About this property

  • Three Chimneys is positioned in an accessible and attractive rural setting, on the edge of the hamlet of Aunby, with gardens and views to the south, east and north of the house.

    The attractive south facing stone under pantile house offers well-presented and characterful accommodation, which has been comprehensively refurbished in recent years to showcase the fabric and materials within the property, along with the setting for which a 2016 two storey cedar-clad kitchen and principal bedroom extension showcases particularly well.

    Positioned within two acres of mature gardens and paddocks, almost at the end of the public highway serving the hamlet, the property is positioned within an attractive and relatively peaceful setting with views, vistas and walks on public footpaths and lanes from the boundary.

    Accommodation
    The traditional front door opens from the south facing garden into a stairwell lobby. The three reception rooms line this side of the house, each with solid oak floors, south facing windows and views to the gardens.

    To the right, the intimate library has an exposed stonework wall, fitted book cases and a brick chimney housing a cast iron pot stove. The elegant 18' sitting room has a tiled chimney breast housing another wood burning stove, and provides access to a well-equipped office/music room, with fitted desk benching and shelved storage.

    To the left, the living room has a beamed ceiling and a wide stone inglenook with wood burning stove, with access to a rear entrance lobby with a well-appointed and modern wet-room alongside it, and to the kitchen.

    The triple aspect family dining kitchen offers fabulous views of the garden, to which there are west facing bi-folding doors, along with a separate pedestrian doors to north and south. The fabulous kitchen incorporates a bespoke suite, with central island, deep soft close drawers and cupboards and integrated appliances. A separate utility room adjoins the kitchen.

    At first floor level, the principal bedroom suite incorporates a vaulted double bedroom, with westly facing covered balcony, ideal for evening drinks and sunset views, along with a dressing room and a contemporary en suite wet room. Double bedroom two has concertina doors, allowing it to form a study landing as it is currently used. The family bathroom, opposite, is recently fitted and well-appointed. Bedrooms three and four are also doubles, each with south facing windows and plumbing within bedroom four's wardrobe for the creation of an en suite should the buyer wish.

    Outside
    The driveway lies to the north side of the house, with parking for several vehicles, leading to a detached double garage, with an external staircase to its rear that rises to a versatile store room above it.

    The gardens lie to the south, west and north of the house. The formal lawned garden is to the south and west of the house, laid to lawn with flowering beds, mature fruit trees and terraces. Two paddocks adjoin the garden to the west, forming the western boundary to fields, whilst to the north of the garage, a kitchen garden and orchard. The grounds extend to about 2.01 acres in total.

I really like this property and its setting. The house has a contemporary feel and ideal for entertaining and hosting. The setting is also intriguing. It is isolated, but not secluded, and I can just imagine the sunsets and night skies to be awe inspiring.
