About this property


    The Paddock presents an exciting and rare opportunity to create a wonderful family home, positioned high in the Haldon Hills with impressive views, this charming property offers spacious accommodation arranged over two floors. The front and side doors give access to a large, bright hallway which is perfect for welcoming guests. There is a generous kitchen, now in need of modernisation offers a range of wall, base and draw units and Kitchen Island with space for a table, as well as walk-in pantry and rear access to the garden with a very useful covered porch area.

    The study enjoys delightful views over the garden and would equally make a good playroom/snug being in close proximity to the kitchen. There are two main reception rooms to the front of the house which enjoy fine proportions and large windows with lovely views across the gardens and countryside beyond. The sitting room with open feature fire and large ceiling to floor doors is a beautifully bright room and provides direct access onto the front veranda and patio as well as the gardens beyond – perfect for alfresco dining or entertaining.
    Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a useful cloakroom.

    Upstairs there are three good-sized bedrooms, each with lovely views over the gardens and grounds, a family bathroom and separate WC, all of which are accessed via a central, light landing overlooking the former stables.

    Outside is a delight. The drive, flanked by the original brick pillar and walls, opens onto a large turning space offering parking for several cars as well as a double and separate single garage inside the old red brick stables. The stables itself provides enormous potential, subject to any necessary planning constraints, with two storey and much character. Currently used for garaging and a large workshop with an old wood-burning stove it has huge potential for secondary accommodation, studio or home office.

    The gardens themselves are mainly laid to lawn and are a particular feature to the property, there are well- stocked beds and borders and an array of beautiful established trees, including a wonderful Magnolia. To the end of the garden, there is an area for growing vegetables and compost heap as well as small orchard with a range of fruit trees. Beyond, there is access to the paddock which is currently an extension to the gardens, but equally could be contained with fencing for livestock. To the side of the property, is useful garden tool/coal shed.
