Surrounded by approximately 5.65 acres of gardens and grounds, The Pines is an imposing, detached house of quality with accommodation extending to over 11,700 square feet (excluding garaging). The present owners have carried out an extensive programme of extension and refurbishment which has resulted in an expansive, yet family orientated home which has been luxuriously styled. Features include data cabling, Cat wiring and some underfloor heating, whilst large double glazed windows, French and bi-folding doors along with a large light well in the garden room allow for an abundance of natural light penetration and for a fine outlook across the gardens and paddock. There are wooden floors in the hall, gym and annexe living space, as well as honey coloured parquet flooring in the drawing room. Reception rooms are gracious with the drawing room featuring De Gournay wall paper and enjoying a dual aspect, French doors to the garden, a coffered ceiling and a wood burning stove, whilst the study/library has been fitted with a range of polished oak cabinets. Elsewhere there is a cosy family sitting room which is preceded by a fabulous bar area with an antique mirrored ceiling and a fully fitted bar. The primary living space has been arranged to form a bright and airy dining/kitchen/breakfast/living room, top lit by a large atrium. The kitchen area has been comprehensively furnished with a range of wall and floor units around a large central island with pyrolav enamelled glazed lava stone, integrated appliances and a gas fired Aga with bolt-on and there is also a pantry. Beyond is the family room from where a door leads to the leisure suite where there is a large swimming pool with surrounding terrace and bi-folding doors to the garden, changing room with shower and a sauna, gym with oak floor and an excellent cinema.
