The Marklands, Markland Hill Lane
Amidst a peaceful and friendly collection of handsome homes, a small cul-de-sac leads to 4, The Marklands: an immaculate five-bedroomed home.
A wide driveway, with parking for two cars, plus additional visitor parking, tapers towards the portico entrance of Number Four.
Recently built in 2017, this home retains its ‘freshly-unwrapped’ feel of newness; from the deep tones in the feature red brickwork in the gable to the berry-brown solid wood double garage doors and the tasteful shuttered windows.
Step inside to discover a home designed to reflect the very best of family living.
Welcome home. From the light and bright entrance hall, striking, white-grooved modern doors open out to the downstairs WC, lounge and dining-kitchen.
Love a living room that works to your needs? Slip through to the right and into a vast lounge area, a true blank canvas ready to be moulded to your family’s needs.
A broad bay window looking out over the neat garden at the front invites in a steady flow of light, reflecting off the white walls and neutral carpet.
Currently laid out to create a music area – with space for a piano – to the rear, there is still ample room to the front for a large sitting room. Scope too, to add a fireplace for those cosy winter evenings.
Such a versatile space, experiment with the layout to create the perfect living area.
Returning to the entrance hall, pass the handy WC and under-stairs store and follow your nose to the kitchen-diner, directly ahead.
Open-plan and so inviting, bi-fold doors open out onto the garden and patio area; perfect for hosting barbecues and enjoying time with the family.
A sociable and contemporary culinary space; never miss a quality moment with your loved ones.
The central breakfast bar with stool is handy for a quick snack before heading out on the school run, and is ideal for catching up on the events of the day as you prepare tea in the comprehensively stocked kitchen.
Equipped with an array of built-in features designed to make mealtimes a breeze, enjoy the benefit of a double oven, separate gas hob, dishwasher and built-in fridge and freezer. Over and under, cupboards and drawers provide storage for pots, pans and more.
Designed for the ultimate ease of use, there’s no such thing as ‘too many cooks spoil the broth’ in this kitchen, with ample room to move around and an abundance of surface space for preparation.
For both special occasions and everyday family dinners, gather around the dining table and enjoy views of the garden. There is even a quiet reading corner behind, great for early-risers who enjoy watching the first of the morning sunshine.
Sneak a peek to the left, where a utility room contains space for a washer and dryer. A double cupboard beneath the sink offers more storage space alongside a tall cleaning cupboard. Access is available from here out into the garden and to the garage.
Climb the stairs and stare in amazement as the first floor opens up before you! Even bigger than the spacious ground floor, this level extends over the garage to create space for five large bedrooms.
Turn to the right and to the end of the landing on your left is the stunning master suite.
Brimming in natural light, the master bedroom enjoys the morning sun; throw open the shutters and say good morning to a new day.
To the left, a substantial dressing area complete with built-in wardrobes and shelving ensures a clutter-free bedroom and calm sleeping space.
Cream carpets dashed with darker tones coat all the upstairs bedrooms, light, bright and practical too.
Peep through to the sumptuous en-suite bathroom, where the rainfall showerhead is ready to pummel the aches away and refresh and revive you for the day ahead.
Across the landing, bedroom three, currently a guest bedroom can serve as a twin or double bedroom, and also benefits from a private en-suite with large rainfall shower.
Front facing and light, this room could also be the perfect treat for your teenager.
Across from the top of the stairs, bedroom two is a voluminous double, overlooking the green lawn and collection of tall trees at the rear.
Currently used as a playroom, the sizeable dimensions of this room are clear to see; it can easily fit a king-size bed and a selection of furniture.
Bedroom four also overlooks the back garden and is currently used as a home office. Its quirky shape would make it an appealing child’s bedroom and, while it could serve as a double, its space can be best appreciated with a single bed.
The airing cupboard on the landing, housing the boiler, separates the fifth bedroom from bedroom four, currently employed as a peaceful nursery.
Quiet and peaceful, this double bedroom feels tucked away, slightly to the side of the rear garden and supremely private.
With a total of three bathrooms on this floor – two en-suites and a family bathroom – no frantic morning squabbling over shower timings!
Relax and refresh at your own pace in the large family bathroom at the end of the landing. Soak away the cares of the day in the deep bath, before plucking a freshly warmed towel off the heated rail. Plenty of storage space above the sink for all the brood’s lotions and potions.
Both en-suites feature rainfall shower heads, heated rails and built-in storage.
Step outside and enjoy the great outdoors in your very own garden at Number Four. A large and verdant lawn is backed by a green screen of tall trees, which provide privacy whilst allowing sunlight through.
Such a peaceful and secluded spot, not overlooked and yet surrounded by neighbouring lawns for peace of mind and security.
Invite your friends and family over for barbecues and summer soirees, soaking up the last of the sunshine. Enclosed and secure, an ideal garden for children to play in.
