Stunning detached five bedroom family home situated in a peaceful cul-de-sac on the Southborough/St Johns borders. The property has seen a complete renovation in recent years as well as extensions at both ground and first floor levels. Viewings are recommended to see the quality of finish in this beautiful family home. The tree lined cul-de-sac of Norstead Gardens is home to just a small number of properties and is within walking distance of the mainline train station where a frequent service takes you to London City within the hour. The property also lies just a short walk away from some highly regarded schools to include both boys' and girls' grammar.
Set back from the road behind a mature front garden and bond resin driveway the property is entered via a covered front door- an ideal spot for kicking off muddy wellies! Once inside a door to your left opens into a second reception room or sixth bedroom. On your right is the open-plan living/dining space.
Once inside the open-plan living area the attention to detail and quality of workmanship immediately becomes apparent. The cosy living area is an ideal spot for chilling in winter months with the log burning stove adding charm and warmth to this already pleasant space. Following the 'L-Shape' configuration you find the dining area, open from the kitchen and almost separate from the living areas. A sun room also forms part of this fantastic open-plan living with a sky light and two sets of triple sliding doors flooding the space with natural light whilst allowing a smooth flow into the landscaped garden during summer months.
The kitchen adds to the wow-factor this property has in its entirety. Its handless design finished in crisp gloss white gives a modern, contemporary feel. AEG appliances include a single oven, combination oven/microwave, dishwasher and induction 5-ring hob.
Completing the ground floor is one of the biggest utility rooms we've seen along with a separate downstairs cloakroom. The utility room has white faced units below/above counter top along with two apertures for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Climbing the stairs you reach the first floor where all bedrooms have been carpeted in a contemporary light grey in recent years.
The master bedroom is an impressive size and offers an en-suite as well ample amounts of space for furniture. In addition there is useful storage accessible within the eaves. The en-suite has been finished with gloss grey tiles and includes a walk-in shower, WC, wash basin and tall chrome heated towel rail. A frosted window brings in natural light and assists with day to day ventilation along with the fitted extractor fan.
The further three bedrooms all benefit from lots of natural light and include three doubles with bedroom four being a single, currently used as a walk-in dressing room.
The high-spec family bathroom completes the first floor and has been finished with light grey gloss tiles. Included is a good sized bath, double width walk in shower, pedestal WC and wash basin. A frosted window brings in natural light.
Outside you find the immaculate landscaped garden, mainly laid to lawn and with mature raised beds to the rear adding color and sophistication. A pergola creates an ideal entertaining space (perfect for summer barbecues) whilst a second patio area also makes an nice spot for outdoor dining/entertaining.
Access to the triple garage is available from the garden where there is space for three cars. Previous plans included conversion of the garage to further enhance living space or create an annex with hot/cold supplies along with drainage and electricity already in place. It should be noted that any conversion could be subject to usual consents. Two remote controlled sectional garage doors open onto the bond resin driveway whilst an internal door provides access into the house. The driveway comfortably parks three cars off road whilst Norstead Gardens itself offers additional parking on-street, restriction free.
