    About this property

    • Bury Knowle was built in the 1930s on the site of two quarrymen's cottages. A large air-raid shelter at the back of the house was built during World War II and was later used as a coal store. The shelter was demolished in 1988/1989 when the house was extended and updated. The extension added the homework room on the ground floor, bedroom 2 and the shower room on the first floor, and stairs to bedroom 5 and the attic. The house is on the market for the first time in 40 years.

      In the middle of the house is the large sitting room that overlooks the front. To one side is the study with a separate access to the rear hall. On the opposite side is the dining room, that leads through to the kitchen. From the kitchen you can also directly access the sitting room and rear hallway. Off the kitchen there is a utility room / conservatory with back door. Completing the ground floor is a family room and the cloakroom.

      Stairs lead to the first floor where there are four bedrooms. The principal bedroom enjoys double windows overlooking the front. There are three further double bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room. On the second floor, there is a further bedroom and large loft that offers the possibility to be converted further.

      Outside: The garden extends to approximately 0.75 of an acre. There is a detached double garage and parking for several cars. The boundaries are established with fences and mature trees and hedges, giving great privacy.

      The lower garden at the front and side of the house has a variety of trees, shrubs and herbaceous border plants, and the steep chalk quarry bank is a haven for wildlife. Steps and slopes lead up to the top garden, from where there are views across farmland to the distant woods. The wild flower meadow has established fruit trees and a fenced area with soft fruit and vegetables.

      There is an underground concrete-lined rainwater tank (6ft in diameter x 9ft deep) which takes all the runoff from the roof. It is located near the back door to the kitchen. It is used for watering the garden. Runoff from the garage roof goes into two water butts which supply a pond at the end of the property. At the top of the garden there is a potting shed.
