    About this property

    • The Elms is a Grade II listed Georgian village house constructed of mellow brick elevations under a slate roof. The house dates from 1730 with additions from the 18th and 19th centuries. The main portion of the house was enlarged in 1890 and the main elevation of the property has a classic Georgian façade with a central doorway with symmetrical windows on either side and bay windows.

      The house provides spacious family accommodation extending to over 4,800 sq ft, with gracious main reception and bedrooms of good proportions. The house has been in the same ownership since 1994, and whilst well maintained externally, would benefit from some updating internally. There are many period features including wood panelling, moulded cornices, open fireplaces, dado rails, picture rails and moulded ceilings. The accommodation is arranged over three floors.

      The main front door is off the road but for day-to-day access, there is a family entrance from the secure paved and gated courtyard parking area, through the garden and into the inner hall. The inner hall provides access to the main staircase hall and all principal ground floor rooms, including the dining room, drawing room, study and kitchen/breakfast room, with butler's pantry and a conservatory just off. The drawing room and dining room are of particular note, with bay windows, tall windows and beautiful period features. There is also a cloakroom with WC and stairs lead down to the cellar with games area and wine store.

      A door leads from the kitchen through to a suite of rooms to the side of the house that have been used as a separate annexe with its own access; the garden room, a kitchenette and bathroom.

      Upstairs, there are five bedrooms on the first floor with a bathroom and separate shower room. There are two bedrooms on the second floor with a bathroom; note this needs to be completely updated.

      The garden is enclosed to the road by a traditional wall, part red brick and cob, providing privacy and screening. Wrought iron gates give access to the surfaced courtyard which is surrounded by knapped flint brick with tiled canopy walls giving access to the Coach House and garden.

      The Coach House provides a large garage and a secondary smaller garage/store on the ground floor. Stairs lead up to the first floor annexe, with a living room, bedroom, kitchenette and shower room.

      There is a stunning Victorian conservatory, on brick foundations, which the owners have recently undertaken some repair work to. It houses a magnificent old vine and hothouse for raising plants. There is a further summer house/garden store with rendered elevations. The owners have created some beautiful grounds, with different garden ‘rooms', including terraces, an ornate pond, a kitchen garden, Box hedge parterre, lawns and garden walks.

    There is a lovely provenance to The Elms and this is a house that would suit families of different ages, with versatile accommodation throughout. Some of the traditional features are simply lovely and, with a bit of updating, the house will undoubtedly reward the new owners.
