A substantial late Victorian house for renovation on a plot of about 0.64 acre.
The accommodation extends to approximately 2,425 sq ft with the principal reception rooms and bedrooms overlooking the village green. A central hallway includes a fine original staircase and provides access to the sitting room and living room at the front of the house, both with high ceilings and fireplaces. At the rear is a large separate dining room overlooking the gardens and adjoining is the kitchen/breakfast room and back hall with access out to the entrance drive. The first floor has five bedrooms and two bathrooms, one en suite. The property is double-glazed throughout.
The drive passes through the walled front gardens into a substantial parking area with access to a storage/car barn. The front gardens have been symmetrically designed to complement the elevations of the house with a central pathway, and flower/shrub beds providing all-year colour and interest. The rear gardens have a paved terrace adjoining a large area of lawn. A winding brick path separates a log store and a timber shed and beyond is a traditional greenhouse, worthy of restoration. Raised beds and a high red-brick wall separate a further area of secluded gardens extending to a quarter of an acre. A central pathway aligned with fruit trees and bordered by former vegetable gardens leads to the back lawns and a lovely old wall incorporating a loggia. The substantial gardens offer the potential for a swimming pool or tennis court, subject to obtaining the necessary consents

I was immediately taken with the beautiful façade and could not wait to see inside. The light-filled rooms, high ceilings and period features added to its appeal. Untouched for many years, I know there is the foundation for the new custodian to put their stamp on this wonderful period home.Stephen White
