    About this property

    • The Dove House is a beautiful family house with origins believed to date back to c.1700 with more recent additions in the late 1900s. Once part of the wider Norman Court Estate owned by the late Mr Washington Singer, the property was described rather charmingly in an historic auction catalogue as "A Most Desirable Gabled Cottage Residence and Garden".

      Constructed of brick under a tiled roof, the property sits back from the village road within its generous grounds and established gardens of about 0.75 of an acre.

      There is an elegance and charm to the whole house, suited to family living and offering a flexible layout for different generations of family. The property is not listed and is suitable for various extensions subject to planning permission.

      A porch leads into the original part of the house, with a dual aspect dining room and the original staircase leading up to the first floor. A door links through to the large sitting room, lying at the heart of the house, with French doors out to a rear terrace and the back garden. The kitchen lies just off, with both an electric cooker and Aga, base and wall-mounted ‘shaker-style' units, a separate pantry and space for a family dining table. On the far side of the sitting room is the utility/boot room, with guest WC and door out to the rear parking area.

      A further door leads discreetly from the sitting room through to a rear lobby of a small ground floor studio annex, with a bedroom and adjoining bathroom and its own access to the rear parking area. At present the owners use this studio as a home office/study. The rear lobby is currently a study area but has previously been a kitchenette.

      The main staircase rises up from the sitting room to a landing, with the large principal bedroom suite opposite. There are three further good sized double bedrooms down the corridor, one with a beautifully appointed en suite bathroom. There is a family bathroom with shower and separate WC to serve the other two double bedrooms. To the rear, and with French doors leading out to the raised rear garden, the family room provides a flexible space for a growing family and has a Jotual log burner to one end.

      Outside
      The Dove House is centrally placed in the village with a very private garden and sits back from the road, with a gravel drive leading past the house to the double garage and parking area. Lawns and shrubs flank the driveway and provide a picturesque setting with a raised well to one side. A picket gate leads through to the rear garden, mostly laid to lawn, which rises gently up and away from the road, with some excellent specimen trees lining the boundaries including a lime tree, a tulip tree, a pin oak, a red oak, a variegated maple and silver birches, There are a number of well-positioned seating areas to take in the sun and the views from the top across the village are excellent. There is a former chicken run, a fruit cage, green house and some raised vegetable beds. In all the grounds extend to about 0.75 of an acre.

    One of the larger family homes in the village, I love the charm of the front of the house and it is deceptively large, sitting well within its beautiful garden.
