Entrance Hall
Step up onto the slate covered porch to enter via an oak panelled front door with obscure glazed windows to each side. Announce your arrival with the wrought iron knocker; wait patiently for the privacy panel to be opened to confirm your admission.

A solid wood floor extends onwards into the two reception rooms, and adjacent to the entrance of the kitchen diner family room.

Kitchen/diner 6.91m and 2.72mx 4.19m and 7.80m
Directly opposite the front door is the beating heart of this family home. As you approach this multi-use space, you are gently caressed by the radiant warmth of the Aga. Take a moment to sit and relax in front of the brick-built fireplace, whilst the kettle gently murmurs on the open top stove.

Consider which indulgent recipe to present to the awaiting range cooker, before serving in the spacious extended dining area. Set the table to enjoy views of the garden, or throw open the French doors to connect with patio area of the garden.

This impressive open plan kitchen/family room is fitted with a range of base & wall units and complimenting work surfaces, an inset Belfast style sink unit with mixer tap over, fitted four oven Aga, plumbing for dishwasher, French limestone tiled floor with 'pillowed' edge and double glazed windows to rear.

This stunning space connects directly to an impressive utility room and first floor shower room.

Utility Room
The size of many a standard kitchen, the recently refurbished utility room can be found off the kitchen diner. Contemporary work surfaces and crisp white tiles offer an alternative domestic space. This will prove invaluable when hosting larger soirees and garden parties.

Shower Room
The shower room and toilet offer both convenience and style. Perfect for visitors to use; or a functional alternative washroom to the first floor family bathroom.

Drawing Room 5.38m (17' 8') x 3.94m (12' 11')
For larger gatherings, or moments of greater contemplation, the rear drawing room is the perfect entertaining space. Track effortlessly from the kitchen, or move seamlessly into the garden through the double French doors. Linger to admire the stained glass windows flanking the feature stone fireplace.

It is undoubtedly a good sized reception room with UPVC double glazed French doors & matching side screens to rear, two stained leaded windows to side, superb Minster fireplace housing gas living flame fire, original solid oak tongue & groove flooring.

Sitting Room 4.67m (15' 4') x 3.94m (12' 11')
With an impressive bay window overlooking the drive, the sitting room to the front of the house is the perfect place to rest, recline, read or listen. Close the door more for a moment of peace and privacy, or throw it wide open and share an aperitif with a connoisseur.

The room benefits from a UPVC double glazed bay window to front with double radiator beneath, original solid oak tongue & groove flooring, picture rail and coving.

The bannister's clean carpentry lines, and mid-century style, give a clear indication of the warmth and detail to be expected from this home.

A generous landing matches the stature and proportions of this property. Ingress to four bedrooms and the family bathroom.

Master Bedroom 4.52m (14' 10') x 3.94m (12' 11')
With a front facing bay window, the master bedroom offers plenty of room for Queen size beds and King size dreams.

You will find a UPVC double glazed bay window to front with radiator beneath, solid oak floor with lacquered finish.

Bedroom 2 4.78m (15' 8') x 3.94m (12' 11')
The rear double bedroom offers more exceptional sleeping accommodation with another beautiful bay window overlooking the back garden. It clearly is a first-class second bedroom.

This offers a UPVC double glazed bay window to rear with double radiator beneath, stripped painted floorboards.

Bedroom 3 4.95m (16' 3') x 2.90m (9' 6')
The third bedroom is light and spacious enjoying front-facing views of the leafy street ahead. A perfect guest room - or who needs guests when you need an expansive dressing room?
This room provides two UPVC double glazed windows to front, radiator, solid oak floor with lacquered finish.

Bedroom 4 4.70m (15' 5') x 2.39m (7' 10')
Adjacent to the family bathroom, this bedroom provides numerous opportunities. Nursery or children's bedroom. Guest room or first-floor study. No need to make a decision now – maybe sleep on it.

Here you will find a UPVC double glazed window to rear, radiator, solid oak floor with lacquered finish.

Family Bathroom
Floor to ceiling marble tiling creates a spa-like sanctuary. An attractive white suite draws out the highlights of the natural coloured ceramics. Run a luxurious bath (Molton Brown Black Pepper to hand) – take a glass of wine – and lock the door. Don't worry about the time you spend – that's what the ground floor toilet and shower room are there for.

Bathers will enjoy this refitted modern suite comprising panelled bath with telephone style mixer shower attachment over, pedestal wash-hand basin, low level WC, heated towel rail, walls & floor tiled in honed marble tile, UPVC obscure glazed window to rear.

Integral Garage
The integral garage can be accessed externally from the glass panelled wooden doors, or from the utility room. It has of course, power and lighting. But what to do next? Store the soft-top from the elements; brim to the rafters with antiquities and collectibles; or add another bay and convert into even more front-facing living space?

Front of Property
You cannot fail to be impressed by the imposing self-confidence of the Kenmarlie property. Substantial stone topped pillars host a pair of motorised wrought iron gates. Look up the stone covered drive to be welcomed by leaded windows, beautiful bays and the warm autumnal hues of the tiles and brickwork.
The private drive is laid with chippings, providing ample off-road parking, which is entered via electrically operated gates.

Rear Garden
Whilst seemingly impossible, does the house look even more impressive from the back garden? The white rendered walls accentuate both the leaded windows and the towering redbrick chimney stacks.

You can also sit and take in the garden from the Nero riven slate patio. It is an enclosed garden, being predominantly laid to lawn, with two small structures – one perfect for storing accessories – one perfect for accommodating you, and a book, and perhaps a G&T (or two).
