This stylish detached home, built in 2009, not only has spacious accommodation, a village location and open views over countryside, it also has modest running costs.
The reason for those low running costs that is that Field Gate House, in Fir Tree Lane, Sudbrook, has economical air source heating, combined with the Government’s renewable heating incentives, which provide a current rebate of approximately £2,500 a year. It is currently on the market with Grantham’s Fine and Country agency at a price of £585,000.
And as well as low running costs, the impressive building houses a kitchen/dining room with sun room, generous sitting room, family room, home office, four genuine double bedrooms, and quality en suite and family bathrooms; it is situated on a plot approaching a third of an acre which offers attractive rural views.
Built to the vendors’ own specification, the building has plenty of light and space because they opted for a better-proportioned four-bedroom property with generous hall and landing areas, rather than pursuing a five-bedroom layout.
Entering via a wide porch, a visitor will see a generous entrance hall with staircase to a galleried landing, built-in double cloaks cupboard, oak flooring, coving and double doors to the sitting room. The cloakroom is fitted in Victorian style with a mosaic tiled floor, washstand with cupboard below and toilet with wooden-encased cistern.
The study faces the front, while the kitchen/dining room is at the heart of the house and has a sun room off overlooking the patio and rear garden and double doors to the adjoining family room. The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of base cupboards with granite working surfaces and complimentary eye level cupboards together with twin dresser units. There is a central island with breakfast bar. The sink has a filter tap and flexible spray hose, while applicances include a range cooker, integrated fridge and dishwasher.
There is a utility room with a range of matching cupboards and worktops with an inset one-and-a-half bowl sink.
Off the kitchen is a family room with an open fireplace with a high output multi-fuel stove. The oak flooring has under floor heating and there is a wide bay window to the front.
The triple aspect sitting room offers a superb lounge area that is completely seperate from the rest of the house. It has a Victorian-style open hearth fireplace in pewter with tiled insets and a marble surround.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has windows to side and rear and an additional Velux roof light. A dressing area with fitted wardrobe cupboards leads to the luxury en suite bathroom, which has a freestanding bath with wall-mounted chrome taps and twin basins on a tiled pedestal, toilet and open walk-in shower with large rain head. The walls and floor are tiled and there is spot lighting and a chrome heated towel rail.
The family bathroom has a white suite comprising corner bath, large basin, toilet and seperate corner shower cubicle. The walls and floor are tiled.
Outside is a double garage and a self-contained office which overlooks the garden.
Field Gate House stands behind a walled front garden. A gravelled drive through a five-bar wooden gate provides ample parking and a turning area. The garden is mainly lawn and there is gated side access to the rear garden, which enjoys a south-facing aspect over open countryside and has a patio, deck, lawn and border.
