    About this property

    • The House of Orange is approached via a gated and turning driveway which meanders through the mature and pretty landscaped front garden. The everyday entrance of the house is located via the rear and this opens into a spacious entrance hallway, from here you can access the principal reception areas.

      The drawing room and dining room form the oldest part of the house with open fireplace and Inglenook fireplace respectively. The dining room reconnects with the kitchen, which can also be accessed from the hall which has a range of traditional wall and base units, an Aga and space for a breakfast table. To the rear of the kitchen, there is a large family living area with a utility room just off this. Finally, to the rear, there is a large bespoke orangery with double doors opening onto the rear gardens and its own shower room/wc.

      Moving upstairs, the master bedroom suite has a range of fitted wardrobes and large en suite bathroom with separate shower. There are four more bedrooms on this floor and a family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms interconnect to provide a potential bedroom “suite” if required. On the second floor, two further rooms are being used as a bedroom and a study with access to a useful, boarded eaves roof space.

      On the outside, there is a large garage block with twin up and over doors and workshop area to the side. There is an internal staircase from here leading to a first floor which is currently used as a studio/office space. The mature gardens envelop the house with a large lawn area, flower, shrub, and fruit trees borders. In all, the house sits in grounds of approximately 0.4 acres.
