A substantial period home in the very heart of the village, set in beautiful gardens of about half an acre with detached garage block and annex and swimming pool.
Charlwood House is a beautiful period home built in a Georgian style and forming the major part of this imposing building, but is only partly attached as shown on the floorplan. The house has been beautifully kept and cared for by the present owners for in excess of forty years and incorporates a comfortable blend of honest and traditional character with the highest quality modern fittings and finishes. The end result is an exquisite family home providing for every aspect of modern family living. The accommodation in the main house is arranged over two floors and extends to about 3,027 square feet, with a further 1,226 square feet in the detached garage and annexe, all detailed in the floor plan.
The gardens measure about half an acre in total with a wonderful southerly aspect. The front of the property is approached along a sweeping gravel driveway which provides substantial parking and access to the detached garage and annexe. The impressive front entrance leads through into the beautiful receiving hall. The front aspect drawing room has impressive high ceilings, an ornate fireplace and front aspect bay window. The dining room is open plan with a fireplace, wood burning stove and views out over the garden. The sitting room also has a bay window overlooking the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a beautiful range of modern units with crafted marble worktops and integral appliances including a Rangemaster stove and has doors that open on to a small terrace. There is also a separate utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor the elegant galleried landing is a lovely feature. Four of the bedrooms benefit from en suite shower rooms and there are two further bedrooms on this level.
The detached garage and annexe block is located on the north side of the property. There is a separate entrance to the annexe at the rear with a kitchenette and cloakroom on the ground floor. On the first floor of the annexe there is a sitting room, a principal suite with en suite bathroom, a further bedroom, utility room and separate shower room.
The beautiful rear garden has a mainly southerly and open aspect with a large terrace that incorporates the heated swimming pool. The remainder of the gardens are beautifully laid out with shaped lawns and a variety of mature trees and beautifully planted beds. The secluded barbecue terrace on the north side of the house is a perfect spot to spend a summers evening. There is the added advantage of an additional gated access from The Street that leads to the separate annexe entrance.
