Spacious detached home with views over countryside & separate annexe.
Located on a quiet lane previously known as Paradise Lane, is a detached family house in grounds of about half an acre. The house has been considerably improved and extended by the current owners, and backs onto the Thurlow Estate. The house is approached by electric gates and a drive that has space for up to six cars. The front door opens into a lobby which then leads through a pair of double doors into the hall with a wrought iron spiral staircase leading up to the first floor. Another set of double doors leads into the garden room and onto the terrace outside. To the left is a cloakroom and to the right the double aspect drawing room, currently used as a gallery and a space to entertain guests.
The open plan triple aspect kitchen and family room has a Neff electric oven and microwave, gas hob, integrated dishwasher and fridge and plenty of preparation space. From the kitchen is the family room with a fireplace and wood burner with pale oak flooring. There is a walk-in larder and a separate utility room which has two washing machines, a freezer, worktops, storage and a wooden ceiling-mounted pulley to dry laundry. The accommodation continues in a wing leading off the kitchen and breakfast room. Two bedrooms, one en suite, a further bedroom/study with French doors leading out onto the terrace and the family bathroom can be found here . The spiral staircase winds up to the first floor landing, a light-filled space also with a skylight, and leads to two en suite bedrooms. The twin room benefits from a delightful plunge bath in the en suite, while the other bedroom has an en suite shower room, both have views over the countryside. There is a large room over the kitchen which is currently being used for storage and has the possibility to be converted (STP).
The owners have converted the garage into a self-contained annexe with a galley kitchen, sitting room, shower room and a large triple aspect bedroom on the first floor. The boundary with the Thurlow Estate is a stream, the owners installed a decked tree walk running down to the water, with a walkway at the south end of the house with lavender and roses coming up in the spring. There is a large, beautifully kept lawn fringed with mature trees and stone terrace at the back of the house. Scattered around the garden are two fig trees, three fruit trees (including a cherry and two plum trees), two climbing flowering quinces, day lilies and flowering shrubs. Three sheds offer useful storage and space for potting plants.
