A charming edge of village home , with great potential, in 1 acre
Forest House is an attractive edge of village home, enjoying a south to south west position surrounded by 1 acre of delightfully mature gardens. The house is now in need of updating and presents a wonderful opportunity to make changes and help the house reach its full potential.
The house has a lovely presence and has been in the same family for over 100 years. The accommodation is light and airy, in particular the living room with open fireplace and the substantial kitchen/breakfast room with wood burner and french doors out to the south facing terrace, ideal for outside dining and entertaining. Further rooms include the sitting room, dining room and a useful study with direct access to the gardens.
The principal bedroom is spacious, with en suite bath/shower room, with a landing leading to three further double bedrooms, some with built in storage. All bedrooms enjoy views of the surrounding gardens and land.
The property benefits from a gravelled in and out drive, providing access to the front and rear of the house with parking for many cars, and to the extremely useful garaging, garden store and wood shed. These buildings offer potential
for a number of uses. The charming gardens sweep round from the east to the west of the house, with fine specimen trees including willow and beech, and established hedged boundaries providing privacy. The grounds are mainly laid to lawn, interspersed with herbaceous beds, shrubs, wooded areas, a kitchen garden and delightful summer house. The lawns are divided by hedging providing different areas to enjoy and the house is partly clad in a wonderful wisteria. The grounds extend to just over 1 acre.
