial living dining kitchen with bi-fold doors leading to a large rear deck with an open aspect overlooking the gardens beyond. Within the kitchen there is also a rear door leading to an enclosed side courtyard. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a WC and large utility room which leads to the integrated garage. Additionally, set above the utility and garage is a good sized one-bedroom annexe with en-suite and sitting room, perfect for a live-in nanny or au-pair. The basement includes a laundry room and plenty of storage and is where the two new boilers and communications cupboard can be found.
