Impressive traditional family house in nearly 0.6 acre
This impressive 1920's built traditional family house stands within extensive gardens of 0.6 acre and provides the perfect opportunity to update to one's own taste and style whilst retaining the glorious design cues and room proportions of the period.
This has been a much loved family home for 35 years and has undergone many improvements over that period including installing a Smallbone kitchen and a conservatory, a dressing room and en suite to the principal suite along with a good level of upkeep and maintenance. Many of the design features of the original house have been retained and the original garage was converted to create a panelled home office with an external door; perfect for visitors not wishing to disturb the main house or as a family snug or library away from the main reception rooms.
The grounds have been carefully landscaped to include water features with a larger pond, a carp pond, mature screening shrubs and specimen trees, a perfect lawn for marquees and wide terraces for entertaining. The current owner had an interest in birds and created aviaries to the boundaries which provide alternative uses for garden storage.
The impressive gated driveway has electronic gates with substantial stone gate posts, a dwarf wall with railings and the property stands behind a generous parking and turning area flanked by a lawn to the front and bordered by mature trees and a deep verge to the lane.
The recessed entrance has double doors opening into a generous hall with oak flooring, a traditional oak staircase with oak panelling, individually oak carved doors open to the principal reception rooms off.
The drawing room has oak flooring, a triple aspect and French doors to the rear terrace, a Minster stone fireplace with a stone hearth and a real fire with a Baxi grate in a deep recess with an oak surround. Picture rails with a frieze above and coving add grace to this splendid room.
The dining room lies on the far side of the hall and also has a stone Minster fireplace with an attractive period tiled inner and real fire.
The breakfast kitchen lies to the rear and features limestone flooring, granite surfaces and the Smallbone cupboards complement the retained original range of cupboards. A range of integral appliances are fitted and there is a large walk-in pantry.
A side hall has an outside door and double doors to large conservatory with a tiled floor and double doors to the gardens. The side hall has a cloakroom with WC and a utility room, a cloaks area with cupboards gives internal access to the snug or office with a bay to the front, an outside door and wonderful oak panelling to wainscot height with matching oak library shelving.
The first floor landing leads to the five double bedrooms including the principal suite with its bay window and dressing room with fitted wardrobes leading through to the en suite bathroom with a separate bath and shower. The remaining bedroom include wash hand basins to two, fitted wardrobes to three and a bay window to the front to the second bedroom. These are served by a house bathroom with an over bath shower and a separate WC.
There are two greenhouses, one of which is very dilapidated, in a vegetable area' of the garden with soft fruit and a large timber store. There are two further former aviaries/sheds on the boundary behind shrubbery borders with a small wooded area. A summer house enjoys a south westerly aspect along with the rear gardens and a paved terrace extends across the entire back of the house with a loggia area.
