About this property

  • Pinecroft and its outbuildings, garden and driveway, about 1.8 acres, is available along with about nine acres of paddock and woodland. Alternatively, the house and gardens could be sold separately with a guide price of £1,000,000.

    Pinecroft is believed to have been built around 200 years ago, and was originally two, possibly three cottages; it was reconfigured in the late 19th century into the impressive family home that it is today. The property is being offered to the market for the first time in around 100 years, and has much to recommend it, offering excellent scope for updating and reconfiguring (subject to obtaining the necessary permissions) and with many classic period features including tall sash windows, high ceilings and stripped wood flooring.

    Pinecroft has attractive white-painted brick and clay tile-hung elevations under a slate tiled roof, with roses planted to the front and an open porch sheltering the half-glazed front door. The principal reception rooms are arranged on the southern elevation; the sitting room has a working fireplace with a copper hood and wood mantelpiece. Lying across the hall, the dual aspect dining room has bay windows to the front and side and a working brick fireplace. There is a good sized study, with a cloakroom and WC beyond.

    The kitchen/breakfast room has space for table and chairs, and a four oven oil-fired Aga (please see Agent's Note). To the rear lies a utility room and a boot room with adjoining pantry. The boot room gives access to the rear courtyard.

    The first floor offers six bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate WC.

    Pinecroft is approached from Felcourt Road by a long, tree lined private driveway bordered by light woodland, which leads up to the parking area ahead of the house, and onto the detached garaging and the rear courtyard with secondary access to Felcourt Lane. The courtyard gives access to the attached gardener's WC, cold store and log store, and the house via the boot room.

    The garden lies mainly to front of the house, and is predominantly laid to level lawn with mature trees, flowering shrubs and flower beds. A metal fence separates the garden and the paddock, giving a lovely open outlook. Pinecroft, its outbuildings, garden and driveway extend to about 1.8 acres.

    Paddock and Woodland
    The paddock and woodland lie to the south of the gardens and house. They have separate vehicular access from Felcourt Road via a five bar gate which opens to hardstanding, offering parking for several vehicles. The paddock and woodland extend to about 9.2 acres.

    In all, about 11 acres.
