A truly magnificent detached family home, set just off a private drive, standing in generous private gardens. Glenburne is an elegant and original five bedroom mansion enjoying a private and secluded location on Chapel Lane in Hale Barns, the property was extensively refurbished in 2019. Its graceful lines pay homage to the most admired architectural flourishes of the Arts and Crafts period yet it remains individual and contemporary in design and yields spacious living accommodation tailored to a 21st Century luxury lifestyle. Over 7,000 sq ft of living space is offered across three intelligently designed levels - a basement, ground level and first floor. A central entrance leads through to a large and dramatic dining hall. The oak staircase leads to the basement and the first floor with its large galleried landing. On one side of the property, the hall leads through to an open-plan day room, breakfast area and kitchen with a bespoke range of units by Oakley of Altrincham incorporating Gaggenau and Bosch appliances, book matched marble island unit, breakfast station and a Quooker tap. This space is guaranteed to be the hub of the home hosting daily family gatherings. On the other side of the dining hall lies a large drawing room with a stunning fireplace by Chesneys of London providing a formal entertaining space, along with a separate large study or further sitting room. From the galleried landing lies four double bedrooms, all en suite and one with private access to the family bathroom. The master bedroom also includes a dressing room which has, again, been fitted by Oakley of Altrincham. There is also a door to a private balcony overlooking the rear of the property from the bedroom. The bathrooms and en suites feature sanitary ware from Villeroy and Boch. The basement at Glenburne demonstrates just how useful a third floor can be to todays modern home. Here space is provided for a guest suite with bathroom, large laundry room with potential to be a second kitchen if required, home office, home cinema/games room, home gym and plant room. Rather than being encased below ground, the rear of the basement opens onto a large sun terrace with a southerly aspect which ensures daylight is allowed to filter into the rooms at this level. The terrace can be accessed via doors from the home cinema, laundry/utility room and guest bedroom or via steps from the rear gardens. Glenburne offers underfloor heating protecting the aesthetics of the interior whilst maintaining a comfortable temperature around the home. All windows are lockable. British Standard 5 lever mortice locks are fitted to the entrance door and a security system with door and motion sensors to NACOSS Standard installed. Smoke detectors are fitted throughout the property. The property is accessed through electric gates with video entry. Video entry can also be viewed remotely. CCTV cameras are installed in the property and grounds. All the rooms within the home offer programmable mood lighting. In keeping with the refined style and elegance of this lovely home, Glenburne resides in equally impressive landscaped grounds. Mature trees and shrubs have been preserved and are complemented by new borders and lawned areas yielding spaces for relaxation and alfresco entertaining.
