A handsome Arts and Crafts family providing beautifully presented accommodation throughout, set within 10 acres of glorious grounds and paddocks.
A handsome Arts and Crafts family home dating back to 1928 which has been extensively renovated and remodelled whilst sympathetically retaining the original look and feel of the house through careful restoration and inclusion of many original features.
The property provides generous accommodation arranged over two well-planned floors with attractive views over the grounds and gardens available from every room. The living accommodation is arranged around a traditional entrance and includes a dual aspect formal living room with feature fireplace and inset wood burning stove, a further reception currently used as a home office/study and a formal dining room accessed from the kitchen. Located in the heart of the house, the kitchen/breakfast room as been comprehensively redesigned with a large central island, matching work surfaces and a useful pantry cupboard. Sliding doors open out from the kitchen to a lovely covered terrace and seating area, ideal for outside dining. Adjacent to the kitchen is a further internal hallway leading to a good size utility room and ground floor shower room. Accessed from here is a further reception area currently used as a home gym with stairs leading up to a games room above the double garage.
On the first floor there are four comfortable double bedrooms, all with outstanding views, served by a remodelled and well-appointed family bath and shower room.
The property has potential to further enlarge if required, with planning permission having previously been granted, planning ref: CH/2011/0379/FA - CH/2014/2167/FA.
A real feature of the property is the wonderful semi-rural setting. Positioned well within its grounds the property enjoys glorious formal gardens of 2.75 acres which have been extensively and thoughtfully landscaped for ease of maintenance and whilst mainly laid to lawn, are interspersed with well stocked beds, specimen trees and garden features. There is also an abundance of seating areas, patios and terraces from which to enjoy both the surrounding countryside and the gardens themselves. The property is surrounded by a further 7 acres of paddocks, themselves backing onto woodland.
