Water End enjoys a private position set within the grounds of and overlooking, Manor Park Stud and is a bespoke property built by R E Lay of Dunstable in the late 1990’s.
The current owners have been extremely good custodians and have presided over a thorough modernisation and have created a stunning house that is presented in immaculate condition internally and externally. Whilst offering generous accommodation over two floors there is a lapsed planning permission to create further accommodation within the cavernous roof space.
The south facing garden and grounds are a pure delight and offer a high degree of privacy with views over post and railed paddocks. A viewing will be essential to fully appreciate the quality and setting of the property and the lifestyle opportunity it provides.
A paved path leads up to the front door which opens into the tiled Reception Hall with all the reception rooms radiating off and central oak staircase rising to galleried landing. Double doors open into the vaulted sitting room with inglenook fireplace housing Jotul glazed fronted wood burner. A pair of integral glazed doors open into the dining room and conservatory, both enjoying views over the landscaped rear garden with French doors from the conservatory opening onto the swimming pool terrace.
The kitchen/breakfast room lies in the heart of the house and features a bespoke kitchen by New Kitchens of Shefford. The base and eye level units are extensive with Corian worksurfaces and matching central island featuring a six seat breakfast bar. Appliances are all by Miele and include oven, steam oven, combination microwave oven, two warming drawers and five ring induction hob. Full height fridge and freezer along with dishwasher and wine fridge. Double bowl sink with Insinkerator and Quooker hot tap.
A connecting door leads into the utility room with matching fitted units along with enamel sink and Miele washing machine and tumble drier. The second of the two cloakrooms on the ground floor is accessed from the utility room as is the integral double garage. The two remaining rooms on this level are the cosy family room with recessed coal effect gas fire and the study.
The landing is a real feature with fitted oak book shelving, window seat with views across to the stud farm with galleried area overlooking the sitting room.
The master bedroom enjoys a balcony seating area overlooking the beautifully maintained rear garden and has fully tiled en suite shower room and walk in wardrobe. The guest bedroom has recessed wardrobe cupboards and fully tiled bathroom suite with wall mounted shower and rain head. The two remaining bedrooms also benefit from fitted furniture along with en suites with bedroom four’s doubling up as a family bathroom.
The airing cupboard with slatted shelving houses the hot water cylinder with connected pressurised pump with loft hatch revealing the extensive part boarded loft which clearly offers potential to provide further accommodation, subject to planning.
GARDEN AND GROUNDS
To the front, areas of lawn give way to paved terracing and large block pavioured drive offers parking for six vehicles and access to the integral double garage with electric up and over door. A brick wall separates the front from the rear garden which extends to half an acre with gateways at either end.
Running along the rear of the property is an extensive area of Indian sandstone paved terracing offering dining and seating areas with views over the landscaped rear garden. Areas of lawn are divided by well stocked herbaceous borders with native trees providing dappled shade. The Japanese water garden sits in the corner with covered decked seating area.
Lying close to the conservatory is the outdoor air source heated swimming pool, edged by Palm trees with electric safety cover with Lugarde summer house, pool plant room and covered raised decking housing the hot tub. Situated at the far end of the garden is a wooden gazebo overlooking the adjoining grass paddocks, Lugarde garden store and separate potting shed.
