About this property

  • The Villa is an exceptionally handsome period house with stunning south-west facing gardens and two studios.

    The building principally dates from around 1840 though the heart of the house is earlier still.

    Grade II listed for special architectural and historical interest, the house retains many superb period features, including the classical Gault brick façade, corner pilasters and slate roof.

    Internally, the accommodation flows wonderfully well, comprising elegantly proportioned, light-filled rooms.

    The original front door opens on to the entrance hall, with original floor: stairs lead to the first floor, a door leads to the drawing room, and double doors to the dining room.

    The double aspect drawing room is a particularly fine room, with a high ceiling, typical of the period, original cornicing and picture rail, sash windows, and a marble chimneypiece.

    The dining room mirrors the drawing room, with high ceilings, sash windows to two aspects and original cornicing, though with a dado rail rather than picture rail.

    The kitchen, which with the sitting room and snug, occupies an older part of the house, is directly beyond the dining room.

    The hand built kitchen has attractive wooden cupboards, granite work surfaces and space for a range cooker. A casement window fills the room the natural light and provides a view of the beautiful garden, which can be accessed via a stable door.

    The sitting room has wonderful exposed timbers and an inglenook fire with inset wood burning stove; a glazed door leads to the garden. Beyond the sitting room is a a further - double aspect - snug, which can be used a study. Completing the ground floor is a lavatory.

    The bedroom accommodation is spread over the first and second floor and consists of two double bedrooms on the first floor and a further two generous double bedrooms on the second floor.

    The principal bedroom, on the second floor, is especially fine with an original chimneypiece and an en suite.

    The Villa has beautiful, south-west facing gardens, with mature trees, herbaceous borders and a pond.

    There are two superb studios, perfect for working from home. Subject to necessary consents, there is scope to convert into an annexe.

    There is ample parking to the front and a garage.
