One of four stunning properties built to exacting standards by Alfred Homes in 2018, 'Combe House' has first class accommodation behind a pleasing 'Hampshire Downs blend' brick façade and inset windows with sash openers under a clay tiled roof. The property has high ceilings throughout, an impressive staircase rising from a centralised entrance hall with an impressive double height galleried landing that provides a beautifully light and airy circulation space. The heart of the house is a 'live in' kitchen/dining/sitting room. The utility room and kitchen area are fitted with bespoke 'Charles Yorke' in frame cabinetry. There are also integrated Miele appliances and a Falcon range cooker. The spectacular island and breakfast counter is ideal for food preparation and casual dining. The room is open to a sitting and dining space with bifold doors that lead onto the terrace. The drawing room has two windows to the front aspect and a limestone fire surround with a gas living flame fire. The study/family room is currently used as a formal dining room. A utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation. The principal bedroom is approached through double doors and has a large window overlooking the rear garden and is flanked by a fitted dressing room and a bathroom with bath and separate shower. There are two further large double bedrooms, both with en-suites and fitted wardrobes. A fourth double is on the second floor and is served by a shower room. Externally the house has a block paved driveway with parking spaces to the front, a lawn and planted borders. Electrically operated gates provide access to the double garage. The rear garden is a good size and has a terrace directly behind the property which graduates onto a lawn with shrubs, specimen trees and a herbaceous border, all enclosed by close boarded fencing to one side and laurel hedging the other.
