An attractive and spacious family home with character features and set within established grounds, well located for road and rail links.
Elmstead is an impressive family home dating from the late 1800s retaining many character features and has implemented planning permission in place to extend to one side creating a kitchen/breakfast/family room. The principal accommodation is well-proportioned and is arranged to benefit from the southerly views over the rear garden. These established gardens provide a high degree of privacy and in total the plot amounts to about 1.32 acres.
The principal reception rooms provide attractive areas for formal and family living and all have views over the south facing garden. The drawing room is triple aspect and has parquet flooring and an impressive open stone fireplace, together with a full height bay window with doors to the rear terrace. The dining room has a square bay window and the snug has a door to the rear terrace and a fireplace with a wood burning stove.
The breakfast room is double aspect and adjoins the kitchen and utility rooms which are simply appointed with a gas fired Aga.
Completing this floor is a cloakroom and walk-in store cupboard.
Arranged over the first floor is the principal bedroom suite which comprises a spacious bedroom with wonderful views over the garden and an en suite bathroom.
There are four further bedrooms, one of which has views over the rear garden.
Completing this floor are two bathrooms.
Arranged over the second floor comprises a bedroom and two useful attic store rooms.
The house is approached over a gravel drive which provides parking and leads to a detached timber frame garage with two open bays. There is a further garage to the other side of the house with limited access.
The established gardens as a whole provide privacy with mature hedging to the perimeters. There are areas of level lawns with gravel paths leading around the grounds. To the rear is a charming veranda and terrace providing an ideal area for al fresco entertaining. Within the gardens is a former tennis court, a brick implement store and a timber rotating summerhouse.
