PROPERTY IN BRIEF This wonderful home is set within the much sought after 'Berkswell Gate' development, formally known as. Riddings Hill. Set at the top of the peaceful development, right by Lavender Hall Park and within easy walking distance to the village shops, Balsall Common Health Centre, local schools and Berkswell Train Station.

Once inside the property, you are greeted by a large hallway which creates a fantastic first impression. The main wow factor of the property is found in the extended and refitted open plan kitchen / diner/sitting room which offers large space for entertaining and modern family living. Whilst the kitchen has space for sofas and relaxing, there is also a separate lounge area with feature log burner and French doors to the rear garden. Also downstairs is a well sized and bright office, which is very useful in today's world of working from home. There is a practical utility room off the kitchen and a downstairs cloakroom. A double garage can be accessed internally and also via up and over doors from the driveway. Part of the double garage has been utilised for internal space but a large area remains for a car one side and plenty of storage to the other side.

A real USP of this property is the single story side extension which creates a self contained "annexe" set up consisting of lounge area with kitchenette, a well sized double bedroom and en-suite shower room.

A 'U-shaped' staircase leads to a really open and spacious landing which gives access to an additional 5 bedrooms, all of which are doubles and two of which have en-suites. There is also a modern re-fitted family bathroom which has both a bath and a shower. Finally there is a useful storage space and access to a part-boarded loft.

Externally there is a well maintained private garden which is largely laid to lawn but with a socialable patio area immediately from the house and a separate area at the bottom of the garden finished in stylish outdoor tiling to give an option of seating depending on whether you want to be in or out of the sun.

APPROACH The property is set in a wonderful cul-de-sac location tucked away from passing traffic. In front of the property is a wide driveway to allow plenty of parking adjacent to a lawned fore-garden which contributes to create an all round wonderful curb appeal. Just a fee strides away from Lavender Hall Park.

LIVING ACCOMODATION Once through the front door you are welcomed into an inviting hallway which gives access to all the rooms in the main property and therefore creates a central hub enabling a wonderful flow to the downstairs layout.

At the end of the hallway are double doors that lead into a most impressive open plan kitchen / dining / living space. This has been extended with a vaulted ceiling incorporating skylights and bifold doors that open out to the rear garden and create an abundance of natural light into the room. A high quality granite island creates a central point to the kitchen and incorporates a four ring Samsung induction hob and a sink with extendable mixer tap. The island worktop overhangs the units to make space for stools to tuck in below and utilise the worktop as a breakfast bar - ideal for guests or family to be close to the cooking area for everyday social interaction. The units are a stylish contrasting white and provide all the large cupboard space needed for a big family home like this. Integrated into the main wall unit is a double oven, microwave and contemporary coffee maker. The kitchen also provides space for a large table, a sofa area and even space for a desk, all finished with contemporary white tile flooring - it is just the perfect space for modern living.

Off the kitchen is a utility room with worktops to two walls, one incorporating a sink and drainer whilst allowing space for white goods, the Valliant boiler and providing access to the side entry which is useful if coming back with muddy boots from one of the many great local walks.

Although the kitchen has space for sofas, there is a separate lounge which is a good size and has bay windows with french doors that lead straight to the rear patio. This really brings the outdoors inside on a sunny day with the doors opened, whilst in the winter this becomes a really cosy space due to a feature log burner which really creates a beautiful ambience.

Also off the hallway is an office which again has a bay window creating a light and bright feel making it a really pleasant place to work from. There is plenty of space for desks and office furniture which is very important in todays world of flexible working! Finally downstairs in the main property is a large cloakroom, storage under the stairs and access into the integral double garage which has double up and over external doors - some of the garage space has been utilised for internal living but there is still space for a vehicle and plenty of storage.

INTERNAL ANNEX To the side of the property there has been a single story extension which creates a fantastic self contained annex, ideal for multi-generational living. This comprises of a living room with double doors to the rear garden and also contains a small kitchenette with sink and hob. Off the lounge is a double bedroom which has space for the bed and bedroom furniture with a front facing window. Finally to the annex is an en-suite shower room which has wet room style flooring, pedestal wash hand basin, W.C and wall mounted heated towel rail.

BEDROOMS AND BATHROOMS A dogleg staircase brings you to the first floor where a remarkably large landing greets you and creates a sense of space and calm - having a space like this is a really underrated yet important part of a large home.

There are 5 large bedrooms to the first floor, the master of which is particularly large with space for a King size bed, fitted wardrobes and has an en-suite shower room finished with modern tiling with floating sink and W.C.

Bedroom two is another big bedroom and would be the master suite in most properties. This also has space for a King size bed, fitted wardrobes and another en-suite shower room with W.C and wash hand basin. Bedroom 3, 4 and 5 are also all really good sizes - there is no box room here like you often get in 5/6 bedroom properties. All three remaining rooms will fit at least a double bed as well as additional bedroom furniture and have all been finished to a good standard.

The family bathroom is clean, modern and sleek. There are stylish tiles to the floor and walls, a large shower space with rainfall shower head and a beautiful rolltop stand-alone bath which is deep enough to get relaxed and comforable. There is a floating wash hand basin, wall mounted heated towel rail and W.C. with concealed flush.

GARDEN SPACE As well as the lawned foregarden, there is a private rear garden which due to the positioning of the cul-de-sac, is not overlooked and therefore has a feeling of space around it. This is largely laid to lawn with some lovely plants and flowers bordering the grass. There are two areas which are great for entertaining and relaxing in - one is the patio which stretches the width of the garden and is directly accessed from all rear facing rooms of the property, creating a real connection between the house and the garden. The other area is purpose built and positioned in the bottom of the garden which has been finished with stylish outdoor tiles and gets the sun right into the evening.

DOUBLE GARAGE The double garage can be accessed externally via two up and over doors and also has internal access from the hallway. There is power and lighting in here and some of the garage space has been utilised for internal living but there is still space for a vehicle and plenty of storage.
