A hidden gem awaits discovery in ever-popular Heaton…
Tucked away off Markland Hill is peaceful and quiet Lingmell Close, an oasis of calm, embellished by a large central green.
With its leafy backdrop of mature trees, the green provides privacy and is a delightful sight to be greeted by on your arrival home.
Pull up onto the large, neatly-paved driveway of Number Twelve, Lingmell Close, where there is plenty parking for friends and family too. There is also a large garage.
Deceptively spacious, a parade of colourful, feathery foliage lines the driveway, screening the whole house from view initially. Approaching the contemporary, anthracite grey front door, sneak a peek at the lush front lawn and neat private hedging.
The big surprise is beyond the front door…
Step through into a light, bright and contemporary entrance hall that belies Lingmell’s traditional 60s façade.
Sleek pine handrails turn up the open, steel spindled staircase to the right, drawing attention to the double height ceiling.
Ahead, a series of modern doors gleam invitingly beneath the spotlighting. Sneak a peek directly through to the rear garden beyond…
Stash your coat, shoes and bag in the large cloak cupboard (plenty of space for all the family’s gear in here), freshen up in the downstairs WC and take the door to the left through to the lavishly-sized lounge-dining room.
Soft, cream carpet extends underfoot as light flows through the full length of the room. Full height windows frame the peaceful outlook of the garden to the front, whilst to the rear, double doors open out onto the patio – perfect for summertime dining in the open air.
Contemporary spotlighting adds to the illumination, picking out the reflections in the chrome switches and sockets, which are set throughout the lounge area to the front and dining room to the rear.
Snuggle up on the sofa with a book; dine whilst soaking up views of the colourful garden to the rear in this free-flowing inviting space.
Leading off the main entrance hall and overlooking the planting and lawn at the front is the study. Ideal for those looking to make the transition to working from home, this second reception room, gives flexibility should you require a snug lounge, office, play room or media room for teens. It could even be a downstairs bedroom.
Located directly across from the entrance hall is the heart of the home; the delectable kitchen-diner.
Take a seat and relax, in the snug area to the left, backed in a berry red feature wall.
Sliding patio doors open up to the raised decking, where the prospect of an alfresco aperitif in the south-facing garden is a tantalising delight.
Gleaming tiles emit warmth from the partial underfloor heating and extend beneath the dining area and throughout the kitchen. A contemporary white, vertical radiator adds further cheer.
Cook up a feast on the range of Neff appliances including double oven and induction hob.
Glossy white units house an array of storage in addition to built-in fridge, freezer and dishwasher.
Returning to the entrance hall, sneak a peek through to the utility room, furnished with an array of crisp white cupboards and solid worktops. Note the clever use of space, with the sink set above an angled cupboard – not an inch of storage is lost. Plumbing in here for a washer and dryer.
Take the cream, carpeted staircase up to the landing, where three sumptuous bedrooms await.
Sneak a peek at the master bedroom, located privately to the rear of the house. Not overlooked and so peaceful, a wall of smoked-glass built-in wardrobes creates a clutter-free environment.
Cream carpets and latte-toned walls create a soothing ambience for sleep.
Freshen up in the chic ensuite, fitted with vessel wash basin set upon a floating light-wood vanity unit with storage. This bathroom also features WC, heated towel rail and drench shower with side attachment.
Tiled underfoot in cappuccino porcelain and with creamy beige tiling behind the sink and shower, start your day in a serene spa-like way every morning…
To the right of the stairs, discover the family bathroom, tiled in black and white and featuring a centrally filling bath tub, wall mounted sink and WC. Light shines in from the large skylight above.
Soaking up the best of the garden views, bedrooms two and three are also set to the rear of the house.
Large, welcoming doubles uniquely styled in a contemporary fashion, bedroom three is also fitted with built-in wardrobes for bonus storage.
The real jewel in the crown of Number Twelve, Lingmell Close is its Edenic garden.
In this south facing paradise, soak up the sunshine all summer long. Stretch out with an icy drink and a favourite book on the large decking. It really is the perfect place to entertain, relax and admire the delights of the landscaped garden, featuring a range of colour and textures, lawn and gravel pathways.
An all-season garden, watch as the colours change subtly throughout the seasons; the beautiful bark of the multi stem silver birch creates the ultimate image of winter, whilst summer brings the colour and shape of palms, tree fern and ginkgo.
Stash the garden tools and furniture in the two brick outbuildings; handy for storage.
Enjoy your paradise in perfect privacy, courtesy of the screening of mature trees at the back.
