    About this property

    • April Wood was completed in 2023 and provides a substantial and largely rebuilt house, extending the footprint of the previous dwelling, and creating a modern family house of 4,671 sq ft over two floors. The house is principally constructed of brick with timber cladding on the upper floors, under a slate roof.

      The entrance hall lies at the heart of the house, with half-glazed double doors leading directly ahead to the triple aspect sitting room and, separately, a further set of half-glazed doors leading to the open plan kitchen and dining area. The sitting room faces out over the rear garden, with two sets of French doors opening the patios on either side. It interlinks with the kitchen and dining area, creating a lovely open-plan family area with accommodation that flows beautifully. Bi-fold doors lead out from the dining area to a rear patio.

      The kitchen has not been fitted but has been left in shell finish, ready for an incoming buyer to be able to design the kitchen of their choice. It is wired and plumbed in readiness and the Vendor is willing to work with a buyer, subject to contract, to help install the kitchen.

      Three further rooms on the ground floor have been designed and built to provide flexible accommodation, but would most likely suit use as a study, a ground floor bedroom with en suite shower room (requiring installation), and a family room. There is a plant/utility room and a cloakroom with WC.

      An oak staircase leads to the open galleried landing, with all five principal bedrooms accessed off. The floor finish has been left bare for an incoming buyer to choose their own style of finish. Of note, the Vendors have made use of the excellent ceiling height in the landing area and installed tall doorways, creating a wonderful sense of space and light. The bedrooms would all be described as “double” and the smallest of them extends to 21' in length. Three of the five bedrooms have en suite shower rooms (requiring installation) and two have a ‘Jack and Jill' shower room between them, also requiring fitting out.

      Outside
      The house is accessed from the village road onto a resin bonded driveway, with parking for several cars. To the left is a former garage, now providing a workshop and stores but which could easily be reinstated as a garage. There is a south facing patio off the sitting room and a slate path wraps around the house, providing easy access to all rooms. The lawned garden runs parallel with a belt of mature woodland, leading down towards fields and farmland views.

    I love the impressive sitting room and connecting kitchen/dining area at April Wood; it lends itself to family living so well.
