    About this property

    • Woodstone Cottage is a detached period property which sits in an enclosed courtyard setting with extensive parking and garaging. The house is C Listed and combines ornate traditional features with a stylish contemporary interior. The spacious accommodation provides flexible family living space of approximately 4,000 square feet. The garages/outbuildings offer potential for further development (subject to planning).

      Thought to date from around 1820, Woodstone has been beautifully refurbished and is arranged over two levels. The ground floor accommodation begins with the main reception hallway to the drawing room which has a bay window overlooking the garden. There is also a sitting room with access to the ground floor bedroom with en suite. The dining room overlooks the courtyard and leads through to the fabulous family room/kitchen which has a white painted beamed ceiling and a wonderfully light and airy feel. Fully fitted with modern floor and wall units, integrated appliances and a breakfast bar, there is also space for a table and relaxed family area with windows to the front. Off the kitchen is an inner hallway with a door out to the courtyard and parking area. This forms a convenient everyday entrance. Also in this part of the house is a useful utility room.

      There are two stairways leading to the first floor. From the main hallway the stairway gives access to three bedrooms and the study plus family bathroom. The inner hallway leads to the principal bedroom suite with feature stone wall, freestanding copper slipper bath in the bedroom, en suite shower room and dressing area. The dressing area leads to the upper landing with staircase to the ground floor. The upper landing is cleverly used as a home office with Parisian balcony overlooking the courtyard. The games room and WC complete the accommodation on this level.

      There are several outbuildings, including three separate garages, a home gym and store cupboard. At the rear is a paved patio area with surrounding wall; a gate leads to the side and rear which is mainly lawn with mature trees. There is also a driveway to the side of the property. Further parking is available to the side and the courtyard area.
