About this property

  • The entrance hall has oak flooring, a fine staircase and steps down to a cloakroom. There are three superb reception rooms along the rear of the house with stunning views over the south facing gardens and each with delightful features including light-filled rooms, oak floors, fireplaces, bay windows, window seat and panelled doors. From the entrance hall is a study/library and on to a ground floor bedroom (6) with ensuite shower room. The kitchen is located in the heart of the house and is well-fitted with a comprehensive range of base and wall mounted units including an island and integral dishwasher and recess for a range cooker. This opens into a breakfast room with fitted dresser style unit and door through to the fourth reception room/garden room which opens out into the gardens. To the far end of the house is a secondary entrance hall, laundry room, utility, cloakroom and wine store which lends itself to potential annexe accommodation.

    A square staircase leads to a split-level landing with storeroom. Panel doors give access to four double bedrooms all of which have built-in cupboards, fireplaces and three of them have views over the stunning gardens. The main bathroom, also ensuite with the principal bedroom, is well-fitted with a corner shower, WC, bath and sink with vanity unit. There is a separate cloakroom and shower room.

    The second floor has an attic box room which could be made into an ensuite with the fifth bedroom beyond and has eaves storage cupboards and far reaching views.


    Double gates to the very edge of the property open into the main garden. Immediately to the front of the house is a pathway to the front door with the elevation adorned by climbing hydrangea. To the far end is a double length garage/workshop with lean-to wood store. A further gateway between the house and the garage leads to the south facing gardens with stone paving along the elevation and various rose beds, a raised pond and seating areas. There is a box garden with rose entwined pergola. The gardens are well hedged with specimen trees to the end and further formal gardens with established shrubs, flower beds and steps up to an attractive secret garden and orchard enclosed by further trees and shrubs and to the far corner a brick built summerhouse.

    Planning permission granted for bungalows in the orchard, now lapsed.

In my opinion this must be the best location within the town. Not only does the house offer versatile accommodation but also has the most spectacular garden with a lovely sunny orientation.
