Turn off the main road passing through the village and cross the bridge over Peasey Beck to enter a picture book world, brimming with wildlife, birdsong and the relaxing sound of gently flowing water.
Park by the stone house or in the extended double garage, with ample storage in the loft, accessed by ladders. Outside, nature's harmony of river song and bird calls heralds your arrival home.
Tucked away from the world, yet only a five-minute drive from the motorway, peace and privacy await.
Step inside, through a set of glazed doors, onto the oak floor of a uniquely styled entrance hall, where the staircase directly ahead provides the home with a pleasing symmetry. Airy and bright with a high ceiling, sense the warm welcome: Nest thermostatic heating controls allow you to set the temperature to your preference. Tuck your shoes and coat in the storage under the stairs before heading through the door to the right.
This reveals a luxurious lounge, with plush carpet underfoot. Stain-resistant, this carpet balances luxury with lifestyle for pet owners or those with younger children.
Light streams in from a window within the feature tactile slate wall ahead, and large patio doors to the right, which also open out onto the stone paved patio. Snuggle up in front of the fireplace, where the Gazco remote controlled real-flame gas fire provides instant warmth and ambience. Soak up the rays from the late afternoon sun on the patio beyond, or simply enjoy the warmth and views of the river from the comfort of the sofa.
Feast with family and friends in the dining room next door. Perfect for celebrations and occasions, there is a bar area to one side, with stylish contemporary pendant lighting from two sources above. Doors throughout the home are newly French polished, with freshly painted, re-plastered walls on the lower level. Sneak a peek at the garage through the double oak doors in the dining room.
Work from home in the study next door. Spacious enough to serve a dual purpose as an office and a gym, where better to get business done? Millbrook Lodge is fitted with Hyperfast B4RN internet.
Follow the flow round to the newly fitted kitchen, where a central island furnished with bar stools is the ideal place to enjoy a spot of breakfast. Bifold doors open out to the patio where there is a picnic table for alfresco dining when the sun is shining.
Underfloor heating warms the slate-effect floor with additional ambience created by the Rangemaster cooker. Ample storage for all your culinary essentials is provided within the surrounding drawers and cabinets. Among the integrated appliances and features of this kitchen is a useful Grohe instant boiling tap - shave minutes off making that all important morning cuppa.
Opening up from the kitchen is the utility, with further fitted storage (currently used as a stylish bar) and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer. There is also access from here to a downstairs WC.
Returning to the entrance hallway, take the carpeted stairs up to the first floor.
Refresh, revive and relax in the indulgent bathroom, furnished with large, two-person jacuzzi bath, stone wash basin inset in an oak vanity unit and LED sensor mirror. Sink into the tub and watch your favourite shows on the built-in television. Pure luxury.
Sneak a peek at the light-filled second bedroom, with windows framing views out over the beck. Elegant wallpaper to one wall imbues the room with a boutique hotel feel.
Next door, a third double bedroom contains an ensuite with shower, wash basin and WC. Note the motif of iridescent tiling behind the vanity unit wash basin in the bathrooms; shimmering an earth ruby colour in the family bathroom and deep blue in the guest ensuite.
Returning along the landing, step into the master bedroom, furnished with a king-sized bed and splendid views over the beck beyond the window. No arguing over who has to get out of bed to turn the light out, remote lighting takes this chore out of your hands. Built-in wardrobes from Hammonds line a wall in the bedroom, with additional storage available in the dressing room with walls of fitted storage, dressed elegantly in light tones of Farrow & Ball.
A double walk-in shower in the ensuite offers plenty of space for the morning spritz, also fitted with WC and wash basin set to a shimmering blue tiled backdrop.
Returning to the landing, take either of the dual stairs up to the second floor, light streaming in from the window part way.
Currently utilised as a sitting room for star gazing through the large Velux, this room could make the ultimate teenager's bedroom, sequestered from the rest of the home. Windows surround to several sides, whilst oak-style flooring extends underfoot beneath the high, vaulted ceiling.
Perfect for use as a cinema too, this vast room could be divided to create two bedrooms, so versatile is this home. Surrounding storage in the eaves allows so much space in which to hide away the Christmas decorations, suitcases and more.
Returning downstairs, slip out through any of the reception rooms, all of which provide direct access to the low-maintenance garden.
Birdsong and the tinkling waters of the brook greet you instantly, stepping out onto the Indian stone paving of the patio. Philips Hue remote lighting creates the perfect atmosphere for evenings of entertainment with family and friends, when relaxing around the firepit.
In the daytime, soak up the sunshine on the terrace, dipping in and out of the beck to cool off; there is gated access directly down; ideal for keeping younger children safe and thrilling older children who can build dams and splash about to their hearts' content. Securely gated to the sides, the garden is safe for children and pets.
Pause playtime and break off for lunch at the streamlined picnic table.
