A rare opportunity to acquire a landmark period residence overlooking Downley Common set in beautiful gardens.
St. Davids offers a rare opportunity to acquire a landmark house, located in a semi-rural location and directly overlooking Downley Common. The property is Grade II Listed and understood to originally date back to 1699. This quintessential brick and flint cottage, set in delightful gardens, is a unique home, full of character and offers scope for modernisation, subject to the necessary planning consents. Period features include flagstone flooring, stained glass windows, exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces.
The front door opens into the reception porch with flagstone flooring and three beautiful stained glass windows. The flagstones continue into the dining room with wall panelling and a large inglenook fireplace with stove. A dual aspect sitting room with wall and ceiling beams and lovely views over the garden also enjoys an inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. The galley kitchen is fitted with a range of units, complemented by wooden worktops. There is a seated area at the end of the kitchen, with additional fitted storage cupboards, and steps leading up to a large games room/family area with a cloakroom and large windows overlooking the garden. A utility room, with access through to a workshop, completes the accommodation on the ground floor.
On the first floor is a family bathroom and three bedrooms all with beautiful views, one with an en suite bathroom and one with a dressing room/walk in cupboard. On the second floor are two further bedrooms, both wood panelled and with eaves storage.
St. Davids is approached off a quiet lane through a garden gate and a path to the front door. A five bar gate gives access to a parking area and the stable outbuildings. The delightful gardens envelope the house with large areas of lawn and raised flower beds with brick pathways and a grapevine pergola. There are various specimen trees, notably a fine Bay tree outside the front door, with mature trees and hedging providing a good deal of privacy.
Mains water and electricity. Oil fired central heating. Private drainage. Please note that none of the services have been tested.
