Enchanting and striking Grade II Listed home.
The Crofter Close, a Grade II listed eclectic mix of old and new with its contemporary additions, seamlessly marries the charm of its history with modern 21st century living aspirations. The attention to detail and preservation of period features ensure that this classic country property, with its modern architectural additions, presents an interesting and welcoming home.
The delightful entrance hall with its stone floor and wood burning stove is at the heart of the house. It opens directly to the integral bespoke kitchen and stunning fully glazed garden room, with its bi-fold doors opening directly to a covered terrace and garden beyond, making for easy family living and entertaining.
The charming sitting room and the family room/study also lead off the hall, both with wood burning stoves and solid oak flooring. The sitting room, with its two window-doors onto the garden and exposed original beams, also has the main solid oak staircase leading to the first floor. The family room beyond has a different feel with its higher ceiling and large sash windows.
A second staircase is elm and is off the entrance hall leading to the principal bedroom suite with a charming dual aspect bedroom and deep wardrobe. The luxurious split-level bathroom with its impressive Hans Grohe rain shower, marble stone-tiled walls and French style large hand basin has the option to open to the main landing. The laundry cupboard also houses plumbing for a washing machine.
Two further bedrooms are found to the first floor, one with a full range of fitted wardrobes and lovely views over the garden. The large contemporary family bathroom has recently been fitted with a large walk-in shower, separate bath, double vanity unit and Carrera marble tiles and surrounds.
Off the kitchen is a later wing with a large utility room/ ancillary kitchen. A ground floor WC and shower room and a playroom/study/snug lead off from here as does a staircase opening to two further bedrooms and a shower room. This part of the house lends itself easily for use as a self-contained annexe should the need arise. A door from the utility room opens to a courtyard with access directly to the lane. A timber outbuilding houses the boiler, pressurised hot water tank and water softener.
From the lane, the property is approached via large wooden gates which open to an ample gravelled drive. Award winning Carpenter Oak have recently built an open double bay garage and storage, only adding to the charm of the third of an acre garden. There are also two large timber storage sheds. With its stone wall boundary, mature planting, beech, oak and fruit trees as well as vegetable and cut flower beds, the garden is enchanting. The original Crofters stone staircase is still in situ on the outside of the original part of the house.
