Well-presented detached Victorian house with pretty gardens in a semi-rural position.
Believed to date from 1890, Oaklands is a classically Victorian detached village house; double fronted and attractively characterised by brick elevations with a red brick string course and window dressings. The property is very well presented throughout, combining both period features and modern fittings, including a number of working and feature fireplaces, wooden internal doors and recessed spot lighting.
There are three reception rooms accessed from the entrance hall; the dual-aspect sitting room has a woodburning stove, and there is a family/TV room with fitted shelving, and a dining room. The spacious kitchen has an electric range cooker with Shaker-style painted oak units and granite worktops, and is open to the breakfast room. There is an adjoining utility room with separate cloakroom.
On the first floor, the principal suite offers a large bedroom, a dressing area with fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room with walk-in shower.
There are two further bedrooms on the first floor, served by a luxury bathroom with free standing bath and a pair of basins.
The second floor is reached via a spiral staircase, and offers two bedrooms, a seating area and a shower room.
The pretty garden lies all around the house and is mainly laid to lawn, well enclosed by mature hedging and trees. There are a number of charming outdoor seating areas, including a raised, decked terrace with a pergola over in the south western corner of the garden, creating a lovely spot to enjoy the outside space. To the side of the house is a vegetable garden.
Lying to the north are two outbuildings: a timber shed and a detached brick outhouse, comprising two store rooms. There is planning permission to develop this section of the property to create a one bedroom annexe, which can be viewed online: WD/2020/0456/F. Permission is due to expire in July 2023. Beyond the brick outhouse is a gravelled parking area, providing off street parking for three vehicles.
In all, about 0.26 acres.
