A delightful Grade II listed house with outdoor pool, in a country lane setting.
Dawkins House is a delightful Grade II listed house, understood to date from the 17th century or earlier and occupying a lovely rural country lane position, surrounded by over an acre of pretty gardens and grounds with outbuildings and heated outdoor swimming pool. This five bedroom property with its abundance of exposed timbers, beams and good ceiling heights to the majority of rooms, offers versatile accommodation of over 3,100 sq ft, set out over three floors.
The entrance hall boasts pretty inset stained glass windows and an old brick floor. From here two well proportioned main reception rooms are situated to either side, both with attractive fireplaces, one which benefits from a Vigilant wood burning stove and parquet flooring. Further reception rooms include a snug/garden room with French doors to the gardens and an adjacent study with bespoke fitted bookshelves and cupboards beneath.
The kitchen/breakfast room is a very good size, equipped with an extensive range of cupboards and space for various integral appliances. A rear hall leads through to a WC and utility room with space for white goods.
Located on the first floor are three bedrooms, all of which enjoy garden views, together with two bathrooms, one being en suite. The main bedroom is a particularly attractive room enjoying a dual aspect and having a dressing area with fitted cupboards. A staircase leads up to the attic floor where there are two further bedrooms, with vaulted ceilings and an en suite bathroom.
Dawkins House is approach via gates opening to a substantial drive with ample parking and two single garages.
The delightful established gardens provide a lovely setting with a long central path, flanked by rose beds and lawns leading up to the front door. The expansive lawns, under planted with spring flowers, stretch around to the rear of the house where there is a pond, beyond which lies neighbouring farmland.
There is a sunken terrace area, a heated outdoor swimming pool with electric cover, enclosed by picket fencing and a kitchen garden with raised beds and fruit cages. There are a number of outbuildings which are currently used as garden, log and implement stores.
