Silver Birches, Small Dole, Henfield
Hamlyn Smith are delighted to be marketing this wonderful, five-bedroom detached house, in a quiet close in Small Dole. Silver Birches is a prestigious development of only eleven houses, built in the 1990s to different designs. The house stands on a generous plot with a large garden, off-street parking and a garage. The front door opens to a wide entrance hall with stairs leading to the first floor. A solid oak floor runs from here through into a central dining room which has double doors to the outside, so the minute you come home, you can see through to the beautiful garden. To your left, is the kitchen/breakfast room, which has a bespoke Stoneham solid oak kitchen, with a granite ‘nero’ work surface. An impressive Mercury Range which includes a five-ring induction hob, two ovens and a grill stands to one side of the kitchen and there are also integrated appliances; a Neff integrated microwave, two integrated Miele fridge-freezers and an integrated Miele dishwasher. The kitchen extends into a generous breakfast room with space for a large table, from where you have views of the garden through double doors. The entire room has ceramic floor tiles, with underfloor heating. From the breakfast room, you can step out into the garden, in fact, this is one of many ways onto the garden, as there are also double doors from the living room and the dining room/snug. The garden is simply gorgeous, with silver birch trees, acers and a willow and a backdrop of ancient oaks in the protected woodland behind the development. Nearest the house, a patio area has space for a table and chairs. From the end of the garden, you have a spectacular view of the back of the house, where a wonderful wisteria and enormous jasmine, both climb the house and in their turns come into flower in May and June. Just off the kitchen is the utility room where there is space for a washing machine and separate dryer, there is also direct access to the side of the house from here; useful if you’re returning home with muddy boots or sports kit, that can go straight in the machine! There is also a coat room and a WC in this area, which all has underfloor heating, on a separate control to the kitchen /breakfast room. From here, there is a door into the double garage, which in addition to the car spaces, has ample storage, as the old kitchen units were all reinstalled here. Back to the other side of the house, there is a large reception room with an outlook onto the garden. Oak flooring and a gas fire with marble surround make this an elegant and inviting room and windows to three aspects ensure it is lovely and light. Off the living room, is a great size office space which overlooks the front garden. Upstairs are five incredibly generous bedrooms including two main bedrooms at either end of the house, which both have ensuite bathrooms, and an additional family bathroom which has both a bath and a separate shower cubicle. The bedrooms are accessed off a light and spacious central landing area with two large windows. The house has double glazing throughout and has gas central heating run from a Worcester Bosch boiler, located in the coat room. For security, an alarm system has been installed, with wireless controls.
