This executive family home on The Bluebells is an exceptional contemporary property with high-quality interiors, writes James Higgins
This well-appointed family home has four bedrooms, great open-plan living areas and a generous garden. The Bluebells gives onto Bradley Stoke Way and this arterial road links to Gloucester Road, the M4, Bristol Parkway as well as branches of Tesco Extra and Aldi.
On the ground floor there is an entrance hallway which opens onto an open-plan kitchen/family room and an open-plan living/dining room. There are sliding patio doors at one end of the living/dining room and a box bay window at the other. These two large through-rooms are flexible spaces for entertaining and family living; the living/dining room measures 8.16m long and the kitchen/family room is 32m².
The kitchen has two double-glazed UPVC windows overlooking the garden and a matching double-doors onto the rear patio. The kitchen has beautiful, bespoke handmade maple units with soft-close drawers and cupboards, a pull-out larder, and a matching central island. There are granite worktops and splashbacks, spotlights, and integrated appliances that include a five-ring gas hob, integrated electric oven and combi oven/microwave. The room boasts underfloor heating throughout and opens to a vaulted ceiling with feature beams. Completing the ground floor is a WC and an integral garage which can be accessed from the hallway.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms, a family bathroom and an en suite adjoining the master accommodation. The master bedroom benefits from a box bay window, two built-in wardrobes and a shower room with a three-piece suite, corner shower cubicle, fully tiled walls and floors, and a heated towel rail. The family bathroom has a wash basin in a vanity unit and a panelled bath with a shower and glazed screen.
The front garden has a block-paved driveway large enough for two vehicles, a gate to the side providing pedestrian access to the rear garden and a small lawn bordered by several mature trees and shrubs. The walled rear garden is mainly laid to lawn and additionally features a paved patio area and mature planting.
Just a few minutes from the property is the Three Brooks Nature reserve – a specially set aside green space on either side of Stoke, Bradley and Patchway Brooks. These tributaries converge at Three Brooks Lake which is a calm oasis surrounded by woodland. It’s a fantastic local convenience for dog walking, kids and summer picnics. There are also good primary and secondary schools within walking distance of the property.
