Astor Gardens is a brand new, private, gated development, tucked away off the main road in a quiet cul-de-sac location built by Countrywide Design. Plot 9 is a stunning 5 bedroom family home covering an impressive 2,441 square feet of accommodation and finished to an exceptional contemporary standard and ready to move into now.
DESCRIPTION As you walk through the front door into plot 9, the welcoming entrance hall takes you straight through to the hub of the home which is the feature double aspect open plan kitchen/dining/ living space at the rear of the house. Beautiful views over the private garden, it is easy to understand why this is our favourite room. The contemporary bespoke fitted kitchen is sleek and smart in its design; with Silestone quarts worktops, a range of Neff integrated appliances and finished off with undercabinet LED lighting. The sizeable space opens out with room for a dining table and even a sofa if desired, creating a perfect room for entertaining guests in, for dinner parties or for the whole family to enjoy quality time together. Matching bi-fold in the kitchen and the living room provide the access to the garden.
The separate cosy double aspect living room is ideal as a snug/TV room away from the busy focal point of the family kitchen. Off the hallway there is a utility room which perfectly matches the wall and base units of the kitchen, with a stainless-steel sink and space to hide away the washing machine and tumble dryer which has allowed for extra cupboard space in the kitchen. Importantly for many buyers, the access into the garage via the utility room will be a key factor. The ground floor flows comfortably, with the added benefit of a cloakroom, ideal for guest use. Lastly, the study/ third reception room allows for various usage whether it’s a work from home space, a formal dining room for special occasions or a playroom for children to enjoy.
The first and second floors accommodate an impressive five double bedrooms for a growing family, each fitted with luxurious carpets, brushed chrome ironmongery and with some bedrooms having either fitted wardrobes, hanging space or walk-in wardrobes. Bedroom one, located on the second floor with its en-suite and built in wardrobes is the perfect retreat. The family bathroom and en-suites are contemporary fitted, Porcelanosa design including Porcelanosa wall and floor tiles. For added comfort they are finished with electric underfloor heating, chrome heated towel rails and fitted mirrors accompanied with LED lighting above.
The private rear garden has been professionally landscaped, it is a great space to enjoy BBQs in the summer and for children to run around.
