Set at the end of a short gravelled lane, No. 23 Silsoe Road has a rather special position overlooking farmland and countryside beyond on two sides.
Built circa 1990 in a traditional Victorian style, the house is arranged over 2 floors and has the added bonus of a fabulous indoor heated swimming pool, which is attached to the house.
With very versatile living space on the ground floor there is a well-designed kitchen breakfast room with Aga with companion cooker, side by side Miele larder fridge and freezer, and integrated dishwasher. Adjacent is a useful utility room, which has been fitted with units complementary to those in the kitchen. With access to the rear garden and side gates, this is a practical place to bring in shopping and drop off dirty boots and wet coats.
The large entrance hall is suitably welcoming with practical yet elegant tiled flooring, a double height ceiling and features a minstrel's galleried landing.
The flooring is a rich burnished oak which extends through to the sitting room, family room and dining room, and nicely links all 3 rooms. The sitting room, with its beautifully ornate Jacobean style ceiling, faces south west and features a large dual sided wood burner with the family room, ideal for those winter evenings and thus warming both rooms. There is also a large conservatory overlooking the courtyard to the front, and from here, the views certainly come into their own.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts a good sized designated dressing area with lots of cupboards and an en suite shower room. The guest bedroom, again, is a good size and also has an en suite shower room. The third bedroom is a large double room and shares the family bathroom with the remaining two bedrooms. The smallest bedroom is set up as a home office and has a good range of fitted study furniture. All rooms have lovely views over the countryside with the master bedroom being able to see all the way to the tree-lined horizon.
The pool room is well designed to reflect the attractive architecture of the house and with French doors opening onto the large decked area, this makes for the perfect space for entertaining. The pool room has been designed to incorporate a 10 meter pool and has a consistent depth of 2 metres.
There is a double garage separate from the house with a large attic space, which may lend itself to conversion with the appropriate consents.
The gardens are mainly to the rear of the house and feature a large decked area, which leads onto a raised lawn area, more than big enough to cater for a game of football and leaving space for parents to relax!
There is also a small courtyard style garden leading off the conservatory, which is sheltered behind laurels; a super place to watch the setting sun.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
