About this property

  • The Elizabethan House is a detached Grade II listed property with red brick elevations under a steeply pitched tiled roof with central ridge stack featuring three ornamental flues. Originally dating from around 1700 the property was formerly a service range for the adjacent Shudy Camps Park house which is now The Hall and in separate ownership. Accessed over a private drive which serves the Hall and three other adjacent properties the Elizabethan House is tucked in behind the southern end of The Hall with a paved forecourt to the front accessed beneath a pergola. A classical pedimented porch with fluted pilasters and seats to either side leads to the front door.

    The house has accommodation arranged over two principle floors with an attic storey over extending in total to around2,493 sqft of floor area. On the ground floor there are three large rooms, all with tall ceilings - a dining hall in the centre with tall brick fireplace with a fitted stove and heavy timber bressummer, the kitchen has a range of Shaker style painted units with formica worksurfaces and a Lacanche LPG fired stove with five burners and two ovens. There is a 1 1/2 bowl stainless steel sink and space and plumbing for a dishwasher together with a freestanding oven and hob. The main sitting room to the far end of the ground floor has French doors leading out into the walled garden, an exposed curved red brick wall with open fireplace and raised hearth and heavy timber ceiling beams.

    At first floor level there is a wide and spacious sitting/ landing with former open fireplace and doors to an en suite bedroom on one side and at the other side a corridor with built in cupboards leads to the well fitted family bathroom with bath and separate shower and a further bedroom with views to the front. The top floor is accessed via a spiral staircase (which also leads back to ground floor level) and on this level there are two further bedrooms with distant views and a shower room.

    Within the title to the property is a shared section of driveway which passes the end of The Hall to the left and three properties to the right. A five bar gate to one end leads into a shingled parking area and the three bay pole barn open garage. A door in the rear leads into the walled garden which has tall red brick walling a small terrace and access to a further outbuilding with power and light laid on and a timber section beyond with window to the driveway. In addition there is a small portacabin type building in one corner which could be used for a variety of purposes or removed to clear space. Beyond the walled garden accessed by a further door (and a gate from the parking area) is a further area of garden laid to lawn with some shrubs and trees, the oil tank and the external oil fired central heating boiler and LPG gas bottles for the kitchen range. The remainder of the land is mainly woodland which borders open farmland and includes a fine Wellingtonia.

    In all about 0.75 of an acre.
