Built in 2002, Beechwood is part of an exclusive 4 house development and is located privately on approx. 5.51 acres of lands. This unique property was architecturally designed and the attention to detail is impressive with special attention being paid to the light to the rear of the building and views to the surrounding countryside.
The entrance hall is circular in shape with a sky light, spot lights and marble floor and offers a welcoming space. This leads in to the drawing room with solid fuel fireplace, surround sound with views to the rear back garden. The bright dining room is located just off the kitchen for formal events or entertaining and is finished with spot lighting. This leads into the magnificent kitchen that is truly at the heart of the home. The architect has designed the kitchen in a way that makes the room part of the landscaped garden, while still retaining the warmth of the southeast facing aspect, with its plentiful windows. The kitchen has a convenient island unit with a black granite worktop for everyday use. There is good access through two sets of patio doors making the patio area excellent for entertaining or having barbeques. Just off the kitchen is a superb TV room, with wood burning stove and carpets.

On the first floor, there are 4 excellent bedrooms with a large landing space suited for a reading/study area that looks over the kitchen. The principal bedroom suite has stunning views over the surrounding countryside with east and south facing aspects. The room is fully carpeted with recessed lighting. There is a walk-in wardrobe and a superb ensuite to the rear with tiled flooring, bath, wc, double shower and sink.
