DescriptionElectric gates punctuate the high, cut granite perimeter wall and open up to reveal this very handsome detached Edwardian home built c. 1909 with many delightful period features. The beautiful granite wall at ground floor level, is off set by the attractive pebble dashed render on the first floor. Dormer and sash windows, red brick window surround detail and attractive bargeboards to the gable all combine to create this instantly appealing family home.
Ingleside was totally refurbished and extended by its' current owners in 2008. The addition of a superbly appointed contemporary kitchen / family hub to the side of the house, the geometric design of which, skilfully fuses together the charming and graceful formal rooms with the new. The new open-plan kitchen area utilises to maximum effect spatial design with a double height glazed apex roof. Light abounds and reflects with special anti-glare AllSpec glass by Pilkingtons, fully maximising the perfect south west orientation. Fine chrome beams are a nod to a rustic design that are in keeping with this seemingly rustic setting. The overall feeling is of a relaxed, understated elegance with a distinctly French flavour.
Off the hallway lies the living and dining rooms. These rooms open up effortlessly to each other with matching fine, marble fireplaces. Both rooms are dual aspect and the living room opens to a wonderful, large bay window. Across the hall a study is positioned to the front of the house overlooking an original water feature.
A limestone floor flows from the hall to the kitchen / family hub creating space and flow. A practical and well-designed utility space is located off the kitchen. Complete with guest toilet it also incorporates a boot room with individual “locker” storage spaces for family members to keep coats, shoes and family parafenalia. In addition there is a properly functioning utility room complete with sink and linen cupboard.
Upstairs there are five bedrooms. The main bedroom is a large room providing a calm escape from the household hubbub with bay window enjoying wonderful mountain views. An ensuite bathroom and dressing area complement this area to perfection complete with travertine tiled floor. There are four further bedrooms, one ensuite and a family bathroom. In two of the double bedrooms a cleverly applied design touch makes use of the dormer space with two bespoke steel framed stairs to a mezzanine library in each room.
This is without doubt a superb family home. Every detail has been considered in its refurbishment which combines formal reception accommodation with very practical, contemporary family living spaces for practical and comfortable living. All of this on a wonderful site of approximately one acre it is a home without compromise.
Enjoying an exceptionally large site of approximately one acre. A rarety and joy to have and undoubtedly a favourable feature. The walled garden provides a large lawned area for ball-kicking soccer enthusiasts and plenty of space for children's play area, trampoline and swings. The patio nestles in a natural sheltered spot afforded by the L-shaped configuration of the house. With Liscannor tiles, it slopes gently with three easy steps to the lawn. The south facing patio area enjoys a feature broken wall, cleverly providing shelter and light in equal measure. There is a water feature with fountains the symmetry of which is mirrored in well positioned flower beds boasting neatly clipped and formed buxus hedging. Flower beds hug the house to the front with buxus and hydrangea hedging. A large double detached garage is discreetly tucked away to the side of the property (43 sqm/462 sqft approx.) and to the front a circular stone pond with fountain provides a welcoming reminder of this home's Edwardian roots.
