The vision of the vendors of Haycroft, a converted cottage in the shadows of St. Peter's Church in Elford, is utterly astounding. Viewing has never been more important to fully appreciate the exceptional nature of a home. Perfectly combining the inherent historic charm of this delightful dwelling with some extraordinary contemporary twists. The end product is one of the most impressive homes we have marketed in recent years, in one of the most enviable locations. A sprawling ground floor is entered by an open vestibule immediately inviting you in to the most versatile of family living spaces including bespoke kitchen with large island, dining area, family space and a playroom/study, with underfloor heating. All with enticing glimpses of the floating gallery landing above. This wonderfully sociable space is perfectly supported by two further reception rooms providing the necessary flexibility of a house of this size. The ground floor is then completed by a guest cloakroom, utility and boot room. The Hogwarts inspired landing is the central feature of the first floor separating an opulent principal bedroom suite and shower room from three further bedrooms and a luxury family bathroom. The accommodation is further enhanced by a partial garage conversion providing a guest annex with shower room. Externally the property occupies the most secluded of positions at the very end of this private drive at the heart of the village. The gardens boast an extensive block paved driveway, with electric gates, lawned fore garden, detached garage and a beautifully presented rear garden perfectly designed to be equally adept at catering to the needs of three sporty sons and two sociable parents.
The perfect family home in the perfect location.
The sprawling ground floor is entered via an open vestibule porch inviting you in to a wonderful open plan family space providing a bespoke kitchen with large island, dining area, comfortable seating space and a children's playroom or study area. It is most definitely the 'social hub' of this home.
The flexibility of the ground floor has been greatly improved by two further reception rooms radiating from the main family space, a beautifully presented living room with access on to the rear garden and then a more cozy snug with log burner more suitable for the winter months. The ground floor is then completed by the more functional rooms. A guest cloakroom, utility room and a boot room.
An equally impressive first floor is centred around a Hogwarts inspired floating landing hovering elegantly above the kitchen. An opulent principal bedroom suite overlooks the rear garden and has a luxury en suite 'walk through' shower room with bespoke wardrobes. There are three further bedrooms and an impressive family bathroom all tastefully finished in neutral tones with a pleasant mix of exposed ceiling beams, period style radiators and oak gallery landing.
GARAGE & STUDIO
The accommodation is further enhanced by the conversion of half of the detached garage to a guest annex, studio, gym or treatment room with en suite shower room. The remaining garage space also has power and lighting, up and over door and is finished in an attractive cedar cladding.
WHY WE LOVE THIS HOUSE...
"We fell in love with Haycroft the second we saw it! Viewing it for the first time with our first child in a baby carrier we knew we'd have a happy family here. We have spent the last 11 years transforming Haycroft into a beautiful home, inside and out.
The garden and outside space, has been the childrens' playground and the perfect entertaining space for family and friends over the years. Haycroft stole our hearts because of its tranquil location, tucked away at the end of a private drive; bordering the stunning tree lined Avenue leading to St. Peters Church.
We moved here for Village life and its lived up to that ideal in every sense; we share a wonderful community with our neighbours and at just two minutes from our lovely primary school and village pub, its been the perfect family home for our three boys".
A family friendly garden doubling up as the perfect entertaining space which is a prerequisite feature in this immensely sociable village. The elevated lawn doubles up as a football pitch with manicured hedge boundaries and the wide expanse of patio easily caters for comfortable seating, dining and dancing area if required. The gated fore garden boasts an extensive block paved private driveway, detached garage and gated access through to the delightful tree lined Avenue leading to St. Peters Church. The centrepiece of the village.
