About this property

  • Quelfurlong is a substantial family house which sits centrally in its grounds of about an acre. A house of good proportions it provides versatile accommodation over three floors which is perfect for family living. The present owners have made significant changes although there is still scope to make further improvements. The high ceilings and large windows give a wonderful feeling of space and allow plenty of natural light to flood the house. The double glazed windows are complemented by partial under floor heating and radiators.

    The part glazed front door opens into an impressive hall which extends the full depth of the house. The symmetrical layout affords two excellent reception rooms to the front, both being dual aspect and a having stone fireplace. Virtually opposite the kitchen/breakfast room (with Aga) is the dining room, again with a stone fireplace. Also on the ground floor is an office, walk-in pantry, utility room and a cloakroom. A side door leads from a parking area into a boot/coats space which extends into the main hall.

    An elegant staircase rises to the first floor where there is a light and spacious landing with views out to the front and onto open countryside. On this floor there are four bedrooms although a fifth has been sacrificed to provide an en suite dressing room, potentially a further bathroom. There are also three bath/shower rooms, two being en suite. On the second floor there are two further double bedrooms and an en suite bathroom.

    The property is approached through an automated gateway with a short drive extending to either side of the house. On one side is the garaging with workshop and space for four cars. A further former garage is situated on the opposite side and is now used as a party barn. In addition there is a stone built garden store. The part walled garden is a ‘blank canvas' which will enable the purchaser to create a garden to their own design and layout.

    About 0.8 acres.

I could not fail to be impressed by the amount of space the house has to offer, a genuine family home.
