About this property

  • The Property
    Anchor Wood is an exceptional opportunity to create a home that will be amongst the very best in the village. Nestled in about five acres of undulating gardens and charming bluebell woods, the house enjoys an elevated position on the edge of the village, yet within easy reach of the river and amenities.

    Constructed in the late 1970's to an architects design, the house has over 3000 square feet of living space divided over two floors, with the principal rooms all enjoying lovely views over the surrounding gardens and woodland. The design made sure the property optimised the imposing south facing position, with plenty of large windows and glazed sliding doors to allow in as much light as possible and connecting the house with the outside. The house was ahead of its time, with open plan living to the main living space incorporating an entrance hall area, kitchen and living room. The sitting room works particularly well, with dual aspect and fireplace. At the opposite end of the house is a substantial room, latterly used as a bedroom but which could be utilised in many ways given the space of 7.2m x 6.8m. The house, in general, has an adaptable layout that could be rearranged if required.

    The bedrooms are spread over two floors. On the first floor are three/four bedrooms, with an en suite bedroom and a family bathroom. On the second floor are two spacious bedrooms, with a bedroom at the front of the house measuring 6.5m x 5.9m with a great view of the grounds and a dressing area. The second floor has a bathroom and some eaves storage.

    The house has been well maintained, but would now benefit from updating.

    Gardens and Grounds
    The house is approached onto a tarmac driveway, through brick piers, with a large parking and turning area that adjoins the double garage. These have up and over doors, with a fantastic space internally of 5.9m x 5.6m.

    Steps lead up to the house, with beds of heather and shrubs either side, leading to a terraced area running along the southern aspect of the house. This area provides a wonderful location for outside dining or entertaining, with an ornamental pond. A solid path continues around the house, leading round to the rear where there is a storage area and to the outbuildings. These comprise two solid built sheds with very useful storage, particularly for kayaks and paddle boards to enjoy on the river.

    A large expanse of lawn sweeps away from the house to the south, with banks of shrubs and heather to the east, and mature trees on the boundary. An outstanding feature of the property is the woodland, with a mixture of fine native trees including beech and oak, with spring bulbs providing carpets of bluebells and snowdrops, and with pathways meandering through to fully enjoy. You really do not feel as if you on the edge of such a vibrant village.
