About this property

  • Burlingham House is an elegantly proportioned Edwardian family home and a fine example of the Arts and Crafts movement. The property was designed by notable local architect, Alfred Claude Burlingham, using natural materials with the simplicity and sense of proportion which made this movement a benchmark for early twentieth century design.

    The property is visually very attractive and well balanced. It has mellow brick elevations with clay tile hanging and stone quoins under a clay tiled roof; the windows have leaded lights and the principal rooms have wide bay windows.

    The house is arranged over three floors, where spacious rooms with high ceilings and large windows bring in plenty of light. There are abundant original features which the current owners have carefully preserved, with picture rails, attractive fireplaces, ornamental cornicing and original pine panel doors throughout. A particularly fine turning staircase with oak balustrade leads to the first floor with a galleried landing, opposite which is a large window with stained glass panel.
    The current owners have made significant improvements to this fabulous home including new windows throughout; a high quality oak fitted kitchen with granite worktops, solar EPV and an air source heat pump (with gas back up); new bathrooms; a recent complete reroof and insulation; Redcare monitored security system; EV charging point; an oak framed gazebo with tiled roof in the grounds; and attractive garden lighting on remote control. The grounds are completely secured with five bar gates to the carriage sweep drive at the front and double gates to each side of the house.

    The accommodation is arranged around the beautifully spacious reception hallway with herringbone quarry tiled floor (emulating the original) and the house flows wonderfully from there; the dual aspect drawing room has a feature marble fireplace with stove and bay window overlooking the gardens; the elegant dual aspect sitting room also has a feature inglenook fireplace and square bay window; the stunning formal dining room has a marble fireplace with stove and an expansive bay window with door giving on to the garden.

    The beautifully refitted, high quality oak kitchen/breakfast room has granite worktops and a quarry tile floor. This leads into a generous sized utility room which in turn flows into the stunning dining room. A boot room, walk in pantry, cloakroom and understairs wine store complete the ground floor accommodation.

    On the first floor, there is a spacious principal bedroom suite with oak fitted wardrobes and luxury en suite bathroom. There are three further generous bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate toilet.

    On the second floor is a guest suite comprising bedroom five with en suite shower room. Finally there is bedroom six which is a large room currently used as a family room/gym with study space and large linen storage cupboard. There is access to large eaves storage areas from this room and the landing on the second floor.

    The property is approached via twin five bar gates over cobbles to a very large front garden with sweeping gravelled driveway, which has very plentiful parking and access via double wooden gates to a brick built garage. There are delightful, south facing, landscaped gardens which are part walled, with feature extensive Indian Sandstone paved areas both to the sides and rear of the house. A raised lawn is edged by attractive shrubs and trees. The oak framed gazebo provides a covered area ideal for entertaining and barbeques. There is a gardener's toilet outside.

This is a simply stunning example of a traditional character home, I love the character and high quality finish that the present owners have restored it to.
