Privately located house with meadow in about 8.53 acres.
Approached via a long gated driveway, the property is discreetly nestled within its own grounds. Facing south, overlooking the gardens and woodland, the house has attractive rendered elevations with French-style shutters under a tiled roof. The house dates from the 1920s with significant extension in the 1950s. Whilst the house would benefit from a cosmetic upgrade, the accommodation is light and spacious with the principal reception rooms and bedrooms oriented to face south overlooking the grounds and woodland. A spacious stone-floored hall separates the dining and sitting room. The sitting room has dual-aspect windows with a feature 'port hole'-style window at the rear and a fireplace, whilst at the rear a wonderful size kitchen extending over 23 ft adjoins a utility room. There is potential to incorporate the dining room, creating a vast kitchen/dining/family room. A study at the corner of the house has a set of French doors to the front lawns and access to a lobby and cloakroom creating a great work-from-home environment. To the east, a double garage can be accessed from within the house. Separately, there is a rear entrance with a staircase accessing a one-bedroom flat with en suite over the garage.
On the first floor of the house are five bedrooms, a separate cloakroom, one family bathroom and two en suites, The principal bedroom extends to over 25 ft and features tall French doors providing a lovely private outlook.
The gardens, grounds and woodland extend to about 8.53 acres in total. A long drive passes a gate lodge through a copse to a substantial parking area in front of the house. Adjacent to the house is a large pond with water feature. To the south, a flagstone pathway separates a copse and the lawned gardens, leading to a metal retained footbridge, passing over a stream, into a meadow. The meadow is about 2 acres and has a separate entrance leading back towards the house via a brick-built bridge and a pathway. To the north of the house open lawns are flanked by woodland and include a Victorian summerhouse and a sizeable traditional-style Hartley Botanic glasshouse. To the west is an ancient coppiced private woodland.
In all about 8.53 acres.
