Bringing the outside in on Monkhams Estate Woodford

There is currently a rare opportunity to acquire a spacious 5 bedroom detached house on the ever-popular Monkhams Estate. Not only does the house offer an enviable 2263 sq.ft. of striking period accommodation inside, and there is plenty of room outside too. Externally, at the front of the property there is off-street parking which is always useful and a single garage. The landscaped rear garden is approximately 85ft long overlooked by plenty of windows, a delightful garden room and a balcony.
Properly enjoying the garden all year round by being outside really isn’t an option in the UK but, with clever design ideas like a garden room and a balcony, your immediate surroundings really can feel integral to the interior of the property.
This Woodford house has plenty of windows across front and back capturing the best views from the inside of the outside and drawing in lots of light. Even a more urban house can benefit from brilliant views by directing the eye to the outside with interesting windows.
One of the best ways to blur the lines between outside and inside is by providing a transitional space like a sun room or a conservatory. This Woodford house has a garden room that makes you feel as if you are still sitting in the garden when you are inside. It softens the threshold as they say between the house and garden and is just a few steps to the lawn and the garden beyond.
It also has a balcony which offers another space open to the elements from which to enjoy the garden but that is also more of a continuation of the house. If you want to see for yourself how much of the outside is brought into this delightful family house call us for a viewing appointment.
