About this property

  • This wonderful former pump house was converted by the current owners to create a unique residential dwelling set in a beautiful rural position with fantastic views over the surrounding countryside. Internally, the house retains a modern industrial/warehouse feel with a wealth of character features throughout.

    The property offers flexible family accommodation which is full of character. The fabulous double aspect open plan kitchen/living/dining room forms the heart of the house and provides spacious and unique accommodation with exposed reclaimed brick walls, polished concrete floor, exposed ceiling timbers and lintels, two large skylights and contemporary Crittall sliding doors to the front of the house.

    The living area has an attractive wood burner and the living/dining areas have full height windows enjoying views over the property's gardens and countryside beyond. The kitchen area has a Rangemaster cooker, base units with polished concrete worktops, and a stainless steel breakfast bar.

    Off the kitchen there is a useful utility room with a door to the front. There is also a bedroom on this level with fitted wardrobes and window to the front, as well as a ‘jack and jill' shower room. From the kitchen/living/dining area, metal steps lead down to an attractive sitting room with full height glass windows and doors opening out to the rear terrace and gardens. There is also a separate study as well as two bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room and beautiful views over the gardens.

    Outside, the house is approached via an electronically operated gated entrance over an initially shared driveway leading to the property's private driveway and parking area. The lovely park-like gardens enjoy fantastic views over the surrounding countryside. The Pump House has a private walled courtyard garden at the front and a paved terrace running the width of the house at the rear. In all the property extends to about 2.19 acres.
