About this property

  • Mulberry is a very impressive late Victorian house, restored over the last eleven years to provide up-to-date and well presented family accommodation. This combines with the benefit of an additional detached two bedroom cottage, with its own separate title and ideal for parents, nanny or staff, to provide investment income, or even to sell off at some point.

    The sense of space and scale can be felt straight away and this lovely home feels very comfortable. The front door opens into a fine reception hall with stairs, a wood burning stove and library shelving and there are a number of special rooms to admire whilst walking around.

    These include the formal drawing room and dining room, with their grand proportions and fireplaces, but also the large conservatory, accessed off the drawing room. Finally, the amazing top floor studio room, which is so unlike expected attic space, benefits from space and good light, overlooking the garden bellow and enjoying stunning distant views. Lots of period features have been retained throughout and the bespoke kitchen is imaginatively designed and well-equipped. Most of the bedrooms have bathrooms or shower rooms, individually thought through and nicely finished.

    Outside, the rear garden is a further delight, being part-walled on one side and laid out in defined areas and landscaped with terracing and lawn, a wild flower meadow and a formal planted garden, with the vegetable garden and working areas beyond this screened-off by trellising.

    Mature trees, plants and rhododendrons mark the borders, with interspersed feature trees, including a fine Ginko biloba and magnolia, adding nicely to the overall picture. Even the small cottage courtyard garden is a delight too, with its mature, large fig tree forming the key focus.

For me, this is perhaps the perfect village house; close to the centre, with high ceilings and generous proportions, complete with all the right rooms and tastefully presented throughout. Also, there is good parking, lovely views, a beautiful landscaped garden and a detached two bedroom cottage as well. Really hard to fault.
