About this property

  • The house is believed to date back to the late 1930's and was
    built by Marriot builders for Mr Marriot. The accommodation
    comprises well-proportioned and light-filled rooms with a south
    facing garden which extends further to another section of
    garden to the back. The house has been in the same family
    ownership for about 40 years. The accommodation briefly
    comprises: A half glazed front door leads into a front hall with a
    side door to the garage, with up and over door to the front. An
    oak door opens into the reception hall with a fine square
    staircase with under stair cupboard and panelled doors to
    the main reception rooms. The family room has an open
    fireplace and door to the outside. A further door leads through to the snug/study/garden room with sliding door opening into the conservatory which also has a door out to the gardens.
    The sitting room has a bay window and feature fireplace.
    There is a cloakroom off the inner hall. The dining room has a bay window. At the end of the inner hall is a pantry cupboard with shelving and storage cupboards. The kitchen has a comprehensive range of base and wall mounted units with expansive worksurfaces which incorporates a four plate hob. There are wall mounted Bosch ovens, recess and plumbing for a dish washer and fitted breakfast bench. A half glazed door leads out to the covered walkway with door beyond to the utility/store. The first floor has a galleried landing with airing cupboard and doors to three double bedrooms with garden views, a fourth single bedroom to the front of the house and two bath/shower rooms. There are in-built wardrobes and lovely outlooks over the gardens.

    The outside
    The house is set back from the road behind waist height brick
    walls with a gravel parking sweep and established shrubs. A side passageway leads to the main garden which is south facing. The house is adorned by climbing roses with a terrace area running along the length of the house with lawns boarded by established shrubs and flower beds and a greenhouse and
    garden shed. To the far corner of the garden is an opening into a "secret garden" which is enclosed by predominantly
    evergreen shrubs. This area of garden has been used as a
    vegetable garden and would make a great location for a home

    Mains electric, water and drainage. Gas central heating.
