Overview

A truly magnificent, well presented, detached, 5 bedroom house found on the very edge of the village of Crossgates which lies amidst the beautiful Mid-Wales countryside and sits in approximately 3 acres of landscaped gardens and pasture land and set in an elevated position presenting some of the most magnificent, panoramic views you would ever dream to see across the scenic Welsh countryside.

Finished in 1996 having taken 5 years to build by the current owner who is a reputable and well-known builder within the area, Highleighs is a spacious and beautifully maintained, perfect family home, which oozes quality throughout and in total offers 5 bedrooms, 6 reception rooms and 5 bathrooms. Not just an exceptional, one-of-a-kind house which any owner would be proud to call "home", Highleighs also presents the option, due to its layout, of separating the ground and lower ground floor accommodation and in the process creating a 1 bedroom, self-contained annexe, which could very easily be shut off from the rest of the house and have the benefit of its own private garden area and garage space and pose as an ideal guest house or perhaps a full time residence for an elderly family member or a more independent child.

Outside, Highleighs is perfect for those with equestrian interests and has grounds stretching to approximately 3 acres which are ideally suited for 2/3 horses and is largely made up of a paddock, which is bordered to the one side with a woodland and a stream, as well as feature pond. Additionally there is also a fantastic, detached 2 storey, 3 bay stable block, which has a large storage room on the first floor and a hard standing yard at the front. The property itself offers plenty of parking for numerous vehicles including a motorhome/caravan and also has the benefit of a separate workshop and large garaging under the house for at least 3 cars with lots more space for storage as well.

A wonderful property, which really does have the wow factor and is a must view in our eyes, Highleighs at times may lead you to believe you are in the South of France when sitting back and relaxing on the private rear balcony area, with a glass of wine on a warmth summers evening and enjoying the beautiful, distant views across sunny Mid Wales!

The Property

Approached over a brick-paved drive which leads around to the front of the property, a paved path leads from the parking area to the front door. Inside the L-shaped entrance hall has a door off to the left into the dining room which subsequently leads into the sitting room, kitchen and conservatory, frontwards a door opens to a stairwell and leads down to the lower ground floor accommodation, while to the right the hallway continues and leads into the four bedrooms and the family bathroom. All four bedrooms benefit from built-in mirrored wardrobes, while the master and bedroom two also have the luxury of private en-suites and enjoy distant rear views. Additionally the master bedroom also has patio doors which slide open and lead out to the rear balcony area. Back into the living accommodation, the dining room has ample space for set of table and chairs and has an archway off to the left leading into the kitchen, double doors to the right opening into the large sitting room and sliding patio doors to the rear which open into the conservatory, which enjoys wonderful views over and beyond the paddock and further patio doors leading outside to the front. The sitting room has a triple aspect to the rear and sides and again has fantastic, far reaching views, there is plenty of space for a three-piece-suite and additional furnishings, a feature 'Clearview' wood-burning stove and sliding patio doors leading outside to the impressive rear balcony area. At the opposite side of the house, the kitchen has 2 windows to the front and a window to the side and is fitted with a bespoke range of matching wall and base cupboards with tiled worktops over, a breakfast bar and an inset sink. Integrated appliances include a double oven, fitted ceramic hob with an extractor unit above, while there is also space and plumbing for a dishwasher.

On the lower ground floor a hallway has separate doors leading into a shower room, a utility room, bedroom five and the additional reception room and overall could be very easily separated from the ground floor accommodation and become a self-contained annexe. The utility/kitchen area is installed with a range of wall and base cupboards with fitted worktops over, an inset sink unit and houses the boiler servicing the entire property. There is also space and plumbing for a washing machine, tumble dryer and free-standing fridge/freezer, while a window provides a rear aspect and a door opens into one of the large integral garages. back from the hallway, bedroom five is a double bedroom with plenty of space for additional furnishings and also benefits from a built-in double wardrobe, while 2 windows offer a dual aspect to side and rear, again offering wonderful views. The reception room has space for three-piece-suite and leads into a dining room which is swamped with natural light owing to a large window to the rear, which frames a distant view. From the reception room a door leads into another bathroom, while from the dining room a door opens into a conservatory, which in the summer becomes a real sun trap!

Outside

The property is approached up a brick paved, private drive, which passes the 2 integral garage doors on the right hand side and leads around to the front of the property where there is plenty of space to turn and park numerous vehicles of all shapes and sizes. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with paved steps leading to the right of the house and down to the garaging area once more. From here a pathway continues around to the rear of the property and leads to a private decked area, which currently accommodates a hot tub (available via separate negotiation). From here double doors open into a useful workshop, which is located under the lower ground floor accommodation and is installed with power and lighting and also poses as a excellent storage area. From the decking, paved steps lead back up past the 2 conservatories and around to the front of the property, but not before passing a wooden wicket gate which opens into the paddock. Back around at the front of the house, 2 separate wooden gateways open and have tracks, which lead to either side of the detached 3 bay, 2 story stable block. The bottom gate has a track which leads to a further gate, which opens to the hard standing yard in front of the stable block. Between these 2 gates and found just before the stable block there is a area perfectly suited for parking a horse trailer. The upper gate has a track which leads slightly uphill to the back of the stable block where a porch and entrance door to the substantial first floor is located. Installed with electricity and lighting, again this area is ideal for a workshop or a further storage facility. Found beyond the stable block is a lean-to as well as further parking/storage area, which also could be turned into an area for a half-sized menage potentially. As mentioned previously, the grounds in total stretch to approximately 3 acres, with the large majority of the land set to the left of the house/front of the stable block as a large paddock, which is ideally suited for 2/3 horses. Set on a gradual decline, the field is well fenced and is bordered to the far left with a wooded area along with a stream, while located in the top corner is a feature pond. A thin parcel of ground does also continue to the rear of the stable block and joins up with the main paddock.

Below the main house, the large garaging space offers secure parking for at least 3 cars, as well as an additional storage area just off spanning to an impressive 17.3m in length as well as separate storage room to the rear of the garage 2, which could be used for a number of possibilities.
