Eyhorne Place is an architect-designed modern house, completed in 2011 to a high specification. The clever design gives much of the exterior the appearance of a traditional garden wall which echoes a listed wall nearby. This ensures it blends into the environment and listed buildings nearby. There are huge picture windows at the rear and a massive roof lantern above the central dining room ensuring the property has generous natural light. The front door opens to a lobby, with access to the utility room and the kitchen/breakfast room. This features a range of contemporary wall and floor units with a large central island and modern integrated appliances while the breakfast area has space for a sizeable table for more informal dining and bi-fold doors to the courtyard garden.
The dining room is at the heart of the house, with a large vaulted sky lantern, and doors to the sitting room. Both rooms are over 30 feet in length and make a wonderful entertaining space, and in summer this may extend into the garden through 2 sets of triple pane sliding glass doors
The accommodation is completed by a large master bedroom with built-in storage and a contemporary en suite bathroom with separate walk-in shower. There are two further well-proportioned bedrooms, one with patio doors to the garden terrace, and a spacious modern family bathroom with bath and walk-in shower.
