With plenty of parking available, you can easily park three cars at the bottom gate and another two on the Sunny Bank Road side of Winster. There is also a single garage with ample space for all your tools and gardening essentials.

Make your way in through the solid oak front door with its glass panels and discover a home reconfigured, renovated and reimagined by the current owners.

Purchased in 2014, the upstairs to Winster existed as owners' accommodation, with the downstairs separated into three individual self-catering units. With incredible vision, Winster has been opened up and extended into a fantastic family home.

Step indoors, into a handy entrance hallway, before continuing through on the right to arrive at the first double bedroom. Carpeted in grey underfoot, and with elevated views out over the rear garden, enjoy a morning cuppa on the balcony, accessed via a glazed door.

Furnished with fitted wardrobes and an ensuite, refresh and revive beneath the shower before beginning the day. Fully tiled, with quirky hexagonal window, this room is also furnished with heated towel radiator, wash basin and WC.

Returning to the entrance hallway, turning left from the front door, discover a modern utility room, furnished in grey wood grain cabinetry, providing plenty of storage for cleaning essentials alongside coats and shoes. Beneath the countertops there is plumbing for a washer and dryer.

A home with such easy, practical flow, emerge from the utility room and into the new open-plan kitchen-diner. Following the same, minimal, modern grey-woodgrain motif as the utility room, this chic and contemporary space is so stylish. Fitted nine years ago by a local joiner, this high-quality kitchen is furnished with built-in double oven, dishwasher, induction hob with Neff extractor hood, fridge, freezer and pull-out larder unit.

A built-in glass cabinet provides views through to the entrance hallway. Woodgrain effect worktops provide plenty of preparation space, with ample storage in the cabinets to the lower and upper walls. Warmth emanates from the underfloor heating that flows throughout the open-plan kitchen, dining and living rooms.

Pause at the breakfast bar and share a story (or glass of champagne) with the chef; sociability is at the heart of this home, which opens up to a dining-living room. Carpet replaces tiling in this cosy and light area of the entertaining space where there is also access out to the balcony; ideal for pre-dinner aperitifs in the sunshine.

Windows retain a constant connection with the garden and outdoors, best enjoyed from the cushioned window seat. Equally inviting is the inset log burner, within a handsome stone fireplace. Flooded with light, this sunny south facing room is cheerful and bright throughout the year.

Once a balcony, now a glorious sun lounge, step through into a versatile entertaining space, extended and roofed by the current owners; wide windows spanning one wall make the most of the glorious garden views, whatever the weather. Fitted with an aerial point for a television, this could be a perfect family room, music room or reading room.

Follow the flow through to a second double bedroom, brimming with storage and with views out to the front garden.

Access the Jack 'n' Jill bathroom from here; a spacious room, warmed by underfloor heating, elegantly tiled to the walls and underfoot, and furnished with a corner bath, separate shower, heated towel radiator and vanity unit with countertop wash basin alongside a WC.

Exiting the Jack 'n' Jill bathroom, find yourself on the grey carpeted floor of the inner hallway, where a tall storage cupboard containing the boiler is handy for your vacuum and other cleaning essentials. A built-in display cabinet (perfect for books or treasured items) features in the porch to the right, a bright area naturally lit with two skylights overhead, which leads to another entrance with access to the side and rear of the property.

Take the new staircase, updated with a modern glass and wood design, down to the lower level, totally transformed and opened up by the current owners.

Turning left to the end of the lower hallway, arrive at a spacious bedroom, carpeted in grey and decorated in harmonising tones of buff and white. Fitted wardrobes are sleek and stylish, providing plenty of storage. Sliding doors open to provide access to a private patio; perfect for morning coffee whilst watching the birds at the feeders.

Wake up and shower in the private ensuite, fully tiled and also fitted with vanity unit wash basin and WC.

Returning along the hallway, opposite the foot of the stairs, arrive at another bedroom, currently furnished with a single bed and freestanding furniture, with LED spotlighting shining down from overhead and with underfloor heating.

Make your way along to discover a large family room, with wall mounted electric fire with feature LED lights, beneath a television, recessed within the wall above. Perfect as a recreation space, open the bifolds and step out into the sunshine; there is ample space and electrics for a hot tub on the decking outside. Relax and recline on the decking, overlooking the peaceful pond and its water feature.

Alternatively, use this space as a dressing room or lounge to accompany the master suite beyond.

Preceded by the spacious and super contemporary ensuite, enjoy a restorative soak in the freestanding tub set on a plinth with LED mood lighting. Accompanied by a large shower, wall mounted vanity unit wash basin, recessed LED lit mirror and WC, this spacious bathroom offers the ultimate in rest and relaxation.

Finally, emerge into the soothing and soporific master bedroom, with shimmering feature wallpaper and plush carpet underfoot. Views extend over the decking to the rear, whilst mirrored fitted wardrobes provide plenty of storage to the opposite wall, where there is a dressing table and ample plug sockets for hairdryers and other appliances.

Step outside into the sunny south-facing garden at Winster. High hedging provides a buffer of privacy, whilst the tucked away patio privacy allows you to escape the real world and soak up the sunshine.

Secure gates leading out to Thornbarrow Road and the porch to the front prevent children and pets from venturing out onto the road, with so much lush lawn to scamper about on and explore.

Landscaped and bursting with colour, spring is a chorus of blossom, with rhododendrons and azaleas coming into bloom. Mock oranges and buddleia follow up in summer, followed by the fiery shades of autumn, creating a garden that offers colour, scent and interest throughout the seasons. A wildlife friendly garden, spy birds, hedgehogs and a few fish in the pond, seeking to evade the occasional visit from the resident heron!

A versatile home, with potential to offer multigenerational living, Winster is a light, spacious and flexible home with fantastic flow; ideal for entertaining, relaxing and working from home. Quite simply, Winster is a beautiful family home you will never want to leave.
