The accommodation

Built in the heart of the conservation area in 2002, D arenberg House looks and feels as is if it has always been there. Mellow reclaimed bricks and tiles belie a stunning contemporary home tucked behind one of Englands most beautiful High Streets, yet the loudest noise you are likely to hear is birdsong. We will start inside, so walk into the garden and over a bridge to the front door, into large open plan L shaped room with high ceilings and computer controlled feature lighting. The kitchen dining room is first with a mixture of high gloss and driftwood cupboards, silestone and stainless steel work surfaces provide a feeling of commercial kitchen meets high design. All appliances are fitted including steam ovens, boiling tap and stylish high level extraction. Turning to their right we walk into the drawing room with windows to all 4 sides, solid oak flooring and designer living flame fire with concealed storage. A door from here opens into a cloakroom with utility area to the right.

We will turn right and go into the second bedroom, a double with window to the front and double wardrobes. The third bedroom is next, a good single(which can accommodate a double if desired), again with built in wardrobes. The master bedroom is a generous double with range of wardrobes and lovely en-suite shower room. Finally the family bathroom with feature Duravit Paiova trapezoidal bath and rainwater shower over.
