    About this property

    • Occupying a sought after location on the private section of West Common, Latchmore House enjoys enviable views across beautiful Latchmoor pond and West Common. This impressive Georgian Grade II listed house dates back to the 19th century with later additions and overflows with period charm. Period features include well-proportioned rooms, cornicing, wood panelling, ceiling roses, wood flooring and decorative fireplaces

      This elegant house provides the perfect balance of both formal and informal accommodation. The beautifully proportioned sitting room, charming snug and formal dining room all overlook the frontage with stunning views. The kitchen/breakfast room opens into the conservatory, brimming with natural light and with doors on to the garden terrace. The kitchen itself is comprehensively appointed with an excellent range of country style units complemented by granite worktops and integrated appliances. Just off the kitchen is a fitted utility room and rear hall/boot toom leading to the integral double garage. The garage doors are remotely operated for swift and easy access. Beyond the conservatory is a study, with bespoke fitted cabinetry and access to the garden, while an adjacent ground floor bedroom with en suite shower room is a useful additional space offering flexibility of use.

      A fine period staircase leads to the bedroom accommodation on the first floor comprising three characterful bedrooms, all with fireplaces, built-in wardrobes and affording picturesque views. The principal bedroom is of excellent proportions and benefits from an en suite bathroom, with a bath and separate shower cubicle. There is also a family bathroom and night cloakroom. On the second floor there are two further rooms and a store room.

      The formal gardens of Latchmore House are a real feature of the property and provide an enchanting backdrop.
      The rear garden is predominately laid to lawn, interspersed with a variety of trees while well stocked beds and borders provide interest throughout the seasons. A large terrace adjoins the house providing a perfect spot for entertaining friends and family. Nestled on both sides of the house are charming, enclosed courtyard areas with gates leading to the front of the property. In addition there is a palm house, water feature and gravelled walkway leading to the rear boundary. To the front there is a picturesque garden.
