New House Park is a highly sought after location. With many substantial houses along the road, it is a very popular destination for those looking for a home with real wow-factor. The Citys main train station is located within 1.5 miles for a 20 mins link into London St Pancras and the City centre is within 2 miles with its vibrant array of shopping facilities, bars and restaurants. The M25 and North Orbital road are a short drive away to permit easy access to local and national road networks.
Set back from the road behind a gated entrance, there is a sense of real privacy. Then walk in through the front door and cloakroom you are greeted with an impressive, carefully-lit hallway with views to the back garden. There is access to stairs to the first floor, a W/C and formal lounge with hi spec projector and drop-down screen offering sanctuary away from the main bustle of the house. A spacious, bright and thoughtfully laid out main reception area presents a real hub for family life as well as a great entertainment space for guests in the evening. At over 35.5 feet in length there is plenty of room for the kitchen with island/breakfast bar, dining space and separate lounge with utility/larder off the kitchen. Near floor-to-ceiling windows allow in an abundance of natural light and access onto the rear garden.
Off the main reception area is a further reception room which runs over 22 feet in length and provides flexibility as a formal dining room or playroom etc. This in turn leads to a study at one end of the house which offers a quieter spot for a work/home office.
Up the stairs to the landing presents an expansive view of the first floor living area. Double doors access into the master bedroom suite with its substantial bedroom, extensive fitted wardrobe space along one wall and a his and hers ensuite bathroom with free standing bath and walk-in shower befitting of the suite. A further spacious three bedrooms are revealed on this floor along with a walk-in shower ensuite to one of the bedrooms. A separate luxury bathroom beautifully appointed with dual aspect windows enjoys a separate bath and walk-in rainforest shower. In addition, a second utility room provides a handy facility to do the laundry without regularly hiking garments up and downstairs, plus there is space on the landing that works very neatly as a chill out area.
This floor offers really adaptable living space. Two large rooms with a separate shower room can be a perfect getaway for teenage children, additional office space, or indeed a live-in au-pair or relative.
Parking provisions include a driveway for multiple cars and a garage to the front of the house. Off the second reception is a patio area. To the rear, a second, spacious patio runs the width of the house which is accessible from the kitchen dining area. A well landscaped garden with a mix of trees and shrubs then leads to a further patio located at the back of the garden in a secluded spot to really capture the afternoon and evening sun.
