A Fabulous Family Home: The Bromstone

The Bromstone – a fabulous family detached home, more than meets the needs of a busy modern family, providing plenty of flexible living space, four well-proportioned bedrooms and a large rear garden.

House-hunters can peek inside the elegant Bromstone showhome at The Hawthorns, in the charming Chilterns village of Stoke Mandeville, priced at £550,000.

It has a fantastically versatile layout.

On the ground floor, there are two reception rooms. The family room to the front of the property could easily double as a study, a playroom or a den for teens, while a more formal living room to the rear of the house leads out onto the lawned garden.

The open-plan kitchen/dining room, the hub of the home, provides a spacious and relaxed family setting which also leads out to the garden – ideal for larger social gatherings in the warmer months.

There is also a cloakroom on the ground floor, and a storage cupboard by the front door for day-to-day clutter such as coats and schoolbags. A cleverly-designed alcove is a great space for a hall table; useful for dropping keys and mail.

Upstairs, four double bedrooms – all a good size – are served by a family bathroom, and the main bedroom suite includes a large ensuite shower room.

At the showhome, the bedrooms are elegantly styled; this is a home which is both stylish and practical. We especially love the fabulous Roald Dahl theme children’s bedroom, ideal for budding bookworms!

Outside, an adjoining carport and driveway provide space for two cars; the covered space is also useful for storing outdoor items such as bikes or garden tools.

With The Hawthorns situated on the edge of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, families will have access to no shortage of walking and cycling routes in the area.
