The Spinney is a house that spreads out rather than up.
Located in The Shrubbery in Elford near Tamworth, this unique home has been extensively remodelled and upgraded by the current vendors.
The living space is mostly open plan with just a few steps up to divide areas for relaxing or dining.
The bedrooms are on the same level as the reception room and kitchen but there is lower ground floor with a playroom/games room. Interiors in The Spinney are immaculate while the front garden enjoys a rural outlook.
A wide, gated driveway leads up to the house and the sheltered front door.
The entrance hall has slate tiled flooring and double doors into the lounge. This spacious L-shaped room has stunning full-length windows to the front. There is solid oak flooring and a log burner (available by negotiation) set on a tiled hearth.
Slate tiled steps lead into a dining room with more solid oak flooring and windows to the side and front. A patio door opens out to the balcony/terrace above the playroom, providing an impressive outdoor entertaining space with delightful views towards open fields and farmland
The family room or games room, which is reached via steps from the dining area, has windows to the front and full-length window to the side. If a playroom wasn’t needed it could make an additional entertaining space or cinema room.
The breakfast kitchen has doors from the hallway and the lounge. It is fitted with dark oak wall and base units, with black granite work tops over, integral dishwasher and wine cooler, space for an American-style fridge freezer and a Rangemaster stove (stove negotiable) with Elan gas hob over and Rangemaster extractor hood.
There is a window to the back overlooking the gardens, slate tiled flooring and a breakfast bar to one end.
A utility has more storage and work surfaces with room for appliances. A patio door opens out to the garden and there is a cloakroom with toilet and basin.
The bedrooms comprise a master suite with windows to the front and full-length window to the side, plus a dressing room with patio door to the gardens. An en-suite comprises a white suite with pedestal wash basin, toilet, a double shower cubicle, tiled splashbacks and underfloor heating beneath slate tiles.
A guest bedroom has a patio door to the garden and another contemporary en-suite with pedestal basin, toilet, double shower cubicle, tiling to splashbacks and slate tiled floor.
There are two other bedrooms and a family bathroom with modern white suite featuring a pedestal basin, toilet, a large bathtub with shower over, tiled splashbacks, slate tiled floors and a Velux skylight
