A beautiful period five bedroom family home situated on a plot in excess of 0.4 acres with a lovely south facing garden.
On entering Balcary one is immediately struck by the abundance of character and charm, from the beautifully crafted original front door which leads through to the attractive entrance hall.
The striking central staircase is an attractive focal point whilst oak floor boards provide a seamless link from the entrance hall to the principal reception rooms and through to the kitchen/ breakfast room.
The sitting room is of generous proportions with a feature fireplace with stone surround and the curved bay window to the rear aspect which floods the room with natural light and offers views over the garden beyond. The dining room is equally well proportioned with French doors onto the terrace- there is also a feature gas fire with stone surround. Divided by clever folding glass and Oak doors, the dining room flows through into the kitchen/ breakfast/ family room, a fantastic space which has been intelligently designed and provides an ideal environment for family gatherings or entertaining. The kitchen itself, by Simon Taylor, showcases the usual attention to detail and no expense spared with quadruple Miele ovens, (two electric fan ovens, steam oven and microwave), induction hob and dishwasher. There is also an integrated full length Siemens fridge and a separate drinks storage area. The family area is split level yet open plan to the kitchen with French doors onto the terrace. A separate utility with full length integrated freezer, cloakroom, playroom and good size study with views over the delightful south facing rear garden, complete the ground floor accommodation.
Stairs lead from the main entrance hall to the light and airy first floor landing. The master suite comprises a beautifully spacious room with dressing area with built in wardrobes and ensuite bathroom which has been recently updated to a very high specification with underfloor heating, surround sound and tv. To the other end of the landing is the guest bedroom with ensuite shower room and there are three further good sized bedrooms, family bathroom and generous storage room. The master and bedroom two both have access to an attractive rear balcony with views over the garden and countryside beyond.
Balcary is approached via attractive gates leading to the paved driveway, which alongside the detached double garage offers ample parking for numerous vehicles. The generous and private rear garden can be accessed via the side of the property and is mainly laid to lawn with a secure perimeter of wooden fencing softened by a variety of mature shrubs and trees.
The raised paved terrace which spans the width of the property provides a flexible space in which to entertain with doors from both the kitchen/breakfast/family room and dining room leading to outside.
