Handsome country house set in beautiful gardens.
Dovermoor is set in a delightful rural position surrounded by established gardens and grounds. Constructed from a timber frame and partially rendered under a pitched tiled roof with the accommodation arranged over three floors the house has been sensitively restored and refurbished by the current owners. Internally the house is presented to a high standard with numerous features including, exposed beams and studwork, a galleried and vaulted hall and polished oak boarded floors. The kitchen/breakfast room is superbly fitted with bespoke wooden base and wall mounted units, granite work surfaces, an oil fired Aga, built in induction hob, NEFF oven, steamer and warming drawer. The garden room is off the breakfast room offering wonderful views of the mature gardens beyond. The utility, pantry and boot/boiler room are off the kitchen. The ground floor also provides two cloakrooms. The two principal reception rooms are well proportioned with large windows over looking the gardens. The drawing room has beautiful panelling, exposed oak flooring and a fireplace with a Jotul wood burning stove. The snug also benefits from a Villager wood burning stove and has French doors out to the terrace.
The first floor is approached from the entrance hall and leads up to a galleried landing. The principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom and fitted wardrobes. There are a further four bedrooms, two of which have en suite shower rooms, and a family bathroom. The second floor is currently used as an office with an additional room to the side, currently used for storage.
The drive culminates in a large gravelled parking sweep to the side of the house giving access to the double cart lodge. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with a partial moat running along the boundary. The rear gardens are particularly beautiful with well stocked herbaceous borders, wide expanses of lawn, established trees and hedging, providing the property with a high degree of privacy and seclusion. Along the eastern boundary lies the walled courtyard where the swimming pool is situated, heated by solar panels and an air source heat pump. Behind this is the hard tennis court, garage and gym area.
The large Suffolk barn is accessed via double doors on either side and has the potential to be developed as ancillary accommodation to the main house subject to the necessary consents being obtained. Behind the tennis court lies the kitchen garden and greenhouse, orchard and a small paddock. The paddock access is gained via a right of way along the far eastern boundary.
