About this property

  • Russell house is a superb detached Georgian style family house situated on the edge of the village with superb far-reaching views over open countryside. The property benefits from a wonderfully wide frontage to the village lane and is approached over a gravel driveway which runs across the front of the property and down one side, providing parking and turning areas and leading onto the double gates which in turn take you through to the rear gardens.

    The accommodation is approached through a welcoming reception hall, leads onto a large drawing room with the door out onto the rear terrace. The second reception room, the library could also be used as a television room. There is a beautifully fitted kitchen/dining room with a range of bespoke units with central island with marble work surface, fitted appliances including a large range with aluminum hood over and also a fitted AGA, double doors lead onto the rear terrace and door to the utility room. Separate scullery and a cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

    On the first floor is a wonderful principal bedroom suite running the width of the house. A large bedroom with views over the rear gardens and countryside beyond, and an opening that leads through to a wonderful large adjoining bathroom with a twin hand basin unit, underfloor heating and separate walk-in shower with bench and steam room function. A spiral staircase leads down from the master bedroom to the kitchen/dining area. There is a guest suite with adjoining bathroom, two further bedrooms and a family shower room.

    OUTSIDE
    The property is approached over a gravelled driveway which provides significant parking and turning areas both in front of the house and to one side, with double gates between brick pillars leading through to the rear garden.

    Extensive terrace runs the width of the property with views over the gardens to the fields beyond. The formal gardens are extensive with beautiful box hedgerows creating rooms within the garden. Beyond the formal gardens is a large level area perfect for football games, or indeed potentially for a tennis court, and beyond this is a superb spot for evening drinks where the current owners currently have a large table.

    To the eastern side of the property a large gravelled area joins the garage which is currently fenced off from the front of the property and used for storage.
