33 Shaplands is a fabulous family home with the current owners happily living there for the last 15 years; with a wonderful feeling of natural light and a generous internal layout perfect for families of all ages, coupled with a fully enclosed southerly facing garden.
The house occupies a wide plot, with pedestrian access to the front door and off-street parking for at least two vehicles in-front of the integrated double garage.
Internally, the ground floor provides a flexible layout with a useful study, separate cloak room and a stylish well-proportioned sitting room, opening into the kitchen & dining room via double doors. The sitting room is a lovely space, with a dual aspect and recessed open fire. The front elevation has a desirable open aspect, overlooking a mature copse on the opposite side of the road.
The kitchen is a lovely size, flooded with light and with plenty of wall and floor mounted storage and a generous expanse of black "Star Galaxy" granite worktops incorporating a deep breakfast bar and food preparation area. The four-ring gas hob is coupled with a recessed extractor hood and makes a sociable space to cook whilst entertaining or spending time with family. A 1 ½ bowl sink overlooks the garden, and the kitchen has access to a deep under stair storage cupboard, as well as into the utility room. There is an integrated double height fridge & freezer, integrated dishwasher and LED lighting in the kickboards. Sliding glazed doors from the dining area bring the outside in, with access out to the garden.
The utility room provides further storage along with space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer, a further sink & drainer unit and access out to the garden and into the integrated garage.
Upstairs are four double bedrooms, with the generous master enjoying a superb en-suite shower room. Bedroom two also has the benefit of an en-suite shower room; with the remaining two bedrooms sharing a well-appointed fully tiled family bathroom; complete with a panelled bath, enclosed oversize shower cubicle, fitted sink and low level w.C. Each bath / shower room has a wall mounted heated towel ladder, and opaque double-glazed casement windows.
From the deep landing is access to a boarded loft via a loft hatch, as well as access to two storage cupboards, one housing the hot water tank, and perfect for linen shelves and further storage.
The rear garden is a particular feature of the property; southerly facing with a paved terrace and a level lawn – perfect to catch much of the day's sun. The mature borders fully enclose the garden, complete with children's play area, with gated access to one side (the other side is fenced but could be opened) providing safety for children and pets.
To the front, a paved drive provides off-street parking for several cars, with a path leading to the front door and the border flanked by mature trees and clipped laurel hedges.
The garage is integrated to the main house, with a concrete floor, power and light as well as casement windows providing natural light. A perfect space for a workshop and additional storage if needed.
