About this property

  • Internally, the house has well-proportioned rooms containing many period features and high ceilings. A central hall separates the living rooms and provides access to the cellar and upper floors. The cellar is a useful area divided into two areas. At the front of the house are two impressive reception rooms - the lounge, a light-filled room with south and east-facing deep windows and featuring a period fireplace with a wooden surround, and a sitting room, finished in bold period colours with contrasting marble fireplace. The dining room is adjacent to the kitchen, again with high ceilings and a deep, south-facing window. The utility room is a large space, also providing a ‘prep' kitchen, with plenty of floor-to-ceiling storage and housing for white goods. At the rear, overlooking the gardens, is the kitchen/breakfast room, traditionally fitted in solid wood topped with granite which contrasts with the clay tiled floor. Glazed double doors open into the gardens and provide a lovely vista. Also accessed from the kitchen is the conservatory.

    The first floor has four good-sized bedrooms. The principal bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. Bedroom two also has an en suite with the remaining bedrooms sharing a large family bathroom. The second floor has two further bedrooms which would make an ideal suite. There is potential to expand into an undeveloped loft area.

    The house is set back from the road, screened by mature evergreen trees. A long gravel drive leads to the front of the house to a parking area for several cars. The gardens to the front are mature, predominantly lawned with a scattering of mature shrubs and trees. At the rear, the gardens have been designed over many years to provide all-year colour and interest. There are several deciduous, fruit and evergreen trees and ornamental ponds set within extensive lawns. A series of island and side beds include a variety of shrubs, spring bulbs and roses. At the bottom of the garden is a yard containing useful outbuildings, offering the chance to re-develop into home/work buildings or garden rooms.
