Lantern House was built in 2002 by the well known and highly regarded builders, Chevalier Homes and finished to very exacting standards having recently been redecorated throughout internally and externally, the house is presented in an ‘as new’ condition.
Appearing as a two storey house to the front, yet with a three storey rear, the house is deceptively spacious and offers very versatile family accommodation. Off the spacious entrance hall, the drawing room and dining room have very bright westerly aspects with doors leading out onto the rear sun terrace. The fully fitted study has views over the front gardens and driveway and there is a door leading to the integral double garage which has an electric up and over door.
On the first floor, again a very spacious galleried landing gives access to all bedrooms. The master bedroom has great views over the rear gardens and a fully racked out dressing area leading to a luxury en-suite bathroom. The guest bedroom also has views overlooking the rear and an en-suite bathroom with the three remaining bedrooms all being of a good spacious size sharing the family bathroom. To the rear of the house is the lower ground floor which is laid out to allow for all family living requirements.
The kitchen has an extensive range of granite work surfaces with a vast array of storage space. Of particular note is the built in dumb waiter allowing for food to be delivered direct to the dining room avoiding the need for using the stairs. To the other end of the kitchen/breakfast room is the open plan seating area which has ample space for a large breakfast table and/or sofas allowing for day to day living with French doors leading out onto the covered rear terrace and enjoying superb views over the well maintained gardens.
There is a well equipped separate utility room to the rear of the house and a further cloakroom on this floor. From the hallway, is the home entertaining room with wood laminate flooring which could be used as a bedroom if required. Approached over a gravel driveway with electric gates on brick piers there is ample parking for a number of vehicles and a very well tended front lawn with specimen trees and stocked borders.
To the rear, the house has superb well manicured lawns and well stocked and managed borders, the whole being enclosed with panel fencing and enjoying a wooded outlook to the west with no overlooking houses to the rear.
