About this property

  • The Beeches is a fine Victorian house found in the heart of this popular village. The house is set back from the High Street and is afforded privacy by the mature Beech trees.

    The property is approached through a stone pillared gateway with a circular driveway providing gravelled parking to the front of the double garage. To the rear of the house is a mainly lawned walled garden which is interspersed with a variety of fruit trees including apple and pear. Adjacent to the kitchen is a paved sitting out area.

    The house provides well balanced accommodation with an elegant central hallway. To one side is the drawing room with a fine Cotswold Stone fireplace and a large stone mullion bay window. On the opposite side of the hall is a study with a pretty corner fireplace. A sitting/dining room opens into the kitchen/breakfast room which is well fitted and has direct access to the garden. To the side is the shower room, utility room and cloak/boot room. On the first floor there are four bedrooms (three being double) together with a family bathroom.

    A very useful planning permission exists which enables the garage space to be converted into further accommodation. This could then provide for additional family room or games room. The link to the extension could easily be provided via the existing sitting/dining room. At the same time the kitchen could be enlarged so as to provide a sitting area off which would be a new utility and cloakroom. The conversion would also allow the master bedroom, in the original part of the house, to be turned into a master suite, comprising of en-suite and dressing room. These improvements would certainly create a most comfortable family home. In any event the plans give
    a great deal of flexibility as to how the new space may
    be used. (draft plans available on request)

    There is planning permission to demolish the existing garage and replace with an extension. Also, an extension to the side elevation and alterations to rear doors and windows. Application reference 17/05174/FUL
