Welcome to The Brambles; a traditional dormer-style home with a modern and energy-efficient twist, located in the sought-after village of Oakley. The property is set back from Hill Road on a plot that measures approximately 0.3 acres. The property offers flexible accommodation that approaches 3,800 sq ft that could suit a multi-generational family, especially with the added benefits of an annexe and a detached double garage space with office space above that is complete with air conditioning and a WC.

The property welcomes you into a bright and airy entrance hall that provides access to; a downstairs cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin, a light and airy living/dining room with triple aspect windows and Double Width French Doors open onto the side patio and entertaining area. A Bespoke Media Unit is built into one wall. A STUV inset wood burning stove is fitted, which is designed for low energy houses and takes its air supply from under the floor so does not compromise the air tightness of the property. To the rear of the property is a high-specification Optiplan kitchen/living/dining area, which features an array of traditional shaker-style Oak units that are complimented with granite work surfaces. A central island provides an induction hob with an overhead extractor, which is ideal for show-cooking whilst entertaining guests who may be sat down at the lower level breakfast bar. A plumbed in American Fridge Freezer is also fitted. Double Width French Doors open onto the rear patio and entertaining area.

Conveniently located next to the kitchen is a utility room with matching storage units and work surfaces to the kitchen, with an Under Counter Freezer. A side door leads out to the garden. A powerful Electrolux Central Vacuum is also provided throughout the house so there are no clumsy vacuum cleaners to carry!
Oak Stairs from the entrance hall lead to a spacious first-floor landing, which provides central access to four large bedrooms and a family bathroom. It is worth noting that the master and main guest bedroom are served by en-suite bathrooms with four-piece suites, complete with Duravit Sanitary Ware, Vado Taps and Shower Controls, and super insulated Carron Baths. Energy-efficient electric towel rails are also provided. The master bedroom also benefits from a walk-in wardrobe. The attic to the house is boarded throughout, so is already a large space and is easily accessed by a Deluxe folding loft ladder. Doors throughout are oak veneered with many rooms having fire-rated units. Each room has interlinked mains powered (battery backup) smoke detection, the kitchen has heat detection and the wood-burning stove is provided with a carbon monoxide detector.

Accessed via its own door, The Brambles also has a self-contained annexe, which features a bedroom with a spacious wardrobe, shower room with WC and wash hand basin, living area, and a separate well-equipped kitchen. This useable space would be perfect for an elderly relative or growing teenager seeking their own space or could even be used as a source of income should someone be seeking an Air BnB opportunity. The annexe area has been designed so that the area could be converted into additional space for the main house if so desired.

The property is provided with LED Lighting throughout. A 4 Camera HIK Vision CCTV System is present which can be controlled and viewed via smartphone/tablet. Hardwiring for an alarm system is provided but has never been installed. High-quality speaker wiring is also provided throughout, with two rooms having ceiling-mounted speakers and Blue Sound Power Nodes offer online streaming music using a downloadable app.

A detached double garage has a pair of insulated, electrically powered, Garador sectional doors. The garage has a nonslip porcelain tiled floor and has an extensive number of power sockets. The plant room is accessed through a lobby behind the right-hand garage door and a staircase from this lobby provides access to the first-floor home office. This is heated through radiators but also features a floor-mounted inverter air-conditioning unit, which can also provide heat. The home office has its own WC and is fully networked with Cat 5 Sockets.

The landscaped gardens feature a variety of mature shrubs and trees. A timer and manifold system control the irrigation and sprinkler systems with the benefits of water from your own private water supply. A private borehole supplies the property with its domestic water and allows up to 20,000 litres to be abstracted each day, free of charge. The property sits behind recently installed Hardwood gates with Videx Security/Intercom that controls the electrically powered gates from anywhere in the world! A large wraparound sandstone patio provides numerous entertaining areas and there is an outdoor kitchen featuring a pizza oven and BBQ. The rear garden has mature shrubs and an established Beech screen and a large Ash Tree. The front of the property provides extensive parking and there are a number of column fruit trees providing apples, pears, figs, and plums.

The vendors have informed us that the property is an energy-efficient home built using the Kingspan TEK Building System. The external facades feature Michelmersh Bricks which are sourced locally from Romsey. The roof is finished with traditional Marley Eternity Clay Tiles. The windows and doors incorporate modern energy optimisation and are designed for use in low-energy or PassivHaus projects. Internally they use sustainably sourced timber from FSC®-certified forests and externally they have aluminium cladding. As an energy-efficient home a Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) is fitted. MVHR extracts stale air and supplies clean filtered air that is warmed using the recovered heat from the extracted air. This reduces energy needs but also helps to reduce the risk associated with dust such as allergies and asthma. The Genvex Energy series is a heat recovery ventilation system with an approximate heat recovery rate of 96%. The borehole is also used to heat the house via a 10kw Vaillant Ground Source Heat Pump which is located in the external plant room. The heating system and hot water is fed into the house through underground, super-insulated pipe work, making the house both energy efficient and incredibly quiet. This is fitted with a Water Softener, Turbidex and UV Filter. The property benefits from Full Fibre to the Property which is provided by Virgin Media. This can provide up to 1130mb/s if required. Currently on a 254mb/s package. Cat 5 data cabling goes to all rooms.
