An impressive family home with equestrian facilities, situated on the edge of Malpas village.
The Hollies is a substantial Arts and Crafts styled residence with high ceilings and large bay windows providing wonderful natural light throughout. The property is beautifully presented and well maintained, with the roof having been replaced in 2015.
The front entrance door opens into a large reception hall with impressive reception rooms on both sides, and stairs to the first floor.
The principal sitting room is an excellent size with two large bay windows and a log burning stove. The second reception room is well proportioned and has an open fireplace and glazed French internal doors into the garden room.
The garden room has full height windows to both sides and sliding doors out to the patio. An internal door leads through to the inner hall (also accessed from the principal sitting room) where there is a shower room.
The rear entrance boot room is timber framed and provides a very useful everyday access to the property and adjacent to this is the utility room.
The impressive kitchen features an Aga and a number of base and wall mounted units, with space for an American style fridge freezer and a dining table. French doors open to the rear driveway with the stables beyond.
On the first floor there are three large bedrooms (two of which have en suite facilities) and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom comprises a dressing room and separate en suite shower room. A covered balcony links these spaces and has glazed doors providing a wonderful place from which to take in the far-reaching views.
On the second floor there are two rooms adjoining a central landing. This level could easily be used as a large bedroom suite comprising a sitting room and its own en suite shower room.
The property is approached off the road through automatic wrought iron gates onto a gravelled drive to the front and side of the property. The parking area continues to the two double garage buildings and stables beyond, all of which are easily accessible from the rear of the house.
The property has wonderful well-kept gardens, mainly laid to lawn with a large variety of shrubs and hedges. Mature trees surround the property and a large patio area set under the trees creates a lovely area with a purpose-built traditional brick pizza oven.
For the equestrian enthusiast, there are three well-built timber stables set on a concrete floor and frontage courtyard area with post and rail and timber gate perimeter. The building has power and water connected and there is a tack room, purpose-built concrete muck clamp to the side, hot water shower and drainage provision for a yard toilet.
The paddocks are conveniently just off the stable yard and equate to approximately 2.63 acres in all.

On first visiting The Hollies I was so impressed by all it has to offer. A spacious, functional and lovely family home, with superb outside space and equestrian facilities. On top of all of this, its position within Malpas is fantastic!Charlie Kannreuther
