Set along the prestigious ‘The Drive’ is this exceptional gated residence, set back on the plot it allows for a large driveway providing plenty of off street parking. Being recently constructed the entire property was built to the personal specification of the current owners, who built the home with family life in mind, meaning the layout is both beautiful and functional.
Upon entering the property you are greeted by a large entrance hall with a grand staircase and galleried landing areas that span all three floors of this opulent home. The open plan nature of this area leads to a sense of openness and an abundance of natural light. It really has a touch of grandeur.
The large kitchen/diner is equipped with a separate utility area and benefits from the addition of a conservatory. The whole area makes for the perfect entertaining space and combines both opulence and functionality. There is also a separate study, perfect for those who work from home or for the children to do their homework away from the distractions of the main home. The separate dining room and lounge come into their own when entertaining and are also the perfect areas to relax and unwind or spend time with the family in.
Spread across the other two floors are eight bedrooms, all of which are a great size and six of which benefit from their own en-suite bathroom. Because of the way the property is laid out six of the bedrooms have dual aspect windows, with two bedrooms also having balconies. The home offers great versatility, the current owners use two of the bedrooms as a cinema room and a games room.
The location is ideal, only half a mile from South Woodford underground station and 0.4 from Snaresbrook Station and with access to the A406 close by it really is easy to get around. Located between two high streets, South Woodford and Wanstead you can choose which one to use. Also Epping Forest is nearby where you can enjoy many walks around the forest.
What the Owner says:
The house was built with the intention of fulfilling our current needs and special attention was given to catering for future needs. There are so many aspects of this home that impressed us, there is an under floor heating system throughout, even in our conservatory and loft. The soundless central vacuum cleaning system, which is located on all floors, is so convenient to keep the home tidy, we kept one outlet for cleaning our cars. The built-in water sprinklers for garden irrigation is quite unique to minimise the daily watering effort and keep the garden green and beautiful. The whole home is fitted with network cables for any use of it equipment effectively and there is a sound system installed in the ceiling throughout. We also installed the finger recognition to keep keyless access to the home with an intercom system also installed in every room for internal communication.
My favourite room of the house has to be the conservatory. It’s an amazing room with an abundance of natural light, we have many fond memories of family gatherings here. We once had a large family event where we set up a marquee in the garden and had a five a side football tournament. In the summer months the conservatory and patio area really adds to the already impressive living and entertaining spaces.
