Welcome to the Spence, a remarkable five bedroom family home with bold architecture, great flow, and a timeless décor. One of the standout rooms is the kitchen dining area, with its magnificent open ceiling, and feature window spanning over two floors. There is also a grand entrance hallway, two reception rooms, gallery landing and five dream bedrooms, three of which have en-suite bathrooms. This is a home filled with treasures, designed for creating moments you can cherish.

From the moment you approach this home it feels special. There’s the landscaped garden, garage, and driveway with ample parking, leading you towards the front door. Stepping through, we have a large, carpeted vestibule with console table, and internal access to the garage.

Moving through glass doors, we find ourselves in the main hallway, an open and grand space that creates a warm reception area. The herringbone oak floor flows throughout the ground floor and adds class. Solid wooden banisters adorn the staircase, with the lipped lower step providing a speckle of grandeur. A jute rug with black border brings welcoming comfort, and we have a large plant on a pedestal table creating a point of interest.

As we move through to the lounge, we find a large room with dual aspect windows, including one which wraps around the far corner. The couch is strategically placed to make the most of this view, and again, a jute rug is used to soften the herringbone flooring and make for a more relaxing space. The overall theme of the room feels Scandinavian inspired with the colour and furniture choices. There is also some beautiful dark wood lounge furniture, and a large and leafy plant tucked into the corner.

Progressing to the other end of the hallway, we find a simply wonderful open plan kitchen and dining space. The first thing to note is the opening in the ceiling which extends upwards, where we see the area is overlooked by the gallery landing above. There is also a large glass window spanning two floors which provides a beautiful year round backdrop for your dining experience, looking out to the garden and up to the skies. The French doors at the base of the window also open out on to the slabbed garden patio area.

The round dining table is modestly dressed in plates and cutlery, with modern seating with a sleek black frame. In the centre sits a large plant with lots of green leaves and feathery gold branches extending upwards. Turning towards the kitchen, we find a breakfast bar with comfortable cushioned white seats, and a solid curved black counter top. Then we arrive at the main kitchen area, which has a cosy traditional feel despite its large floor area. There are a lot of units, and they are broken up by using two different colours of cabinet door, a mix of white and black. Recipe books and accessories are peppered across the marble counter tops, with a matching splashback, while the under unit LED lighting adds a modern touch. Integrated appliances include two ovens, a large hob, dishwasher, and fridge freezer, while the utility room has more space for appliances to be plumbed in. The whole package comes together to create a room with a striking look that worthy of a magazine cover.

Off the kitchen and dining room, there is a second reception room. Again, with classic décor, this is a more informal space with the addition of a television. Perhaps this could be a room where life moves a little bit slower and you can truly switch off and enjoy some peaceful time alone, or with the family. With views across the landscaped back garden, you can picture yourself grabbing a hot drink, curling up on the sofa and watching the world go by.

Completing the ground floor is a stylish W.C. The lower half of the walls has a marble effect tile with a chrome trim while the upper portion is painted a deep navy. This tones well with the dark brown modular sink unit, and paired with the illuminated frame mirror, creates a modern and stylish bathroom with a pop of colour. 

Ascending the carpeted staircase, we reach the aforementioned gallery landing. It is strikingly spacious, so much so that we have added another pedestal with a large vase of vibrant flowers to the area, and even find ourselves partial to replacing this with a Christmas tree during the festive season. From the landing, we can also appreciate the two storey window from another viewpoint, with an aerial view of the kitchen dining area in addition to the window. 

Bedroom one is a very generously sized room. The bed sits up against the back wall with a tall headboard, and symmetrically placed brown and blue scatter pillows give a fresh appearance. There is ample fitted wardrobe space with white sliding wardrobe doors, and contemporary bedroom furniture complementing the tonal colour scheme. There is also an en-suite with shower cubicle, which has a clean and bright atmosphere with white speckled tiling, smart units, chrome towel warmer, and an illuminated wall mirror. 

Bedroom two has more of the herringbone flooring from downstairs, with a large jute rug taking up most of the floor space, adding a touch of comfort. The bed has a traditionally shaped headboard, but the navy colour gives it a modern update, while the bedding is lavishly decorated with thick sheets and pillows. There is also a small sofa at the foot of the bed, as well as a white dressing table and large potted green plant. This bedroom has a huge wardrobe area, tucked away behind a door, which leads to a corridor with storage down both sides and a large mirror at the end, perfect for checking your outfit in style. Then there’s another en-suite with marble tiling on the floor and walls, creating a sophisticated and streamlined look. Furthermore, this en-suite has its own curved bathtub adding an extra slice of elegance.

It's not often you find three en-suite bedrooms but that’s exactly what you get with the Spence. The third bedroom has rich brown wooden beside units with a matching dresser, and a colour scheme consisting of black, gold, ochre, and brown tones. There’s also a stylish sliding fitted wardrobe. The bathroom has a shower cubicle, sanitaryware and a chrome towel warmer.

Bedroom four is roughly the same size as bedroom three and mixes up the design slightly to create something that is distinguished but still ties in with the rest of the rooms. Wooden panelling in a cooling turquoise green colour covers the full back wall, tying in nicely with the colour of the sliding wardrobe doors, while the other walls are painted a pale grey. A sconce light sits above each of the bedside tables, and the ochre lampshade and bed throw complement the colour palette of the turquoise while also tying in with other rooms. At the foot of this bed sits a chair and laptop. 

The final bedroom is a little bit different in style, with double doors opening into the room. It has been designed with multi-use in mind and makes a stunning home office. With the herringbone flooring once again resurrected, and a stylish minimal desk taking centre stage, this is one inspiring place to get work done. The dual aspect windows give great views over the front of the property, and the curtain rail curves around to give a smooth finish. Meanwhile, the back wall is inset into some bespoke storage space, with plenty of room for displaying objects along the worktop. Whether it be a family photo, award, or something meaningful to you, it’s the perfect place to show it off.

The last stop on the tour is the upstairs bathroom accessible from the hallway and is arguably the most indulgent of them all. There is a bathtub and separate shower cubicle, and slimline display shelves with unique smaller tiling running down the back, illuminated by a chrome downlight. We have added some vases and candles to fill the shelves, and a little pamper basket sits in the shower. 

This is a home that we think you will be able to appreciate day after day, with so many highlights and special spots where you can unravel and enjoy your day. It really is the height of modern living, with integrated appliances, extreme privacy with the three en-suites, and the flexibility of the two reception rooms to adapt to fit your families’ requirements.
