The property

65 Sandpit Lane is a tasteful contemporary family home enjoying well-arranged and flexible spaces, a large garden and a double garage in an ever-popular residential location.

A practical central reception hall leads the way into the double fronted property and reveals the substantial open-plan living space, with its elegant turned stairway leading to the first floor. The sociable family area has double French doors onto the rear terrace, as does the light-filled dining space, with its attractive skylit ceiling. The sleek kitchen comprises a sizeable marble-topped central island with integrated sink and gas hob and a range of glossy wall and base units, modern appliances and fixtures. The generous utility adjacent benefits from its own separate hob, as well as various corresponding built-in units and worktops, whilst a handy cloakroom sits alongside. A separate sitting room to the front aspect has a wide bay window and provides an additional comfortable space in which to relax and entertain, whilst the considerable study with marble feature fireplace offers the ideal place for the home worker.

On the first floor are five luxurious and well-proportioned bedrooms. The spacious principal bedroom suite enjoys the use of an adjacent dressing room with a range of bespoke storage, as well as a well-appointed en suite bathroom with glass walk-in shower, double sinks and a freestanding bathtub.

Two of the further four bedrooms benefit from built-in storage solutions and their own contemporary en suite shower rooms, whilst the remaining two are well served by the family bathroom. The sizeable loft space above is easily accessible and offers convenient additional storage.
