Seller Insight Having lived in the original house since I was very young, my parents later bought the second of the neighbouring semi-detached houses which now make up Netherton Lodge as it is today,” says the owner, “also building an extension around the outside and a stunning Orangery. Both of the original houses were gutted completely and combined to essentially create a brand new property designed to specification, all exquisitely finished with light, contemporary interiors.” “Being so perfectly conceived for both comfortable everyday living and easy entertaining, the house is great fun to live in!” the owner continues. “All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, and the impressive speaker system allows us to listen to different music simultaneously in different rooms, perfectly catering to the varying tastes of a family! Downstairs, the sociable open plan configuration of the living accommodation allows plenty of space for parties. The games room and cinema room are favourites with guests, even having the potential to create a home bar for a dedicated party area.” The location too offers much in the way of convenience and leisure possibilities, set in the heart of a popular village surrounded by countryside. “The house is situated within a stone’s throw of the local grocery store across the road,” says the owner, “with schools and other shops also within walking distance. Having grown up and attended school in the area, I am very fond of this lovely village. We love the security of having neighbours, which makes this feel like a very safe place to live.”
The high specification 21st century technology makes life in this house incredibly comfortable, in combination with the contemporary dĂŠcor and spaciousness of the living accommodation lending a feeling of lightness and ease to everyday life.â€?
