An imposing period village house
Templemount is a handsome, beautifully presented family home set in a delightful private plot. Originally constructed in 1901 before being sympathetically extended by the current owners this home retains many beautiful ornate features of the late Victorian and early Edwardian period with high ceilings, large well-proportioned rooms and Victorian windows.
The house is entered through a stone porch into a substantial dining hall with high ornate cornicing and a large bay window, filling the room with light. Leading on from the dining hall through double doors is an elegant dual aspect drawing room with a bay window and traditional open fireplace with a gas fire. There is a large kitchen with a series of integrated appliances, wall and base units and an AGA oven and access to the terrace, perfect for alfresco dining in the summer. Off the kitchen is a well-equipped utility room as well as a spacious, well-proportioned study. The ground floor is completed by a south facing triple aspect sitting room with an open fireplace and access to the garden via French doors.
To the first floor there are 5 bedrooms all with high ceilings filled with natural light. There is a superb principal bedroom with a large bay window, and four piece en suite bathroom. There are a further two large double aspect bedrooms with ensuite shower rooms featuring bay windows. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Bedroom 2 and 4 have feature fireplaces.
The house is accessed via a gravel driveway allowing ample off-street parking. To the left there is a garage with a workshop and log store.
