A vast open plan living/dining room has open fire with marble surround. Rear access patio doors ensure the countryside is in prominent view at all times.
The second reception room is located to the front of the property, with ground to ceiling windows.
A fully tiled ground floor bathroom adds convenience with a three piece “traditional English” suite.
Step in to the garage where many of this home’s tricks are hidden away. A Geothermal Heat Pump takes heat from the ground and transfers that in to the property’s underfloor heating system, resulting in high efficiency and low running costs. Beside this is an EV (Electric Vehicle) Charging Station and a Beam Vacuum System which is piped throughout the house to make cleaning a breeze.
These efficient systems are coupled with the property’s solar system located on the rear roof pitch for timed immersion hot water, triple glazing to top floor windows, highly insulated floors and ceilings, and individual thermostatic controls for each room.
The net result is an efficient, environmentally friendly home with extremely low annual running costs.
At first floor level four double bedrooms await. The master with ensuite. Two of the remaining rooms benefit from built in wardrobes and a fourth bedroom is located at the front of the property. The bathroom at first floor level is sumptuous, with sleeper bath and “traditional English” suite.
On up the stunning oak staircase to two further double bedrooms, with access to floored roof void storage areas. The smaller of the two bedrooms is fully wired as a cinema room.
All rooms are wired with satellite cable and individual temperature controls, self-closing fire doors and oversized door frames resulting in additional safety and accessibility throughout the home.
Built in 2008 this home is still advanced way beyond its time when its high specification and eco benefits are considered.
An extensive plot bounded in timber fence awaits to the rear with unspoilt views of the countryside across the grass paddock. An absolute blank canvas for a new home owner to turn this amazing space in to the garden they’ve always dreamt of. At night, marvel at the property and its grounds with the led uplighting throughout the grounds.
Paul Gwynne, Director at Manor & Mill explained: “We are delighted the lovely owners of No 56 Castor Bay Road put their trust in Manor & Mill Ltd to promote this stunning property for sale in a way only we do.
“With significant early interest achieved through our Stage 1 marketing process, the high specification installed in the property and the eco benefits of living here, we are confident No 56 will achieve an excellent sale price very quickly”.
