About this property

  • No 10, which dates back to circa 1850, sits proudly at the head of The Copperfields and once owned the surrounding land that The Copperfields now sits in. The property's period construction draws you in and with its modern additions supplementing the living space creates a fabulous family home with the prospect of further enhancement. The internal accommodation is set over three floors which includes a cellar, all under a pitch tiled roof.

    A sweeping private gravel driveway leads you up to the home and offers a generous amount of parking as well the benefit of the double garage. The front door leads you into the extensive ground floor accommodation where you are led into the grand entrance hall that is centred around a feature fireplace as well as including the staircase to the first-floor accommodation. Leading directly off the entrance hall is the living room with exceptional high ceilings, dual aspect views to the front and rear of the home via bay windows and an open fireplace which creates a warm and inviting feel to the room.

    A further reception room which offers immense flexibility in its use gives you onward access to the generous sun room with its open views over the garden and the kitchen. The kitchen itself offers an array of floor and wall storage with Corian worktops and an Aga which also fuels the domestic hot water (a separate gas boiler which runs the central heating/radiators), an extremely useful utility area opens off from the kitchen which itself gives you direct access to the rear garden. The bright and airy breakfast room is a lovely communal space enjoying views over the rear garden. The cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation. From the rear hall stairs lead you down to the cellars where you will find three individual cellars all of which are currently being used as storage, there is also external access from the cellars.

    The first floor again continues to offer an abundance of space with its bedroom areas set over split levels. There are four double bedrooms located on the first floor. Bedroom one itself has the benefit of a more than generous dressing room which leads you up to the main bedroom area and to the en suite bathroom. Bedroom two also offers its own dressing room which could also be used as a study area or playroom if used as a child's room. The family bathroom completes the first floor and internal accommodation and comprises of both a walk in shower and separate bath.

    Outside the home has the benefit of a delightful wrap around rear garden which is fully enclosed. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a paved patio encompassing the home. There are a number of mature trees and well stocked herbaceous borders which line the boundary. A large covered store is built off the rear of the double garage and is ideal for wood storage. The front of the property can also be accessed via a side gate.
