A BEAUTIFULLY EXTENDED AND REMODELLED FAMILY HOME SET IN 3.5 ACRES OF STUNNING MATURE GARDENS (sts) THE PROPERTY Woodpecker House sits centrally within 3.5 acres of the most picturesque gardens and grounds, but also in a position that is beyond comparison for any golfer, overlooking the 9th hole of the nationally acclaimed Royal Worlington and Newmarket Golf Club. The house itself is every bit as impressive as the surroundings. The internal accommodation has been the subject of a wonderful renovation that has combined incredible attention to detail and significant expenditure to form the current home that stands today. In an era where open plan living is extremely popular, Woodpecker House provides expansive living areas, including a dining room, sitting room and a snug, ideal for family and entertaining alike. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with integral Bosch appliances, fitted Shaker style units with solid Iroko and granite worktops and granite breakfast bar. One of the most incredible features of the house is that every room appears to enjoy a special view. The conservatory looks across the parkland setting. The master bedroom is beyond generous in size and has a magnificent en-suite shower room. The bathrooms again highlight the quality throughout the house, with beautiful travertine floors, spacious showers and contemporary sanitaryware. Bedroom 2 has double doors that open out directly onto the gardens and also benefits from a well-appointed en-suite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms. OUTSIDE The grounds at Woodpecker House are intriguing. A winding driveway through mature trees approaches this magnificent property, leading to a sweeping gravel driveway to the front and side. The property has 3.5 acres of parkland that has been carefully crafted and opened out to take full advantage of the beautiful surroundings. The alarmed triple garage has three extra-high electric roller shutters to the front, car maintenance pit and loft storage, with a large workshop to the rear offering separate access. From the conservatory a large expanse of terrace creates a superb environment for al fresco dining and sitting beside the heated outdoor swimming pool, a great area for summer entertainment. The mature gardens are a feature of the property, providing a high degree of privacy and protection with the benefit of garden stores, wood sheds and a greenhouse.
