Local information

  • Believed to date from around 1860, Woodknoll House is a fine detached Victorian mansion house, with classic red brick elevations under a tiled and gabled roof. The property has been beautifully renovated and offers stylish accommodation with a wealth of period details including high ceilings with decorative plasterwork, sash windows and graceful feature fireplaces.
  • The accommodation is arranged over two floors, plus a cellar. The floor plans give an excellent overview and should be used as a reference for the full extent of the layout. The house offers a pleasing layout which is ideally suited to modern family life, with two spacious reception rooms (currently used as a sitting room and a separate TV/family room) complemented by a reception hall, a study and a boot room with adjoining cloakroom.
  • Worthy of particular note is the kitchen, which is very well-equipped with painted bespoke wood cabinets, white surfaces, a central island with breakfast bar and a six ring gas fired range cooker, and is served by the utility room which has space for the usual appliances as well as offering plenty of storage. The kitchen is open to the dining room, which has fitted seating and doors to the terrace. The terrace offers a wonderful outlook across the garden and features a pergola fitted with lights and heaters, creating a fantastic space for entertaining.
  • The main staircase leads up to the galleried landing, and the principal bedroom suite. This comprises a bedroom, a dressing room with an excellent range of fitted wardrobes, and a modern shower room with walk in shower. The shower room can also be accessed from bedroom four, which also has fitted wardrobes and could serve as a second dressing room if required.
  • There are three further bedrooms, a stylish bathroom with a walk-in shower and free standing roll-top, claw foot bath, and separate WC on the first floor; a secondary staircase leads down to the kitchen.
