About this property

  • Listed as being of Architectural or Historical Interest Grade II, Abbey View is believed to date from the 18th century, extended and altered in the 19th century, and is constructed of timber frame and brick with rendered elevations under a tiled roof. The period house is listed in conjunction with its adjoining neighbour, No 57. Externally there are rusticated quoins, dentilled cornice and all the windows have 19th century louvred external shutters, the rear gables having 19th century barge boards. The accommodation is laid out over three floors. A front door opens into a vestibule and reception/dining hall, panelled to dado height with a fireplace and shuttered sash windows in a wide bay. Set off the reception/dining hall is the sitting room, a lovely light room with high ceiling and fireplace and shuttered sash windows in a second bay. Steps lead up to the rear lobby, also part-panelled with a door into the garden, off which is a study and cloakroom. On the opposite side of the lobby is the kitchen/breakfast room with a walk-in shelved pantry/larder, well fitted with a range of wall and floor units incorporating a range, double butler sink, with space and plumbing for a dishwasher. Double doors open out onto the covered terrace.

    A staircase leads up to the main landing with book shelves along one wall and a walk-in airing cupboard. The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom with panelled bath, twin hand basins, bidet and w.c. There is a second bedroom and family bathroom and off the inner landing is a shower room and a third bedroom. A short staircase leads up to the two attic bedrooms.

    Abbey View is approached through an electric gate opening into a courtyard with parking for a number of cars. On two sides are a useful range of brick and slate outbuildings incorporating garaging, workshop, storage, a temperature controlled wine “cellar”, utility room and a garden shed with an outside w.c. to the rear and dog kennel. (The outbuildings had planning permission for conversion to a residential annexe in 2012 but it has since lapsed.) A gate from the courtyard leads to the rear of the house and part-covered terrace. Steps lead up to the delightful walled garden created by the owners over the last 14 years. It is laid to lawn with shrub borders, box hedges and with a large enclosed vegetable/fruit garden. Along part of the brick back wall to the rear is a greenhouse and adjoining machinery store with access to a compost area.
