About this property

  • This spacious Victorian house, constructed of stone under a slate-tiled roof, sits comfortably within its pretty gardens and has the benefit of a range of stone outbuildings and a timber, chalet-style annexe.

    The property offers huge potential to refurbish, whilst retaining the benefit of its classic proportions and period features, such as sash windows with working shutters, deep skirting boards, ceiling roses and picture rails. From the symmetrical front façade, entrance is via a decorative wrought-iron porch into a stair hall with original floor tiles. To one side is a spacious and elegant drawing room, with a marble fireplace. Opposite is a dual-aspect dining room with sash windows and working shutters. A cosy study/snug has a woodburning stove. The kitchen/ breakfast room has bespoke oak cabinetry, including a fitted full-height oak dresse. Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room, a laundry room and a boot room with access to the large rear courtyard. Completing the ground floor is a cloakroom. Brick steps from the rear hall lead down to a cellar. Upstairs, a galleried landing offers access to a dual-aspect principal bedroom, three further bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which has a roll-top bath.


    Entrance from the village road is via wrought-iron gates, supported by stone pillars topped with classic stone finials, onto a sweeping area of gravel drive. The garden wraps around two side of the house. Laid predominantly to lawn, it is bounded by mature trees and shrubs, offering complete privacy.

    A second vehicular entrance behind the house offers access to a large courtyard, with further parking, outside the coach house and garage. Parts of this stone outbuilding are in need of some renovation, but it offers the flexibility to create potential secondary accommodation (with relevant consents). The first floor was most recently used as an artists studio space, with a hall and shower room below. A stone outbuilding adjoins the rear of the house, comprising a gardener's WC and further storage room with a Belfast sink. A timber, chalet-style building sits behind the coach house, overlooking the garden. It comprises a living room/kitchenette, a bedroom

Prospect House is a beautiful Victorian family home which I was surprised to learn is not listed. A very exciting opportunity for an incoming buyer.
