About this property

  • Holly House is a delightful detached house of oak and timber framed construction with rendered elevations beneath a peg tiled roof. The property has the benefit of a weather boarded and pantiled self-contained annexe behind and incorporating part of the former garage.

    This is a well-presented family home with large rooms, oak timbers, vaulted ceilings and both tiled and wooden floors, with underfloor heating to all of the ground floor. The hall, with cloakroom, leads via double doors to the family kitchen / dining room with turning stairs to the first floor and French doors to the garden.

    The exceptional recently refitted “Neptune” kitchen includes a central island incorporating a breakfast bar, quartz worktops, and a good range of Shaker style hand-painted cabinetry with fitted Siemens appliances including fridge, freezer, microwave-oven, dishwasher and wine fridge. There is also a double butler sink with “Quooker” boiling water tap and Rangemaster Elan double electric ovens with six ring induction hob.

    There is a well-proportioned sitting room with two sets of French doors to the rear, and a central fireplace with bressummer and log effect gas fired burner. The ceiling has attractive mellow exposed timbers with chamfered edges.

    The remaining ground floor accommodation comprises a study area with fitted oak desk and built-in bookcases, utility room, and storage area beyond. The storage area is part of the former garage, it is currently utilized as a home gym and provides a link between the main house and the annexe if desired.

    On the first floor are two bedrooms with en suite shower rooms, the principal bedroom having two sets of built-in wardrobes, eaves storage and a wide double sized shower cubicle. There are two further bedrooms with dormer windows and a family bathroom with free standing bath.

    The annexe has independent access via a side door as well as French doors into the garden. It features an open-plan kitchen / living area with vaulted ceiling, separate bedroom and en suite shower room. Both the annexe kitchen and shower room were recently refitted in 2018.

    The gardens are a delightful feature of the house – to the front is a wide shingle drive with considerable parking space and a number of established trees; the rear garden has been recently landscaped and features a deep terrace running the width of the house together with espaliered trees, brick-edged shrub and herbaceous borders, and low maintenance artificial grass lawn.

Although it is relatively recently built this lovely house achieves a rare combination of period charm from the oak timber framing with all the convenience of being modern - it has a wonderful recently fitted Neptune kitchen and a handy separate annexe too - all within a short walk to local shops...
