Considerably enlarged detached village house with independent annexe and south facing gardens.
Corners enjoys an elevated position tucked away in the heart of this popular village. It was substantially refurbished and extended about 20 years ago to create a very well proportioned detached family home with spacious and versatile accommodation extending to approximately 4,168 sq ft over three floors. In more recent years, the vendors have fully upgraded the kitchen with superb Italian units and Miele appliances and have more recently created an independent annexe over the garage and carport.
Of painted and rendered elevations beneath a tiled roof, the original 1950s property is un-recognisable due to the considerable additions, alterations and upgrades which have been carried out. The spacious kitchen/dining/sitting room - with a playroom area with wooden flooring at the far end - incorporates a large island and tiled basalt floor tiles (with electric underfloor heating) whilst folding doors lead from the dining area onto an external terrace and the superb mature gardens beyond. Miele appliances include a wide oven, a concealed coffee machine, fridge and freezer; the island has stainless steel worktops and there are Corian work surfaces both in here and the adjacent utility room.
The separate dining room with French doors also connects directly with the kitchen and beyond is a well proportioned sitting room with woodburner; bespoke fitted cupboards and shelving and a bay window enjoying views of the garden. In addition there is music room, family room and a vaulted office/gym with access direct to the double garage. A cloakroom and shower room complete the ground floor accommodation.
On the first floor there are six bedrooms, three of which (at the rear) have en suite facilities and two family bathrooms one of which has a Jack and Jill arrangement with an adjoining bedroom. The master bedroom suite is particularly worthy of note with its bamboo flooring, a Juliette balcony, dressing room and its en suite bathroom is fitted in a Japanese style. The second floor accommodation is approached via two staircases, the first provides access to a super vaulted guest suite of bedroom and en suite bathroom with an oval bath and the second is approached via a cast iron spiral staircase with a vaulted playroom/eighth bedroom with sofa bed and an adjoining cloakroom.
The property owns the drive from Moules Lane over which there is a Right of Way for its neighbour (Prospect House). The wide gravelled drive provides a considerable parking area and access to the double garage with remote access. To one side is a car port and a stable door leads to a staircase to an independent first floor annexe with sitting area, kitchenette, bedroom and shower room.
The delightful mature and private rear gardens are incorporate a variety of tall trees including mature Walnut, Fir and Yew along with some fruit trees (apple, crab apple, plum and Japanese cherry). A decking area immediately abuts the rear of the property and there are a couple of raised planters beside the shed.
Please note the Tree House has not been used in recent years and therefore buyers will need to take advice as to its safety.

I loved the huge kitchen/dining/family room which welcomes you in as you enter the house. There is so much space elsewhere as well, together with a useful independent annexe and impressive distant views towards Linton from the upper floors .Lucy Banks
