About this property

  • Situated in a fabulous semi-rural position adjoining Bisham Woods, with its many walking trails, is this attractive detached property set within about one acre of large but manageable gardens. To the rear there is a wonderful lawned garden with stable block offering a variety of uses, and beyond open farmland over which there are magnificent country views. The house is beautifully presented throughout in a thoughtful and characterful style that provides a homely feel, with traditional country-style décor given a modern facelift by premium additions such as a handsome kitchen. The multiple reception rooms make it an excellent choice for families, with ample space for both formal entertaining and informal family occasions. Highlights include the new modern staircase, rising to the first floor, and the range of modern conveniences: bifold doors, underfloor heating, a utility room, fitted shutters, a good range of storage and a wood-burning stove for the cooler months. This house wants for nothing and is ready for immediate occupation.

    The substantial accommodation amounts to more than 3500 sq ft and is generously proportioned throughout. The entrance hall opens to a sizeable drawing room, kitchen/dining room and adjoining family room, a sitting room, ground floor shower room with w.c. and a utility room, which also provides internal access to the garage. There are two separate staircases to the first floor: one to a double bedroom/home office on its own above the garage, ideal for guest accommodation, and the other to the main bedrooms comprising a principal, dual aspect bedroom with an en suite bath/shower room accessed through a walk-in wardrobe, a further en suite bedroom, three additional bedrooms and a family bath/shower room.

    Hollow Drift is situated in a quiet position, set back from Hockett Lane along a short gravel lane, open out onto a good-size parking area for several cars and the double integrated garage. The front garden features a number of shrubs providing year-round interest, while to the rear there is a very charming south-facing garden which is landscaped to include a sunken seating area well suited to outdoor entertaining, a large lawn interspersed with mature fruit trees and well-stocked flowerbeds, and a separate terrace which has far-reaching private views over the countryside beyond. A gravel path from the driveway leads up to a detached timber stable block with three looseboxes, which is currently used for storage.
