About this property

  • Proudly sitting at the highest point within the plot, Danesacre is an enchanting home of great stature and history surrounded by mature trees, shrubs and highly attractive gardens. Upon entering one is struck by the period features including the high ceilings and large windows that flood the ground floor with natural light. Whilst the property would benefit from a course of renovation and refurbishment, it is clear it has been a well loved family home and could be restored to its former glory with some decorative thought.

    There is generous ground floor accommodation which comprises three reception rooms, with a particular highlight being the south facing drawing room enjoying views over the garden with its attractive climbers including Wisteria, Clematis and Passion Flower covered seating area and fish-filled pond with a view over the rockery, rosebeds and lawns. The kitchen is well proportioned and could be extended further to incorporate the freezer-room, workshop and garage to create a wonderful and open kitchen/dining/family space. The dining room, sitting room and a downstairs WC completes the ground floor.

    Upstairs there are five bedrooms offering plenty of space for family life and guest accommodation. The passageways are wide and well lit and have floor to ceiling hanging wardrobes and storage cupboards. There is further scope for extensive expansion due to the substantial, well insulated loft space. Currently it is accessed by a folding ladder and in its recent past been a fantastic hobby space and even a teen bedroom. This second floor offers further versatility and would be an ideal teenage den or (subject to planning) house a further two or three bedrooms and a bathroom should one undertake a full conversion.

    The lie of the land allows access from the garden to the lower ground floor which contains the plant room, with new boiler and hot water storage tank and a further storage room. This room has a view from its window over summer roses and gives ideal space to work at home or as a hobby/craft room.

    To the front of the property there is an area to park many vehicles, a double garage and a sweeping driveway to the Worthy Road. The main aspect of the property is particularly appealing due to the southerly outlook. There are attractive flower borders, a well filled rockery and rose beds and an expansive area of formal lawns surrounded by mature trees that create privacy. It is here that it becomes clear that (subject to planning) there may be potential to either extend the existing property or redevelop the plot as a whole building
    with additional dwellings. We would advise taking professional advice should this be an avenue you wish to explore.
