    About this property

    • Substantial Grade II listed villa of early 19th century origins arranged over three floors. Pinkish-brown brick with painted stucco façade under a Welsh slate roof.

      The current owners have sympathetically renovated, extended and improved throughout, maintaining many of the original key features and thus retaining its elegance and charm.

      Period features include open fireplaces, sash windows, cornicing, deep skirting boards, four panel internal doors, elegant staircase, entrance portico and wrought iron railings.

      The house now offers fantastic flexible split level accommodation which embraces modern living to the full. The addition of the kitchen and breakfast room plus the sitting/dining/family room extension now gives the property the essential central hub of the house, with doors onto the garden and paved terrace beyond for summer entertaining.

      The reception hall has access to the main reception rooms and stairs to first and lower ground floors. The drawing room enjoys dual aspect particularly to the front overlooking the park. Elegant Gothic fireplace with an ornate surround acts as the main focal point. Opening through to a lovely snug with dual aspect particularly overlooking the garden to rear.

Integral fittings including fridge, freezer, drinks fridge, drinks cupboard, coffee station and dish washer. This lovely room flows into a substantial extension where the current owners have added a spacious and light sitting/dining/family room with the addition of a roof lantern and bi fold doors, all allowing natural light to pervade throughout. From the kitchen and breakfast room there is a door to a useful pantry. Opposite the kitchen is a study and beyond a gym/bedroom six.
