Description

A substantial and beautifully presented home extending to over 2,800 square feet, wonderfully positioned on a private road overlooking a Nature Reserve. Arranged over three floors, the property offers spacious and comfortable living for the modern household which enables a greater degree of flexibility and versatility, both for meeting the needs of each member of the family and for working from home which, for most of us, is becoming a reality and more of a necessity. Built in 2012 by Taylor Wimpey, the original home has been significantly improved by the present owners with the addition of a dining conservatory, an upgraded kitchen, low voltage lights, and Cat 5 cabling to complement the modern heating and air-recovery systems. Outside there is a good sized private garden and driveway parking for up to four cars in addition to the double size garage.

Location

The property is positioned on the edge of Abbotswood, a popular and sought-after modern development on the outskirts of Romsey yet within two miles of the town centre. This pleasant community offers a local convenience store, safe play areas for children, delightful walks through the protected Nature Reserve, a nursery, and a regular bus service. The historic market town of Romsey feature the iconic Norman Abbey and a bustling centre with a Waitrose superstore complemented by an eclectic mix of familiar High Street stores intermingled with established local independent retailers, coffee shops, cafes, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes, bus and train stations connecting to Winchester, Salisbury and Southampton, and the Romsey Rapids Sports and Leisure Complex. Romsey also offers excellent schools for all age groups in both the public and private sectors.

Accommodation

The front door opens into a welcoming reception hall that has an attractive tiled floor extending into the kitchen and cloakroom and stairs to the first floor with storage cupboard under. There is a modern cloakroom with WC, a very useful utility room with integrated washing machine and quartz worktops, and a double aspect playroom/snug. The good size double-aspect sitting room has a feature wall-mounted electric fire and double doors opening into the dining conservatory with tiled floor, and double doors into the adjoining kitchen/breakfast room and rear garden. The kitchen is undoubtedly one of the property's main attractions as it features black high-gloss fronted units and quartz worktops with a central breakfasting island and a range of integrated appliances to include electric double oven, microwave, 5-ring gas hob with stainless steel extractor canopy above, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and drinks fridge. There is plinth lighting and a cupboard houses the central heating boiler.

The second bedroom also has two built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room, with the fifth bedroom and the family bathroom – with both bath and shower – completing the first floor. On the second floor you will find another shower room, bedroom four, and the fifth bedroom adjoining which is a potential sixth bedroom which, in combination, make an ideal suite for a teenager or could be used, as presently, as an office and indoor gym.

Outside you will find a driveway to the side of the house providing off-road parking for three to four cars leading to the attached double size garage with up-and-over door, two personal doors, loft storage space, power and light.
