    About this property

    • The Stables once made up part of the Holbrook estate, built in the 1860s and has been owned by the same family since 1962. The property sits in a pleasant location, set some 300m from the main road and enjoys a plot of 0.2 acres. Whilst the property requires a scope of modernisation, the accommodation is deceptively spacious, with a versatile arrangement, spanning 2500sq ft over two storeys. Many of the rooms benefit from significant amounts of natural light thanks to their large arched windows and south-facing orientation, which also bathes the sizeable walled garden in bright sunshine during Spring and Summer months.

      Access to the south elevation leads into a bright, spacious entrance hall, laid with original oak strip flooring, allowing access to the extent of the accommodation at ground floor level. Off to the right hand side of the entrance hall is a spacious three piece bathroom suite, holding a low level WC, pedestal wash hand basin and a fitted bath with shower.

      Off to the left hand side of the entrance hall there is a pleasant, dual aspect dining room with two arched windows to the front aspect and original strip oak flooring. Leading on from the dining room there is a study to the rear aspect and a versatile, dual aspect room, currently utilised as a twin bedroom with a fitted dressing table and built-in wardrobes.

      The entrance hall follows on to a fitted kitchen, positioned to the rear of the property, which incorporates a range of base and wall units and enjoys a view over the rear garden.

      The charming sitting room is accessible directly off the kitchen, displaying exposed stone walls with a large picture window over the garden and a range of built-in cupboards and shelving. Also off the kitchen is a utility room providing space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer with integral access to the garage also granted via the utility.

      Stairs ascend from the entrance hall to the bright, first floor landing and on to the accommodation at first floor level. To the east end of the property there is a sizeable, dual aspect double bedroom, overlooking the rear garden, with a built-in wardrobe and bedside storage. The adjoining bedroom is situated to the rear elevation and also benefits a collection of fitted storage. The family bathroom suite is fitted with a cast iron bath, low level WC, vanity wash hand basin and holds a linen storage cupboard.

      Bedroom two is a generous double bedroom with high level storage cupboards. Bedroom one is a charming, dual aspect bedroom spanning the full depth of the property, with a double fronted view over the rear aspect and displays the exposed king truss A-frame beams. This room is currently utilised as a lounge, however, it would be more ideally suited to the principal bedroom suite.

      Off-street parking is available to the front of the property. in addition to the integral double garage. The double garage is of generous proportions, with double timber entry doors, internal lighting and an inspection chamber. To the rear of the garage there is a generous workshop area with windows overlooking the rear garden. This area could accommodate a third, smaller vehicle if required and would also suit use as internal accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consents.

      The large rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn with established borders, shrubbery and planting. A central rockery feature also displays seasonal planting and shrubbery alongside a small pond. To the head of the garden there are three stone built outbuildings, providing useful storage. These outbuildings do have potential to conversion for alternative uses, such as a gym, office or secondary accommodation, subject to the necessary planning permissions.

    The jewel in the crown in my opinion is the location, to acquire a property of this size within the grounds of Holbrook Hall is a very rare offering.
