    About this property

    • High Meadow was originally a 1950s bungalow, extended as we understand it by the vendor's family in the 1960s to create a two storey family home with an upper balcony and butterfly roof.

      Of part-brick, part-stone clad elevations, the house was designed to make the very best of its location and southerly views over the stunning 7.32 acre lake. The house extends to approximately 2,651 sq ft and requires a full refurbishment. The property is a rare opportunity to renovate the existing house or replace the buildings subject to planning consents.

      The current house has many features of the period from the entrance hall with its open tread staircase, turned wooden handrail and classic 60s metal ballustrades with a curved galleried landing, parquet flooring and on the front elevation, a wide balcony. Outside the property is approached down a long drive interspersed with twisted brick pillars.

      The accommodation flows from the entrance hall and into the main double reception/dining room, each with sliding doors to the terrace and partially divided internally by an archway leading to a tiled fireplace in the sitting room. There is also a cloakroom, second sitting room and study, a kitchen/breakfast room, walk-in pantry and the rear hall with utility and music room/ground floor bedroom with side access and a back door to a terraced area with store/former gardeners cloaks. On the first floor, there are five bedrooms and a family bathroom, three of which enjoy access to the raised balcony with views over the lake and the principal suite also incorporates an en suite.

      The wide rear terrace spans the back of the house and leads to the gardens and a former outside pool which was later enclosed (now derelict) and an attached garage/workshop. The lakeside gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs. There is a former boat house and an ornamental bridge together with a number of small islands within the lake which we understand used to be connected by further bridges.

      The whole site extends to about 9.32 acres.

    This site is absolutely incredible, what a special spot on the edge of such a sought after village. I love the views over the mature lake, a haven for birds and wildlife
