About this property

  • The Lane House is a beautifully-presented detached family house enjoying a delightful tucked-away position within mature grounds at the end of a long private drive, shared with just one other property.

    The light and spacious accommodation comprises a recently completed open plan kitchen/breakfast/dining room, designed to make the most of the lovely setting, three reception rooms, a study and six well-proportioned bedrooms.

    The generously-proportioned and adaptable living space has good ceiling heights, contemporary fixtures and fittings, newly-installed carpets and under floor heating. The property has Karndean flooring in the kitchen/breakfast/dining room.

    The character features in the oldest part, which is believed to date back to the 1800s, include some aged beams, timbers and pretty fireplaces.

    The dual-aspect sitting room opens out to the garden and there is a good-sized study to the front. The striking newly-installed kitchen/breakfast room has large bi-fold doors which lead out to the garden and is open plan to a 26' x 14'5” dining room, creating superb family space which links through to the family room.

    The kitchen is fitted with Neff appliances including twin electric ovens, a large ceramic hob, a dishwasher and a Bosch American-style fridge/freezer and there is a separate fitted utility room with a cloakroom off.

    The master bedroom includes an en suite shower room and there are a further five double bedrooms, all enjoying an attractive outlook. Two well-appointed bathrooms complete the accommodation.

    Gardens and grounds:
    The gardens are a superb environment for children and animals, extending to about 1.29 acres to the rear of the house with lawns, well-stocked herbaceous borders and swathes of rhododendrons and azaleas. A wild area to the side and many mature trees and shrubs create a lovely backdrop for the property.

    A timber lodge with storage space and a separate studio (in need of some repair) offer useful additional space away from the house.

    A detached double garage lies to the side of the property in addition to an area across the front, with space to park up to three cars.

    Agent's Note: The Lane House has a right of way over the private driveway which also serves Kiln Cottage next door.
