Aspire is delighted to offer for sale this stunning individual family home, built five years ago in a tranquil setting in the small village of Hemington. Cherry Tree House has so much to offer. Bought from new by the current owners, they have thoughtfully extended to the side, as well as to the rear, creating modern-day, open-plan living overlooking an idyllic garden.
This inspiring, detached house has versatile accommodation on the ground floor having scope to be opened up further but currently providing two separate ground floor reception rooms at the front. At the back of the house, overlooking the garden, is the open plan living and entertaining space. Also included is a utility area, study and cloakroom. To the first floor there is a a generously sized main bedroom, with a large walk-in floor-to-ceiling dressing area and an en-suite shower room. Additionally, there are two further double bedrooms and a bathroom.
A gravelled driveway at the front of the house has room for three vehicles, and the rear garden has been carefully designed with different zones, including a covered outdoor living space.
Cherry Tree House has been tastefully styled, both internally and externally, and attention to detail is evident throughout the layout and quality of fixtures and fittings.
Entering from a canopied porch, the main door opens into the entrance hall, which has been extended to the side, creating a large space with a good-sized storage cupboard. There is a feeling of spaciousness and light, enhanced by the Velux rooflight and streamlined oak-effect Karndean flooring to the ground floor.
The cloakroom offers a low-level WC and wash basin, set into a vanity unit with contemporary splash tiling.
This room was previously the main lounge to the house, before the building was extended, but is now divided in two and can easily be returned to one room by removing the internal stud wall. It is currently being used as a gym, but can be used in many other ways. A bay window with storage under the window seat, overlooks the front aspect.
Presently this space is being used as a ground floor bedroom, but again can be utilised to suit the resident’s needs. The window faces the front aspect.
An amazing entertaining and family space has been created at the back of the house, entered through a glass door from the hall. The eye is drawn towards the garden, beyond the sliding glass doors.
The owners have spared no expense in fitting an opulently styled kitchen area, with a fantastic range of Howdens co-ordinating dark blue and grey units, with both wood block and granite worktops. A matching island adds even more storage and worksurface, and the metro brick-tiled splash areas create the perfect backdrop. An integral dishwasher, extractor hood and food waste disposal are included, as is the range cooker, and space is provided for a large fridge/freezer. The ceramic 1.5 bowl sink has a stunning brushed copper tap.
Off the kitchen, a utility area has a larder and cupboards with wood block worktops and plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. Under-stairs storage is also available here.
The dining area has room for a large table and chairs, and the stylish light fittings overhead are to remain.

Metro brick-tiled splashbacks add to the modern style, as do the heated towel rail and ceiling spotlights. An obscure window is to the side aspect.

A gravelled access to the side of the house opens into the rear garden. Much thought has been given to the layout of the garden, with privacy in mind and different zones for the individual requirements of the householders. A raised deck adjoins the rear of the house, with room to sit and enjoy a good view of the rest of the garden, with a lawned area and a fantastic variety of climbing plants, trees, shrubs and flowers. To the side, a gravelled path with an arbour structure, creates a walkway to the end of the garden, where there is an open-fronted outdoor room. This space has room for a settee and other furniture, making an ideal setting for dining. Behind the outdoor room, hidden from view, is ample room for sheds, a greenhouse and storage. Beyond the boundary of Cherry Tree House there is a copse and farmland. At the back of the side extension, a lockable store room allows a good amount of storage.
