Larch House

This stylish home was built in 2014 and has a super contemporary style, embracing space and light to enhance the open plan, first floor living area. The triple aspect and spacious living room was designed to make the most of the elevated position and fine views, with bi-fold doors opening to a covered balcony.
The spacious and smart fitted kitchen offers plenty of storage and is complemented by a full range of integrated Bosch appliances, including electric oven and combination microwave, an induction hob with extractor hood, a wine cooler and Insinkerator hot water tap. The large kitchen island with granite top provides an excellent work surface.
The kitchen also has a full-length fridge and separate similar freezer, a dishwasher, attractive granite work-surfaces and travertine flooring to complete this fabulous space. Bifold doors give direct access to the part-walled patio terrace and outdoor seating area.

Larch House (continued)

A generous entrance hall with double-height ceiling leads through to the ground floor bedroom accommodation, comprising four double bedrooms, two being en-suite plus a family bathroom, all with Porcelanosa fittings. There is a useful small utility/plant room off the hall, a useful space for the washing machine and tumble dryer. A bespoke oak and glass staircase leads up to the first-floor accommodation.
The generous main bedroom suite is a fabulous space and has a large en-suite shower room with double, walk-in rainfall shower. There are two, large built-in wardrobes which offer lots of storage. Two further double rooms also have fitted wardrobes. The fourth bedroom is currently used as a study and sitting room.
