About this property

  • For the first time in around 50 years this unlisted period property is being offered for sale and offers an exciting opportunity to create an updated family home. It offers an abundance of character features and has wonderfully proportioned rooms, many enjoying fabulous views of the far reaching southerly views over the rear garden and beyond.
    There are three elegant reception rooms on the ground floor. The impressive drawing room features a fireplace and a long window seat extending across the width of the room. There is a further elegant sitting room, again with open fireplace and window seat. The separate dining room has a bay window overlooking the terrace outside and there are two inner hallways with double doors to the rear terrace, plus a utility room, pantry, boot room and WC.
    The first floor offers four bedrooms which are served by a bathroom, shower room and separate WC. All rooms have beautiful views.
    Outside, the front of the house is set behind mature hedging, with a sizeable block paved driveway with the garage to one side. The grounds in all extend to around 1.5 acres. To the rear, there is an elevated terrace adjacent to the house, the perfect place to relax and enjoy the exceptional views over the garden. Beyond the lawn, the garden which was planted years ago boasts a wide variety of trees which are interspersed with walkways.
    A number of outbuildings, together with further garaging offer storage facilities and could offer further potential.
    In addition there are three linked cellar rooms (with limited head room) beneath the drawing room.
