An attractive period property offering enormous potential.
The Chestnuts is an attractive period property in need of refurbishment and updating with accommodation flowing over three floors offering enormous potential to be a wonderful family home.
Located in a charming village surrounded by its own gardens, the property benefits from a substantial outbuilding, currently used as a workshop which could be converted to secondary accommodation, subject to the correct planning permissions.
The front door opens to a spacious entrance hall with tiled flooring and from where the elegant, principal staircase rises to the first floor. To the left is the drawing room with a bay window overlooking the lawn. The dining room has dual sash windows and an open fireplace.
Opposite the front door is the study and a hall leading to the farmhouse style kitchen with tiled flooring, an Aga, a walk in pantry, breakfast area and access to outside.
To the first floor are five bedrooms and two family bathrooms.
The second floor comprises three bedrooms, two currently used as storage rooms and a box room. These are accessed by two separate staircases.
The Chestnuts is entered via a private, gravel driveway which sweeps across the front of the house to a separate exit.
There is an attractive, partially walled lawn to the front with a well-established, herbaceous border. The remainder of the gardens are mainly laid to lawn which sweep around the side and to the back of the property with walled and hedge borders providing privacy. The gardens are peppered with a number of mature trees as well as an established orchard with a selection of fruit trees.
The property benefits from a substantial, traditional built building extending to just under 1500 square feet which could, subject to the correct planning permissions, be converted to a separate dwelling. Currently used as a workshop, garaging and wood store, the building offers enormous potential for a multitude of uses including an annexe, home office, gym or provides the opportunity to be developed to a separate dwelling, subject to the correct planning permissions.
