If you’re looking for a four-bed period family home set in a prestigious location, then this is the house for you.
Standing proudly amidst a row of prestigious Edwardian semi detached homes on the quiet, tree lined Starling Road, you will find the delightful Moorlands.
Surrounded by open fields and woodland both front and rear, this outstanding period property has undergone a full modernisation whilst tastefully preserving many original features.
Step inside the porch where the luxurious tone of this modernised home is set off by the soft grey painted panelling and period floor tiling. Hang up your coats & stash your muddy boots before you emerge into the warm and welcoming hallway.
Push open the door to the left to find a beautifully styled formal reception room. Brimming with light from the large bay window and high ceilings, this room is filled with period features including freeze and cornice. Cosy up on a cold winters evening by the wood burner stove predominantly placed against a dark blue/ grey wall finish. Either side of the chimney breast are newly crafted built-in bookshelves with feature lighting to display your favourite home accessories.
Move on through to your fresh, contemporary high spec kitchen. Newly remodelled, this light and airy space has been fashioned to create a real entertainer’s ‘showroom’ style kitchen where you can throw open the large bi-folding doors and take the party outside to your al fresco dining area.
The kitchen itself is encased in a combination of white gloss and grey wood-grained cabinetry, cleverly arranged in a linear form to really highlight the central four-seater island unit.
Sat within this large luxury Quartz breakfast bar is a 5-ring induction hob ingeniously finished with pop up power sockets and built-in knife/chopping board holder which doubles as an ice bucket & drainer. Your guests can sit by the raised breakfast bar and watch you cook up a storm whilst helping themselves to a chilled wine! Above head, light glows above the canopy which houses the hidden extractor. Suspended beneath this, three pendant lamps further highlight the island.
To one side, a moulded quartz sink sits as the central focal point with a matching splashback ‘Kettle’ tap, integrated double fan assisted oven, fridge, freezer and dishwasher emphasising the seamless feel.
To the opposite side of the kitchen is a dining area sympathetically arranged looking out over the garden with newly crafted wall panelling to create a cosy nook, perfect for family meals. Beneath foot, a newly laid luxury vinyl herringbone floor adds a warming contrast.
Next door, a handy Utility room comes complete with built-in wall and base cupboards, integrated washer, dryer sink, drainer and best of all, a wine cooler.
Head back to the hallway and check out the modern WC neatly tucked beneath the stairs with contemporary black sanitary ware fixings. Ascend the newly laid carpet runner on the timber painted staircase as it winds up to the first floor. A stained glass window, newly built panelling and feature Edwardian style spindles, give a node to the properties past.
At one end of the landing sits the master bedroom, tastefully finished with soft grey and white tones. Light and bright courtesy of the tall ceilings and large window looking out over the expansive rear garden, this sumptuous room provides the perfect space to rest you head.
Next door, to the open front aspect lies another beautiful double bedroom of similar proportions. Recently redecorated in neutral greige tones this airy bedroom features a period fire surround painted in white to blend perfectly with the surroundings.
Two further bedrooms are situated on this floor; to the rear a third double bedroom, finished in grey; and to the front a single bedroom; currently utilised as a nursery complete with soft pink wall finish.
Before heading back downstairs, step into the sleek modern three-piece bathroom. To one side sits a recessed mirror with back to wall w.c and wall hung wash hand basin complete with walnut gloss storage drawer. A contemporary shower and glazed screen hover above the built in bath. A modern heated towel rail contrasts against the lustrous white/ grey tiling.
Step outdoors to discover the huge rear garden. Beyond the patio, a large expansive lawn stretches out onto open fields and woodland to the rear. Surrounded by mature plant beds, built in vegetable planters and timber fencing panels, this private enclosed garden provides a great outdoor space for all the family.
Sat within the rear, separate from the rest of the house is the converted garage, now home to a beauty salon, perfect for those who like to work from home.
To the front, a driveway sat between two perfectly pruned hedge rows offers off road parking for three cars. Either side, mature plant beds provide a welcoming first impression.
