A fabulously appointed south facing house with 1930s origins, within extensive and private gardens, with tennis court and farmland views, of just over an acre
Dating from 1932 and is offered for sale for the first time in almost 40 years, this extended, reconfigured and spacious modern house has a lovely flow and feel, with wonderful views of, and over, the gardens and village to farmland.
The entrance porch and hallway access the two formal reception rooms and the full-width family dining kitchen, which line the south face of the entire house, with French doors from the drawing room and kitchen to the garden terrace. A utility, cloakroom and fitted office suite are also accessed from the kitchen.
The first floor bedrooms are all large, well-proportioned doubles, accessed from a generous study/landing corridor. The principal bedroom suite incorporates a dressing room and full suite en suite bathroom. A modern wet room is conveniently placed for bedrooms three, four and five, whilst the full-suite family bathroom is alongside bedroom two. Bedrooms two and three both have fitted wardrobes.
The gardens are a delight and extend to about 1.1 acres. With sweeping lawns that lead past mature trees to the tennis court and orchard at the southern end of the garden, a woodland spinney and kitchen gardens adjoin the house to east and west. Perfectly oriented for tracking sunshine, with a high degree of privacy, the gardens incorporate a summer house/workroom, with electricity, as well as a WWII air raid shelter, beneath a large rockery bed.

I love this house. It feels rural with its amazing gardens, farmland views and privacy, and yet it is within a great village, with an active community, The Horseshoe public house, a personal favourite, and lovely rural and woodland walks, with Toft Golf Club just over a mile away.James AbbottProperty agent
