Milnthorpe Road – Meads

This magnificent detached house, just a few steps away from the highly sought after Meads village, offers an unparalleled blend of contemporary luxury and timeless elegance. Built at the end of the 1960s as a caretaker’s house, although never used as such, this house is unique in the area due to its modern style.

An Impressive Entrance

Enter through the bespoke cast iron double gates onto the spacious driveway, with detailed paving, planters, and ample room for three cars. Steps on the right lead to a paved front garden that is bathed in sunlight during the morning, with trellises providing a sense of seclusion from the road. This space is perfect for catching some morning sunshine and setting a tranquil tone for your day.

Opposite you will find a garage that has been converted into a home office and storage area. With a sink and electric heating, as well as a separate area currently being used as a store area, this space has complete versatility for anyone looking to work from home, for an artist or also a hobbyist.

Step inside through the bespoke solid oak front door and be greeted by a charming tiled entryway. One of the features in this home are its oak veneer doors creating a modern and sophisticated look.

With a white tower radiator and chrome features, it is the small touches that give this home an elevated elegance. To the right you will find a cupboard containing the Baxi combi boiler and storage for shoes.

On the left is a comprehensive utility room, featuring a corner shower, toilet, and an undermounted, single bowl sink. There is also a space for a washer/dryer and lots of additional storage. The utility room has a side access door that can be used as a separate entryway to the house, perfect for cleaning up after lazy days at the nearby beach, or leisurely walks across the Downs.

Dining in Style

On the right of the entryway is a partially glazed oak veneered door that leads into the light blue shaker style kitchen, which emanates charm and comfort. With a built-in Neff induction hob and double electric oven, it has everything you need to provide excellent hospitality. Other integrated  appliances include a Bosch dishwasher and granite composite squared-off double sink.

A glass panel allows you to see right through to the garden, flooding the room with glorious natural light. A glass-panelled oak veneered door leads into the open-plan living and dining area, a versatile space that is great for harmonious family living. Herringbone engineered bamboo flooring runs throughout the space and there are built-in bespoke bookshelves and an audio-visual unit that give this room a unique appeal. The electric feature fireplace creates a convivial setting, perfect for cosying up in the evenings with your loved ones. Glass sliding doors take you out into the meticulous back garden.

Al Fresco

Step out into the beautifully landscaped garden, your own private haven. This truly is a suntrap, with a pagoda and climbing rambling rose creating the perfect space to entertain friends or to simply enjoy a moment of calm in such beautiful surroundings.

The garden is home to an array of shrubs and trees including an acer, hydrangeas, cornus, ceanothus, agapanthus, jasmines and hebe. With slate chips in the borders, this is a relatively low maintenance garden, yet rewarding in its natural beauty. The grey paving makes this the perfect spot for summer barbecues. The garden has side access to the driveway and a covered area at the side of the house, which is ideal for storage.

And So To Bed

Returning to the striking entryway, ascend the luxurious wood and chrome staircase, past a lovely big window on the landing, to discover the four double bedrooms.

To the right of the staircase you will find a shower room with an Aquilisia Visage smart shower and fuschia hygiene board, a combined toilet and bidet, and sink unit with storage. A practical yet luxurious bathroom, perfect for retreating to for a moment of self-care.

Next door you will find a spacious double bedroom and ensuite, with large windows and high ceilings. Waking up to the gentle embrace of sunlight cascading through the expansive window is one the great pleasures of this property. This room has access onto a roof terrace at the front of the house. With outside lighting and a partial privacy screen, where better is there to enjoy a romantic summer’s evening with a glass of wine or two?

A linen cupboard separates this bedroom and the next double bedroom. Fitted wardrobes maximise the space and bring a sleek elegance to the room.

Another two double bedrooms round off the upstairs space, both with large bright windows and built-in wardrobes. Both bedrooms at the back have delightful views over the garden, which creates a wonderful sense of tranquillity.
