An absolutely superb 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom family home which has been creatively extended and fully modernised to form stylish, well planned accommodation with the advantage of a wonderful suite on the second floor incorporating a studio room. NO FORWARD CHAIN
Ferndale was built by the well respected local builder Kingston Homes Ltd in the early 1990's of brick with part tile hung elevations and uPVC sealed unit windows under a tiled roof. During 2017 the house underwent complete renovation and was extended. The architect, Guy Holloway designed three extensions, one over the garage to create larger bedrooms on the first floor with the addition of en-suite shower rooms. An attic extension has formed a fantastic suite, incorporating a double bedroom, shower room and good sized studio. The third extension on the ground floor has created the most lovely open plan kitchen/dining room which has been stylishly fitted with Smallbone (Broadstairs) shaker style units, Dekton work surfaces, and stunning Venetian style mirrored splashbacks. Siemens appliances have been installed including a full height wine fridge and an American style fridge/freezer, with the addition of underfloor heating.
During the renovation the house was completely rewired, replumbed and replastered with new internal solid wood doors fitted. There is Amtico flooring to the ground floor and a new wood burning stove in the sitting room, with the chimney being re-lined. In the bedrooms new wardrobes have been fitted, all with internal lighting, whilst tasteful pendant bedside lighting with two way control switches are present in every bedroom. Recessed downlighters run throughout the property.The bathroom and shower rooms have bronze effect tiled floors and matching part tiled walls, rainwater shower heads, suspended rimless W.C.'s which give a quieter flush, and the mirrors are fitted with heat pads to prevent steaming.
