Hunters Estate Agent is delighted to introduce this stunning butterley brick fronted detached family home. The property which is set in a small private enclave was built in 2009 on the site of the old Fairbrook House and was designed by the well-known architect Brian O'Donoghue. Extending to a generous 213sq.m/2,293sq.ft the property has been further upgraded by the owners with the addition of a stunning Newcastle Design kitchen and bespoke built in storage units and window seats. Outside the large west facing rear garden has been landscaped by award winning garden designer Darren Joyce to create a stunning low maintenance retreat ideal for kids with an inset trampoline, artificial lawn, mature specimen planting and a large sun terrace. The three houses in the enclave face out to the Owendoher River and the trees and greenery on its banks give wonderful privacy to the houses. Throughout the property there are generous proportions and a wonderful quality of light due in large part to the sunny aspect and clever use of glazing. Viewing is highly recommended.
