With impeccable kerb appeal, a family-friendly layout and impressive wraparound gardens; welcome to your forever home.
Built on the former garden of neighbouring Heversham House, its name derives from the old malt kiln once sited on the plot. From the main road, turn into an electronically-gated, private driveway.
Transformed, over 20 years ago, from a bungalow to a contemporary and quirky abode set over three levels, take the steps up to enter on the middle floor, emerging into a light and roomy vestibule.
Overlooking the back garden, to the right, a reading room containing comfy chairs is the perfect spot for a spot of mindful relaxation.
Inside, the light and airy living room is perfectly peaceful, coated in a cream coloured carpet and with a living flame fire within the hearth.
Located close by, and encompassing the entire width of the house, is the master suite.
Sneak a peek beyond the staircase, where a striking orangery, with half height walls, glazed up to its solid roof, looks out onto the glorious garden and summer house.
With still more to see, take the staircase down to the lower floor, to discover the heart of the home.
Located to the centre of the lower floor, dining becomes the focal point of family life. Flow freely between the cosy family room, with its ash beams overhead and whitewashed brick fireplace, and the contemporary kitchen. Contained within the fireplace is an electric log burner-effect stove. French doors open out from the lounge to the garden at the front.
Step through to the modern, sleek kitchen. A true chef’s kitchen, glossy black units are illuminated by plinth lighting and contain an array of appliances including a Quooker instant-boiling tap, induction hob, wine fridge and an entire wall of ovens.
Two double fan ovens sit to the side of a steam oven and microwave, whilst an enormous black glass-fronted American-style fridge freezer is sunken into one wall, creating a TARDIS effect upon opening its door!
From the kitchen, a side porch provides access out to the side, alongside access to the utility room.
Access is also available from here into the integrated double garage, and up a set of stairs to the large converted space above. Heated by a separate boiler and formerly a playroom and a gym, this space could also make a great additional bedroom. Scope too, for conversion of the entire garage to create a self-contained annexe for a dependent relative, subject to permissions.
With guest accommodation on the lower ground floor and your accommodation on the middle floor, it’s time to explore the children’s sleeping quarters in the eaves of The Malt House.
Outside, explore the wraparound gardens that maintain the privacy of The Malt House.
