This family home in Queens Gate has everything a growing family needs, Sammy Milton writes
Enjoying an exclusive, tucked away position is this extremely well presented family home. Situated within the desirable Queens Gate development in the pleasant area of Stoke Bishop, this four-bedroom detached home is suitable for a variety of purchasers, ranging from retired professional couples to growing families.
This home occupies arguably one of the best spots in the development. Heading up a small cul-de-sac with generous gardens on three sides, the property positively oozes class and charm – and that’s just the outside.
Upon entering the home, the careful detail is immediately apparent. The ground floor encompasses two reception rooms – a large sitting room and a dining room. The sitting room is bright and spacious, with an attractive bay window that lets in lots of natural light. This triple-aspect room offers many delightful features – including a ‘Minister-style' fireplace – and offers plenty of space for winding down with a nice glass of wine with the family.
Doors open up onto the striking dining room. Offering plenty of space for family dinners and Sunday roasts, there is a pleasing front aspect, and it is well lit and styled. A small study is situated just next to the staircase which is perfect for those who work at home,
and you are then immediately led through to the kitchen and breakfast room.
The kitchen is located towards the rear of the home. Featuring prettily tiled flooring, wall and base units and buttercup yellow walls, it is of an excellent size, and is conjoined to an attractive breakfast room that in turn has French doors leading out into the garden – a wonderful dining set up whatever the weather! The ground floor also benefits from a WC and an integral garage accessed via a utility room.
All four of the wonderful bedrooms can be found on the first floor. Three of these have the added benefit of built-in wardrobes, and all feature lovely views, natural light and a good amount of space.
The master bedroom is – of course – particularly special, with a wealth of wardrobes and storage options. As well as this, there’s a luxury en suite shower room. A family bathroom and access to the loft complete this floor, giving you even more storage options, should you need them.
The rear garden is a beautifully relaxing space. Featuring layered patio space and an abundance of lawn, it is the perfect area for children to play and parents to relax in the sheltered seating area towards the rear, and there’s even a potting shed for any budding gardeners.
Stoke Bishop is a most convenient location. Situated just past the Durdam Downs, it is an excellent area for growing families and is close to many independent schools. Getting into the city is hassle-free too, with a number of transport links in the form of road and rail. The opulent Clifton Village is a short drive away, featuring a range of independent boutiques, cafes and restaurants, and just beyond that is the city centre, offering a wider shopping experience!
