About this property

  • St Francis House is a spacious village house believed to be late Georgian/early Victorian with painted brick elevations under a slated roof. Previously used as a religious retreat since the 1950's, it was sold to the current owners in 2010 who have subsequently carried out an extensive programme of renovation and refurbishment to a high standard with great style and flair.

    The well-proportioned and extensive accommodation is laid out over two floors and has gracious light and spacious rooms with tall ceilings. A significant proportion of the ground floor is floored with reclaimed mahogany parquet, linking the spaces together. The layout is extremely practical for a large family with a wide entrance hallway, a vaulted top lit staircase hall, a cloakroom with extensive built-in cupboards, a shower/cloaks, spacious sitting room with wide sliding doors overlooking the garden, a spacious utility room with considerable storage, a snug/office, rear hall, separate study, and two inter-connecting rooms with bays overlooking the gardens with reclaimed French stone fireplace surrounds and cornicing. These interconnect with crittal double doors and provide a fantastic kitchen/dining/entertaining space.

    The completely re-fitted kitchen incorporates four impressive tall, sliding doors ingeniously concealing two Miele ovens, the 5 ring gas hob and extractor, a Liebeherr fridge and Miele freezer and considerable internal wooden shelving. There is a large bespoke poured concrete central island fitted with two Miele dishwashers and vast drawers together with two further store cupboards with double doors – one pair of which return into a space saving internal pocket and incorporates a Miele microwave. In addition there is a Quooker tap providing hot, cold and fizzy water.

    On the first floor there are four large bedrooms – three with en suite bath or shower rooms and a family bathroom. The impressive principal bedroom suite has an adjacent bathroom with bath and walk-in shower and two dressing rooms, one with built-in wardrobes.

    St Francis House is situated alongside the High Street in a Conservation area and has a shallow flower bed along the pavement elevation. The side and rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees and shrubs and there is a gated access to the north-east leading into an area with concrete hardstanding.

    In all about 0.78 acres.

This really is a very special house, I love the feel which engulfs you as soon as you enter the front door, the high ceilings yet homely spaces and plenty of additional rooms can comfortably absorb a large family with a variety of needs.
