Period country home with large gardens in a delightful semi-rural setting.
Heronswood is a handsome, detached home situated in sought after Welders Lane in a wonderful semi-rural location. The total accommodation extends to over 5,000 sq ft over three floors, alongside a detached, self contained one bedroom annexe.
A vaulted reception hall, with galleried landing above, creates a fabulous first impression, with a guest cloakroom and stairs to the first floor. The ground floor accommodation flows well, with a generously proportioned sitting/dining room overlooking the garden, offering ample space for entertaining family and friends. Features include a library area, contemporary inset fire and two sets of bi-fold doors to the garden. Sliding doors lead through to a family room with a fireplace and open fire. The kitchen/breakfast/dining room serves as the heart of the family home, with the kitchen offering a comprehensive range of country style units complemented by granite worktops, with integrated appliances and a breakfast bar. The dining room benefits from built-in seating while double doors lead though to the study, with bespoke cabinetry and French doors to the garden. Just off the kitchen is a fully fitted separate utility/boot room. On the first floor the galleried landing is impressive, leading to four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom overlooks the garden and benefits from a dressing room and luxurious en suite bathroom. Two further bedrooms both have well-appointed en suite shower rooms. On the top floor is an additional bedroom/games room, with an en suite shower room.
The house occupies a generous and mature plot, just over one acre in all. Set back from the road and enjoying a large frontage, a gated driveway provides plenty of parking. The attractive rear garden is landscaped to include a large area of lawn interspersed with specimen trees and well stocked beds and borders. High hedging and mature trees afford a good degree of seclusion. The garden is extensive, backing on to woodland to the rear with a private gate giving access, ideal for dog owners. Adjoining the house, the Box bordered terrace provides a superb area to relax, entertain and enjoy the outlook. Further highlights include an enclosed hard tennis court, kitchen garden area and a variety of apple trees. The annexe apartment is totally self-contained, with its own private entrance, kitchen/sitting/dining room downstairs, with a bedroom and en suite shower room upstairs.

I particularly love the setting, semi-rural but so convenient.Ben DommettProperty agent
